Tinfoil Tina charges to the Precedent's defense
And in her usual deceitful fashion creates confusion to distract from the Precedent Beetlefart's copious wrongdoings. Her latest planned pratfall included spying microwaves.
Kellyanne Conway, President Trump’s senior adviser, amplified Mr. Trump’s claim that President Barack Obama had tapped his telephone, suggesting on Monday that the former president’s surveillance effort could have employed any number of devices, even including a microwave oven.Our Little Tinfoil Tina spouts a lot of nonsense and never has any evidence because it gives the media so much joy when they can show off how much they know about what microwaves can really do. All this conveniently turns attention away from the latest Trumpery perpetrated by Precedent Beetlefart. And that is what she is paid to do.
Ms. Conway quickly clarified that she was not, in fact, accusing the former president of spying via a kitchen appliance, arguing that her comments had been taken out of context.
“I’m not Inspector Gadget,” she said Monday on CNN. “I don’t believe people are using the microwave to spy on the Trump campaign.”
But in an interview on Sunday with a columnist for The Record of Bergen County, N.J., she said that Mr. Obama’s spying efforts against Mr. Trump could have been far more extensive than a simple telephone wiretap.
“What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other,” Ms. Conway told the paper. “You can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets — any number of ways.”
Surveillance can even be carried out with “microwaves that turn into cameras,” she added. “We know this is a fact of modern life.”
Neither Mr. Trump nor anyone at the White House has presented any evidence for the claim, instead asking Congress to investigate it as part of its inquiry into Russia’s interference in the presidential election, and vowing not to comment further until that examination is completed.
Ms. Conway told CNN that she had not been referring to the president’s charges when she talked about microwave surveillance, nor could she offer any proof of his allegations.
“I’m not in the job of having evidence,” she said. “That’s what investigations are for.”
Ms. Conway said she had never meant to imply that Mr. Obama had used a microwave to spy on Mr. Trump, saying headlines asserting as much were misleading.
