Kellyanne Conway rebuked MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts after he questioned President Trump’s intentions in tweets following last week’s terror attack in London.
“Does he have a job today?” Conway asked on “Fox & Friends” Monday. “I mean, that is really over the top!”
In a segment on Sunday, Roberts had wondered if Trump was trying to “provoke” a terrorist attack in the United States.
“The president doesn’t want us to be politically correct, right? So let’s not be PC about this. Is the president trying to provoke a domestic terrorist attack with this Twitter rant only to prove himself right?” Roberts had asked.
Conway reacted to a clip of the comment when she hinted that the MSNBC anchor’s job should be on the line.
“When you hear things like that and people still keep their jobs, it’s truly remarkable,” Trump’s counselor said.
“I was asked on the flagship show on NBC earlier today if the President should apologize to the mayor of London; and this man is suggesting…but I won’t repeat it because it’s so defamatory,” Conway said, denouncing the media’s lack of coverage for the positive things the president is accomplishing.

“But look, for people on TV to be saying what they’re saying — a CNN anchor yesterday calling the President an expletive, Kathy Griffin, also of CNN, doing what she did last week — which is really over the top — and then, blaming the Trump family,” she said.
“I mean, people are really losing their minds over this presidency, instead of trying to cover the things that he’s doing to help all Americans and really coming together,” Conway continued. “Defeating terrorism and putting ISIS truly in retreat and eliminating them from the face of the earth should be a non-partisan issue in search of bipartisan support.”
