Kellyanne Conway came armored to defend President-elect Donald Trump and his tweeting-duel with the cast of the Broadway musical Hamilton on CNN. The almost-leader of the free world is spending his time punching the cast for addressing Vice President-elect Mike Pence. This is what she did.

When CNN’s Chris Cuomo called her on it, she said Trump has every right to use social media to send messages to the people and defend his opinions:

‘Why do you care? Who is to say that he can’t do that, make a comment, spend five minutes on a tweet and making a comment and still be president-elect?’

The senior advisor to Trump said that he is:

“…just trying to cut through the nonsense of people telling Americans what is important to them, which we saw through the elections wasn’t true. People constantly being told this issue, this statement, this past transgression is important to you — and Americans said, “No, it’s not. What’s important to me is this 100-day plan.”’

Cuomo argued:

‘That’s not what he’s tweeting about. He said that “Hamilton” is overrated.’

But Conway already had her finger on the trigger of Trump’s defense:

‘That’s his opinion. (The focus should be) on what [Trump] did this week as your president-elect, which was unbelievable, and I’m going to say unprecedented.’

Cuomo fired back:

‘So he doesn’t take any responsibility for his own tweets? It’s me focusing on it?’

But Conway was ready for him:

‘I didn’t say that. But you’re assigning malice and you’re assigning wrongdoing to him where it doesn’t exist. And I think we all should have learned a lesson from the election that that doesn’t fly with voters.’

So Cuomo tried to draw her in again, asking why the president-elect wasn’t tweeting about issues rather than frivolous matters. She hit back:

‘He’s not focusing on divisions. This network and other people will always be focused on his divisions. How about accepting the election results, and letting him form a government?’

Cuomo defended the CNN:

‘How have we not done that?’

That is when Conway changed tactics and moved the conversation to another direction. She defended the controversial Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions for attorney general, and spoke positively about Mitt Romney who may be up for secretary of state.
