CNN’s Jake Tapper was no match for Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign chair Kellyanne Conway.
In fact, she was so poised, it makes one wonder what a match-up between her and the former first lady might look like.
The interrogation began with Tapper asking if she knew Trump would start his Gettysburg speech with a rant about his accusers.
Instead of allowing him to corner her, Conway went right to explaining his 9-point plan and contract with America. She called it “specific and solution-centric” and pointed out that it includes how Trump is going to create jobs and expand educational opportunities for those in vocational and technical fields.
Several “gotcha” questions later, after Conway showed off her skills as a superior communicator, Tapper finally played his “trump card,” no pun intended.
He showed a clip of Conway, a Cruz supporter at the time, telling Trump that he needs to stop whining about the election being rigged. Tapper asked if it is a pattern with Trump to lose and then complain that the system is rigged. Immediately, Kellyanne set him straight.
“We love watching that clip together. But that was actually about what was happening on the weekends, where Donald Trump would win the vote, he would win all the, basically all the electoral votes in a state, and then on the weekends the Cruz campaign would go back and follow the rules and get back some of those delegates. So no, it’s not a pattern for him. I think if you had Hillary Clinton in this chair, and you asked her every hypothetical situation possible, would she, would she respect the results of the election? What if, just hypothetically speaking since it happened in 2000, out of six million votes cast in Florida, there was a difference of five hundred and thirty or so. Would, would Hillary Clinton accept the election results? Would Donald Trump be forced to? Or would they do what Al Gore did which is concede the election to George W. Bush, call back and retract the concession, and then throw it into an unprecedented five or six weeks, Jake, until the United States Supreme Court decided who the victor was in Florida.”
That is when Tapper lost it. Watch the video below:
