Are you Oprah now: Kellyanne Conway slammed Chris Wallace as ‘ratings-hungry anchor’ (video)

  • by

Kellyanne Conway, who was then a White House staffer, appeared on Fox News in March 2019 to address the findings of the Mueller inquiry on the investigation into Russian intervention in the 2016 presidential election. The resurfaced video stems from several years ago when Kellyanne Conway confronted Chris Wallace directly as he asked about her marriage.

Meanwhile, ex FBI Director Robert Mueller’s inquiry found no evidence that then-President Trump performed a felony, it also did not “exonerate” him on obstruction of justice issues.

According to the study, neither Trump nor anybody in his close circle colluded with Russians during the election.

Conway would appear on “Fox News Sunday” to address the findings and “the huge letdown they represented for the Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd,” as she documented in her freshly released memoir, “Here’s the Deal.”

“This especially newsy weekend also included a surge in border crossings and Trump’s announcement that he was challenging Obamacare through the courts,” she noted. “I addressed all of that in response to Wallace’s questions. I held forth with facts and figures about the southern border and the state of healthcare and insurance coverage.”

Lucy Flores, a former Democratic applicant for governor in Nevada, accused Joe Biden of touching her improperly in 2014, according to the veteran pollster, according to reports.

Wallace, on the other hand, inquired about Conway’s spouse, George Conway, a conservative attorney turned Trump opponent who had made news for his fiery tweets criticizing her then-boss.

She was also not amused by the fact that she was being forced to discuss a topic that she didn’t believe was relevant given the current news cycle.

“Wallace, a ratings-hungry anchor, had a full plate of breaking news in front of him,” she added. “But he still found time to fit the other Conway into my segment. He introduced a new spin on the matter, echoing a theory from New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, who had told me at the British ambassador’s residence one night that she had declined an assignment from Vanity Fair to write a piece about George and me.”

And she continued: “As if he were covering the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 or the building of the border wall in 2019, Wallace asked me a question about my husband: ‘Do you think he’s cyberbullying here to try to get you to quit? Do you think he’s jealous of your high profile?’”

Conway was irritated by the line of questions and chose to steer clear of it, saying she will not be “bullied” into talking about her spouse.

“I had sadly and privately concluded that yes and possible were the answers to those questions, even though I was not going to be real-time and real-life bullied into discussing all this on national television,” she wrote. “Rather, I quickly shut down the line of inquiry. My children did not need their parents attacking each other publicly.”

She continued: “I was speaking as a mother, not just as a senior counselor or a spouse. But Wallace, the hard-news guy, was unmoved. He persisted and went for the clickbait.”

He responded: “I guess the question I have to ask, bottom line, final question: Has this hurt your marriage?”

She replied: “Oh, Chris, what are you, Oprah now? … I mean, what am I — on a couch and you are a psychiatrist?”
