Kellyanne Conway to CNN’s Jim Acosta: “You’re such a smartass… a lot of these people don’t like you”
Kellyanne is all of us
White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway is having none of CNN’s Jim Acosta. Acosta routinely uses press conferences and even event in which cameras are rolling (even the White House Easter Egg Roll) to create a scene, with the ultimate goal of making himself the story.
Conway, like most of us who cover this day-in, day-out, was just done.
During a press conference Tuesday afternoon, Conway called Acosta a “smartass” and informed him most of the reporters in the press pool don’t like him.
Acosta asked Conway if Trump would tell the truth during his national address at the southern border, scheduled for Tuesday night, saying, “Kellyanne, can you promise the president will tell the truth tonight?”
To which Conway roasted him. “Yes, Jim, and can you promise you will? The whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God? Am I allowed to mention God to you? Make sure that goes viral. This is why I’m one of the only people around here who even gives you the time of day. And let me get back in your face because you’re such a smartass most of the time and I know you want this to go viral,” she said. Pointing to the press pool, she continued, “A lot of these people don’t like you.”
