White House counselor Kellyanne Conway was trashing New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Wednesday night when Fox News host Martha MacCallum hit her with a rude awakening.
Conway accused the mayor of “lying to America” when he said he’s “been on top of” the coronavirus crisis from the beginning, pointing to tweets in which he encouraged New Yorkers to go out despite early warnings to the contrary from medical experts as well as his decision to visit his gym “one last time” as the state was being quarantined.
“I think it shows you the contrast in leadership when you have feckless leaders,” Conway said, referring to de Blasio, “or when you have a president, who’s publicly facing every single day, giving people information engagement they need.”
At that point, MacCallum interrupted, saying, “But Kellyanne…” While the host didn’t disagree with Conway’s characterization of de Blasio, MacCallum couldn’t stand by as the Trump counselor erased the weeks and weeks that the president spent downplaying the deadly virus.
“In terms of the things that you’re mentioning, you could probably match up, some of those early statements from him with also similarly optimistic statements from President Trump, although they’ve handled it very differently since then,” MacCallum said, arguably giving the president more credit than he deserves given his recent reversals on the value of social distancing.
