Wow, Anderson Cooper wasn’t having any of Kellyanne Conway’s sh*t tonight!
For 13 minutes, Cooper and Conway went at it, with all the focus on Trump’s lies, and with Conway desperately trying to spin everything in Trump’s favor.
They had a discussion about Trump’s repeated speculation over the FBI review of emails found on a laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner. Hours earlier, FBI Director James Comey again cleared Hillary Clinton in the matter after saying late last month that the newly-discovered emails could be “pertinent” to the investigation into her use of a private server while secretary of state.
Cooper asked Conway, “Is it responsible for someone who might be president of the United States to be, in your words, ‘speculating’ about an active investigation when he has no actual facts?”
When Conway attempted to steer the conversation to Clinton’s use of a private server, Cooper pressed on.
“Right, you are not answering the question, though,” he said, with irritation rising in his voice. “Is it irresponsible for a man who might be president of the United States to speculate about something about which he has no facts?”
“Everybody on CNN speculated 24/7,” Conway fired back.
“If everybody jumped off a bridge it doesn’t mean you should jump off a bridge, too … again, I am just trying to ask,” interjected Cooper. “Don’t you think it’s irresponsible?”
“No,” Conway replied, “I don’t think it’s irresponsible.”
It is 13-minutes of back and forth, and everything that comes out of Conway’s mouth is a lie. I don’t like the woman, but man is she good at the spin machine.
