Conway calls CNN's Acosta a 'smartass' during immigration exchange
By Jordan Fabian - 01/08/19 02:36 PM EST

White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway called CNN's Jim Acosta a “smartass” during a heated exchange over immigration.
 
Acosta asked Conway on the North Lawn driveway whether she could “promise the president will tell the truth tonight” during a primetime address on his demands for a border wall.
 
“Yes, Jim. And will you promise that you will?“ Conway asked in response.
 
“I will, absolutely. I’m not the one with the alternative-facts problem like you do,” Acosta replied, referencing a quote from Conway from 2017.
 
When Acosta challenged Conway again about whether Trump's speech could pass a fact check, the White House aide replied, “let me go back to your case because you’re such a smartass most of the time and I know you want this to go viral.”

It was so nice not having to hear or see that dickhead in the news for as long as we did.

That seems about right.
I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.
