The White House is offering yet another wrinkle in its attempt to support President Trump’s allegation — unfounded, so far — that his campaign headquarters in Manhattan was wiretapped by the Obama administration. The latest comes from Trump’s senior counselor Kellyanne Conway.
She says the “surveillance” may be broader than even Trump suggested.
In a wide-ranging interview Sunday at her home in Alpine, where she lives with her husband — who was a possible nominee for U.S. solicitor general — and their four children, Conway, who managed Trump’s presidential campaign before taking the job as one of the president’s closest advisers, suggested that the alleged monitoring of activities at Trump’s campaign headquarters at Trump Tower in Manhattan may have involved far more than wiretapping.
“What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other,” Conway said as the Trump presidency marked its 50th day in office during the weekend. “You can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets — any number of ways.”
Conway went on to say that the monitoring could be done with “microwaves that turn into cameras,” adding: “We know this is a fact of modern life.”
First of all, I’d like to add this to the reasons why I love Kellyanne Conway and I’m totally down for an affair if she’s reading this. I love that a couple of weeks ago she was being screamed at for having her feet on a White House couch and now she’s holding interviews from her kitchen. Power moves only from this woman.
Before I dive into the technical part of the ‘surveillance and get into how Obama spied on Trump, I can’t help but ask why? Why would Obama want to spy on Donald Trump? Barack is on the way out of office. He can’t run for a third time. He’s the happiest man in the world right now. I have a hard time believing he was watching Trump through his microwave.
“Microwaves that turn into cameras. We know this is a fact of modern life”. I don’t even think The Jetsons conceived on microwave technology that also doubles as fucking Skype. Luckily the Obama administration was working overtime to find out what was going down at Trump Tower. I assume they just found an absurd amount of golden shower footage.
Modern life is crazy.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you believe the Kellyanne Conway microwaves theory. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
