CNN Rips Trump For A Week After He Reportedly Says "Good Morning"
CNN's Jake Tapper recently broke a story from the White House about President Donald Trump saying, "Good Morning" to a staffer. The story was leaked by an unnamed source. Tapper tore into the account ten different ways. He proved his investigative skills are unequaled. During a 6-minute interview with senior advisor Kellyanne Conway, Tapper grilled her about the alleged incident.
Tapper: "Kellyanne, can you confirm that the President did say 'Good morning' to a White House staffer?"
Conway: "Jake, I don't know why this is such a big deal to CNN."
Tapper: "Did he say the words?"
Conway: "I haven't spoken to the President about this. But I really don't see..."
Tapper: "Has the President ever said, 'Good morning' to you?"
Conway: "He says it to a lot of people. Sometimes he even says it in the afternoon or evening."
Tapper: "But has he said it to you? That's a very straightforward question, Kellyanne."
Conway: "Look, the President is simply Making America Great Again. One way he does that is by wishing people well. CNN seems to be running out of things for which they can slam the President."
Tapper: "Are you saying this is 'Fake News'?"
Conway: "I'm saying that Hillary lost, and now the President can't do anything right... I mean, someone leaked the fact that he said 'Good morning' and here we are."
Tapper: "Well, you keep dodging the question, Kellyanne."
Conway: "Jake, have you ever said, 'Good morning to anyone on your staff?"
Tapper: "Don't try to make this about me."
Anderson Cooper has since dedicated three shows to the topic, even asking Nancy Pelosi if saying "Good morning" is an impeachable offense, to which she replied, "Well, if it isn't, it should be."
For his part, President Trump tweeted out, "The fake news is reporting that I said Good Morning. I've never said good morning. There is no good morning. But sometimes I say good morning to people to cheer them up. But who cares? #StopTheLeaks"
