Kellyanne Conway Ignores The Facts As Fox News Host Grills Her For Spreading ‘Misinformation’

Fox News host Sandra Smith did not let Kellyanne Conway lie on live television on Thursday. During a discussion on the spread of COVID-19 among children, Smith asked Conway why Donald Trump was spreading “misinformation” and saying that children are “virtually immune” to the virus.

The Fox News host noted that the Centers for Disease Control has determined that 7.4% of coronavirus cases are people under the age of 18.

“Kids are getting this disease,” Smith pointed out.

Conway tried to defend the president’s claim by saying “only one” child has died in the country after becoming infected with COVID-19.

When the White House adviser tried to change the subject, Smith interrupted.

“But I want to stick to children though,” Smith said. “The debate right now is over the spread of misinformation by the president about children being nearly immune. Having under 18 kids get this disease 7.4% of the time is not ‘nearly immune.’”

Smith then reminded Conway of the coronavirus outbreak in Mississippi after schools opened back up.

“So is it helpful for the president to tell parents that children are nearly immune from this?” Smith asked. “And then have it factually spreading child to child in places like Mississippi where they’ve opened the doors to the schools?”

“The lockdown and the shutdown may work for Joe Biden in Delaware but it doesn’t work for the rest of the country,” Conway complained. “It doesn’t work for many of our school children. We can’t create a pandemic within a pandemic.”

Smith interrupted again: “That’s another conversation. The point is, the president in that interview on Fox & Friends yesterday morning said, ‘It’s going to go away like things go away.’ And that is something many people are taking issue with.”

Conway then tried to brush off Smith’s comments by claiming that social media platforms are just trying to silence the president and conservatives.

“When you have somebody that worked for Kamala Harris come out and announce that you’re banning the president’s tweet, you’re taking it down, that itself shows a political motivation,” Conway claimed. “And I think what many of these tech companies are doing now to the president, to conservatives, the shadow banning, the censoring, the selective engagement is election interference.”
