Senior White House advisor Kellyanne Conway unloaded on CNN’s Britan Stelter over the weekend; blasting the cable anchor for refusing to cover President Trump’s record-breaking job growth and impressive stock market gains, instead focusing on phony poll numbers.
Conway was speaking with Stelter on Sunday when the left-leaning anchor asked the advisor over President Trump’s “historically low approval ratings.”
“Given President Trump’s historically low approval ratings, what specific steps are you and your colleagues taking to try and repair Trump’s credibility?”
“So Brian, I think that’s the usual hyperbolic opening to one of CNN’s segments. Let me tell you about the numbers that matter to Americans,” Conway fired back. “The 1.5 million jobs created on his watch, the 54 record highs in the stock market, the consumer confidence at a 17 year high, which means higher than President George W. Bush and Barack Obama.”
“The American people are not giving him credit for the economic boom according to all of the polls,” pressed Stelter.
“Yes, they are. You have the voice going through all of your promos saying, ‘CNN, the most trusted name in news.’ What evidence do you have of that? I’ve seen polling numbers to the contrary on that,” she added. “You interrupted me because I was going through what CNN refuses to cover about President Trump.”
