GQ magazine special correspondent Keith Olbermann says top Donald Trump aide Kellyanne Conway should leave the U.S. for defending the president-elect’s Twitter habits.

{mosads}The Twitter comment comes after Conway asked CNN anchor Chris Cuomo why he cared about Trump’s tweeting.

“Why take it up?” Cuomo asked Conway on Monday morning while discussing Trump’s Twitter account. “Why take up ‘SNL’? No president does that. Why waste time? Why distract?”

“Why do you care?” Conway retorted during the heated interview on CNN’s “New Day.”

Trump criticized “Saturday Night Live” on Twitter this weekend, accusing the show of bias. 

Conway defended Trump’s Twitter use and said Cuomo was assigning to the situation “malice” and “wrongdoing” that does not exist.

“Who’s to say he can’t do that?” she said of Trump. “Make a comment — spend five minutes sending a tweet, making a comment. This network and other people will always be focused on divisions. How about accepting the election results, Chris, and letting him form a government?

“I think we should all learn from the election that this doesn’t fly with the voters. He is a leader and takes the counsel of many people, and that’s exactly what he’s doing.”

Cuomo responded that leaders “should also have thick skin,” prompting Conway to argue the social media platform helps Trump reach his “25 million followers” without the media.

“It’s a great way for him to take his message directly to the people. Sometimes he’s trying to cut through the nonsense of people telling Americans what’s important to them.”

On Sunday morning, Trump tweeted criticisms of “Saturday Night Live,” calling the sketch comedy series a “totally one sided, biased show” with “nothing funny at all.”

The billionaire also repeatedly called on the cast of the Broadway musical “Hamilton” to apologize for comments targeting Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

Pence, who is also governor of Indiana, received a lecture from the play’s cast during a performance he attended in New York City late Friday.
