Kellyanne Conway Blasts “Amateur Climatologist” Chris Cuomo For Asking About Climate Change [VIDEO]

The Washington Examiner reports:

Kellyanne Conway didn’t take kindly to Chris Cuomo insistence on talking about climate change during an interview about Hurricane Harvey disaster relief on Wednesday night, prompting her to say the CNN host was playing “amateur climatologist.”

Conway, who is counselor to President Trump, pushed back on Cuomo’s question, saying the focus should remain on helping “the people whose lives are literally underwater.”

“I’m not going to engage in that right now, because I work for a president and a vice president and a country that is very focused on helping the millions of affected Texans and god forbid Louisianans,” she said.

“Here’s the deal: You play amateur climatologist tonight and I will play professional helper to those in need and continue in my job here as counselor to the president,” Conway said before returning to the administration’s efforts to assist in helping those people impacted by Harvey.

  • Gigi

    At one time Cuomo said he wouldn’t have Conjob on anymore because she’s a lying POS. What gives?

    • Butch

      That was my question. He should know by now that she won’t say anything worth hearing. What’s the point?

      • agcons

        Making her look even more venal, if that’s possible.

    • Karl Dubhe

      boss said she brings viewers to the advertisers…

        Ooops, you beat me to it.

        CNN is about that money…this is HOW Trump got elected in the first place…

    • Michael R

      Yes , time to hold anyone who has her on responsible .

      • pete

        seth meyers handles her as well as anyone. the 2 times i’ve seen their encounters, she comes off worse.

    • Joe in PA

      $$$ [ratings] People love to see the sparks apparently. πŸ™

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      They’re running out of people from the WH that they can put on TV.

      Seriously, Politico had an article just yesterday or Monday, I think, that was all about that. Trump reportedly desperately wants to fire Tillerson and somebody else but he can’t because they have absolutely no one that they can replace them with.

      • pete

        not only aren’t they filling vacancies, they can’t keep the incumbents!

    • Rambie

      That decision on have her on is probably his boss’ or above and not under his control.

    • Rex

      She should be introduced as a comedy segment.

      • No More GOP.

        Horror.

    • Pressure from corporate.

    • RaygunsGoZap

      Because as much as one may like him and his needling of this administration, he’s not really a journalist and doesn’t actually hold to a sufficient level of professional integrity. He’s an entertainer, doing a show and making a buck. If good comes from that, he’ll feel good. If bad comes from it, he’ll find a way to live with it and carry on.

      • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

        And pocket our money that he’s wiping his ass with.

        #CNN Just, say no!

    • StreetBanana

      I wondered that too. Best thing they could do would be to ignore this dim bulb.

      I get that CNN has to fill 24 hours every day, but it’s not covering itself with glory here.

    • Lawerence Collins

      Corporate media. That’s what. He’s one of them.

    • CityWOOF

      That was Mika and Morning Joe.

    • JCF

      I thought that was “Morning Joe”?

  • HeyYouKidsGetOffMyLawn

    I see her human suit is starting to itch again……

  • BJORN RAGNVALDR

    Well, she’s playing an amateur human being…

  • Ernest Endevor

    “I will play professional helper.” Exactly.

  • Tawreos

    She got the professional correct, but she mispronounced liar.

  • Harveyrabbit

    That is when Cuomo should have introduced an actual Climatologist like Woody Allen introducing Marshall McLuhan in Annie Hall to settle an argument. If only life was like the movies. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e74403cbed55f3d3955ac88271f283cd5583e8f810ad2bc45291ab4ce0ab4b01.jpg

    • Tawreos

      Unfortunately, having an expert ready to go to rebut whatever cray cray Kellyanne pulls out of her ass on any given day would be prohibitively expensive.

      • Michael White

        I suggest any high school political science student could leave her statements in tattered shreds

  • FAEN

    Conjob-what about 97% of climate scientists who agree that climate change is here and we need to deal with it.

  • Jefe5084

    YOu know,Smelly Anne, scientists long ago warned of the dangers of lead-based skin whiteners. So Elizabethan. Just not good for you. But the damage is done. Science rocks! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/90f9705dd9896c5879b8252abf353a9e39c6ebaba546d6a0a3e48ab2048f588a.jpg

    This from an amateur human.

    • Todd20036

      But a professional V-alien

  • Dutchlander

    F*ck you, CNN, for keeping inviting these subhuman cretins on your air waves.

    • Nax

      CNN doesn’t care. If they cared, they wouldn’t have Kellyanne Conway on, or anyone from the administration, who only go on the amplify the lies. This is no more real or meaningful than Desperate Housewives.

      • Gene Perry

        Yes, CNN cares. They invite KellyAnne on just to show the on-going stupidity of the T____ administration.

        • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

          Whatever helps you sleep at night.

  • Karl Dubhe

    Climate change made that storm 30% worse, according to M Mann.

    But Kellyanne wants to ignore that reality, as she ignores so many other realities.

    I’ve never hoped for an afterlife as much as I have since Jan 20, 2017. So many people need to hit so few people that time itself is going to require an afterlife to accommodate everyone.

  • Wesinoregon

    She’s just using the victims to hide her ignorance behind.

  • DesertSun59

    Propaganda Barbie speaks only when a string is pulled from her rear.

    • Mikey

      so her mommy didn’t show her how to use that Tampax?

  • bambinoitaliano

    Speaking of amateur. How is that for the need of a bullshitter continuing spinning lies for an amateur president with zero understanding of any policies let alone the capability to read basic scientific information.

  • barrixines

    I am not sure which side of this dog and pony show is more reprehensible. At least Smellyanne vaguely seems to revel in being a whore.

    • Priya Lynn

      Kellyanne should wish to have the honour and decency of a whore.

  • Michael R
  • Jonathan Smith

    Why does ANYONE get this……creature on the TV? she has nothing but lies, and “Alternate Facts”
    If you are NOT going to call her a lying bitch, to her face, WHY BOTHER?

    “Professional helper” aka “professional enabler.”

    Waste 19 minutes of my life to watch a whore lie? No thank you.

    • John Ruff

      Yeah, I stopped listening to any of the Nazi spokespeople

      • pete

        reading this summary of the interview was more than enough for me.

        • John Ruff

          I got diarrhea just thinking of that shrill witch’s voice

    • Ernest Endevor

      I get enough of that at home.

  • Joe in PA

    professional helper…

    Bwahahahahaha.

  • Rex

    Check out KellyAnne’s makeup – she’s an amateur cosmetologist.

  • Treant

    So we can’t speak about climate change when a problem is happening because it isn’t Done. We can’t speak about it before because it doesn’t matter. And we can’t speak about it after because, once again, it no longer matters.

    Got it. It’s the same manipulation a bullying supervisor uses to avoid addressing any issues you might have that would actually solve the problem.

    • FAEN

      ^This^

    • olandp

      Just like gun control.

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      Big oil saw what we mere mortals accomplished with regards to big tobaco.
      So big oil has successfully stopped govr talk of climate change.
      Doesnt mean the patient isnt dying. We just arent doing anything about it

  • John Ruff

    Deflect deflect deflect

  • DaveMiller135

    Ad Hominem, at least in part because I don’t give an f about climate change deniers:

    I am glad that, in addition to finally tipping her lighting crew, Grandma has availed herself of the services of a professional makeup artist, and stopped depending on her own work as an amateur cosmetologist.

    • Michael White

      Ad Hominem is all they can do. The cons have not had a position to actually help the American People since before the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

    • Ernest Endevor

      Really. Plus she’s gotten some sleep and had a sandblasting done on the visage. And it’s so cute she dies her hair the same shade of Lady Clairol as Trump. I’m waiting for them to bring out ‘White House’ as a new color.

      • TrollopeReader

        “White House” now in a new, improved Orange Tint. (and a free bags of Cheetos with a purchase of 18 oz or more!)

  • Mike in Texas

    Queen of Trolls sez what?

  • Henry Auvil

    Why does CNN keep bringing this creature on?

    • jmax

      And it’s always the same result –
      Television “Journalist”: “Question question question?”
      Kellyanne Conjob: “Talking point talking point talking point talking poi…”
      TJ: “Why you no answer question?”
      KC: “I already did.”

    • Natty Enquirer

      People watch. Joe posts. Money is made.

  • Gigi

    How does she counsel the president when she spends most of her time dodging and deflecting questions on news shows?

    • Ken M

      She claims to be a “professional helper.” She’s either good at multitasking, or ….use your imagination. : )

      • TrollopeReader

        ewww! unsee!! πŸ™‚

    • TrollopeReader

      I think it’s kinda odd that only 7 months after she arrived in the West Wing, they’ve had to have a total re-do, HVAC, flooring and furniture …

  • bambinoitaliano

    Notice how forceful she uses the term President and Vice President instead of using the twiddle dee and tweedle dum’s name. Knowing full well that their names have zero currency as the authority figures in the public. It’s like a Catholic priest forcing the children to take his dick in their mouth because he is a representation of the all mighty god.

  • jvc in NYC

    Seems to me Chris Cuomo enjoys having her on so they can throw the barbs back and forth at each other. Every time she’s on their interactions turn to theatrics.

    • bambinoitaliano

      and ratings…

  • Todd20036

    What gets me is she gains nothing by denying climate change played a part except she is sucking up to Twitler.

  • Ken M

    I really wish they would invite Trump himself onto some of these various new shows. It would fun watching him tear himself apart and not even realize he was doing it.

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      The NYT would say something like “He realizes now that he has to start acting presidential” and applaud him for not squirting mustard on his tie and eating it on camera.

      • Michael White

        What has happened to the NY Times?

  • Barry William Teske

    Says the Professional Fascist…

    • Meanwhile, Gloria Steinem is 83 and still looking good. Which future do you want, Tami? (Oops, it’s Tomi. Like it matters.)

  • Lesley

    No, whoever did your hair and makeup is the amateur, honey.

  • Natty Enquirer

    “Professional helper.” Sounds sort of like a prostitute.

  • Duh-David

    L’esprit d’escalier — Chris here’s your prep for next time you want to respond to Climate Change deniers:

    “We had to invade Iraq because there was at least a tiny chance Saddam Hussein had those Weapons of Mass Destruction. But we shouldn’t act on Climate Change because, you know, only 97% of scientists agree man is causing it.”

    “Question: If a hundred doctors examined you and said your appendix has to come out or you’re going to die, do you act on what they say? Or do you decide, ‘Well, opinion seems to be pretty evenly divided so I’m going to put surgery off for a while’?”

    “And when is reduction of toxic emissions into the air ever a bad thing?”

    “Answer, that KAC.”

  • 1amgroot

    “I will PLAY professional helper” – Conway.

    Now she just openly admits to being a fraud?

    • AmeriCanadian

      First truthful thing ever to come out of her…whatever.

  • Jack

    PLEASE don’t give her air time.

    If only the media would give us a day without Trump.

  • Ken M

    Professional helper? I wonder if she taught Trump his “Vlad skills.”
    “No Mr President…inhale..inhale..inhale.”

    Not going to watch this prostitute for the Mercers say anything.

  • HZ81

    ‘Professional helper’ isn’t a job, asswipe.

  • Okay, so Chris isn’t a climatologist. Instead of you as a guest, he should have actual climatologists on every day for a week and let them explain global warming and it’s affect on our climate.

  • LatrinaDiBucca

    She ain’t a profesional NUTHIN’. Maybe a professional FOOL.

    She’s a liar, and an enabler, for an illegitimately installed FAKE office holder.

    She and everyone who aids and abets him should be tried for treason, and punished accordingly. I would feel privileged to carry out the punishment.

    • charemor

      Gotta get my glasses changed. I thought you wrote “fried for treason”.

  • pete

    dearie, part of really helping is learning from this event and coping with future disasters. do you want to do this again–more frequently and with even more devastation?

  • Friday

    Of course this climate denialism only means you’ve been ignoring the observations of warmer Gulf temperatures and all the warnings about just this sort of thing happening *again.* Frankly, it’s about not believing the *warnings,* and ignoring and silencing even the *observations* you Republicans didn’t like, Kellyanne.

    • Tor

      But god is real.

  • JWC

    Can’t be bothered with another episode od “Arguemennts with Kelly Ann” Its gone from confrontational, to funny to boring predicitable

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    The moment she pulled that stunt, Cuomo should have said something along the lines of:

    “Well thank you Kellyanne, for once again demonstration that Hurricanes aren’t the only things that blow crap all over the place. That’s all we have time for……..and now following up on….”

    That’s what should have happened, but it never will, because journalism in the U.S. is pretty much D.O.A.

  • Daveed_WOW

    Sigh. The solution to this problem is obvious. Quit putting Trump spokespeople on television. Rachel Maddow never does that. Why should she? She has facts and investigative reporting.

  • Amanda B. Rekendwith

    …I will play professional helper to those in need…
    No one needs help more than Trump, so did KellyAnne actually just tell the truth?
    What is the world coming to???

    • Tor

      But I play one on TV.

  • EdmondWherever

    He works with professional climatologists. He can probably reach out at arm’s length from where he’s sitting and grab someone who has the facts.

    • Tor

      Silly man. FACTS don’t matter.

  • Tor

    What about those god forbid Louisianans?

  • JCF
  • 5moreminutes*imtired

    How is her inane babbling in any way helpful to the people? I’m confused.

  • It’s reached the point where I have no sympathy with anyone who interviews her. Kellyanne is an amoral, supernatural entity, a force of nature, a patron saint of lies – any media entity who gives her airtime deserves to be humiliated and excoriated. They’re wasting everyone’s time and sanity because they know she brings ratings.
