Did D.C. area private schools brush off Trump adviser? Reports about Conway are greatly exaggerated.

  Did D.C. area private schools brush off Trump adviser? Reports about Conway are greatly exaggerated. What really happened.

We'll be back soon! 2 New pro- Trump group takes form, with Kellyanne Conway possibly at the

“Come on, Kellyanne , he tweeted repeatedly. He called him weak and ineffective. So I mean, you want to give him credit for not attacking him at one rally?” she asked. By the end of the CNN interview , they had reached an impasse and all Keilar could do was thank Conway for being “generous” with her time. “Nice to be here,” Conway replied, though it was unclear whether there was any more truth to that than to her insistence that Trump doesn’t really want to jail his opponent.

President-elect Donald Trump lashed out on Twitter on Sunday against NBC's Meet the Press, saying the show edited out nine minutes of a 10-minute interview that host Chuck Todd did with Kellyanne Conway, Trump's top counselor.

"Kellyanne Conway went to @MeetThePress this morning for an interview with @chucktodd. Dishonest media cut out 9 of her 10 minutes. Terrible!," Trump tweeted.

Meet the Press tweeted out a link to the full interview with Conway, which Trump then re-tweeted.

Conway, who served as Trump's campaign manager before being chosen as his top adviser, appeared on Meet the Press on Sunday morning to discuss Russia's attempt to interfere with the U.S. presidential campaign by hacking the Democratic National Committee and other political groups.The U.S. intelligence community issued a report Friday concluding that Russians were trying to help Trump and hurt Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Trump: ObamaCare provides 'lousy healthcare'

  Trump: ObamaCare provides 'lousy healthcare' (ObamaCare) is "lousy healthcare.""The Democrat Governor.of Minnesota said 'The Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) is no longer affordable!' - And, it is lousy healthcare," Trump tweeted, referring to a remark Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton made in October.

At the beginning of the interview , Hannity said that Conway ’s has been mentioned for press secretary. Romney will have a short leash with President Trump , I have no worries. Instead Pence chose to be Politically Correct and undermined Trump ’s tweet which was a true to life response if Do you really think Conway would say Trump is turning away from things he said in his campaign?

The one thing I have learned about Trump is he plays the long game. He is not going for any short term gains on this. Do you really think that KellyAnne Conway is not coordinating with President Trump ? I know it’s been a The last refuge and its legion of intelligent posters always cut through the noise. Goodness me. Source was NOT PE Trump . Source in the interview was Kellyanne Conway !

Asked if Trump accepts the report's conclusion Conway said, "Look, we don't want any foreign government to interfere in the U.S."

"This man, Donald Trump, ran successfully on America first and he means it in every respect of the term," she said. "In terms of Russia...they did not succeed in throwing the election to Donald Trump. That's very clear in this report...There is no evidence that Russia succeeded in any alleged attempt to disrupt our democracy or in fact to influence the election results."

Conway clashed with Todd when she went on to claim that "respectfully, many in the mainstream media also tried to attempt to influence our election results for Hillary Clinton."

Todd responded: "Wait a minute, let's not conflate here the crutch of always trying to attack the media."

Conway: ‘We would welcome a call’ from Lewis .
Top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway defended the president-elect on Monday night, saying Donald Trump is everybody's president. When asked by Greta Van Sustren if the president-elect would "seek to resolve the rift" that's opened between himself and Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), Conway said Americans should consider what's been said over the past few days. "Let's review for everyone what was said, also, as we are reminding ev eryone and ourselves that Congressman Lewis is a civil rights and voting icon worthy of respect and his place in history, so no one can take that away from him," she said.
