Conway: Reporters Twitter Feeds Would Never Pass Editorial Muster

Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared on “Fox News Sunday” and told Chris Wallace that some of the things reporters tweeted out about the president and his administration would never pass “editorial muster.”

Wallace asked Conway about President Trump calling much of the media “fake news,” and White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon’s labeling the press “the opposition party”, and whether she understood how offensive that was.

“I understand how offensive it was to never be taken seriously that Donald Trump could be elected President,” Conway responded.

Conway went on to tell Wallace about the media coverage of the Trump administration, “It is an anti-Trump screed. It is completely disrespectful to the office of the president.”

“If you read people’s twitter feeds, that crap would never pass editorial muster in a newspaper or on your TV show or your network here. Nor should it,” Conway said regarding tweets about the Trump administration from some reporters.
