‘That’s Not the Same Thing!’: Jake Tapper Had a Feisty Interview with Kellyanne Conway

tapper-conwayCNN’s Jake Tapper got into a pretty feisty 10+ minute back and forth with Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway today over everything from “Grievanceburg” to Trump’s cries of election rigging.

Tapper asked her if she was aware Trump would open that big speech yesterday with a “list of grievances.” Conway initially pointed to the rest of the speech before saying, “He delivers his own speeches… He has a privilege to say what he wants.”

Conway attempted to shift things to WikiLeaks but Tapper pressed her on the substance of Trump’s “Drain the Swamp” pledge before getting around to the rigged election talk.

Tapper highlighted a clip of Conway, back when she was behind Ted Cruz months ago, saying Trump should stop whining about rigged systems. Conway insisted that was different and attempted to point to Al Gore.

That set Tapper off, saying that is most certainly not the same thing.

And when Conway brought up the Clinton Foundation, Tapper pointed out that at least Team Clinton has been marginally more transparent than Team Trump.
