Kellyanne Conway strikes again. After generously gifting the American people with the now famous “alternative facts” quote, many of us are now salivating at the mouth to hear what the senior White House advisor will say next, and wouldn’t you know it on Monday (March 13) Ms. Conway outdid herself.
During an interview with the Bergen Record, Conway said there were several covert methods in which the Trump campaign was surveilled including through televisions, phones and (wait for it) microwaves.
“There was an article that week that talked about how you can surveil people through their phones, through their — certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways. And microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera. We know that is just a fact of modern life.”
The topic of spying came up when Donald Trump took Twitter to accuse Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during his campaign. Trump however did not provide any evidence to back up his inflammatory claims. Shortly after Conway’s microwave claims, she began to trend on Twitter which prompted her to further clarify her comments.
“I’m not Inspector Gadget,” Conway said on CNN later Monday morning. “I don’t believe people are using the microwave to spy on the campaign.”
That Kellyanne. You really just have to love her.
