Trump consultant Kellyanne Conway accused CNN's Chris Cuomo of being "jealous" of the ratings of Fox News during an interview in Cuomo's show on Thursday night during a heated exchange about the Trump administration record on a number of issues.
Conway has repeatedly denied Cuomo's claims to admit that Trump has lied about payments to adult movie actress Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. The couple began arguing about the president's track record of opioid crisis reform and employment
"Why does it matter to you that there are now 6.6 million jobs for Americans," Conway said on the Cuomo Prime Time Show. "The president is working on the prison reform, he breaks the opioid crisis."
"He does not break the opioid crisis," interjected Cuomo.
"It's terrible, we both know it is, it is spreading," he said. "I can not let you say things that are not true, that's not what this show is about."
After Conway asked, "Christopher, what are the statistics?" The CNN anchor said, "This is Fox, you go to Fox."
"Sorry, okay, I'm so glad you mentioned it Fox because none of you are able to to survive most of your shows without mentioning them. "
" I almost never mention them, "Cuomo argued.
"It's not good to be so jealous of Fox News reviews," Conway said.
"I'm jealous of the opportunities they have to test the Force," Cuomo shot back. "You just do not take them, I'm jealous of that."
"I'm not in the business of attacking other people in the business," he added.
"You do," Conway said.
During the often intense debate, Cuomo and Conway talked about each other, both struggling to say a word.

At one point, Conway accused Cuomo of "sexist" behavior after he repeatedly talked about her and did not let her finish her sentences.
"He will not even let me speak," she interjected at one point, seeming to address her comment to the crewmembers. "I think it's kind of sexist the way you do this interview."
"Please, please, I treat you as someone who is here to represent the president, man, woman or others."  "No, you will not let me talk," Conway said. "You silence me."
"Nobody can silence you," Cuomo shot back.
