Anderson Cooper of CNN has confronted Donald Trump’s campaign manager on live television asking “Don’t facts matter?”

With the United States Presidential election looming, and millions of American heading to the polls, Cooper questioned Kellyanne Conway about the Trump campaigns management of FBI Director James Comey and the email case involving Trump’s opponent Hillary Clinton.

Referring to FBI director Comey’s statement confirming and clearing Clinton of any illegal activity despite Trump’s week long tyrant stating that the FBI held explosive evidence against her, Cooper asks, “Is it irresponsible if a man who might be president of the United States to speculate about something about which he has no facts?”

Cooper who then responded “If everybody jumped off a bridge it doesn’t mean you should jump off a bridge too?” added “Don’t you think it’s irresponsible? Apparently you don’t. Don’t facts matter?”

Despite Conway’s attempts to direct the conversation to the finances of the Clinton Foundation, Cooper countered, “We know a lot more about the Clinton Foundation than we know about your candidate’s taxes. We haven’t seen anything of your candidate’s taxes. Isn’t it a little hypocritical to be using information that you know about the foundation because they actually have released their financial records, when your candidate hasn’t done that?”

Cooper also used Trump’s technique against him following Conway’s guaranteed that Trump did not receive a $1 million donation from Qatar, with Cooper questioning, “How do we know?”
