On Friday night, President Donald Trump’s adviser Kellyanne Conway attacked Democratic presidential candidate Corey Booker for being a man, apparently accusing him of sexism for running for president.
“What does Cory Booker have against all the women already running for president?” Conway asked. “Are they not good enough? Too weak?”
What does Cory Booker have against all the women already running for President?
Are they not good enough?
(They’re certainly liberal enough)

On Saturday, conservative CNN host S.E. Cupp responded to Conway’s remarks with a broadside in which she accused the Trump loyalist of crying wolf over sexism
“I know Kellyanne is just having fun gaslighting America, seeing what insane lies she can get us to believe, but it’s dumb crap like this that diminishes real sexism and makes people less likely to believe women when we say sexism is real,” Cupp said.
“She does this a lot,” Cupp continued. “Remember when she claimed Anderson Cooper’s eye-roll at her was sexist? Senator Mazie Hirono was sexist, in her opinion, for criticizing Brett Kavanaugh? Tim Kaine was sexist for interrupting a debate moderator? Chris Cuomo was sexist for interrupting her. MSNBC, sexist. New York Times columnist Brett Stevens, sexist too,” Cupp said. “It’s her go-to critique. By the time this is over, I’ll be sexist, too. The only thing worse than actual sexism is a woman who uses sexism to shut up her critics.”
Trump spokesperson goes down in flames up against progressive reporter: ‘All you do is lie!’
President Donald Trump's spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany went down in flames up against Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks during a CNN panel Wednesday.
McEnany went on to try and spin the president as some sort of great leader for Black Americans. She said that the campaign is very "proud" of the president's record on issues involving people of color.
"He also just said he wouldn't change his position on the Central Park Five," cut in Cuomo.
McEnany tried to cut in, but Cuomo cut in. "Now, he said we'll leave it at that. Come on."
"Chris, you come — come on, you," McEnany shot back. "We've been talking about the Central Park Five and racism and all of these things going back to the 2016 election, problem -- American people didn't believe it."
CNN analyst demolishes White House’s latest attempt to stonewall Congress: ‘There is no provision for this immunity’
Ahead of former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks being called to Congress to testify about former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation — during which she was, by all accounts, less than helpful — the Trump administration took the unprecedented step of advising Congress that Hicks was given "immunity" from talking to them by the president.
On CNN's "The Situation Room," national security analyst Shawn Turner demolished this legal strategy.
John Dean explains the big mistake Hope Hicks made by stonewalling Congress
Former White House counsel John Dean, a key figure in the Watergate scandal, said Wednesday on CNN that there was a serious flaw in the attempt to prevent longtime Trump confidant Hope Hicks from testifying to Congress.
White House lawyers have asserted that Hicks has absolute immunity and is not legally required to testify about her time as Trump's director of communications. Hicks testified Wednesday during a closed-door hearing before the House Judiciary Committee — where she reportedly refused to answer questions about her White House job.
"Privilege is not being asserted here. Instead, the White House says that Hicks has absolute immunity regarding the time that she spent at 1600 Pennsylvania. Does absolute immunity even exist? And if so, can you explain to me the difference between the two?" CNN host Brooke Baldwin asked Dean.
