A top aide to President-elect Donald Trump is dismissing questions about Trump’s tweeting, asking why a network news anchor would care.
“Why take it up? Why take up ‘SNL’? No president does that. Why waste time? Why distract?” CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked Kellyanne Conway Monday morning.
“Why do you care?” Conway replied in the contentious interview.
Trump over the weekend tweeted criticisms of “Saturday Night Live” and repeatedly called on the “Hamilton” cast to apologize to Mike Pence for comments targeted at the vice president-elect.
“Who’s to say he can’t do that? Make a comment — spend five minutes sending a tweet, making a comment,” Conway said on Monday.
She then accused Cuomo of assigning “wrongdoing” and “malice” where it doesn’t exist.
“I think we should all learn from the election that this doesn’t fly with the voters,” she added.
