Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway posted a poll on Twitter Wednesday morning asking “who has more credibility” between the New York Times and President Donald Trump.
Conway posted the Twitter poll in a response to a Trump tweet that called The New York Times “the true enemy of the people.”
Trump is calling the New York Times bombshell report that said he asked former Acting AG Matthew Whitaker to put his top ally Geoffrey Berman in charge of the Michael Cohen investigation.
Berman is the top United States attorney for the Southern District of New York and a Trump ally that recused himself from the Russia probe. Trump denied the report on Tuesday but he still lashed out on Twitter this morning.
Trump claims that “writers don’t even call asking for verification,” and they are “totally out of control.”
NY Times reporter Maggie Haberman, that helped write the Whitaker report, responded to Trump’s claim on CNN this morning saying “that’s a lie,” and she doesn’t” know if he knows it’s a lie or whether he is telling himself ‘this is true,’ whether his staff doesn’t tell him we are reaching out, but I find it hard to believe that his staff didn’t brief him once again that this kind of a report was coming.”
Haberman said she and her colleagues reached out to Trump on Friday and never got a response.
“I sent several e-mails that went unanswered until yesterday. We went through a detailed list of what we were planning on reporting. They chose not to engage, and afterward, the president acts surprised.”
According to the Washington Post, President Trump has made 8,158 false or misleading claims in his first two years. Do you think he has more credibility than the New York Times?
