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

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.”

Don Lemon Takes Trumpazoid to the Woodshed Over “Black People Are Worse Off Now Than Ever”

Glad Lemon has finally found his courage and direction. Taking this horse’s patoot to the woodshed…

WATCH: Don Lemon opens up at can of whoop-ass on Corey Lewandowski over Trump’s fake black outreach

 

Tuesday night, CNN host Don Lemon gave former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski a lesson in black history as well as some stern advice for his boss when it comes to speaking to black voters.

After panelist Peter Beinart ridiculed Lewandowski’s defense of Trump’s comment that black communities are “absolutely in the worst shape that they’ve ever, ever, ever been in before,” the Trump advocate said it was “a fact.”

Lemon shut him down, saying, “As a person of color who has lived the last fifty years in this country, things have never been better for African-Americans.”

Later, after Lewandowski attempted to deflect from Trump’s racism by saying he has African-Americans working for him, Lemon took the former campaign manager — along with his boss — to the woodshed.

“Then why doesn’t he ask those African-American friends why the words he uses are so insulting?” Lemon asked. “Because I’m sure they would tell him, if they were indeed his friends, if they were indeed employees who weren’t afraid of him and of losing their jobs. They would sit down and say, ‘listen Mr. Trump, what you’re saying is insulting, and I know you’re not talking to me, you’re talking at me. And I know that you’re not actually reaching out to me, you’re reaching out to make other people more comfortable with voting for you.’ That’s what I would say to him as someone who has given him a chance and has interviewed him more than eight or nine times.”

“And if he, as a candidate for president of the United States, doesn’t understand that, then he doesn’t want to represent all of the people in this country.”
