Women for Trump founder Amy Kremer flopped bigtime during a discussion with CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
After an overwhelming 30-minute interview with senior counselor Kellyanne Conway, Kremer seemed to parrot the same talking points that President Donald Trump never ordered hush payments to silence former lovers.
“Amy, let me ask you something,” Cuomo began. “Maybe I’m not making this clear. I’m not making a case against the president of the United States. Robert Ray, you know, Neal Katyal, they’re so much smarter than I’ll ever be. For me it’s not about the criminality. It’s about telling the truth to the American people. And I don’t know why that — just because this may not be a crime, let’s say, these payments to these women, let’s assume it’s not a crime, why is lying about it OK?”
Kremer responded by saying that Trump claimed he had nothing to do with it.
“How do you know he’s lying?” she asked.
“Because I have his voice on tape,” Cuomo shot back.
“You don’t know that,” she tried to claim.
“I have his voice on tape saying that he knows about it and directing the action,” Cuomo said.
“Was it his voice on tape?” Kremer asked, looking like a deer in headlights.
“Yep,” Cuomo replied.
“OK. Well,” Kremer struggled before pivoting to somehow blame Hillary Clinton. “Look, you know, I don’t know what goes on with the president and his legal team. There are many meetings that go on a campaign in this administration that we don’t have all the information for, but the problem here is that the one-sidedness of what CNN is trying to do, go after this president, and all the mainstream media, not just CNN, you are not talking about Hillary Clinton and the campaign finance–”
Cuomo cut her off to ask what Clinton has to do with Trump’s payoffs to former lovers.
It devolved into absurdity from there.

Sarah Sanders’ replacement ‘won’t last one day’ if they won’t lie for Trump like she did: CNN host
During a panel discussion on White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders' plan to depart her job working for President Donald Trump, CNN host Kate Bolduan scoffed at the idea that the president will employ anyone who doesn't lie like he does.
Speaking with CNN media analyst Brian Stelter, Bolduan asked about Sanders contentious tenure and her abrasive nature with the press.
"Essentially the post hasn't been filled in the traditional sense for a long time," Stelter explained. "95 days without a traditional briefing. Clearly, he's going to appoint somebody. The white house communications director role hasn't been filled in the way it traditionally is."
Ex-White House aide snaps at CNN’s Camerota after she calls out Sarah Sander’s lies
In a frequently contentious interview with CNN's Alisyn Camerota, former White House Communications director Anthony Scaramucci snapped at the CNN host when she pointed out exiting White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders' history of lying and attacking the press.
Asked about the timing of Sanders' departure, Scaramucci said the spokesperson had done her time -- one year serving on then-candidate Donald Trump's campaign and two years in the White House.
"She did a great job," Scaramucci attempted. "I know people have mixed views of her in places like this but I love her and think she did a great job and she is as an honest broker."
