Kellyanne Conway, campaign manger-turned-senior adviser for President-elect Donald Trump, clashed with CNN host Chris Cuomo early Monday over Trump's continued personal use of Twitter.

Trump — after Vice President-elect Mike Pence was booed Friday at a showing of the hit musical "Hamilton" — tweeted many times over the weekend how rude the cast and audience was to Pence and even called on them to apologize. Trump later criticized "Saturday Night Live" as a "totally one-sided, biased show."

Trump's continued use of Twitter, however, is a complete mystery to Cuomo.

"Why take it up? Why take up 'SNL'? No president does that. Why waste time? Why distract?" he asked Conway.

"Why do you care?" she shot back. "Who's to say he can't do that? Make a comment — spend five minutes sending a tweet, making a comment."

Conway went on to explain that Cuomo was wrongly assigning "wrongdoing" and "malice" to Trump. "I think we should all learn from the election that this doesn't fly with the voters," she said.

"This network and other people will always be focused on divisions," she said. "How about accepting the election results, Chris, and letting him form a government?"
