Kellyanne Conway chides CNN host over question about husband's Trump tweets

Kellyanne Conway chides CNN host over question about husband's Trump tweets

The exchange between the two women got off to a civil start, but quickly took a turn in the opposite direction when Bash asked Conway about Conway's husband, George, basically subtweeting her boss, President Donald Trump.

"It's fascinating that CNN would go there but very good for the whole world to have just witnessed that it is now fair game what people's... how people's spouses and significant others may differ with them".

Conway added that Bash's prompt "was meant to harass and embarrass" and suggested that she wouldn't have been asked that question if she were a man.

By trying to make herself look like a victim, Conway also conveniently ignores that Trump repeatedly targeted former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's wife, Jill McCabe, and even told McCabe to "ask his wife how it feels to be a loser".

Conway alleged a double-standard was in place that a male guest wouldn't be asked the same question.

Conway replied: "You just brought him into this, so this oughta be fun moving forward. You just went there".

TMZ asked the president's senior counselor whether she thought reports that US magazines were snubbing the current first lady were true, since Michelle Obama had been featured in at least a dozen magazines during her husband's eight years in office. "Are we going to do that?" "There has been a different standard for me than there have been for other people".

"It's fascinating to me that CNN would go there", she said.

"No.1 ... that woman who lost the election whose name I never say on TV anymore is wrong that women - I think she said white women have to listen to ... the men in their life to form their own political opinions", Conway responded.

Shortly after Conway's interview on CNN aired, her husband retweeted a message from Maggie Haberman, the New York Times' chief White House correspondent, who has been a recent subject of the President's ire online.

"[It] was created to embarrass Kellyanne Conway, and it was out-of-bounds", Kurtz said on "America's Newsroom".
