CNN host Alisyn Camerota wanted to talk about Russian interference in the 2016 elections. White House counselor Kellyanne Conway wanted to do something other than answer the same question over and over.
As a result, sparks flew between them during an interview Friday on CNN.
Camerota opened the interview by dwelling upon a Washington Post story that alleged to prove Russian interference.
Conway said there is a vast difference between media allegations and reality.
“No nexus has been proven between what Russia or any other foreign government tried to do and the actual election result,” Conway said. “We know that Donald Trump won fairly and squarely 306 electoral votes — it had nothing to do with interference.”
“But what about this new reporting?” asked Camerota, whose interview with Conway was only hours after the Post story was published. “What is the current White House doing about this?”
Conway said Trump has said he “would be concerned about anybody interfering in our democracy.”
Trump has taken a strong position on election interference, Conway said.
“The president has met with his national security team many times, he has an initiative or a commission on voter integrity,” Conway said. “And he, himself, has used the power of the bully pulpit to express his resistance to any type of outside interference.”
“Do you think that he’s done enough to send a signal to Russia to stop this?” Camerota said.
“I think the president has been very clear on how he feels about this issue and many others,” Conway said.
Camerota kept asking the question.
Alison Camerota interrupted or talked over Kellyanne Conway 35 times in 8 minutes. CNN bias 😝

“My question for you is, what is the White House, what is President Trump, now doing to prevent Russia from doing this again?” Camerota said.
“He has been very clear, on the record, that he believes in any type of numbers of measures to make sure that democracy flourishes, and that voter integrity is intact,” Conway said.
“Such as … ? What is he doing, specifically, to try to stop this?” Camerota interrupted.
“Alisyn, I realize that we just like to say the words ‘Russia, Russia’ to mislead the voters, and I know that CNN is aiding and abetting this nonsense as well,” Conway said. “But you’ve asked me this same question three times now, and I’ve answered it.”
