Kellyanne Conway appeared on CNN where she acted like a wounded pet as Jake Tapper grilled her incessantly about her lies and the lies from the Trump administration. For once she seemed humbled.
Kellyanne Conway confronted the administration's lies
Jake Tapper did not play nice with Kellyanne Conway who appeared on CNN after rumors of her being banned for her lies and credibility issues. The interview was fascinating because Conway came with an olive branch. She displayed a begging-for-acceptance demeanor.
Jake Tapper first confronted Conway with the lie Trump told a few days ago where he said that the media did not cover many terrorist acts. Tapper showed that in fact most of the events were covered by CNN.
"Saying that we don't cover terrorism, " Jake said. "That's just false.
Conway tried to dilute the President's statements by saying Trump was referring to some stories. Tapper pointed out that a white nationalist terrorist in Canada murdered six innocent Canadians and Trump tweeted nothing about it. He can tweet about a failed machete attack in France. Conway's response was that Trump does not tweet about everything.
But Tapper was not done. He pointed out that in the list of terrorist acts the White House released, all terrorist attacks were by Muslims. Trump did not mention any of the terrorist acts by non-Muslims.
Later he simply enumerated the lies.
"How about the President's statements, Kellyanne," an exasperated Tapper said. "How about the President's statements that are false; Like the murder rate is the highest its been in almost half a century. FALSE. ... I am talking about the President of the United States saying thigs that are not true, demonstrably not true. That is important and arguably more important than whoever reached you at your daughter's place."
Conway must have read some polls.
