‘Kellyanne Conway is not the GOP’: Republican Senator blisters top Trump adviser over false healthcare claim
In a segment with CNN host Jim Scuitto, Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) scoffed at the concept that President Donald Trump’s spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway speaks for the GOP.
“Over the weekend, Kellyanne Conway, spokesperson and surrogate for the White House, made a remarkable claim that there aren’t any Medicaid cuts in this bill,” Scuitto said. “Is the GOP misleading Americans about what’s actually in this bill?”
“Kellyanne Conway is not the GOP,” Cassidy said.
“She’s a very close spokesperson for the president and speaks for the president,” Scuitto rebuffed.
“I just can’t address that,” Cassidy said, shaking his head before getting into specifics about the GOP’s bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.
