Kellyanne Conway: 'Buoyant' Trump Took His 'Case Directly to the People'

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said President Donald Trump was "inspired" to "cut out the middle man and take his case directly to the people" in his "masterful," if scathing, news conference this week that had her feeling as if she was "witnessing history."

"Trump was buoyant afterwards because he knew that he had accomplished his goals, which was to take his case directly to the people – and frankly to cut through not just the noise, but the silence," Conway told Newsmax TV's "The Howie Carr Show" on Friday.

"There's so much silence and incomplete coverage of all the good that he's done so far. For ex-ample, this man has put forth 20-24 executive actions in the last four weeks and only one, the travel pause, gets covered."

"The whole point of the press conference [Thursday] was the president to go out and cut out the middle man, Howie, and take his case directly to the people," Conway told Carr. "There's no better communicator, no more brilliant connector, natural connector with people – whether he's sending out a tweet that everybody can see at the same time... democratization of information – everybody sees at the same time what the president of the United States just said.

"And it's masterful; it's very much him."

Trump railed more Friday evening against "fake news" media as the "enemy of the American people" and not him, he wrote in Twitter rant.  

 

 

"People feel like they're going to make their careers, get a Pulitzer Prize out of defying this guy," Conway told Carr. "What they don't realize is they can't abandon their basic responsibilities, which is to go after the story, to find some light not always the heat.

"It's always the division and subtraction, not multiplication and addition."

Amid divisive media coverage, unsubstantiated reports, and "silence" of all the hard work Trump's administration has put forth to "Make America Great Again," Conway added the president has not gotten discouraged by negative coverage.

"President Trump is certainly not easily bothered or rattled or anything like that," she told Carr. "He is unbelievably confident, and resolute, and decisive.... That presidential press conference: pretty remarkable.

"I felt like I was in the front row witnessing history."

Conway, projecting there will be two full Trump presidential terms of this, said "the media and the White House are going to have joint custody of this country for the next eight years. We ought to find out a way to do it civilly and to get it collaboratively."
