CNN has declared war on the Trump administration.
And the Trump administration is firing right back.
Kellyanne Conway appeared on CNN and left jaws on the floor with her destruction of CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
CNN was loaded for bear after a New York Times report stated Donald Trump, Jr. met with a Russian lawyer who claimed to have information that the Clinton campaign and the Democrats were colluding with the Russian government.
Conway gamely appeared on the anti-Trump network and quickly began to poke holes in CNN’s argument that the Trump campaign and Russia colluded.
Monday on CNN’s “New Day,” White House aide Kellyanne Conway and host Chris Cuomo had a heated exchange.
The argument centered around a New York Times report that in June 2016 Donald Trump, Jr., then-campaign chair Paul Manafort, and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner met with a Russian lawyer linked with the Kremlin.
After a long question by Cuomo, Conway said, “Aren’t you the least bit reluctant, if not embarrassed that you now talk about Russia more than you talk about America? Doesn’t this bother you?”
Cuomo shot back, “No Kellyanne, this matters.”
Conway said, “I think America matters.”
The back-and-forth continued with Conway saying, “Chris, you were just — okay. Listen. You were just able to speak two minutes uninterrupted, and I frankly think it was more punditry than reporting. So I would like to respond. If we were in court, your side would not even survive a motion to dismiss because you’ve got nothing. On this one, Don Jr. has very clearly said he was told that there would be some kind of information helpful to the campaign.
It quickly became very apparent there was not. Let me say something about who goes into these meetings in the Trump campaign. We were a very small operation. I was not involved in June. I was involved in July and became the campaign manager in August. It’s very typical to have principals in the meeting. We had a fraction of the staff that Clinton had over there. You’re trying to have your viewers think because these three principals were in there, it was viewed as some type of seriousness that simply is not true. This was standard operating procedure for the campaign.”
Conway also took shots at CNN for their recent run of fake news by throwing the charge of “credibility crisis” back in the network’s face.
The interview ran for over 30 minutes and was must-see TV.

Trump supporters cheered Conway for firing back at CNN for their Trump hatred and left-wing bias.
It was 30-plus minutes of riveting television.
And when it was over, Kellyanne Conway proved CNN wasn’t in her league.
