WATCH: Seth Meyers busts Kellyanne Conway for downplaying importance of Trump’s tweets — with her own words
Late Night host Seth Meyers got in a shotat White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway for going on TV Monday morning to dismiss the importance of President Donald Trump’s tweets by digging into his own video archives and pulling evidence to the contrary.
That evidence? An interview he conducted with Conway in January where she stressed how vital Trump’s tweets are to reaching out to the public.
Noting that Conway blamed the media for paying undue attention to Trump’s tweets, Meyers first shared a clip of the combative Conway on the Today Show Monday morning, lamenting the “obsession with covering everything [President Donald Trump] says on Twitter, and not what he does as president.”
“The reason the press covers very little of what Trump does as president is because, as president, he does very little,” Meyers quipped.
“I’ll give her this: Kellyanne Conway has always been very clear Twitter is not Trump’s way to communicate with the public. If she had said otherwise, I would know,” Meyers continued before running a clip of Conway on his show in January.
“It’s his way to communicate directly with the people,” the Conway of January stated.
“Dammit,” Meyers exclaimed after the clip. “I really have to start watching my own show.”
