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.
