Alex Conant: ‘The Easiest Way for a Republican Member of Congress To Get on TV’ Is to Attack Trump

‘They want to talk about conflict, they want to talk about fighting, they want to talk about Republicans attacking Republicans, Democrats attacking Democrats’

EXCERPT:

CONANT: "Look, the media loves bipartisanship. You know, whenever there’s a big bipartisan gathering on the Hill, the media applauds it. But that’s not really what they want to cover. That’s not really what they want to talk about. They want to talk about conflict, they want to talk about fighting, they want to talk about Republicans attacking Republicans, Democrats attacking Democrats. I can tell you, I’ve worked for a lot of Republican members of Congress. The easiest way for a Republican member of Congress to get on TV is to go attack a Republican — is to go attack Republican leadership or the president, President Trump."
