Look At The ABSURD DEMAND Kellyanne Conway Just Made To News Networks

The Trump administration continues its assault on the free press and their demands are increasingly becoming more dangerous. On Sunday, Kellyanne Conway, senior adviser to President Donald Trump, escalated the administration’s attack against the media and demanded that network television reporters and commentators who “talked smack” about Trump be fired.

“Not one network person has been let go. Not one silly political analyst and pundit who talked smack all day long about Donald Trump has been let go,” Conway said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I’m too polite to mention their names, but they know who they are, and they are all wondering who will be the first to go,” she said in an angry tone.

She added that the networks should be “cleaning house,” firing “these people who said things that just weren’t true.”

Conway accused the media of focusing too much attention on her attempt last week to defend press secretary Sean Spicer flagrantly lying to reporters by claiming he was stating “alternative facts.”

Trump and his team spent much of his first week in office antagonizing the media. In his first White House press briefing on Monday, Spicer spent several minutes attacking the press and continued to defend his lying by claiming that “we can disagree with the facts.”

Then, in an interview with the New York Times on Wednesday, Trump’s counselor Steve Bannon, who ran Breitbart, a site that traffics in white nationalism, called the media “the opposition party” and said it should be silenced.

“The media should be humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while,” Bannon said.
