Kellyanne Conway put herself in the hot seat Tuesday morning on both "Today" and "Good Morning America," where she was given the third degree over the resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

On "Today," Matt Lauer kicked off their interview by asking if Conway was completely "out of the loop," as she said just yesterday that Flynn had the "full confidence" of the president.

"No, not at all. Both were true," Conway said. "The president is very loyal. He's a very loyal person and by night's end Mike Flynn had decided to resign. He knew he had become a lightning rod and he made that decision."

Flynn resigned Monday night following reports he mislead VP Mike Pence about conversations he had with the Russian ambassador.

Conway explained the situation further, but Lauer was not having it.

"Kellyanne, that makes no sense," he interrupted. "Last month, the justice department warned the White House that General Flynn had mislead them and, as a result, he was vulnerable to blackmail and, at that moment, he still had the complete trust of the president?"

Conway stuck to her buzzword of the day, "unsustainable," by adding, "In the end, it was misleading the vice president that made the situation unsustainable."

Over on "GMA," George Stephanopoulos also went in on Conway after she requested to be on the show.

"Do you know if the president was told three weeks ago that General Flynn had been compromised, do you know if the president was told that?" he asked. "I do not know that," she said.

When he shot back the same question, this time about Pence, she had the same response.
