CNN Leaves Trump Surrogate Speechless After Declaring He's Trailing In All Polls

August 17, 2016

CNN anchor Brianna Keilar declared that Donald Trump wasn't leading in any polls on Wednesday, leaving his Special Counsel, Michael Cohen, speechless.

Prior to this declaration, Cohen blasted Keilar for suggesting that the Trump campaign was going through a campaign "shakeup" and insisted that it was doing fine.

"You say it's not a shakeup, but you guys are down," Keilar said.

"Says who?" Cohen interrupted.

"Polls. Most of them. All of them?" Keilar said.

An awkward silence followed as Cohen sat looking at the camera until he repeated his question again. Keilar then replied that she had already answered his question and that the polls said Trump was down against Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

Cohen then conceded and the CNN host continued asking Cohen questions regarding them. Trump is trailing in almost every swing state and has trailed Clinton since the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention.

Early Wednesday morning,  Trump's campaign announced that Stephen Bannon, the executive chairman of Breitbart News, would become the new campaign chief executive. Trump's campaign also announced that it was promoting Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser and campaign pollster, to be Trump's campaign manager in place of Paul Manafort.

This marks Trump's third campaign manager in three months. Corey Lewandowski was the first before being fired in June.
