Kellyanne Conway Was Being ‘Sarcastic’ About Comey Swinging the Election

Kellyanne Conway doesn’t actually think that James Comey’s decisions in the 2016 election affected the outcome, clarifying remarks she made on Good Morning America this morning.

“I rolled my eyes and said ‘Really, this guy swung an election?’ It was sarcastic,” Conway told The Daily Beast moments after the interview.

The interview itself was a bit odd as George Stephanopoulos had to stop Kellyanne a few times and assert the truth amidst her false remarks.

She alleged that Comey “admitted” that President Donald Trump did not ask him to drop the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, saying that Comey said that the Justice Department never asked him to end the investigation, but that Trump himself was pretty clear in that wish.

“This man loved being in the proximity of power… until he got fired and wrote a book,” Conway shot back.
