CNN: ‘We Passed’ On Having Kellyanne Conway On Sunday Show

February 6, 2017 1:58 p.m.

CNN said that it “passed” on having top Donald Trump aide Kellyanne Conway appear on the network’s “State of the Union” program on Sunday.

Conway denied in a tweet posted Monday that she was passed over for the show as a result of issues with her “credibility.”

“False,” Conway tweeted, linking to a Mediaite story citing reporting by the New York Times. “I could do no live Sunday shows this week BC of family. Plus, I was invited onto CNN today & tomorrow.”

CNN refuted her claim, saying that Conway “was offered to SOTU on Sunday by the White House” but the network turned down the offer.

“We passed,” the CNN communications team tweeted. “Those are the facts.”

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski suggested that “Morning Joe” had done the same.

“You are not the first,” she tweeted.
