Conway was asked about recent remarks by Trump where he said most economists dont believe a recession is looming for the country and whether she knew which specific economists the president was referring to.
Yes, I do. But Id like to know where youre getting your information from, because its nice to see the media finally cover the Trump economy. You seem to cover it only when you can use the Sesame Street word of the day: recession,’ Conway said. So youre using a tweet here or a report there, or an economists words here and there. The fact is, the fundamentals of our economy are very strong.

Conway appears to be referring to the Word of the Day segment on Sesame Street.
On Monday, the Associated Press reported that 34 percent of economists polled bythe National Association for Business Economics think a recession could hit the country by the end of 2021, up from 25 percent who said the same thing in February.
Conways Sesame Street quip was mocked by some on Twitter.

The 2008 Recession certainly didnt feel like we were living on Sesame Street.
