White House advisor Kellyanne Conway didn’t pull her punches after a CNN host tried to pull a nasty “gotcha moment” on her — and what she said was surprising.
During an interview on CNN’s “The Situation Room” with Wolf Blitzer, Conway was confronted by the liberal host over her husband’s recent comments on President Donald Trump.
“I just have a final question, a sensitive question, and it’s a political question,” Blitzer said. “It’s a substantive question. I don’t want to talk about your marriage. I know that there are issues there.”

Conway immediately became angry.
“Did you just say there are issues there!?” she replied. “You don’t want to talk… why would you say that!?”
Blitzer said he wanted Kellyanne’s comments on her husband’s recent criticism of the president.
“So before you play the clip which I haven’t seen. Why… why are you doing that!?” a visibly upset Conway asked.
Blitzer said her lawyer husband, George Conway, has been an outspoken critic of Trump’s since the election.
“And the relevance is, and, come on — wait for it, drum roll — that he’s married to me!?” Conway asked.

“He happens to be married to you,” Blitzer responded.
“What you just quoted is said every day by other voices, but you wanted to put it in my husband’s voice because you think somehow that that will help your ratings, or that you’re really sticking it to Kellyanne Conway,” she replied.
“Let me be very clear: You didn’t stick it to Kellyanne Conway,” she said. “I think you embarrassed yourself. I’m embarrassed for you… because this is CNN now!?”
“That is his opinion. I don’t think MSNBC was lacking for anti-Trump voices and we’ve heard things like that said on CNN for three years. And we’ve heard things like that said on [MSNBC] for three years,” Conway said. “Honestly, where is the shame? Where is the introspection?”
“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,” Conway said to the longtime CNN host.
“I really respected you for all those years as someone that would give you the news — and now the news is what somebody’s husband says on a different network,” she continued.
