Chris Cuomo Tells Kellyanne Conway To ‘Go To Fox’ If She Wants To Spread Lies

On Thursday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo sat down with Kellyanne Conway to discuss Trump’s habit of lying.

But the pair constantly talked over each other.

Conway attempted to dodge Cuomo’s questions by stating the economy hit an all-time best record (though Trump inherited an upwardly mobile economy thanks to Obama) and that Trump kept his promises to the American people (except for the wall, not playing golf, cutting taxes for everyone, repealing Obamacare…).

Cuomo kept up with Conway’s rapid-fire shots, not allowing her to distract him from his ultimate question about Trump lying to the American people. 

He rebutted any of her positive claims, pointing out the racial disparity of employment rates and the fact that his infamous “drain the swamp” promise has backfired to say the least.

After 5 minutes of constant back-and-forth, Cuomo interrupted Conway again when she claimed that Trump was “breaking the back of the opioid crisis.” 

She sat back, laughed and said:

“Let me know when I can talk”.

At the time, Cuomo was in the middle of extending an olive branch. 

He told Conway despite the opioid crisis spreading under the Trump administration:

“You guys want to address it and I respect that.”

But when Conway insisted Cuomo tried to silence her, something she had earlier chalked up to sexism, Cuomo fired back.

The CNN host said:

“I can’t let you say things that aren’t true.” 

“That’s Fox.” 

“Go to Fox for that.”

According to viewers, Cuomo won the best clapback award for the contentious exchange.
