CNN's Jake Tapper Lets Loose On Kellyanne Conway

Kellyanne Conway has already given us so many amazing bits.  "Alternative facts." The "Bowling Green Massacre."  

Every single time she speaks, Kellyanne Conway gives the world something great.  Yesterday was no different.

The interview on "The Lead" started out pretty normal.  Some questions about Betsy DeVos and Vladimir Putin.  Nothing crazy.  But those were just warm-up questions.

Jake Tapper was primed and ready to fired.

Tapper said, "CNN and other media organizations cover terrorism all the time.  Saying we don't cover terrorism, that's just false."

Conway tried to reply with a nice, little spin by saying that CNN did great but that other news organizations did not.

Come on, Conway.  You know that isn't going to stop Jake.

Tapper continued, "You're spinning about the idea we don't want to be inured to that, that's a lovely spin, but that’s not what he was saying, Kellyanne.  He was saying the media does not cover these stories because we don't want to cover them, because we have some sort of agenda. That's what he was suggesting and it's offensive given the fact that CNN and other media organizations have reporters in danger right now in war zones covering ISIS. And I just don't understand how the president can make an attack like that."

He wasn't done there.

He added, "While we're on the subject of not addressing a terrorist attack, I want to ask you: in Quebec City last week, a white right-wing terrorist opened fire on a mosque.  A mosque filled with men, women and children. Six people were killed. President Trump has not said or tweeted one public word about this. You want to talk about ignoring terrorism? Why hasn't the president offered his sympathy to our neighbors in the north?"
