Conway denies that she was suspended from appearing on television.
Byers added in a tweet that Conway’s hiatus was temporary.
It has been more than a week since Conway appeared on television – an eternity, by her standard. The White House continued to trot her out after she coined the phrase “alternative facts,” cited a “Bowling Green massacre” that never happened and promoted Ivanka Trump’s products on Fox News, but apparently Trump could not abide statements that undermined the administration’s official message.
Last Monday, she said on MSNBC that then-national security adviser Michael Flynn “does enjoy the full confidence of the president.” Less than an hour later, White House press secretary Sean Spicer contradicted her when he said that Trump was “evaluating the situation.” Flynn resigned as national security adviser that night.
The next day, Conway appeared on multiple morning shows and said it was Flynn’s decision to step down. But Spicer again contradicted her when he said in his daily press briefing that Trump “asked for and received [Flynn’s] resignation.”
