White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway accused media of being obsessed with the tweets of U.S. President Donald trump. She said that instead of reporting what Trump does as president, media only covers his tweets, particularly his response to the London terror attack.

However, NBC “Today” show co-host Craig Melvin told Conway, who was the guest on Monday, that tweeting is Trump’s preferred way of communicating with Americans. While Conway disagreed, Melvin pointed out that the president has not given an interview in three weeks, the New York Daily News reported.

Out-of-context remarks

Following the London terror attack, Trump tweeted that even if there were at least seven dead and 48 wounded in the attack, he criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan for saying there is no reason to be alarmed. Khan wanted London residents not to be alarmed if they see more police in the streets.

Conway denied Trump’s Tweet was a political attack on the first Muslim mayor of the British capital city. She accused media of making a one-sided report on the issue. She stressed that the president is not the perpetrator in the aftermath of the London terrorist attack on Saturday and Trump does not deserve “some blameworthiness,” The Washington Post reported.

The White House adviser’s reply was in response to a question from Savannah Guthrie, host of the show, who asked if Trump owed Khan an apology for taking the mayor’s words out of content.

The newspaper described Conway’s reaction as a highly calculated persecution complex to make it appear that media is so outrageous.

It noted that blaming journalists is one of the leading media strategies of the White House under Trump who calls news that is critical of him as fake. The goal of that strategy is to peddle the idea that media men as consumed by hate for the president that they are making reckless accusations against the billionaire.

The husband speaks

However, Conway’s credibility was further eroded when George Conway, her husband, also criticized the same day Trump’s tweeting habits. He pointed out that the president was placing at risk the legal standing of his court battle to keep Muslim immigrants out of the U.S. by calling his proposal a travel ban, The New York Daily News reported.

George, who removed his name for a top job in the Department of Justice under the Trump administration, noted that the president’s tweets might make some people feel better. However, he said it would not help the Office of the Solicitor General to get five votes in the Supreme Court which is what really matters more than the short-term emotional gratification Trump gets from his tweets.
