Kellyanne Conway has made some egregiously ignorant statements in times past, but perhaps nothing tops her recent comment on microwaves as spy cameras.
Of course, it all started with President Donald Trump, who's making headlines for accusing former President Barack Obama of wiretapping him during the 2016 campaign..
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
Conway later spoke with Bergan County Record columnist Mike Kelly, citing information from Wikileaks about CIA surveillance:
"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," she said. "And microwaves that turn into cameras."
Needless to say, the internet came for Conway. However, "The Late Show" host, Stephen Colbert, is topping all the trolls with his brilliant sketch.
"It's true, it's true," Colbert begins. "Microwaves that turn into cameras. How do you think we film this show? Jim, show 'em camera three over here."
The camera pans to, well, a microwave. The audience cheers and claps.
"Excuse me, my hot pocket's done," Colbert says as the microwave dings. He walks over, reaches in and takes a bite.
"By the way, President Obama," he says before lowering his voice to a whisper, "I miss you."
Same, Colbert. Same.
