During an interview at the Newseum in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, Trump aide Kellyanne Conway was asked how personally she took negative media coverage of her.
Conway asked what columnist Michael Wolff meant. His answer didn't mince words.
"I'm gonna tell you, when they say, 'Democracy dies in darkness,' you're the darkness," Wolff said, referencing the Washington Post motto.

The comment drew laughs from the audience. Conway responded, "Just because someone says something doesn't make it true."
The "Democracy dies in darkness" motto is far older than Conway's time in the limelight. It became the Post's official slogan in February, but reporter Bob Woodward was fond of the phrase and used it frequently, The Hill reported.
