Donald Trump and his team have really done themselves a great disservice by repeatedly attacking beloved former President Barack Obama.
First, Trump spent an entire weekend accusing Obama of wiretapping his phones in Trump Tower ahead of the presidential election – and he screwed himself over because now he’s being asked for evidence he can’t possibly produce. Then this week, Kellyanne Conway – who has already been banned from certain networks for her “alternative facts” – implied on national television that Obama might have been spying on Trump through a microwave. The insanity never ends with these two.
Conway made this ridiculous suggestion during an interview with USA Today in response to a question about the accusations that the Obama administration had wiretapped Trump’s phones. This was Conway’s response:
“What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other.
You can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets — any number of different ways.”
And then she said surveillance can be implemented with “microwaves that turn into cameras. We know this is a fact of modern life.”
Yes, Conway just said that Obama could have spied on Trump through his microwave. She pretty much immediately regretted her words, because this insane statement drew criticism from all over the internet – and one of the most epic responses came from Obama’s official photographer, Pete Souza.
Yesterday, the former White House photographer posted an image to Instagram that beat every other rebuttal to Conway. Posting on his account, Souza said:
“Someone has been photoshopping one of my photos. For the record, it wasn’t me.”
This is the best thing you’ll see on the internet today:
