Seth Meyers on Kellyanne Conway Interview
With Kellyanne Conway, the thing I realized from watching the news was that here was somebody who obviously had all these interview chess moves that were at a much higher level than I could operate on. But the huge advantage I have over people in the news is a live audience. It’s so great, because they serve as an audible bullsh0t detector. There was a moment where I said to Kellyanne, ‘That’s a pivot.’ I feel like if [CNN’s] Jake Tapper said that, she’d say, ‘No, it’s not,’ and explain why it wasn’t a pivot. But when I said, ‘That’s a pivot,’ the audience laughed, and it took away her ability to lie. She would not just be saying that I was wrong but 200 other people were wrong.
