Liberals in the media are always trying to zing President Donald Trump in front of Trump’s White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, They never seem to learn their lesson, however, as the brilliant Conway always outwits them.
A recent example of this occurred when CNN host Brian Stelter had Conway on his show and tried to convince his TV audience that Trump is now “hated.” Said Stelter nastily, “Given President Trump’s historically low approval ratings, what specific steps are you and your colleagues taking to try to repair Trump’s credibility?”
Conway shot back, “The numbers that matter to America is the 1.5 million jobs created on his watch, the 54 record highs in the stock market closes, the consumer confidence level at a 17-year higher, higher than both George W. Bush and President Obama.” Brian wouldn’t give up, and claimed baselessly that “the American people are not giving him credit, according to the polls.”
This set Kellyanne off and she ripped the network, saying, “You have the voice going through your promos saying ‘CNN: the most trusted name in news.’ What evidence do you have of that? I’ve seen polling numbers to the contrary.” She went on, “CNN used to be a place where people can tune in and get the news all day long. Now they get spin and people’s opinions. CNN should own it. Why not say, ‘Look, it’s in our commercial interest at CNN to be anti-Trump. We’re profitable if we’re against the president, most of our viewers are against the president.’ Just own it. Don’t you think that would be more profitable for CNN?”
Brian tried one last time, alleging bizarrely that Trump is like a doctor whose patient has cancer. Said the host, “It’s like a doctor walks in and says you have cancer and it’s spreading throughout your body, but the good news is your legs and feet still work. It’s great that I can walk but I want to treat the cancer, Kellyanne, and that’s why I’m asking about his historical low approval ratings.” Conway effortlessly destroyed him, firing back, “Wow, I’m not going to buy into that awful analogy because I know many people who are suffering with terminal cancer right now, so I think it’s a terrible analogy you just offered to the viewers.” She added, “I know there’s a lot of hand-wringing in the mainstream media that the country doesn’t need you to spin and filter what the president just said. They read his tweets when you read his tweets…They don’t need you to tell them what he just said.”
