White House counselor Kellyanne Conway is under fire after saying during an interview with her hometown newspaper that household appliances can record people at home.
Conway spoke to The Bergen Record over the weekend and was asked if she believed if Trump Tower was wiretapped, as the president recently accused his predecessor in a tweet.
“There was an article that week that talked about how you can surveil people through their phones, through their — certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways. And microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera. We know that is just a fact of modern life,” she said.
ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos took her to task on Good Morning America Monday.
He said to her: "You have no evidence that that kind of surveillance was used against Trump Tower."
She replied: "I have no evidence, but that's why there's an investigation."
Donald Trump took to Twitter to express support to his top aide, saying: "It is amazing how rude much of the media is to my very hard working representatives. Be nice, you will do much better!"
