Top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway appeared agitated Tuesday after being told that the president disliked a New York Times reporter who frequently covers the White House.
During a Newseum event, Hollywood Reporter’s Michael Wolff asked Conway why Donald Trump gave interviews to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman.
“I know the president’s views of Maggie Haberman,” Wolff said. “And yet — why does he speak to her?”
“What do you mean his views of her?” Conway asked.
“His view of her is he doesn’t like her,” Wolff responded.
“Why would you say that?” Conway shot back.
“Well, because he’s told me,” Wolff said.
“Michael, I just have to push back. That’s just not true. I think it is inappropriate to say who the president does or does not like, respectfully.”
“And you just made my entire point about how he is covered like he is a guy sitting next to you on the bus. He’s the president of the United States.”

Maddow reveals how one state stood up to Trump’s USPS cuts — and won
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow's opening segment on Friday focused on a positive story of political pressure stopping one of the Trump administration's attacks on the U.S. Postal Service.
Maddow reported how NBC Montana reporter Maritsa Georgiou had doggedly reported on the removal of postal boxes in Missoula, where she is based. Missoula has been a long-time Democratic Party stronghold.
Montana has a competitive U.S. Senate election in 2020, with Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock challenging first-term Republican Sen. Steve Daines.
As Georgiou chased the story, she learned there were also plans to remove boxes in the battleground of Billings. And more planned for the blue town of Bozeman. And other towns.

Chad Wolf’s authority is ‘illegitimate’: Hispanic Caucus chairman demands DHS chief ‘resign in disgrace’
Immigrant rights groups and Texas Democrats are urging a review on the legality of Trump administration immigration policies after a government watchdog found two of the White House’s top immigration officials are not legally eligible to serve in their respective positions.
The Government Accountability Office on Friday determined that Chad Wolf, acting Department of Homeland Security secretary, and Ken Cuccinelli, a senior official performing deputy secretary duties, aren’t legally qualified to hold those posts.
United We Dream, an advocacy group pushing for immigration reform, said the GAO’s conclusion calls into question the latest guidance from the DHS on the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program that was initiated in 2012.
