Kellyanne Conway made her rounds through the morning news circus Monday, sparring against multiple hosts in defense of Donald Trump Jr., and sparked lots of Twitter conversation in the process.
President Donald Trump's counselor and PR maverick was a top trend on the social media platform Monday morning after first appearing on "Good Morning America" to go head-to-head with George Stephanopoulos over Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 election, then continued that same conversation on CNN with Chris Cuomo
Stephanopoulos asked Conway why the White House administration held back information that Trump's cabinet was having secret meetings with Russia, and her response was simply, "Everybody is trying to convert wishful thinking into hard evidence."

On CNN, Conway went on the defensive against Cuomo as he tooquestioned Trump Jr.'s intentions. "Aren't you the least bit reluctant, if not embarrassed that you now talk about Russia more than you talk about America?" Conway said.
"You don't care if Russia was trying to get inside your campaign to affect the election?" Cuomo said. "If you want flattery there's another channel that can give you that. We try and keep it straight, we go with both sides and we test power."

Predictably, Trump supporters perceived Conway as the winner of the verbal sparring matches, while critics of the POTUS filled Twitter with jokes at Conway's expense. Here's some of the most amusing reactions TooFab could find.

Instead of pointless interviews with KellyAnne Conway, why not save money by interviewing a parrot. We might actually learn something then.@mms5048
• We didn't meet with Russia.
• We forgot to disclose the meetings with Russia.
• Why are you talking so much about Russia?
