For over a year, Kellyanne Conway has been one of the prominent voices in defending Donald Trump against criticism from the majority of the mainstream media. During her latest clash with the press, Conway doubled down on her defense of the president.

It was just last summer when Donald Trump picked up serious steam in his campaign for president as his poll numbers jumped ahead of his 16 opponents in the Republican primary. Despite this, the former host of "The Apprentice" was forced to make a decision when then campaign manager Paul Manafort was outed for having financial ties to Russia.

With Manafort gone, Trump brought on board veteran Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway to take the reigns. In the months that followed, Conway would became a national name in American politics, mostly due to her constant defense of Trump, regardless of what evidence was put in front of her. Following Trump's election win over Hillary Clinton, Conway was brought into the administration and was named to the role of "presidential counsel." However, the last year hasn't been too kind to Conway as she's found herself in controversial situations on more than one occasion. Earlier this year, Conway attempted to defend the president's proposed "Muslim ban" by citing the nonexistent "Bowling Green Massacre," while also excusing Trump's falsehoods by labeling them "alternative facts." The drama surrounding Conway and the media continued during a November 5 segment on CNN.

Joining CNN's Brian Stelter on Sunday morning, Kellyanne Conway went head-to-head with the host in a heated argument over the network's coverage of the White House. Stelter hit Conway over Donald Trump's lack of credibility, but the presidential counsel was not having any of it.

“I guess you just want everybody to be like Fox News, state-run media," Stelter said. "That’s not true," Conway replied, before adding, "Stop being so jealous of Fox News, Brian, and their ratings."

"Just own it," Kellyanne Conway went on to say.

"You are a very prominent person there. Just say 'we're doing better in the ratings because we are one of the more anti-Trump than down the line outlets," she added. "We're not anti-Trump, Kellyanne. We're pro-truth," Brian Stelter fired back. In response, Conway accused CNN of loading their panels with critics of the president, before going off on a tangent about Benghazi and Obamacare.

While Kellyanne Conway and the rest of the White House continue to trade jabs with cable news outlets, Donald Trump is currently at the start of his 12-day trip to Asia. With the commander in chief now in Japan, many are crossing their fingers that Trump's trip goes well and no damage takes place while he's out of the country and speaking to other world leaders.
