My microwave oven is spying on me! Kellyanne Conway told me so:
“What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately.”
“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. So we know that that is just a fact of modern life.”
— “Kellyanne Conway alludes to even wider surveillance of Trump campaign,” Mike Kelly , Bergen Record
She may be right. Ms. Conway’s microwave even has its own twitter account (@KellyannesMicro). Frankly, that toaster oven is looking pretty shifty, too. Anyway, the Presidential Advisor is just doing her job, distracting the press and public from the Chief Executive’s delusional wiretapping claims with tales about her perfidious small appliances.
