You’ve gotta hand it to Kellyanne Conway, she has a true gift for creating things on the spot, right out of thin air.
The counselor to the president gave an interview in her home conducted by Mike Kelly, where she commented on surveillance in relation to Trump’s accusations of wire-tapping against the Obama administration.
How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!

“There are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately,” she said. “There was an article this week that talked about how you can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways. And microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera. So we know that that is just a fact of modern life.”
Yes, you read that right. Microwaves that turn into cameras.
When asked for clarification about the comment, Kellyanne pivoted and claimed that she “was not Inspector Gadget. I don’t believe people are using the microwave to spy on the Trump campaign,” even though that’s exactly what she alluded to in her statement, adding “I’m not in the job of having evidence. That’s what investigations are for.”
Naturally, twitter had a field day.

Oh Kellyanne, we thought you might have learned after “alternative facts” and the Bowling Green Massacre. Maybe the third time is the charm for the message to sink in?
