Don’t Forget Your Tin Foil Hat

WE have crazies on the Right…well that is an understatement….we have a wealth of batcrap crazies…..and the Trump administration has put most of them to work.

Remember those guys back in the day that wore a tin foil hat to stop the brain waves being tapped by aliens?  Or from receiving secret messages from space?  Nice to see that these people have found gainful employment…..within the Trump admin.

Well maybe those guys are not as crazy as we pretended they were…..and it goes all the way to the White House…..

She may have been speaking from her home in New Jersey, but Kellyanne Conway put the focus back on NYC’s Trump Tower on Sunday. In an interview with the Bergen County Record, Conway was asked about President Trump’s allegations that Trump Tower was wiretapped by the Obama administration, and her response was read by the Record as a suggestion that something “broader” may have been going on. The key lines: “What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other now … 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, microwaves that turn into cameras, etc. We know that that is just a fact of modern life.” Cue headlines like these:

  • “Kellyanne Conway Suggests That Obama Could Have Used Microwaves to Spy on Trump” (New York Magazine)
  • “Yes, Kellyanne Conway just suggested Trump Tower could have been monitored through TVs and microwaves” (Washington Post)

On Monday, Conway hit back at such coverage, tweeting, “response to Bergen Record was about surveillance articles in news & techniques generally, not about campaign. Headline just wrong.” On Good Morning America, she said she “was making a comment about the articles from this past week [like this one] … I wasn’t making a suggestion about Trump Tower. These are two separate things.” The Post still faults her for linking them, with Aaron Blake writing, “Her decision to invoke these kinds of surveillance techniques when asked about alleged monitoring of Trump Tower by the Obama administration is only going to [breathe] life into the story going forward.” As for any alleged wiretapping of Trump Tower, “The answer is I don’t have any evidence and I’m very happy that the House intelligence committee are investigating,” Conway said on GMA.

For me the best line was……”The Bergen Record journalist asked her was “do you know that Trump Tower was wiretapped?” — and said she’s “not in the job of having evidence.”

No better closing that that statement.

But if I had to find a better closing statement to add to the humor is one Sean Spicer…..he just had to add his version of the lunacy…..

According to Spicer’s new argument, Trump didn’t necessarily mean wire tapping when he said “wire tapping” — and reporters should know this because he put the phrase in quotation marks. By “wire tapping,” Trump could have been referring to any one among “a whole host of surveillance types.” Obviously.

Please stop talking!  You answer are dropping the IQ of anyone listening.

  1. ‘Twas Jon Stewart, I think, who first coined the term, ‘truthiness’ to describe those in Trump’s sphere of insanity related to public speaking, even before this woman provided the entire world with a perfect example of such ignorance, with her early comments on “alternative facts”. It still amazes me that there are, literally, more than a hundred million people in this country who believe such insanity to be gospel truth….

    But, it sure makes for a fine circus to watch, doesn’t it? No end to the fun & games, and all so easy to target with rationally humorous observations…. Easy money, so to speak, yes?….

    gigoid, the dubious

      1. Hopefully it will be only 4…but I am watching Pence…I do not rust him….he could make a move if given a chance….thanx for the re-blogs….chuq

      2. Just my assessment…..there is something untrustworthy about him….If Trump has major f*ck up then Pence becomes president…he is a theocrat….a scary thought in itself….chuq

  2. Sean Spicer should be “fired” but not “fired” in the way you typically get fired. Kellyanne Conway should just be “shot into space” but not like “shot into space” on a rocket, just generally speaking “shot into space”.

    LOL. Can’t really make this stuff up!
