Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway went into the belly of the beast Sunday to debate CNN host Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources. The contentious 30-minute interview featured a range of issues, but mainly underscored the reason certain people at CNN don’t want to have Conway as a guest.
And no, it’s not because of her “Bowling Green Massacre” misspeak back in February, but rather because the Counselor to the President absolutely refuses to let the liberal media get away with painting their anti-Trump narrative into the ground while the rest of America wonders what happened to the issues they care about.
Conway came firing right out the gate, stating that CNN has clearly made a “business decision” to be unfair to this president.
“Well here we are in New York at the CNN Time Warner studios happily conversing in the hallways between CNN hits,” Conway said. “So that tells you something. We’re very happy to come and take questions from an outlet that has been incredibly unfair and systematically against this president, I guess you made a business decision to do so,” Conway said. “But we’re here, trying to connect the American people with the president’s message and trying to answer your questions as respectfully as we can.”

“When you talk about these approval ratings, look at the approval on the economy. Look at the numbers that matter to people,” Conway told Stelter, citing issues like the economy, job creation, money saved, border crossings down, ISIS in retreat, and a cease-fire in Syrian.
Because heaven forbid CNN or another liberal media outlet talk about something President Trump is doing right.
“I appreciate your points about the president’s momentum,” Stelter answered. “But this is a White House in crisis whether you recognize it or not.”
“Why? I work there! Where do you get that? Back it up!” Conway fired back, adding. “That’s not fair. I constantly hear this out of the mouths of people who have never worked inside of any White House.”
When the CNN host cited the president’s low approval numbers, Conway aptly pointed out that those approval numbers are still higher than those of the media and Congress.
“Americans are looking at the media. they’re looking at Congress and saying, do your job. your job is not to Russia, Russia, Russia all day long and hoping that something will drop from heaven and this will be real and not phony.”
“You look at his job through the lens of Russia, I look at his job through the lens of America,” Conway said, adding again all the issues the news refuses to cover.
“It sounds like you should be an assignment editor, Kellyanne. I’m sure you could get a job in a newsroom,” Stelter said sarcastically.
“Why would I want that? I’m counselor to the president.”
