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

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

There are 2 comments on the Yahoo! story from 1 hr ago, titled Kellyanne Conway On James Comey: "This Guy Swung An Election".

Conway spent the morning rebutting the idea that she was attributing her boss' victory to Comey, retweeting this from CNN's Chris Cuomo - who didn't miss an opportunity to take a shot at a rival network.

Remember, too, that when Trump first fired Comey in 2017, one of the White House's initial defenses of the firing was because of how Comey mishandled the Clinton investigation, though Trump himself would later admit the Russian Federation investigation played a role. "I don't remember spelling it out, but it had to have been", he said in the interview.

"I rolled my eyes and said, 'Really, this guy swung an election?' It was sarcastic", she said.

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

She also tweeted her defense.

"This misleading headline should include an eye roll and question mark".

At the time of the October 2016 announcement, Trump repeatedly praised Comey's decision, saying he "did the right thing" by notifying Congress of the investigation's revival, which ultimately turned up no new evidence. "Kellyanne Conway slams Comey: "This guy swung an election" - ABC News", she said. Why not run out of the Oval Office and say, 'Hey attorney general, vice president - come back!'? She did this even as she's putting Comey on blast per the White House playbook. Trump recently called Comey's actions "one of the worst "botch jobs" of history".

Last July, the Daily Beast reported that an internal memo in the Trump campaign admitted that the Comey announcement had impacted the election.
