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.”

‘No comment’: Emails show the VA took no action to spare veterans from a harsh Trump immigration policy
The VA’s approach differs sharply from the Pentagon’s, which won an exemption for active-duty members of the military.
Top officials of the Department of Veterans Affairs declined to step in to try to exempt veterans and their families from a new immigration rule that would make it far easier to deny green cards to low-income immigrants, according to documents obtained by ProPublica under a Freedom of Information Act request.
Pilgrims gather for cosmic-like ritual in Bulgaria’s mountains
Thousands of pilgrims gathered Monday in Bulgaria's Rila mountains to welcome their "spiritual" new year with a cosmic-like dance performed in concentric circles, creating a striking image on the verdant mountain plain.
The white-clad dancers hiked up to Bulgaria's Seven Rila Lakes at an altitude of 2,100 metres (6,900 feet) and performed a special meditative dance known as "paneurhythmy" for more than an hour under the sound of singing and violins.
They are followers of the Universal White Brotherhood -- an esoteric society that combines Christianity and Indian mysticism and was founded by Bulgarian theologian Peter Deunov back in 1897 but banned during communism and still considered a sect by the country's Christian Orthodox Church.
NBA star Stephen Curry finances college golf team for six years
Three-time NBA champion Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors said Monday he will support the creation of Howard University's first top-level golf program for the next six years.
Curry, a six-time NBA All-Star guard and avid golfer, was inspired to make the contribution by Otis Ferguson IV, a senior at the Washington DC university who Curry met during a campus visit earlier this year.
Ferguson had been campaigning to establish a golf team at Howard. He found a backer in Curry, who decided establish men's and women's golf at the historically black college.
Two-time NBA Most Valuable Player Curry also persuaded golf equipment manufacturer Callaway to promise equipment and sport apparel giant Under Armour, who are one of his sponsors, to provide uniforms.
