Kellyanne Conway: I Was Just Joking When I Said James Comey Swung an Election

Source: Daily Beast, Good Morning America

In an interview with Good Morning America Monday, senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway turned heads when she said former FBI Director James Comey “swung an election” with the actions he took in 2016. The remarks appeared to undercut a main talking point pushed by Conway’s boss, President Donald Trump, that Hillary Clinton lost on her own incompetence as a candidate. And moments after the interview aired, Conway told The Daily Beast that she was being tongue-in-cheek. “I rolled my eyes and said ‘Really, this guy swung an election?’ It was sarcastic,” she said. Elsewhere in the interview, Conway accused Comey of being motivated by politics and love of power. She said he “struggled to answer basic questions and he looked a little shaky” in the 20/20 interview pegged to his new book, A Higher Loyalty. When George Stephanopoulos told Conway that Comey took Trump’s comment calling Michael Flynn “a good guy” to be “directions” to drop the investigation, she replied that Comey did nothing about it. “What did he do with it? Did he run out and tell the attorney general, ‘Please come in here, I feel uncomfortable?’” Conway said. “This man loved being in the proximity of power... until he got fired and wrote a book.” When asked if she knew what President Trump thought of the interview, she said: “The president is very confounded that this person is always able to divert the spotlight to him... He was a very deft way of making things about him.”

1. Why is this person not a clerk at Walgreens?

Why is someone this ugly (as a person not her looks), this untruthful, this vile, able to achieve such a high position in our system, or society?


Oh wait, yeah, forgot, republican party exists.

2. Was it a Real Joke, or a Fake Joke, Kellyanne?

Or maybe an Alternative Joke?

Americans have learned to expect lies from republicans. Disgraceful.

18. One would think that a US president would be in the oval on a Monday, but no. Any guesses?

Ding ding ding. Mar-a-lago-a-go-go, baby.

I heard they put him there to keep him busy with the Japanese Prime Minister, because they needed to keep him distracted for the Comey book release.

8. Nope. It was a Freudian slip letting us know what she really thinks. She stepped on her own strategy


She was trying to discredit Comey and is so stupid that she didn't think it through to realize that her statement would discredit tRump's so-called win in the Electoral College after losing the Election. Then she got reprimanded behind the scenes and has to walk back.

Kellyanne Conway on Comey: "This guy swung an election."
She just admitted Trump is an illegitimate “president!”#ComeyInterview

Whoa. Kellyanne seems to say Trump wouldn’t have won without the Comey announcement 11 days out.

Trump must be furious with Kellyanne Conway after she implied that Comey caused Hillary to lose the election. Wounding Trump’s fragile ego on TV will probably get her in more trouble than violating the Hatch Act on TV.

13. She wasn't joking in the slightest

If you watch the interview, she was unloading on Comey in every way possible, she wasn't joking or sarcastic in her criticism of him. It also makes no sense as she was attacking him. But it was obvious that the moment she said it, she understood what she just said and made it appear as if Comey tried to sway the election in Clinton's favour. But that also makes no sense as the polls had Clinton in the lead.

15. So Kellyanne crawls out from her cave where she has been hiding



And creates a sh*t storm with one sentence. She is pure talent and finesse. I am sure tRump is proud to have her on his team.
