Then she began trying to talk over Cuomo and went back to the well of thought to say that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was nothing but Democrat agents angling for Hillary Clinton to pull out the 2016 election.
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday that Trump is perplexed that Comey is receiving so much attention for what she characterized as a "revisionist" version of his limited interactions with her boss.
"He looked a little shaky", Ms Conway said of Mr Comey, on ABC's Good Morning America. "He thought the wrong person would win; people in his household wanted the other person to win; and at the end of your interview, George, he gave a free political commercial telling people to go out there and vote against the president". It's really hard to follow, which is nothing new for those who track Conway. Or what? She later "explained" that she was "being sarcastic".
Many online jumped on Conway's comments Monday morning, saying she admitted that "Trump wouldn't have won without the Comey".
She found the coverage of her words misleading there too.
"I think it's possible". "Show me the swing states where she was above 50 percent on October 20 before Comey came out ..."
Days before the election, Trump argued it "took guts" for Comey to "make the move that he made in light of the kind of opposition that he had where they're trying to protect her from criminal prosecution".
In his tweet, Trump complained that Comey "drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her" and asserted that in deciding how to handle the case, Comey "based his decisions on her poll numbers". Trump recently called Comey's actions "one of the worst "botch jobs" of history".
First, I have no doubt that Trump is very sincerely confounded at Comey's ability to grab the spotlight.
