Appearing on Fox News Wednesday, White House counselor and ‘alternative facts guru’ Kellyanne Conway’s thought the Trump-friendly network would let her spin the facts about Trump’s policies. But her hopes were dashed when the host read a tweet from President Donald Trump, who once again tweeted about protests in the NFL, forcing her to respond on live television.
A Fox & Friends hosts began the interview by lobbying easy questions at Conway about Trump’s obsession with NFL players kneeling during the national anthem. But with just 30 seconds left in the segment, Trump broke news with his latest tweet about the NFL.
“We just got a brand new tweet!” Fox News host Brian Kilmeade announced, interrupting his co-host’s question.
Conway responded to the news by grinning ear-to-ear. But as co-host Abby Huntsman read the tweet, Conway’s smile literally melted off.
Spoke to Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys yesterday. Jerry is a winner who knows how to get things done. Players will stand for Country!

“It seems like he’s going to stay on this topic,” Huntsman pointed out. “A lot of critics are saying there’s so much on his plate right now, we’ve got to move on, this is a distraction. But it seems like he’s doing the opposite of that.”
Conway noted that the president had defended himself by saying, “Look, I work all the time. I can do many things at once.”
