Kellyanne Conway is upset about people going on TV and saying things 'that just aren't true'

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway unintentionally had the crowd cracking up during her interview Wednesday with journalist Michael Wolff at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. Conway, who defended demonstrably false claims about President Trump's inauguration crowd size as "alternative facts" during a television interview, aired her grievances Wednesday about the dishonesty she claimed runs rampant in the media. "You can turn on the TV — more than you can read in the paper because I assume editors are still doing their jobs in most places — and people literally say things that just aren't true," Conway said. When the audience laughed out loud, Conway responded with a smile and a nod.

Another moment from the interview that earned a chuckle from the crowd was when Wolff brought up The Washington Post's new tagline, "Democracy Dies in Darkness." "I'm going to tell you, when they say democracy dies in darkness, you're the darkness," Wolff said, to laughs. Conway replied, "I'm not the darkness."
