Stephen Colbert mocked Kellyanne Conway comments about that “microwaves that turn into cameras” could have been used to spy on President Trump’s campaign.
“It’s true, it’s true, microwaves that turn into cameras. How do you think we film this show? Jim, show them camera three,” Colbert said as the camera panned to a microwave on a tripod.
Colbert also retrieved a Hot Pocket from the microwave, and spoke to former President Obama through the microwave.
“President Obama,” he whispered. “I miss you.”
Colbert also joked about Conway’s surveillance claims, hitting her for saying she wasn’t “Inspector Gadget” in an interview.
“Okay, Inspector Gadget had all sorts of tools at his disposal, gadget skates, gadget ‘copter,” Colbert said, referencing the cartoon detective. “Kellyanne Conway has only one move, ‘go, go alternative facts.’ ”
Conway suggested in a new interview, without providing evidence, that the Trump campaign may have been monitored in “any number of ways.”
“What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other,” Conway told the Bergen County Record in New Jersey. “You can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets.”
