Kellyanne Conway torched CNN “reporter” Jim Acosta for attempting to create a political stunt with a question he fielded her on Tuesday. Conway responded calling Acosta a “Smart ass” and none of his peers like him.
Acosta asked, “Kellyanne, can you promise the president will tell the truth tonight? Will he tell the truth?”
Conway fired back, “Yes, Jim. Do you promise that you will? The whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God? Am I allowed to mention God to you?”
Conway continued, “By the way, this is why I am one of the only people around here who even gives you the time of day … because you’re such a smart ass most of the time and I know you want this to go viral. A lot of these people here don’t like you …”
Conway noted, “Don’t you put it back in my face for all corrections your network needs to issue. I was on your network 25 or 26 times in 2018. I’m one of the last people here who even bothered to go on, and the disrespect you show to me personally, I’ll look past it.”
“Ma’am,” Acosta replied.
“Don’t call me ma’am,” Conway finished.
