Bloomberg’s entry, Conway said on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” was the former mayor’s way of saying “I don’t think any of you can beat Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpJane Fonda says she feels ‘sad’ for Trump Bloomberg vows not to take campaign donations, presidential salary Biden reveals four women he could pick as his running mate MORE,” but decried his first campaign ad, saying it was “all unicorns and rainbows” and comparing it to Obama’s campaign, adding “as we sit here today over 10 million have no health insurance of any kind.”

Conway demurred when asked by CBS’ Margaret Brennan why Trump had continued to promote conspiracy theories about Ukraine being responsible for the hack of the Democratic National Committee’s server, instead saying that Trump’s attitude on his July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was that after Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerTrump says he’ll release financial records before election, knocks Dems’ efforts House impeachment hearings: The witch hunt continues Speier says impeachment inquiry shows ‘very strong case of bribery’ by Trump MORE‘s investigation, “the president looks at it as, it’s his turn, he wants to get to the bottom of what happened in 2016.”
