Conway: Hillary Could Have 'Totally Put Us Away'

(CNBC)

Hillary Clinton's campaign has made a mistake by putting her into "hiding," as her campaign could have taken the past two weeks to "totally put us away," Donald Trump's new campaign manager said Monday morning.

"Scarcity benefits Hillary Clinton," Kellyanne Conway told CNBC's "Squawk Box" program. "If you don't see her, you forget she's running. And you think the entire election is a referendum on Donald Trump."

Meanwhile, the past two weeks have been pivotal ones in the Trump campaign, and Conway said Clinton's camp has made a "grievous error" by not having her out on the campaign trail.

"We'll look back at these two weeks, and say, 'Why in the world didn't Hillary Clinton's campaign totally put us away?'" Conway said. "I think they made a grievous error by not having her go over to the Middle East and meet with the troops or make major policy speeches."

The next two weeks will also be vital, said Conway, as "we're going to be talking about the polls tightening."

Most of the nation's polls put Clinton ahead in the race, but that just "lights a fire under us," Coway continued, and she wants to know why the press is not pushing Clinton for not holding a press conference in more than 260 days.

"Why is the press OK with that?" she said. "And they truly are. Two hundred and sixty days, you could have had a baby by then."

Conway a GOP pollster, was promoted last week to campaign manager, while Breitbart News co-founder Stephen Bannon was brought in as campaign CEO. A few days later, campaign chairman Paul Manafort resigned.

Meanwhile, Conway said Trump's campaign has rebooted and is now about the substance [and] about the issues.

"Those of us who know him see consistently [a] guy who is compassionate, who can be humble . . . who enjoys himself on the trail," Conway said.

However, shortly after she concluded her interview, Trump made news for lashing out at MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on Twitter, taking particular aim at Brzezinski, and calling her "neurotic" and Scarborough's "long-time girlfriend." 

Scarborough and others hit back at Trump for the tweets, including The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg:

Syndicated columnist Ben Shapiro also took aim at Trump for the tweets:
