DON LEMON (HOST): Hillary Clinton was interviewed for three hours at the FBI but all anyone is talking about is this controversy -- the tweets, right, with Donald Trump and they're talking about this star. So there is the star. They think it was the Holocaust star and there was anti-Semitism and it was changed to the circle. So when you’re saying they always have to apologize? 

KELLYANNE CONWAY: No you asked me about the other Trump people sometimes that were on with me.

LEMON: Did you apologize for this?

CONWAY: So what the man who tweeted it has said is he is married to a Jewish woman and that of course nobody intended any type of anti-Semitic references and that they changed it right away. But I do like what you said about how Hillary Clinton spent her weekend. Three hours with the FBI and --

LEMON: Yes, yes, yes. We're going to get to that, we're going to get to that. But this star that was changed to a circle so -- and they said it was a sheriff's star. It's not the sheriff's star. The sheriff's star has little circles on the end that looks like a sheriff's star, it's very obvious. This looks like the Jewish, the Holocaust star, and to say it's not the Holocaust star is just not the truth.

That's not ignorance and stupidity to tweet that and all of a sudden claim that's it’s not the star? That is the same thing. It's ignorant and it's stupid to tweet that, from which is an anti-Semitic, from a meme -- from an anti-Jewish site, from a hate site.
