Over the last two months, Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway has been kept off of most cable news outlets, being relegated to the conservative-friendly Fox News. After making her long-awaited return to CNN, it's become apparent why she was removed in the first place.

Not long after Donald Trump locked up the GOP nomination at the Republican National Convention last summer, he was forced to make a major change as then campaign manager Paul Manafort was exposed for having financial ties back to Russia.

With the scandal involving Russia heating up, Manafort was forced to resign, leading to Trump tapping veteran pollster Kellyanne Conway to move in as the new campaign manager. Since then, Conway has been one of the leading voices for the campaign, and now in the White House as counsel to the president. However, Conway has committed multiple blunders during high-profiled interviews, including her now infamous use of the term "alternative facts," in addition to citing the non-existent "Bowling Green Massacre" to defend Trump's controversial "Muslim ban" executive order.

Conway has remained out of the spotlight since then, but returned to CNN on Tuesday night for an interview with Anderson Cooper, then again on May 10 with Chris Cuomo to discuss Trump's recent firing of now former FBI Director James Comey.

Joining CNN's "New Day" on Wednesday morning was Kellyanne Conway who got into a heated exchange with co-host Chris Cuomo while trying to defend Donald Trump over his firing of James Comey.

As Conway did her best to explain away the issue over Russia, Cuomo fired back. "I get the talking point on this," Cuomo said. "It's not a talking point. It's a seven month distraction," Conway replied.

"That's what you want it to be, I get that.

What I want is the truth," Chris Cuomo said. "The idea that you should know the fruit of the investigation this many months in is naive and deceptive," he continued. At this point Kellyanne Conway became increasingly frustrated, at one point stating, "you always want to talk about Russia, Russia, Russia!"

Moving forward

Despite Kellyanne Conway doing her best to spin the news in favor of the administration, Donald Trump is catching serious heat over his decision to terminate James Comey as head of the FBI.

Doubling down on Conway's comments, Trump took to Twitter for a series of angry tweets on Wednesday morning, as the pressure mounts on the president to explain his actions.
