So, it’s confirmed. Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway has officially gone around the bend. She thinks she’s Grover from “Sesame Street.”
In an interview with Fox’s Sean Hannity on Wednesday, Conway actually used props to “help the people at home” understand what’s really happening in the Trump-Russia controversy. Her segment came a couple of days after The New York Times reported President Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., met with a Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, during the 2016 presidential campaign.
The ins-and-outs of Trump’s alleged links with the Kremlin are enough to make one’s head spin — which is presumably why Conway brought along her two flash cards and schooled people on how the only “conclusion” was that there was no “collusion.”
“In case you run out of time, this is how I see it so far,” Conway said, holding up the two placards. “This is to help all the people at home. What’s the conclusion? Collusion? No. We don’t have that yet,” said Conway, hastily scratching out the words with a red Sharpie. “I see illusion and delusion.”
“So just so we’re clear, everyone: four words. Collusion, no. Illusion, delusion, yes,” she added. “I just thought we’d have some fun with words. A Sesame [Street] Grover’s word of the day, perhaps.”
It is a bit insulting to see how Conway perceives the intellect of Americans. She thinks the general public is apparently so dumb she has to use flash cards, like a kindergarten teacher, to make them understand what’s going on in the political scenario.
Not many Twitter users were fans of her new tactic either. So obviously, memes abound.
