Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway naturally took to the cable news airwaves on Friday afternoon to comment on the bombshell news concerning new details the FBI will investigate regarding Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server and on MSNBC, she was pressured to withdraw her candidate’s insistence that the “system” is rigged to benefit Clinton.
NBC’s Chuck Todd tried to continue peddling the agenda of the “Big Three” networks and cover up the media’s deep connections to the Hillary Clinton campaign, on Sunday’s Meet the Press. Donald Trump’s Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway reminded him Trump went after the corrupt system as well, “And it did, unfortunately, include some in the media.” Todd retorted: “There was no political journalists in there. I get where you’re going with that, but that includes people that cover sports or entertainment.”
In an unusual turn of events, Chris Cuomo -- a liberal co-anchor of the Cable News Network's New Day morning program -- actually grilled Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, on Thursday regarding an unflattering email she sent regarding Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The missive -- which was released as part of the WikiLeaks' “document dumps” -- read: Clinton's “inability to just do a national interview and communicate genuine feelings of remorse and regret is now I fear becoming a character problem."
This morning on MSNBC Live, anchor Stephanie Ruhle interviewed Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and the interview quickly turned condescending. While defending Trump against the allegations and trying to pivot back to talk on Wikileaks, Ruhle lectured Conway that she was setting a bad example for her children by defending Trump. “You’ve got to look at your kids when you go home at night,” Ruhle scolded. “I don’t let my kids watch Donald Trump in the fear that he will say to a woman in the audience, ‘You’re fat,’” she added.
Wednesday’s Good Morning America was all in for Hillary Clinton. From the complete absence of any story on the Wikileaks e-mails on the Clintons, to a hostile interview from George Stephanopoulos to Kellyanne Conway. Talking to Donald Trump's campaign manager, the former Clinton staffer repeatedly grilled Conway about an anti-Hillary ad the Trump campaign had put out. “You’ve got a huge gap with women,” Stephanopoulos stated, “How are you going to be able to make that up, running ads like that?” he questioned.
On Monday, CBS This Morning hounded Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway over the second presidential debate. Norah O'Donnell wondered "what was the point" of spotlighting several of Bill Clinton's sexual abuse accusers just before the debate. Almost an hour earlier, O'Donnell and King, along with Charlie Rose, went much lighter on Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook.
On Monday, the hosts on NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning demanded Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway explain herself for daring to invite Bill Clinton’s sexual assault accusers to Sunday night’s debate. By contrast, Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook got nothing but softballs tossed his way on the same morning shows.
Soon after the end of Sunday’s presidential debate, CNN’s senior political correspondent Brianna Keilar rushed to the event’s spin room to lob softball questions to John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chair. “Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton the devil but also made a threat that if he were in charge of the laws of the country that he would jail her, that he would imprison her. What's the campaign's reaction,” Keilar asked, while completely ignoring Clinton’s latest WikiLeaks controversy.
As it did for the first presidential debate, CBS’s Late Show was live again on Tuesday night to comment on the vice presidential debate as host Stephen Colbert denigrated the Bible with a fake verse about Indiana pizza parlors and crudely joking that Republican nominee Mike Pence is gay giving blowjobs to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
A broken clock is right twice a day and former President Bill Clinton was certainly right Monday when he criticized ObamaCare for hurting working people. “…The people are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half,” he remarked at a campaign rally for his wife. The shocking admission by the liberal president went unreported by ABC Tuesday, while CBS and NBC aided in playing it down that evening.
Charlie Rose repeatedly promoted Hillary Clinton's latest attack on Donald Trump during an interview of Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday's CBS This Morning. Rose wondered, "Secretary Clinton said yesterday, what kind of a genius loses a billion dollars in the first place, so they get this kind of tax carryforward?" When Conway tried to answer, Rose interrupted and again asked, "What about losing a billion dollars? What kind of business genius was the question that Secretary Clinton posed?" He twice more pressed his guest on the subject: "How did he lose a billion dollars?"
Just like ABC’s interviews with VPs Mike Pence and Tim Kaine on Monday morning, this week’s interviews with the two presidential campaign managers were staggeringly different from each other. On Tuesday’s The View, the panel barely made Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook sweat, but pummelled Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway on Thursday with harsh questions. Completely serious, Whoopi actually remarked at the end of the program that they treat every guest "fair" and with uncomfortable questions. But watching the two interviews side-by-side, that's a far cry from reality.
