Kellyanne Conway Was Being 'Sarcastic' About Comey Swinging the Election

  • Chris Cuomo and Kellyanne Conway

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

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday morning that former FBI Director James Comey changed the outcome of the 2016 election with his announcement about Hillary Clinton's emails. She also said Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton's email probe late in the campaign likely crippled her White House bid at a time she was leading in the polls.

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.

"At the end of your interview, George, he gave a free political commercial, telling people to go out there and vote against the president and his interests", Conway said.

Many observers and researchers have said the announcement, just days before the presidential election, helped push Trump over the top against his Democratic opponent.

After James Comey was sacked as head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation last May, many wondered when and if the former director would speak out.

"This guy swung an election", Conway told Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning America" Monday, while derisively rattling off a list of Comey's various misdeeds in government. "Show me the swing states where she was above 50 percent on October 20 before Comey came out ..."

"This misleading headline should include an eye roll and question mark".

During Sunday's interview, Comey said of Trump, "I think he's morally unfit to be president". "I don't think so", she wrote.

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".

Others were also quick to jump on Conway's Comey comments.
