White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said that a CNN producer caught on tape disparaging President Trump was “just joining in on the fun," saying that the media culture is too critical of President Trump. 

Conway's remarks came after a CNN producer was caught on tape calling Trump "crazy" and voters "stupid" in a video released by conservative undercover activist James O'Keefe.

Conway said cable news is full of people attacking the Trump administration.

“It is symptomatic of a culture whether it’s the screaming lower third (of the TV screen) or the constant merciless attacks on the president and his senior staff," she said in an interview with The Daily Caller

"In many ways he was just joining in on the fun,” Conway said.
