Kellyanne Conway's response to Comey interview contradicts Trump's talking point

'Good Morning America,'

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday that James Comey "swung" the 2016 presidential election, seemingly meaning President Donald Trump wouldn't have beaten Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton without the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's controversial actions days before the election.

CNN's chyron proceeded to falsely claim Conway thought Comey handed the election to Donald Trump with the chyron "KELLYANNE CONWAY: COMEY 'SWUNG AN ELECTION'". Conway asked Stephanopoulos, whose highly anticipated interview with Comey aired Sunday night.

Huh. So it seems Conway is criticizing Comey for swinging the election for Trump, something that Conway and Trump benefitted from, I guess?

In her chat with Cuomo, Conway insulated that Comey didn't have the power to swing the election, contradicting herself from earlier statements. All very weird stuff. "He loved being alone in the Oval Office, and wanted a piece of it". Check out the reactions below and on the following pages. "I don't think so", she wrote.

Conway was referencing comments Comey made in the interview and in his new book that his decision to make that announcement in late October may have been swayed by his assumption that Clinton was on target to win the election.

"This guy swung an election", Conway said.

Conway blasted Comey for what she described as "gutter" talk, referring to the Federal Bureau of Investigation director's openness in discussing the size of Trump's hands, the length of his tie and the business mogul's oft-ridiculed spray tan.

"If he objected to anything that he had witnessed in his very limited, very few meetings with President Trump, he should have said so".

"What we don't understand is why, if you're going to meet the president of the United States, the president-elect, you're not saying 'my ticker list is I've got to tell him about the Russian interference, I must tell him about the investigations that are ongoing, '" Conway said.

"Did he run out and tell the attorney general please come in here, I feel uncomfortable?" "The president hardly knew the man".
