Conway: Rumors of White House Staffing Shakeup Are 'Ridiculous'
Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, said that rumors of a White House staffing shakeup are "ridiculous."
"We've been hearing this for four-and-a-half months. It's completely ridiculous," Conway said tonight on "The Story."
"Everybody who was supposed to be allegedly in the doghouse still works in the White House," Conway pointed out.
Amid the frenzy over former FBI Director James Comey's testimony to Congress about his concerns over private conversations with President Trump, Thursday featured only business as usual at the White House, Conway said.

Conway expressed her hope that "people would focus beyond the silly unfounded gossip and who's testifying on which day and really focus on the real people impact."
Conway declined to comment when pressed about whether tapes exist of conversations between Comey and the president.
The president has confidence in those who work for him, she reiterated, although reports swirled several days ago that a frustrated Attorney General Jeff Sessions had offered to resign.
Conway stressed that the administration is moving forward with its agenda despite the distractions, and mentioned that the president met with "ObamaCare victims" on Wednesday.
Trump also met with mayors and governors about infrastructure projects, and is working on taxes and the budget as well.
"We're just plodding forward," Conway said.
