White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has been scrambling to explain herself ever since she claimed to CNN's Chris Cuomo on Wednesday night that "nobody here talks about" Hillary Clinton. By Thursday morning, President Trump had already proved her wrong:
Disproven and paid for by Democrats “Dossier used to spy on Trump Campaign. Did FBI use Intel tool to influence the Election?” @foxandfriends Did Dems or Clinton also pay Russians? Where are hidden and smashed DNC servers? Where are Crooked Hillary Emails? What a mess!

On Thursday morning, Conway attempted to clarify what she meant when she made her comment on CNN:
So fun to see the predictable heads exploding, but I should've finished that sentence #CuomoPrimeTime @CNN. "Nobody in the White House talks about Hillary Clinton" when noting whose presidential leadership = historic tax cuts & economic boom, reg reform, put ISIS in retreat.

The hosts of New Day weren't buying it. After reading the clarification live, Alisyn Camerota was only able to laugh:
Cuomo also jumped in Thursday morning, tweeting "good thing no one talks about HRC in the White House. Is 'nobody' new POTUS code name?" Conway replied: "When we are forced to think/talk about HRC, it's because you and your colleagues can't let go of an election she/you lost. Sad!" She added on Fox News: "I know people love to talk about how we're so obsessed with Hillary Clinton here. The fact is, we only have to talk about her because people won't let go of an election that she lost miserably."
In other news, Trump has so far tweeted about Clinton five times in the first 11 days of the year. Jeva Lange
