Kellyanne Conway embarrassed CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta during a press gaggle on Tuesday, referring to him as a "smarta--" unliked by other reporters. Acosta asked Conway if she could promise that President Trump would tell the truth when addressing the nation on Tuesday night. "Yes, Jim," Conway shot back, "Can you promise that you will? The whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God? Am I allowed to mention 'God' to you?"
Acosta - who has emerged as a household name for interruptions when Trump and members of his administration are made available to the press - responded by telling Conway that he doesn't have an "alternative facts" problem like she does. "Make sure that goes viral. This is why I'm one of the only people around here who gives you the time of day," Conway said. "You're such a smarta-- most of the time and I know you want this to go viral."
Dana Perino, host of The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino, co-host of The Five, and former Press Sec to President George W. Bush, joined Fox News Radio's Guy Benson and Marie Harf to discuss. Perino said she was lucky enough to never have had anyone at the White House treat her that way, but if she did she would have "popped him one". She goes on to say she would not have been as poised as Kellyanne was during that exchange.
