White House adviser Kellyanne Conway mocked CNN anchor Chris Cuomo as an “amateur climatologist” after he mentioned climate change during a discussion about Hurricane Matthew.
In an interview Wednesday, Cuomo asked about addressing climate change after the historic storm.
“Chris we’re trying to help the people whose lives are literally underwater and you want to have a conversation about climate change,” Conway said.
“I mean, that is, I’m not going to engage in that right now because I work for a president and a vice president and a country that is very focused on helping the millions of affected Texans, and, God forbid, Louisianans if it ends up.”
Cuomo knocked Conway for “berating me for asking the question” and again asked if the administration is willing to have a conversation about climate change.
“You’re going to play climatologist tonight?” Conway asked. “Here’s the deal, you play amateur climatologist tonight and I will play professional helper to those in need, and continue in my job here, as counselor to the president, to help listen to the Cabinet members, the president, the vice president…and others, General Kelly, who could not be a better chief of staff equipped for a matter like Harvey since he was at DHS and is accustomed to large-scale operations as such.”
