Interviewed by Alisyn Camerota on CNN this morning, Kellyanne Conway wanted to discuss the progress that the Trump admin has made on a variety of fronts, from job creation to regulation roll-back to health care.
But Camerota cared about one thing only: Russia, and a just-published Washinton Post report that Putin ordered efforts to hurt Hillary and help Trump. Eventually, Conway had enough:
“Alisyn, I know that we just like to say the word “Russia, Russia” to try to mislead the voters. And I know that CNN is aiding and abetting this nonsense as well.”
Shades of the Brady Bunch!
ALISYN CAMEROTA: But my question for you is, what is the White House, what is President Trump now doing to prevent Russia from doing this again?
KELLYANNE CONWAY: This report is new, and we’ll discuss it with him later. But he’s been very clear, on the record, that he believes in any type of numbers of measures to make sure that democracy flourishes and that voter integrity is intact.
CAMEROTA: Such as?
CONWAY: — he has an entire commission on that.
CAMEROTA: I mean, against Russia. What is he doing specifically to try to stop this?
CONWAY: Alisyn, I know that we just like to say the word “Russia, Russia” to mislead the voters. And I know that CNN is aiding and abetting this nonsense as well. But you’ve asked me the same question three times now —
CONWAY: — and I’ve answered it.
CAMEROTA: But you’re not answering it, Kellyanne.
CONWAY: Yes I am.
Note: after the interview ended, Conway got into a Twitter exchange on the subject with David Gregory, who was substitute-hosting alongside Camerota.
So concerned! Just not obsessed…like the voters, veterans, unemployed, Obamacare victims, opioid addicts, stock market, entrepreneurs. https://t.co/whoY00SAWF
