White House denies report it yanked Kellyanne Conway from TV after disastrous appearances

Published

on

A source told CNN on Wednesday that Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway had been yanked from doing TV shows by the White House after a string of disastrous appearances severely damaged her credibility.

Although Conway had made several statements that caused the White House headaches — including her embrace of what she described as “alternative facts” and her on-air plug for First Daughter Ivanka Trump’s clothing line — the final straw apparently came when Conway said that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had the “full confidence” of President Donald Trump just hours before he was fired.

A White House source tells CNN that Conway was pulled off the air for being “off message,” while a separate source “close to” the White House claims that getting Conway off the air has helped the administration have “much more of a drama-free week.”

Conway herself said that she planned on doing fewer TV appearances in the wake of her Flynn debacle, but this is the first time a report has claimed that she had been pulled off the air all together.

Several major cable news programs — including CNN’s State of the Union and MSNBC’s Morning Joe — have declined offers to have Conway appear over what they consider to be major credibility issues.

White House officials denied that the report was true after it was published by CNN.

“I’ve been invited on shows every day, including two Sunday shows. I’m trying to focus on other pieces of my portfolio,” Conway told CNN in an update.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Saturday he was making a "huge amount of progress" towards a Brexit deal with the EU, in an interview in which he compared Britain to the Incredible Hulk.

"But I'm going to go to that summit and I'm going to get a deal, I'm very confident. And if we don't get a deal then we'll come out on October 31."

His comments came ahead of talks with European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker and the EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, in Luxembourg on Monday.
