Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway went off on CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Thursday morning, slamming the network for “embarrassing” themselves.
After saying he doesn’t “want to talk about [her] marriage, I know there are issues there,” host Blitzer went on to ask Conway about her husband, George Conway‘s, remarks about President Donald Trump.
George Conway on MSNBC said on Wednesday, “The problem with Donald Trump is he always sees himself first. Trump is all about Trump. […] He was using the power of the presidency in its most unchecked area, foreign affairs, to advance his own personal interests as opposed to the country’s.”

“So before you play the clip, which I haven’t seen,” Kellyanne Conway said to Blitzer, adding, “Why? And why are you doing that?”
Following the clip of her husband, Kellyanne Conway said, “That’s his opinion,” and that she doesn’t believe “MSNBC was lacking in anti-Trump voices.”
She then torched CNN for playing the clip of her husband’s criticism of the president.
“I think you embarrassed yourself and I’m embarrassed for you because this is CNN now?”

“I looked up to you when I was in college and law school, I would turn on CNN to see what Wolf Blitzer had to say about war, famine, disruption abroad,” Kellyanne Conway added. “I really respected you for all those years as someone that would give you the news and now it’s what somebody’s husband says.”
