Joe Scarborough slams Kellyanne Conway for 'lies' about Flynn


Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC's 'Morning Joe,' slammed White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday, calling her "so out of the loop."

He made the comment during a discussion of former national security adviser Michael Flynn that included a clip of Conway saying, "General Flynn does enjoy the full confidence of the president." That comment was made in the hours prior to Flynn's resignation.

When the clip ended, co-host Mika Brzezinski said, "How many times does she go out and say things that are not true?"

After repeating the phrase "blatantly false," Scarborough turned to panelist Willie Geist and said, "Willie, it happens time and time again....She goes out and lies, and you find out about those lies a couple of hours later."

Scarborough added, "Or if she's not lying, Willie, she is—actually what I've heard she is—so out of the loop. She's in none of the meetings and she just goes out there and starts talking without having the facts."


During his comments, Brzezinski also declared, "I will not interview her. It's giving people dishonesty."

According to a New York Times report, Flynn "resigned on Monday night after it was revealed that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and other top White House officials about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States."

Conway later told NBC's 'Today' show, "I think misleading the vice president really was the key here. That fact is what made the situation unsustainable, actually."
