Some things never change. One of those being the contentious, albeit entertaining nature of Kellyanne Conway and Chris Cuomo’s interviews.
On Wednesday, Conway was in the hot seat on Cuomo Primetime to take on Cuomo and answer his questions about the Trump presidency. It didn’t take long for things to go right from Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton, while discussing Russia.
“I was the campaign manager for the winning part of the campaign and the idea that we would have to look any further than Hillary Clinton to beat Hillary Clinton itself is a fantasy. I didn’t need to talk to anybody in Moscow… There is no reason to have to go anywhere outside of Hillary Clinton and how unattractive her policies were. How lacking in vision and connective tissue of the forgotten man and forgotten woman she was. We beat her fairly and squarely in this country, through this democratic process. So many people still can’t get over the election results.”
Cuomo quipped back with, “Says my friend who can’t keep Hillary Clinton’s name out of her mouth.”
“Excuse me,” Kellyanne said. “I’ll make you a deal, Chris. I’ll never talk about her again, but then you can’t talk about the 2016 election because she lost that election!”
After talking over each other for a few sentences Cuomo said again, “You guys are frozen in that moment.”
To which Conway actually said, “Nobody here talks about her. Hey Chris, Nobody here talks about Hillary Clinton here.”
It’s worth noting that her boss, Donald Trump, mentioned Hillary Clinton’s name several times at today’s press conference, as CNN’s Brian Stelter noticed:
3pm: President Trump repeatedly brings up Hillary Clinton at a joint presser.
9pm: Kellyanne Conway says “we don’t care about her. Nobody here talks about her. Hey Chris, nobody here talks about Hillary Clinton.”
