White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told Fox News' '"The Ingraham Angle" Wednesday there's "a lot of noise and a lot of nonsense" about the Trump administration — hours after her husband claimed the president told "pathological" lies.

The details: George Conway is a vocal critic of Trump. The president's son Eric Trump says that disrespects Kellyanne Conway.

  • In his latest attack, George Conway criticized the president for telling "absurd" lies and claiming former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's sentencing judge cleared him of collusion.
  • Kellyanne Conway has never publicly addressed her husband's criticisms of Trump.
  • On "The Ingraham Angle," she denounced the Republican senators against Trump's border wall emergency declaration and said he'd issue a veto if it's overturned. She also attacked Democrats who say he dehumanizes people and the media for not covering positive Trump administration stories.

What she's saying: "I think the media mattered to themselves and to each other," Kellyanne Conway told Laura Ingraham. "But there is a lot of noise and a lot of nonsense out there. I think people know that they are doing much better."

Tallying Trump's climate changes

The Trump administration's scuttling or weakening of key Obama-era climate policies could together add 1.8 gigatons of carbon dioxide equivalent to the atmosphere by 2035, a Rhodium Group analysis concludes.

Why it matters: The 1.8 gigatons is "more than the combined energy emissions of Germany, Britain and Canada in one year," per the New York Times, which first reported on the study.
