Donald Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway continued her war with CNN on Wednesday as she sparred with anchor Brianna Keilar over the news channel's coverage of her candidate.
Keilar, guest hosting "The Situation Room," asked Conway about accusations by a former Miss Teen USA contestant that Trump walked in on contestants when some of them were topless or naked when he owned the pageant.
Conway said she had no way of knowing what happened at the 2001 pageant and is working on Trump's current campaign.
Keilar also pressed Conway on Republican Trump's charges in a speech earlier in the day that Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton should be jailed.
Conway said the comment was a small portion of a much longer speech and accused CNN of selectively covering less important aspects of Trump's addresss.
Keilar said Trump has only himself to blame by making inflammatory statements.
"He is upstaging himself," Keilar said.
"No," Conway shot back. "You are picking what you want to choose from 45 minutes worth." She said CNN reporters had just noted other subjects Trump discussed.
"Kellyanne, you know if you give a speech as a political candidate and you want someone to focus on something, you don't throw out something completely, you know, outrageous or inflammatory to take away from it," Keilar said. "That's not the media's fault. That is the candidate's problem."
"Nope," Conway insisted. "You're deciding what you think is important from that speech, and then you're conveying it to the world as being important from that speech."
Conway had a similar exchange with Anderson Cooper on Tuesday night.
"Anderson, I guess the question I have is why can't CNN cover Obamacare, and ISIS, and radical Islamic terrorism?" she asked on "Anderson Cooper 360."
"We do, all the time," Cooper responded.
"No you don't," Conway said. "Respectfully, you don't."
"You guys should know we do because you watch CNN all day long," Cooper shot back.
