Kellyanne Conway Gets Her CNN Interview At the White House…And Jake Tapper Takes Her to the Woodshed!

08 Feb

Well…The gloves finally came off at CNN yesterday, and it wasn’t pretty. Chumph’s serial liar Kellyanne Conway got a taste of what a real interview is like – getting called on her lies.

Conway just discovered what happens when the media takes the gloves off.

In response to the White House’s declaration of war to CNN, Jake Tapper takes the gloves off

On Monday, legendary news anchor Dan Rather singled out CNN’s Jake Tapper as today’s journalistic standard. On Tuesday, Tapper showed off his talent in a 25-minute, wide-ranging showdown with White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway.

After Conway fabricated a terror attack — the so-called Bowling Green massacre — to justify a constitutionally-questionable travel ban, Tapper confidently held the high ground in the interview.

“You cited a massacre that didn’t happen. You said the media didn’t cover it,” Tapper said.

“What I mean is the media didn’t cover the masterminds,” Conway responded.

Throughout the heated interview, Tapper was determined to hold Conway and her boss accountable for their words, perhaps inspired by President Trump labeling CNN “fake news” and his denigration of the media at large.

“I guess the problem is, it is very difficult to hear criticisms of the media for making mistakes, and certainly the media makes mistakes,” Tapper said at one point during the interview. “But it’s very difficult to hear those criticisms from a White House that has such little regard, day in, day out, for facts, for truth.”

The host of CNN’s “The Lead” was clearly offended by the disparaging comments coming out of the White House. Conway argued that the media was unfairly covering the new administration, focusing on the negative stories while ignoring its scant successes. But Tapper was having none of that.

“What we’re talking about is the fact that the White House is waging war on people who are providing information, sometimes risking their lives to do so, saying that nothing we say is true. All of it is fake. I would much rather be talking to you about veterans issues,” Tapper said. “But instead, every day, there are these strains of attack and strains of falsehoods coming from the White House.”

    I’ve been kinda enjoying Tappers attitude the past few weeks. It’s been interesting to watch him put his professional hat on.

      I think he now has the green light from the management. Mrs Conway is in for a rough trip from now on.

      Noticed she said her kids were in Public Schools. I guess all the reputable Private Schools wouldn’t take them after her go-round with Sidwell Friends.
