'I'll Just Walk Away!' Kellyanne Conway Threatens to Walk Off Set During Heated Exchange with CNN's Chris Cuomo

It was a complete disaster.

For some reason, no matter how many times CNN invites her on air for entirely futile debates, the network keeps bringing Kellyanne Conway back.

Thursday night on "Cuomo Prime Time" was yet another example of her complete inability to hold a serious conversation or debate any substantive issues. Discussing the recently roiled Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh with host Chris Cuomo, Conway moved from talking point to talking point, peppering in needless attacks against Cuomo and CNN the entire time. And even as she constantly interrupted Cuomo and spouted falsehoods, she acted indignant when he cut her off.

"These are our best efforts," she said, referring to the GOP's work to vet the claims of sexual assault against Kavanaugh.

"Not having the FBI [investigate] is the best effort?" said Cuomo.

Conway shot back: "You want to lay the blame at somone's feet? Look no further than your Democratic friends, starting with Sen. Feinstein. Even the Democrats are angry with her. If Dr. Ford is upset with anyone—"

"What does that have to do with the truth of the matter?" Cuomo interjected.

"Don't interrupt me Christopher!" she shouted. "Hey Chris, Chris! Chris, you just think you can talk over me? I'll just walk away!"

"You're always welcome to come on, but I have to stop you and check what you put out there," replied Cuomo. 

"I didn't say — nothing came out of my mouth yet!" 

Cuomo rolled his eyes: "A lot of noise coming for nothing coming out of your mouth."

"Ok! I can leave, I'll just leave, and we'll watch him get confirmed next week," said Conway.
