WOLF BLITZER (HOST): Donald Trump in his major rally, in his big speech, he really singled out a reporter, Katy Tur, of NBC News. I want you to listen to what he said in front of all of those people. 


DONALD TRUMP: We have two more today in Florida and we have massive crowds. There's something happening. They are not reporting it. Katy, you're not reporting it, Katy. But there's something happening, Katy. There's something happening, Katy. 


BLITZER: Now, after he did that, she was singled out. She was harassed by a lot of the people over there. The last time we spoke, you told me that you shared my concerns about this singling out of these embeds, these reporters who are traveling with Donald Trump. You said you would talk to him about that. How did that conversation go? 

KELLYANNE CONWAY: The conversation was very productive and I've also talked to NBC News today. So, look, we want fair coverage and we want everybody to be safe at our rallies. I don't appreciate a lot of the threats that I get either from people who I guess are worried that we may win this thing. A lot of folks out there who should tamp is down, but in the case -- I'm glad you played entire clip because Donald Trump -- he's not asking people to be mean to her. He's not asking people to do anything, god forbid. He basically calls out some people in the media to say, please show our crowds. He talks to people in the media all of the time, privately and publicly. Including folks at CNN.

BLITZER: But don't you-- don't you sort of feel uncomfortable when he does that in front of all of those thousands? He's got huge crowd there and when he points to the journalists who are covering him and says these kinds of things, doesn't that make you feel uncomfortable, too? 

CONWAY: I would always urge our supporters at these rallies and elsewhere, Wolf, to be civil and to be respectful to each other because, again, if Hillary is going to be in the gutter, we should be the candidate much more joyful, much more positive, and much more uplifting and we are. As I say, I've already talked to NBC today.
