Fox News Host Confronts Kellyanne Conway on Trump’s Epstein Retweet

Fox News Host Confronts Kellyanne Conway on Trump’s Epstein RetweetPerhaps Kellyanne Conway thought she would have an easier time than usual on Fox News Sunday this week with regular host Chris Wallace on vacation. She was wrong. Right out of the gate, fill-in host Bill Hemmer confronted the White House counselor about President Trump’s retweet of a conspiracy theory linking Bill Clinton to Jeffrey Epstein’s prison suicide over the weekend. “I think the president just wants everything to be investigated,” Conway said before alluding to the alleged connection between Clinton and Epstein revealed in unsealed court documents the day before Epstein took his life.“There’s always this rush to we need transparency, we need accountability, when it involved fictional accusations like ‘collusion’ with Russia to swing an election,” she continued, attempting the claim political bias in the case. “This seems to be very concrete in that Jeffrey Epstein has done some very bad things over a number of years. So let’s continue to investigate that.” CNN’s Christiane Amanpour Relentlessly Grills Kellyanne Conway on Trump’s Role in ShootingsHemmer could have moved on, but he didn’t. “Back on the retweet quickly, it’s clear what he was trying to say, wasn’t it?” While CNN’s Jake Tapper pointedly refused to show the tweet in question on screen, Fox put it up for its audience to see in full. “I think the president just wants everything to be investigated,” Conway replied, before pivoting to attack the media for highlighting Trump’s connection to Epstein. “Trying to connect the president to this monster from years ago where they’re seen dancing in a video versus other people who were actively flying around with this monster, on his island, which was known as pedophilia island, perhaps there’s a public interest in knowing more about that.” “But again, this is all speculative and it’s not for me to go further than where the DOJ and FBI are right now,” she added. But she apparently has no problem with her boss amplifying the wild “speculation” of others on Twitter.

CNN’s Christiane Amanpour Relentlessly Grills Kellyanne Conway on Trump’s Role in Shootings

CNN’s Christiane Amanpour Relentlessly Grills Kellyanne Conway on Trump’s Role in ShootingsWhen CNN host Christiane Amanpour came face to face with Kellyanne Conway on Monday evening, she wasted no time addressing the “10-ton gorilla in the room” after a pair of deadly mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio over the weekend.“You are his senior counselor, and many, many people are asking whether now, all these words that he's used, all these phrases that he's used, will he follow up on what he urged the country today to put aside racial hatred, white supremacy and just stop all this hatred?” Amanpour asked Conway. “Will he do that now?” Saying that “he already did it,” Conway turned around to accuse the Democrats running to unseat her boss of using “really hateful language.” Amanpour reminded her that Trump also accused the “fake news” of “spreading hatred and division” in the wake of the shootings. Kellyanne Conway Blames Obama, Hillary, CNN for Gun Violence After VegasAmanpour kept coming back to the rhetoric that Trump has used and was directly echoed in the El Paso shooter’s manifesto, including the description of an “invasion” at the Southern border. She also played the clip of Trump laughing during a rally in the Florida panhandle earlier this year when someone in his audience suggested “shooting” migrants. “Only in the panhandle can you get away with that statement,” the president joked. “Kellyanne, you're his senior counselor, you are really close to him,” Amanpour said. “Do you countenance those words that the president uses? Do you try to tell him not to use those words like ‘invasion,’ like ‘infestation,’ like all the words he uses which are associated with hate speech?” Again, Conway deflected, trying to make the conversation about James Comey, Robert Mueller and the death penalty. “I'd like to know if the 2020 crowd who was preening and screaming all over your network and elsewhere is going to look America in the eye and somehow tell us that the death penalty should not be considered for this monster,” she said. “I'm trying to have a grown-up conversation with you,” Amanpour replied at one point in an effort to get the interview back on track. When Conway accused the host of “not wanting to talk about” the opioid crisis, Amanpour shot back, “No, no, it's not that I don't want to talk about it” and “we're not talking about border security right now.” Finally, returning to her original question, Amanpour asked, “I'm asking you, will you and the president's advisors seek to restrict his Twitter use and his other use of these words?” As Conway stalled, she added, “Yes or no?  It's simple because if it's no, it's stays there at the top.” Conway ultimately refused to say one way or the other: “I'm not telling you what I discuss with the president.” Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Samantha Bee Shocked Kellyanne Conway Somehow Even ‘More Racist’ Than Trump

Samantha Bee Shocked Kellyanne Conway Somehow Even ‘More Racist’ Than TrumpTBSSamantha Bee didn’t have time to cover all of President Trump’s recent “racisms,” instead choosing to zero in on his demand that four freshmen Congresswomen of color go back to the countries “from which they came.” “Sadly, the only thing that should surprise anyone is that he wrote ‘from which they came’ to avoid ending a sentence with a preposition,” the Full Frontal host joked. “Way to go, Shakespeare, now return your head to the orifice from which it came.” “Of course, it wasn't long before spokes-golem Kellyanne Conway leapt to his defense by somehow sounding more racist than her boss,” Bee continued before playing the clip of the White House counselor literally responding to a reporter’s question with, “What’s your ethnicity?” “Fun fact,” Bee said, “that's also how she answers the phone.”  Seth Meyers Tears Into Cowardly Republicans Hiding from Racist Trump TweetsFrom there, she moved onto the resolution condemning Trump’s remarks that passed the House with the support of only four Republican members. “So most House Republicans are A-OK with racism,” Bee said, “which is great news if Biden is elected because at least he has a history of working with segregationists.” The host spent the rest of her opening segment breaking down just how racist Trump’s policies are, including his efforts to stop even legal immigration to the United States. “It’s almost as if he doesn’t like people from certain parts of the world or something,” Bee said. “God, if only there were a word for that.” For more, listen to Samantha Bee on The Last Laugh podcast below.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Kellyanne Conway Snaps Back at Reporter: ‘What’s Your Ethnicity?’

Kellyanne Conway Snaps Back at Reporter: ‘What’s Your Ethnicity?’When White House reporter Andrew Feinberg posed a question to Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday about the president’s racist tweets against the four congresswomen known as the “Squad,” he found himself taken aback by her response. Feinberg, a reporter for the website BeltwayBreakfast.com, asked the White House counselor which countries President Donald Trump was referring to when he suggested Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar—all U.S. citizens—should “go back” to where they came from. Instead of answering that question, Conway asked him, “What’s your ethnicity?” “Uh… why is that relevant?” Feinberg asked before Conway interrupted him to say, “Because I’m asking you a question.”Kellyanne Conway Calls AOC a Liar for Claim That Migrants Are ‘Drinking Out of Toilets’After Conway shares that her ancestors are from Ireland and Italy, the reporter said, “My ethnicity is not relevant to the question I’m asking you.” Conway still would not answer Feinberg’s question, instead insisting that he question was relevant because Trump said “originally” from—he didn’t—and going on a rant about how “a lot of us are sick and tired in this country of America coming last,” echoing comments she made on Fox News earlier in the day about the “Squad” representing a “dark underbelly in this country.” In that same Fox interview, Conway distanced herself from her husband George Conway, whose latest Washington Post column is headlined: “Trump is a racist president.” Reached for comment, Feinberg told The Daily Beast, “It’s not the first time she’s responded to one of my questions with an irrelevant question, but this time was particularly bizarre.”“I just wanted to get back to what I was asking her about,” he added, “so I was glad she was able to confirm the president’s thinking on the matter.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
