Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump and his former campaign manager, has made a name for herself by defending the White House's policies on television. But the MSNBC show Morning Joe has taken a stand, saying they won't let her on the show because she is no longer "credible."
"We know for a fact she tries to book herself on this show. I won't do it," cohost Mika Brzezinski said Wednesday. "Because I don't believe in fake news or information that is not true, and every time I've ever seen her on television, something's askew, off, or incorrect." Before this, CNN had also passed on airing Conway on the show State of the Union, and Mika tweeted that the show was "not alone."

The hosts also noted that Conway likely doesn't know exactly what's going on with Trump's inner circle. "She's out of the loop, she's in none of the key meetings, she goes out and books herself often," cohost Joe Scarborough said. "I don't even think she's saying something that she knows to be untrue. She's just saying things just to get in front of the TV set and prove her relevance, because behind the scenes she's not in these meetings."
Brzezinski also cited the Office of Government Ethics, which says Conway likely broke federal ethics rules in endorsing Ivanka Trump's products live on the air. "She's not credible anymore," Brzezinski added later. "Kellyanne Conway does not need to text our show, at least as long as I'm on it, because it's not happening here." Conway has yet to publicly respond to Morning Joe's new policy.
