White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s interview with CNN’s Brian Stelter on “Reliable Sources” became explosive when Conway pushed a question about “Transparency” on the reporter. (RELATED: Kellyanne Conway is Furious After Recent White House Leaks- Promises Firings).
Conway saw what direction the interview was going and decided to take a stand: “If you want to talk about the 2016 election, let’s talk about it. I think everything should come out.”
Conway, who is the first women to run a successful presidential campaign, asked: “Tell America, did you vote for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump?” Quickly, as a response to the many questions about Conway’s husband’s political views, she added, “How did your wife vote?”
Stelter was clearly trying to push hard on the “Russia meddling” narrative probe, suggesting that the election results may have been invalid thanks to “collusion.” Conway is tough as nails and refused to take the bait. Instead, she turned the spotlight directly on media bias, asking if anyone at CNN has any real proof of Russia’s meddling costing Clinton the 2016 election.
Conway’s argument is an important one: CNN wants to cover this story to make Trump’s presidency an illegitimate one. And by doing so, a cable news network is attempting to invalidate the millions of Trump voters who showed up on election day to elect their preferred candidate.
As Conway opined, “Trump won states that Hillary Clinton ignored; his victory had nothing to do with Russia.”
Realizing that Conway was ready for a fight, Stelter responded that he thinks Russian involvement was “one of a hundred factors” that influenced the outcome.”
Conway fired back: “I’m not going to let you get away with saying Russia had anything to do with this election result. What is your evidence of that?”
Stelter’s “evidence” was the so-called “abuse” of stolen emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) by WikiLeaks.
Conway asked, “Did you just say something that a lot of people are your side of the aisle are not willing to admit?”
Hilariously, Stelter replied, “I’m not on a side of the aisle That’s an offensive remark.”
Stelter replied, “I did not vote for president. I left that spot blank on the ballot that day. But it’s not appropriate for you to go around asking people who they voted for.”
Conway concluded, “You probably didn’t think [Hillary] needed your help.”
Conway also destroyed the idea that Trump is attacking the media unfairly. The reality is, the media clearly wants to bring his Presidency to an early end and is functioning as a pro-Democrat political effort. The liberal #fakenews media has truly become the opposition party, through their biased and fake reports.
Watch the powerful exchange here. Conway is teaching conservatives exactly how to deal with #fakenews on CNN:
