Kellyanne Conway has made up terror attacks, coined the term "alternative facts" and now she's threatening CNN after being asked about her husband's political views. Conway's critics say TV networks should stop booking her for on-air appearances because she peddles falsehoods and only leaves viewers more confused. But Conway's defenders say she's simply doing her job and doing it well. She's selling President Trump's agenda to the American people and communicating the message he wants to get out. What do you think? 📺

Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway recently got into a spat with CNN's Dana Bash after Bash asked Conway about her husband's differing political views. 

Toward the end of a long interview during which Conway dodged question after question about her boss’ legal troubles, Bash asked her, “What is up with your husband’s tweets?”
After somehow working in yet another dig at Hillary Clinton, Conway told Bash, “It’s fascinating to me that CNN would go there. But it’s very good for the whole world to just witness that it’s now fair game how people’s spouses and significant others may differ with them. I’m really surprised, but very, in some ways, relieved and gratified to see that.”

Watch the full interview here:

Many feel Conway's latest back and forth with Bash and her threats toward CNN are proof, once again, the TV networks should stop booking her.

Conway expressed on Twitter that she was still unhappy with Bash's question about her husband's tweets.

After Kellyanne Conway coined the phrase "alternative facts" while defending Sean Spicer's lie about President Trump's inauguration crowd size, it was all downhill from there. 

She went on to blame former President Obama for the Las Vegas shooting, defend alleged child molester Roy Moore and reference a fake terror attack she called the Bowling Green Massacre

Many feel enough is enough.

But defenders of Conway say she is criticized so fiercely because she is good at her job. 

Jonah Goldberg argues in the National Review that Conway is treated unfairly by the mainstream media, and she is not the first communications official to lie on behalf of a politician.

Here’s a news flash for the news industry: Birds are gonna fly, fish are gonna swim, and politicians are gonna lie. The assumption that Conway is uniquely dishonest strikes me as not only preposterous but irrelevant. If she’s that dishonest, a good interviewer will make that clear to the viewer. Personally, I think Jake Tapper is more than capable of holding anyone’s feet to the fire.

And Conway has repeatedly defended herself and her duty to serve President Trump and get his message out into the world.
