‘I would like you to stop lying’: CNN’s Tapper confronts manic Kellyanne Conway over Trump lies about Daniels payoff

TOM BOGGIONI
06 MAY 2018 AT 09:58 ET

In a typical confrontational exchange between CNN host Jake Tapper and White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, an exasperated Tapper finally cut in on the filibustering aide to President Donald Trump to say he was tired of the lying. As the State of the Union host tried to get a straight answer out of Conway over the timeline of when Trump became aware that hush money was being paid to adult film star Stormy Daniels by his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, Conway continually deflected by talking about job numbers and complaining about how the network covers Trump.

“Do you think his job includes lying to the American people because he continues to do so?” Tapper asked.

“He does many things,” Conway shot back. “You just want that to go viral and you want to say President Trump and lie in the same sentence.”

“No, I would like you to stop lying,” Tapper interrupted.

1. Giving this woman any air time

at all damages the credibility of the host, show and network. Stop giving this sea hag a platform! My apologies to any sea hags that I offended by making that comparison.

8. Exactly right

Having her on gives her credibility she definitely doesn't deserve. Challenging her lies won't change that. Supposedly hosts have people on because they have something useful to day; this woman lies every time she opens her mouth, and CNN knows that.

11. I disagree, provided the host/hostess

strongly calls out her lies, interrupts her when she starts a lie, and basically just shows her and all the other Trump sycophants for the liars and hypocrites that they are.

17. Yes.

However, she pivots so well from one lie to another that it might be impossible to have any productive conversation with her. Any host who called her out on every one of her lies would get nothing else done. I vote for a media blackout of kellyanne. When she or the WH reaches out to media, their inquiry can be politely decline citing her inability to tell the truth.

10. It would kinda take the wind out of her sails to cut her off.


If the behavior persists and they have to cut her microphone over a certain number of times, just call time and END the interview. If the behavior continues over a specified number of interviews, just drop that person from the guest lists. If they reward the bad behavior by not calling them out, cutting the mic or just not having them on, the bad behavior will continue. Kellyanne NEEDS the exposure like a fish needs water. Cut her off from air time. Get her where she lives.

14. The NYT?

You mean the paper that has been keeping track of his lies? In this story headlined "Trump's Lies"?

Or in this recent column about the Daniels affair, headlined "Too Bad Rudy Doesn't Lie as Well as Trump"?

How about a Charles Blow column about Trump from February? "Lie, Exploit and Destroy"

Good! Thank you, jayschool

get her to answer a single question.

18. Exactly.

Good attempt, but she is such a skilled liar 🤥 that all he could do was sit back and watch. As it escalated, even he knew he’d lost control of the moment. Better to put KAC on the ignore list.

15. "You just want this to go viral"

 

No. You just want to ignore the negative, and that's not the way honest news works. That's the way propaganda works, and we're not a propaganda network, like "some say" other networks supportive of President Trump are!

21. I don't have the stamina to watch the whole clip.

I admire (that's one word for it) Conway's stamina and unwavering determination to deflect discussion of the President's credibility to the "wonderful" accomplishments he's taking credit for. But I find it exhausting to listen to Conway for more than 2 or 3 minutes.

24. KellyAnn Conjob is the master of the "Gish Gallup" and overtalking the interviewer

Credit Jake Tapper with not falling into the trap of trying to address the rapid flow of new diversionary topics she introduces.

I'd like to see more media figures call out, and quash the Gish gallup and overtalking. Republicans have normalized these forms of toxic discourse. We need to call them out so that they are obvious, and to normalize appropriate responses to them.

25. You'd figure CNN would realize by now that anytime they have someone like Conway on ...

People immediately change the channel, and probably don't checking back for the rest of the day, if not longer.

Who wants to listen to someone spewing out nonsensical lies and offering zero information?
