The Washington Post reports:
Kellyanne Conway doesn’t want reporters to say that she threatened the Washington Examiner reporter whom she threatened. “So, listen, if you’re going to cover my personal life, if you’re going to cover my personal life, then we’re welcome to do the same around here,” said Conway in a phone call recorded by the Washington Examiner’s Caitlin Yilek.
Whereas Trump bullies people with bluster and froth, Conway does so with precision and calm. In her discussion with reporters Friday, she said, “I still didn’t get an answer from her, which was the essential question, which was: Why do you call yourself a breaking news reporter if you’re not writing breaking news and you’re not even being a reporter?” Like her boss, she can’t let go.
And when asked about what the Examiner regards as a threat to investigate reporters’ personal lives, Conway goes all-in on Trumpian gaslighting and bravado: “I never threatened anyone. Don’t use those words … No, no, no … If I threaten somebody, you’ll know it. If I threaten someone, you’ll know it.”
