In a testy exchange this morning with Chris Cuomo, CNN’s New Day anchor, Kellyanne Conway asserted that it is inappropriate to question the timing of Donald Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey.
“You want to question the timing of when he fires, when he hires.” Conway said. “It’s inappropriate. He’ll do it when he wants to, just like he fired FBI Director Comey…”
The White House has sent press deputies far and wide as they scramble to respond to charges that Trump fired the FBI Director who was leading an investigation into alleged ties between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials. Conway’s assertion, however, that Trump’s action or timing should not be questioned may have deviated from sanctioned White House talking points.
Does her statement shed a little light on how the President sees himself?
