Kellyanne Conway, senior counselor to the president, took on
Hollywood and criticized what she deemed the “unfortunate”
politicization of entertainment and sports during an interview on

“Fox & Friends” on Monday

The comments came the morning after the
annual Emmy Awards
, which featured a

and a series of jabs at President Donald Trump.

“You’re alienating at least 63 million Americans who supported
this president last time and you’re alienating many more who
want the president to succeed and you’re showing the
world that you’re so easy with an insult about our
leader,” Conway said. “I think that’s really unfortunate,

But Conway approved of Spicer’s appearance at the awards show,
telling the Fox hosts she’s happy her former colleague is capable
of taking the ridicule he often received on NBC’s “Saturday Night

“This is something that a lot of folks in Hollywood sometimes
lack, which is introspection and good humor,”
Conway said

She added that the president is too busy to call up actor
Alec Baldwin to congratulate him on
his Emmy award
for his
impersonation of Trump
