Jake Tapper did not let up on Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway. She continued to spin as she does all of the times when confronted with her own words calling Trump a whiner. Tapper did not allow her to make Trump's 'rigged election' claim to get any traction for his viewers as he did his journalistic duty.

Here is the exchange.

Jake Tapper: Let's talk about this idea that everything is rigged. Yesterday, Mr. Trump once again arguing that the election will be rigged. It's a charge that he makes, with no real evidence to suggest it, that many Republican secretaries of state and others are very upset that he's making. Now, back in April, when you were working against Donald Trump when you were supporting Ted Cruz and advising his super PAC, you had some tough words for Mr. Trump when he was lashing out -- lashing out at the time against the system being rigged. Take a listen.

Kellyanne Conway in a video clip: We hear from the Trump campaign rules -- that rules change, it's not fair, the system is rigged, the system is corrupt. You can whine and campaign all you want that you didn't know the rules.

Jake Tapper: Is this a pattern with Mr. Trump? If he starts losing, he starts lashing out and calling the system corrupt and calling it rigged?

Kellyanne Conway: No, it's not a pattern for him. I think, if you had Hillary Clinton in this chair, and you asked her every hypothetical situation possible, would she -- would she respect results of the election, what if, just hypothetically speaking, since it happened in 2000, out of six million votes cast in Florida, there was a difference of 530 or so? Would -- would Hillary Clinton accept the election result? Would Donald Trump be forced to? Or would they do what Al Gore did, which is concede the election to George W. Bush, call back, and retract the concession, and then throw it into an unprecedented five or six weeks, Jake, until the United States Supreme Court decided who the victor was in Florida and in"

Jake Tapper: But, Kellyanne, that's not -- it's not the same thing. It's not the same thing.

Kellyanne Conway: It is.

Jake Tapper: No, because there was a state-mandated because the margin of error was so small. Donald Trump is out there saying that, if he loses Pennsylvania, for example, a state that has not gone Democratic for a president since 1988, he is saying the only way he is going to lose Pennsylvania is if it's stolen. I mean, he is right now telling people that, if he loses, it's because there will be corruption. And there's no evidence of it. You can't compare that to a state- mandated recount. There's always state-mandated recounts. There is going to be one, at least -- at least one, on November 8, after November 8, because some elections come in close. He's saying the entire system is rigged. And that's not the same thing.

Kellyanne Conway: It is.

Jake Tapper: No, because there was a state-mandated because the margin of error was so small. Donald Trump is out there saying that, if he loses Pennsylvania, for example, a state that has not gone Democratic for a president since 1988, he is saying the only way he is going to lose Pennsylvania is if it's stolen. I mean, he is right now telling people that, if he loses, it's because there will be corruption. And there's no evidence of it. You can't compare that to a state- mandated recount. There's always state-mandated recounts. " He's saying the entire system is rigged. And that's not the same thing.

The video here shows a robotic Conway spinning with a straight face even when forcefully refuted.
