This is Kellyanne Conway
Kellyanne Conway is a White House aide and the former president and CEO of The Polling Company Inc./Woman Trend. She endorsed Republican nominee, Ted Cruz, in the 2016 election and ran a pro-Cruz political action committee called “Keep the Promise I” which ran multiple ads critical of Trump’s ideas.
She was brought on as one of the Counsellors to the President once President Donald Trump won the election, and serves alongside Steve Bannon
She is no stranger to controversies.
Conway has been accused of a multitude of discussions such as coining the term “alternative facts”, which she used to defend the White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s comments, saying that they are facts that are presented in a different way. Her use of the phrase has been called into criticism multiple times saying that “provable falsehoods” are not “alternative facts” but simply “lies”.
Some have defended her use of the term, saying that it’s an understood law phrase where both side present facts defending their side of the story and should be understood given Conway’s law degree.
Perusing through a Law dictionary indicates that there is no such term as “alternative facts”.
Conway also invented the “Bowling Green Massacre”, a made up event which she used to defend President Trump’s Immigration ban. However, no such massacre occurred in Bowling Green, Kentucky. She later changed her dialogue to “Bowling Green Terrorists” which may refer to the two Iraqis arrested in Bowling Green.
She also leaked negative stories about Sean Spicer and publicly endorsed the products of the President’s daughter, Ivanka Trump. Because of which, her credibility is now called into question, and many media outlets have denied her one-on-one interviews.
The Microwaves Have Eyes
In an interview about President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claims that Barrack Obama wiretapped the communication network in Trump Tower, with Bergen County Record, Conway made a misstatement that resulted in utter hilarity. The conversation goes as follows:
“Do you know if Trump Tower was wiretapped?” Asked the interviewer.
“What I can say is that there are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately. There was an article this week that talked about how you can surveil someone through their phones, through their – certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways, and microwaves that turn into cameras, etc., so we know that that is just a fact of modern life.”
Conway later clarified that she wasn’t referring to Trump Towers and general surveillance methods, but the damage was already done.
The Twitterverse was relentless
