Mistress of Alternative Facts Kellyanne Conway sat down with The Hollywood Reporter’s Michael Wolff to discuss President Trump’s first 100 Days. At one point, Wolff looked Conway dead in the eyes and told her that she’s viewed as “the darkness” for many reporters.
“I’m going to tell you, when they say ‘democracy dies in darkness,’ you’re the darkness,” Wolff said, referring to the Washington Post’s front-page motto.
“I’m not the darkness,” Conway responded, accusing the media of exhibiting “presumptive negativity” in its coverage of Trump.
“It’s what I tell small children: Just because somebody says something doesn’t make it true,” she said. “It’s a great lesson for everyone.”
At another point, Conway lamented the lack of truthfulness on television.
“You can turn on the TV — more than you can read in the paper because I assume editors are still doing their jobs in most places — and people literally say things that just aren’t true,” Conway said, drawing laughter from the crowd.
