Fox News host Chris Wallace confronted White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Sunday about the overcrowding in migrant detention centers.
During an interview on Fox News Sunday, Wallace asked Conway why some migrant men were being kept in cages for more than 40 days when the law limits detention to 72 hours.
“You can look at the conditions there,” Wallace said. “It’s a disaster.”
Conway accused the media of ignoring the facilities that are not overcrowded. But Wallace pushed her for an answer.
“That facility was meant to be a 72-hour holding facility,” she said. “It’s not equipped to keep single males who have broken the law by coming here and were apprehended.”
“Does it help for the president to say conditions are pretty good and for Mike Pence to say they are pretty good?” Wallace wondered.
Conway insisted that some facilities are “pretty good.”
“Shouldn’t you be judged on the worst facilities?” Wallace asked.
“Those men get three hot meals,” Conway shot back. “They all have access to showers… They have access to deodorant, they have access to hygienic products, they have access to toothbrushes.”
The president’s counselor ended the interview by attacking an upcoming House hearing with former special counsel Robert Mueller.
“Nobody’s ever apologized to us,” Conway complained. “Sure, oversight has a function but I think the American people are watching the way that taxpayer dollars [are being spent by] a bunch of comb-overs wanting do-overs we don’t need.”
“Just another morning with Kellyanne Conway,” Wallace sighed, concluding the interview.

Trump told Rick Perry to ‘visit with Rudy’ when he asked why he called off meetings with Ukraine’s president: report
On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Energy Secretary Rick Perry was ordered by President Donald Trump to get in touch with his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani about "corruption" in Ukraine — at the same time that he and Giuliani were attempting to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to help him dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
Speaking to the Journal, Perry denied knowing anything about Trump going after Biden specifically, but said the Trump told him he was not "comfortable" that the Ukrainians had "straightened up their act" — an apparent reference to Trump's belief that Ukraine tried to interfere in the 2016 presidential election for Hillary Clinton.
Sondland was going to testify Trump gave the impression they should coordinate with Giuliani on Ukraine: report
European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland is slated to give testimony Thursday to the House committees on President Donald Trump's Ukraine scandal.
Sondland was slated to tell investigators that Trump gave him the impression that he and two other officials should coordinate with the president's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, The New York Times said in an explosive report Wednesday.
"That command effectively created a foreign policy back channel that cut the State Department and National Security Council out of deliberations involving a pivotal ally against Russia," The Times reported.
Trump’s lawyers are trying to tell Appeals Court they actually won the taxes lawsuit — but are still appealing
President Donald Trump's lawyers sent out a bizarre letter to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, making the case that they actually won their case to keep the president's taxes a secret. It's an odd take given that they're filing for an appeal.
Oct. 7, a federal judge dismissed Trump's efforts in a 75-page opinion calling the White House claim "extraordinary."
U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero explained that no occupant of the White House enjoys "absolute immunity from criminal process of any kind." Such a position "would constitute an overreach of executive power."
