The Democrats have had a fine start to their National Convention. While Barack Obama, Kamala Harris and Joe Biden have yet to speak, speeches from Michelle Obama and Jill Biden have been well received. Even former Bush-adviser Karl Rove has been complimentary of the event.
Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox News today to try and shut down some of the Democrats current momentum. When she tried to spread misinformation about Joe Biden’s COVID-19 plan, though, she was shut down by Sandra Smith.
Conway appeared on America’s Newsroom to talk about the event. She told Smith:
“It is so important the president is providing information to the public, not confrontation with the press in these brief briefings so he can also take the tough questions from the press. One last thing I didn’t hear Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, John Kerry, or anybody talk about this virus in a meaningful solutions-based way for months while we were here around the clock. If they have idea Sandra, they shouldn’t be sitting on it until November 4th.”
The host, however, quickly moved to shut down the Trump adviser’s claims. She responded, “Joe Biden’s got a plan. It’s on his campaign website. You can read through it.”
