Kellyanne Conway and CNN’s Jake Tapper got into a heated back and forth during a forum discussion that also involved Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook.
The CNN host asked Conway if she thought Trump’s recent tweet that accused millions of illegals of voting was “presidential behavior.” Tapper decried the accusation as a lie, though it has not be disproven.

“Well, he’s President-elect so that’s presidential behavior yes,” she said at the forum taped Thursday and aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “The fact is that this man is now President of the United States and he’s tackling very big issues … he is committed to making good on the promises on, frankly, the plans, and he’s going to be focused on that. Not everybody trying to nitpick what he does.”
“So the things that Bill Clinton did in the Oval Office that you criticized, those were presidential?” Tapper asked. “You are saying if the president does it, it’s presidential?”
“Are you actually comparing what Bill Clinton did in the Oval Office with a Twitter feed?” she fired back. “Shall we review for those who weren’t born then what President Clinton did in the Oval Office?”
