“CNN anchor Chris Cuomo grilled President Donald Trump`s top counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday about the president`s unfounded surveillance claims.
When asked on Sunday by the Bergen Record about Trump`s unfounded claims that President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower before the election, Conway had responded by suggesting that microwaves could be used for surveillance purposes.
In a live televised interview that lasted over 20 minutes on CNN on Monday morning, Conway appeared to slightly walk back her statement, saying she was “not Inspector Gadget” and didn`t think people used microwaves to spy on the Trump campaign.”
In the interview with the Bergen Record Conway asserted that there are microwaves that turn into cameras, “that is just a fact of modern life” she added for emphasis.
In an alternate universe where alternative facts are the norm, there may very well be microwave ovens that turn into cameras, but in the very real universe where we live, I`m not going to put on a clean shirt in case my microwave oven decides to take a pic of me when I nuke my popcorn.
Conway isn`t Inspector Gadget, a rocket scientist or a credible spokesperson for Donald Trump.
But even the smartest person in the world will come across like an idiot trying to explain or justify Trump`s perplexing tweets.
Former president Barack Obama didn`t wiretap Trump Tower. Period. End of story.
Trying to decipher what a Donald Trump tweet means makes as much sense as trying to explain what a Trump wet fart means in a geopolitical sense.
According to Wikipedia Inspector Gadget is dim-witted, clueless, incompetent, oblivious, and gullible. On second thought maybe Conway is Inspector Gadget.
