Kellyanne Conway Was Being 'Sarcastic' About Comey Swinging the Election

Kellyanne Conway Was Being 'Sarcastic' About Comey Swinging the Election

This was most recently evidenced by a television hit in which she admitted that former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey swung the election for Trump. Unfortunately, the presidential counselor accidentally suggested that it was Comey's intervention in 2016 that delivered the presidential election to her boss, Donald Trump.

"This guy swung an election", she told George Stephanopoulos. Conway's remark contradicts the White House's longstanding position, however, which is that the announcement had no significant impact on the election.

The comments come the morning after the airing of Comey's interview with ABC News, his first since being fired by Trump last May.

Conway appeared to reverse her statement later Monday morning during an interview with CNN.

Huh. So it seems Conway is criticizing Comey for swinging the election for Trump, something that Conway and Trump benefitted from, I guess? "I don't remember spelling it out, but it had to have been", he said in the interview.

On Twitter following her spot on the program, Conway beat a hasty retreat, saying the "swung an election" line had been meant to be sarcasm. "I don't think so".

In a subsequent CNN interview, she made clear she was paraphrasing Democrats who feel that Comey swung the election.

She also smacked down the IJR for running with ABC's framing.

He went on, "I was not his fan, but I'll tell you what, what he did he brought back his reputation".

Trump and the White House later reversed their position on Comey's handling of the Clinton investigation, saying it was actually the reason the president unexpectedly fired him.
