Donald Trump is still talking often about how he beat Hillary Clinton in the election and still calls her all sorts of sordid nicknames, such as "Crooked Hillary."

Yet oddly, in an interview on Wednesday, Kellyanne Conway said no one at the White House discusses the former Secretary of State.

Conway was being interviewed on CNN by Chris Cuomo on Wednesday and said many can't get over the election, but they never discuss Clinton, who it's known actually won the popular vote.

"We don't care about her. Nobody here talks about her," she said. "Nobody here talks about Hillary Clinton, I promise you."

Yet just earlier that day, it was Trump bringing up his opponent yet again. It was during a news conference with Norwegian Minister Erna Solberg, and he discussed winning the election and that there was "no collusion" with Russia.

"Hillary was not for a strong military and Hillary — my opponent — was for windmills," he said.

According to CNN, during one answer at the news conference, he brought up that there was "no collusion," or similar wording, with Russia eight times in less than two minutes.

That was one fact that Conway was eager to back up after Cuomo asked her about Russia's influence on the election.

"The idea that we would have to look any further than Hillary Clinton to beat Hillary Clinton is a fantasy," she insisted, while also saying that what contributed to her loss was "unattractive policies" and "lack of connective tissue" to Americans who'd been "forgotten."

Cuomo wanted to know who "we" was. Did this group also include Donald Trump Jr, Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort, a man who is now charged with conspiracy against the U.S.?

But Conway replied nothing happened in that meeting in 2016 between those three from Trump's inner circle and a Russian lawyer who was promising to deliver dirt on Clinton: "The point is you can't get over the election."

"I'll make you a deal," offered Conway. "I'll never talk about her again, but then you can't talk about the 2016 election."

Time will tell how long she'll keep up her end of the bargain.
