Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, suggested on Thursday that Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) was not acting “civilly” when he grilled Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about Trump’s private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
During a Fox & Friends interview, Conway accused Menendez of “screaming and insulting” Pompeo at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing.
“Under this president’s global leadership, America is back,” Conway told the hosts of Fox & Friends. “We are no longer on an apology tour. We are out there putting America first and that should attract Independents.”
According to Conway, Independents are natural Trump voters because “they don’t really like the government.”
Conway went on to claim that Pompeo “owned” some of the Democratic senators who wanted to know what Trump told Putin. She also accused Menendez of “preening for the cameras.”
“Bob Menendez [was] basically screaming and insulting Secretary of State Mike Pompeo,” Conway complained, adding that Independent voters “should look and see who’s acting civilly and getting things done.”
At Thursday’s hearing, Pompeo accused the Democratic senator of playing “games” with his questions about Trump’s meeting with Putin.
“I don’t appreciate you characterizing my questions,” Menendez told Pompeo. “My question is to get to the truth. We don’t know what the truth is. The only way we know what the truth is, what transpired in those two hours in a highly amazing period of time to spend alone one on one, is by understanding at least that if you were briefed by the president, what he told you. I don’t think that’s unfair to know.”

Alex Jones attacks Sandy Hook families’ lawyer as a ‘little white Jewboy’ in latest unhinged outburst
Alex Jones is dealing with ongoing legal battles with families of victims and survivors of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Jones is being accused of sending child pornography to the families and leading an ongoing attack on the families using his InfoWars network. However, his legal defense seems to hinge on attacking the plaintiffs' attorney, AboveTheLaw reported Thursday.
It was the child pornography that prompted Jones to lose his mind over attorney Chris Mattei. During the discovery phase of the trial, Mattei found the images and contacted the FBI, which he is required to do by law. But it sent Jones into an outright ragegasm in a video that was shown in court.
Trump, Trudeau mend fences at White House meeting
President Donald Trump hosted his Canadian counterpart Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday to mend fences after last year's diplomatic meltdown and to push the still un-ratified North American free trade deal.
The two men have had a rocky relationship since Trump walked out of a G7 summit in Quebec last June, but are keen for the trade deal, known as the USMCA, to kick in soon.
"It means a lot of jobs for our country, a lot of wealth for all three countries," Trump said alongside Trudeau in the Oval Office.
"This brings us into a position where we're not competing with each other, we're competing against the world."
Accused child molester Roy Moore set to re-launch Senate campaign against Democrat: Report
Accused child molester and twice-removed State Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore is set to re-launch his campaign for a U.S. Senate seat, currently held by Democrat Doug Jones. Moore lost to Jones in a special election to fill the Alabama seat held for decades by now-fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Moore, a right wing religious extremist, was publicly asked to not run again by President Donald Trump, and mocked by Jones over the past month as rumors grew of his interest in trying to win the seat again.
