Kellyanne Conway came out of hiding last night to talk with Anderson Cooper on CNN and defend Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey.
Cooper grilled Conway who told Cooper he was
“looking at the wrong set of facts.”
Recalling her “alternative facts” statement about the inauguration crowd size. The result is another GIF-worthy reaction from Cooper.
After Cooper showed video of candidate Trump talking up Comey, which Conway reacted to by bragging about winning the election. Cooper told Conway,
“As a candidate, Donald Trump praised James Comey. Donald Trump talked about this on the campaign all the time. All of sudden the White House is concerned about James Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s email?”
Cooper pressed on, questioning why all of a sudden Trump and his administration is showing concern over the handling of the Clinton emails investigation, when candidate Trump had a much different view.
“You’re going back to the campaign. This man is the president of the United States. He acted decisively today.”
Cooper shot back.
“That makes no sense. He said one thing as a candidate and now he’s concerned as president?”
Conway pointed to Trump saying in his letter that he was told by the FBI director that he was personally not under investigation,
“Yeah, when did he say that?”
“That’s between the president of the United States and director Comey.”
Copper then asked,
“You don’t think it looks odd at all that the president of the United States is firing the guy who’s leading the investigation into the president’s White House and the people around the president?”
“Well, let me repeat that the president has been told by the FBI director that he’s not under investigation. That’s right in the president’s letter.”
Cooper shot back,
“But, I mean, clearly this White House is under investigation. The people around the president are under investigation. You would agree with that, right?”
“No, I don’t,” “I know that some are obsessed with the word Russia, Russia.”
It’s amazing to witness. How much do we love Anderson Cooper?
