Kellyanne Conway to do fewer TV appearances after leaks allege she’s been backstabbing Sean Spicer

Published

on

Top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway has been a ubiquitous presence on major network and cable news programs for the past several months — but it looks like that will soon come to an end.

Conway tells CNN that she’s planning to “reduce my television exposure” in the days ahead, even as news shows such as Morning Joe have decided against bringing her on the air due to what they say are questions about her credibility.

Conway has taken heavy criticism for recent television appearances after she plugged Ivanka Trump’s clothing line — which likely violated federal laws against government officials promoting the private business interests of friends and relatives — and also claimed that former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn had President Donald Trump’s complete confidence mere hours before he was fired.

Elsewhere in the piece, unnamed sources tell CNN that Conway has been behind the whisper campaign against White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who has reportedly been on thin ice with the president after being brutally mocked by comedian Melissa McCarthy on Saturday Night Live.

Conway denied those accusations, and said that Spicer is “doing a great job with impossible odds,” while also praising him for having a “tenacity and focus that’s going to serve him well long term.”

It means Queen Elizabeth II's grandson Harry and his American TV actress wife Meghan will stop using the titles "royal highness" -- the same fate that befell his late mother Princess Diana after her divorce from Prince Charles in 1996.

Published

Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) spoke to local reporters on Saturday about her role in the upcoming Donald Trump impeachment trial.

Murkowski explained she would likely vote with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on an initial vote on whether to allow witnesses. However, she left the door open to voting for witnesses after House impeachment managers make their opening case.

"I don't know what more we need until I have been given the base case," she said. "We will have that opportunity to say 'yes' or 'no' ... and if we say 'yes,' the floor is open."

Overall, Murkowski said it was important for the trial to been viewed as fair.

White House press secretary urged to do her job: ‘We don’t pay you to be a Twitter troll’

Published

on

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham was blasted on Saturday over the confusion resulting from her refusal to hold daily press briefings.

CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy was alarmed that Grisham's assistant, Hogan Gidley, was forcing reporters to refer to his remarks as coming from a "sources close to the President's legal team."

Darcy noted that Trump had repeatedly questioned the veracity of unnamed sources, making it problematic for Gidley to demand to be quoted as such.
