Conway: ‘The Entire Election Was a Rejection of Elites in the Establishment’

‘What my colleague Steve Bannon is saying there is that Donald Trump understood America the way many did not including those who are charged with informing America’

EXCERPT:

CONWAY: "So what my colleague Steve Bannon is saying there is that Donald Trump understood America the way many did not, including those who are charged with informing America and educating America about the news, not their opinion. There is an awful lot of opining going on by individuals who call themselves reporters. And you are supposed to talk about the news, not use a snarky comment here and eye roll there and adjective that is insulting or negative toward the president. That’s really not the job. The job is to certainly probe and ask the tough questions. But it’s beyond that for this man. But, look, it also only matters a little bit. Why? Because the entire election was a rejection of elites in the establishment. That's many in the donor class, many in the two parties, frankly. It's certainly in the consulting class which I always say is rife with staff infection. They have really got nowhere to go now because Donald Trump proved he can do this with a thinner staff and far less money than typical candidates including Hillary Clinton. And it certainly is a rejection of some in the media who just never really gave him a fair shake. If you look at some of these Twitter feeds that are a hot mess, they would never pass editorial muster in a newspaper or a television station."
