Conway, during an interview with the Bergen County Record, attempted to clarify Trump's explosive tweets by saying that even though she is not aware of any evidence of Obama wiretapping Trump, she thinks there are many ways of spying, including through microwaves!
"What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately," she said. "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, etc., so we know that that is just a fact of modern life."

Although Conway later clarified that she didn't imply Obama spied on Trump using a microwave and that she was just stating that there are other ways to spy; Twitter had already begun its hilarious assault on her remarks:
