Those who tuned into CNN this morning were in for an unusual treat. Host Chris Cuomo interviewed Kellyanne Conway, and the back and forth was interesting to watch. In fact, their interview began trending on Twitter, drew plenty of attention on social media, and caused many people to respond. Although it was fascinating to watch the two going at it on live TV, very little was resolved. Kellyanne Conway did her best to defend President Trump from every question Cuomo threw her way, and Cuomo likewise did his part shielding CNN’s reputation from a litany of attacks from Kellyanne.
Kellyanne Conway appeared on New Day, hosted by Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota. Although it was an early morning news show, both Cuomo and Conway were prepared for battle. Cuomo kept firing question after question at Conway, who repeatedly changed topics and fired her own questions about CNN’s choice of coverage (non-stop Russia news) back at Cuomo. The two disagreed on CNN’s focus, and Cuomo kept asking Conway about Trump’s ties to Russia and new reports about Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer during his father’s presidential campaign.
The interview was great to watch, and the sparring between the two at times was heated than almost comical. However, it never got to the point where any of the questions were answered or issues resolved. Kellyanne Conway later tweeted that she wanted to talk about America while all Cuomo and CNN wants to talk about is Russia. You can watch the full interview on video below, as well as a follow-up video Chris Cuomo provided on Instagram following the interview.
During the interview, Chris Cuomo pointed out several times that Kellyanne’s people were telling her to wrap it up. They didn’t. Cuomo and Conway continued the interview for over 30 minutes, bumping other scheduled segments. Some people remarked on social media that they didn’t think Kellyanne should have been given any airtime at all. Cuomo responded that not only is it important to have a conversation, but CNN also allowed Conway to speak over the allotted time.
