How important would a caller be to interrupt someone’s appearance on live television?
White House advisor Kellyanne Conway was actually on her phone as “Fox & Friends” came back to the studio from a commercial break Friday morning.
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt told viewers Conway was on a “very important phone call” as the cameras went live in the studio.

“Kellyanne Conway, our special guest right now…is on the phone,” Steve Doocy said as Conway, seated on the end of the couch, pressed the phone to her ear.
“We’re going to chat with her as soon as she gets off the phone,” Earhardt added.
With President Trump a regular viewer of the show, often tweeting reactions as the Fox News morning program airs, one would have to speculate who could be so important to Conway that she would take a call despite directions that were probably coming from producers and directors of the show.
“Yes, I’m on right now. OK. I’m on Fox & Friends right now, do you want to say hello?” Conway asked as she began to end the call.
Doocy then asked the question on everyone’s mind.
“Are you talking to the president? Is that the president?” he said.
“I’ll never say,” Conway replied with a smile as she ended her call and put the phone down.
She then continued her time on the program defending the president and focusing on special counsel Robert Mueller.
Though Conway never did divulge if it was friend, family or president on the phone, there was plenty of speculation that it may have been Trump. Could it have had anything to do with the impending resignation of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer who made his announcement a short time later?
We may never know.
