Kellyanne Conway rants wildly in attack on fact checkers: ‘Americans are their own fact checkers’
Counselor to the president and former Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway blasted journalist fact-checking of the administration during an appearance on New York’s 710 WOR Radio with Mark Simone.
“Hey, Kellyanne Conway, here’s something you guys got to work on,” Simone counseled. “Liberals seize more and more control of the infrastructure, they control the newspapers, they control the networks.”
“In the last few years, they’ve taken total control of the fact checking sites, and they’re very slanted,” Simone claimed. “Something’s got to be done about this.”
“Yes, fact-checking the fact-checkers,” Conway agreed.
Trump’s State of the Union speech was fact-checked by the New York Times, the Washington Post, Associated Press, USA Today, ABC News, CBS News, NBC News and even the BBC.
“But look, Americans are their own fact checkers,” Conway said.
“The stock market is something they know about because they’re part of the investor class,” Conway claimed of the American people.
“And so, people know, they have their own facts and figures, in terms of meaning which facts and figures are important to them,” Conway continued.
“I just have the faith in people to see through that,” Conway said.
