On Tuesday, a CNN reporter spoke to a woman and her young daughter about being rescued. Within minutes the woman became upset that the reporter kept asking questions while her daughter was visibly shaken by the experience. The video was put online by the right-wing Daily Caller before Kellyanne Conway used it as a way to hit back at CNN. As seen on her Twitter feed on August 29, Conway revived heavy criticism as a result.

"Watch this clip to end.Shames @CNN to get the mike out of her face, notes her kids are shivering & in need of things other than an interview," Conway tweeted, while attaching the aforementioned video clip. As many in Houston and in the surrounding area struggle to pick up the pieces and move on with their life, Conway's cheat shop at a cable news station didn't go unnoticed by critics of #Donald Trump on social media.

Twitter reacts

Not long after Kellyanne Conway posted her anti-CNN tweet, social media users didn't hold back their thoughts. "Maybe she needs a MAGA hat - 45 is the biggest fraud! CNN just doing their job - interviewing those affected by Harvey..." one Twitter user wrote.

"Good thing the president didn't go to tx and divert much needed resources from the people in desperate need.

#ohwait" a follow-up tweet added. "Leave it to Kellyanne to use Hurricane Harvey as a platform to shame CNN for something FOX news is out there doing, too," another Twitter user posted.

"Maybe you should also point out the work of the many reporters literally helping to save lives," Roland Scahill noted. "Maybe instead of going after CNN yet again, you could just see how devastating and upsetting this is for people. You sink lower & lower," one tweet wrote. The backlash continued as it was made clear that Kellyanne Conway's tweet was not well-received, especially by those who oppose Donald Trump and his administration.
