White House counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared on Today with Matt Lauer on Tuesday to talk about the resignation last night of Gen. Mike Flynn as President Trump's national security adviser...except she kind of, sort of avoided answering an important question.
Conway repeatedly dodged Lauer's questions about why Flynn had continued as the national security adviser despite the Justice Department's warning to the White House last month that he had misled officials and was vulnerable to blackmail by the Russians, finally prompting Lauer to tell Conway her response "makes no sense."
