‘She’s Good at Bullshit!’: Anchor Slams Kellyanne Conway With Blurted Admission
It’s no surprise that Kellyanne Conway is a very well respected and skilled tactician of verbal gymnastics; the former campaign manager for the Donald Trump candidacy was the first women in American history to successfully lead a campaign into the White House, and she was regularly tasked with the unenviable job of justifying Trump’s rhetoric during public appearances.
It’s a fact that was not lost on Mike Jerrick, one of the morning show anchors for Fox 29 in Philadelphia, who slammed Conway live on the air Monday by blurting out, “She’s good at bullshit!”
The conversation on the morning show was stemmed around the administration’s claims about inaugural crowd size over the weekend; one of the show’s guests admitted that Conway “is good,” at spinning the facts, as evidenced by her “alternative facts” blunder.
That’s when Jerrick put his foot down.
Co-anchor Alex Holley shot her colleague a death stare and apologized directly to the viewers at home. “We’re sorry about that,” she said sheepishly.
Jerrick half-heartedly offered, “Yeah, I apologize for that.” Watch above via WTXF-PHI (FOX).
