Kellyanne Destroys CNN 'Smarta**' Acosta
CNN’s Jim Acosta: “Kellyanne, can you promise the president will tell the truth tonight?”— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) January 8, 2019
Conway: “Yes, Jim. Do you promise that you will? ... this is why I am one of the only people around here who even gives you the time of day…because you’re such a smartass most of the time” pic.twitter.com/8fZ1iycl9R

"Kellyanne, can you promise the president will tell the truth tonight?" Acosta asked. "Will he tell the truth?"
"Yes, Jim. Do you promise that you will?" Conway responded. "The whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God? Am I allowed to mention God to you?"
"By the way, this is why I am one of the only people around here who even gives you the time of day … because you’re such a smarta** most of the time and I know you want this to go viral," Conway responded. "A lot of these people here don’t like you ..."
"Don't you put it back in my face for all corrections your network needs to issue," Conway continued. "I was on your network 25 or 26 times in 2018. I’m one of the last people here who even bothered to go on, and the disrespect you show to me personally, I’ll look past it."
Today's dust-up is the latest clash between CNN and the administration, which had previously revoked Acosta's press pass.
