WATCH Kellyanne Conway Have An On-Air Meltdown While Discussing Hillary Clinton

Donald Trump, along with members of the administration who go on television news shows to lie for him, are obsessed with Hillary Clinton. Even though it’s been almost a year since the election, Trump and his surrogates always bring up Clinton as a defense of their own nefarious actions.

Senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway appeared on CNN Friday morning and was asked by host Alisyn Camerota about new revelations that Trump’s 2016 campaign tried to get Julian Assange of WikiLeaks to find and release Clinton’s emails which were deleted from a private server. Conway said the connection between data firm Cambridge Analytica and Assange was no big deal. That led Camerota to ask:

“Are you comfortable that the Trump campaign, through Cambridge Analytica, had a connection to WikiLeaks?”

Conway immediately began lying:

“They didn’t have a connection to WikiLeaks.”

Camerota reminded Conway that the Trump campaign had given $6 million to Cambridge Analytica, and then added:

“They reached out to help with the data.”

Already foundering, Conway tried to sweep the whole matter away:

“No, not to help with the data. It was something about releasing the e-mails. I was the campaign manager and I couldn’t be bothered with that.”


But Camerota was far from finished with Conway, noting that if Clinton ran such a terrible campaign and the Trump team was so confident, why did they feel a need to get Assange and WikiLeaks involved.

Clearly on the defensive, Conway blurted out:

“People are now writing about our discussion, and earlier in your broadcast, two commentators mentioned, ‘Oh, we just like to talk about Hillary.’ You’re still talking about Hillary! I’ll make you a deal — I’ll never say a word [about Hillary] again.”

The CNN host then attempted to move on to another topic, but Conway suddenly went back to Clinton again, commenting:

“She was the loser, so you have to keep talking about her.”

When Camerota reminded Conway she had just said she wasn’t going to “say another word” about Clinton, the rattled White House aide snapped:

“No, you brought her up!”

As the Bard noted in Hamlet:

“The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”
