She said it "was meant to harass and embarrass" her.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway clashed Sunday with CNN's Dana Bash when she was asked about her husband's tweets that criticize President Trump.

Conway said yesterday after the interview she's "long admired" Bash, which she said "makes this harder to comprehend".

"It's fascinating to me that CNN would go there", she said. You want to talk about other people's spouses or others just simply because they work in the White House or at CNN. "I'm really surprised, but very, in some ways, relieved and gratified to see that".

"It's fascinating that CNN would go there but very good for the whole world to have just witnessed that it is now fair game what people's... how people's spouses and significant others may differ with them".

Conway hit back at everything in sight.

After Bash commented that the question was supposed to be lighthearted and added it was hard for two adults who have differences of opinion, Conway interrupted: "Which two adults?"

" I would ask you that if you were a male and your partner ... a thousand percent I would", Bash reacted.

"By definition, spouses have a difference of opinion when one is, I don't know, draining the joint bank account to support things that maybe the other disagrees with", Conway said.
