Kellyanne Conway, on a couch littered with embroidered throw pillows, told Bergen Record columnist Mike Kelly that we can all be surveilled by “microwaves that turn into cameras.” This, according to one of Trump’s most distinguished fabulists, is “just a fact of modern life.” Pardon me while I have an aneurysm.
No such piece of tech exists, because why would anyone ever want a Transformers-esque camera-wave?
When asked about her boss’s allegations that he’d been wiretapped by Barack Obama—allegations which were made with zero evidence and have been regarded as baseless—Conway responded thusly:
Conway: What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately.
Conway: 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, et cetera.
By “an article” Conway was almost certainly referring to the unverified Wikileaks Vault 7 documents which supposedly originated with the CIA.
