Conway was questioned about President Donald Trump accusing Barack Obama of wiretapping him during the election. And her answer was perplexing, to say the least.
“There are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately. There was an article this week that talked about how you can surveil through their phones, certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways, and microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera,” she said. “We know that this is just a fact of modern life.”

When George Stephanopoulos pointed out that Conway never addressed President Trump’s claims in her answer, she explained she was talking about “surveilling” in general. But Conway was immediately mocked for her comments that microwaves are spying on us.
Fox News anchor Smith, in particular, had enough. During his show, called her a liar, debunked her claims, and started feuding with Conway. “We really don’t quote [Conway] much anymore because, well, history,” he jabbed. “Microwaves do not turn into cameras. Fox News can now confirm microwaves heat food. Cameras take pictures.”

And Smith has apparently been tired of Conway for a while. He added later in the segment that Conway’s “previous words have been up for debate.” Indeed, Conway lies and spins her words all the time. She is the one who talked about “alternative facts” when asked about the crowd size at President Trump’s inauguration.
In fact, Smith has been pretty critical of the entire Trump Administration. He said there was too much lying going on after it was revealed Michael Flynn concealed his foreign lobbying. He blasted Sean Spicer after CNN and other organizations were banned from a gaggle at the White House. And he demanded that President Trump give the American people answers about Russia.
Smith’s not the only media member who has been battling with Conway, though. After all, when you’re the face of “alternative facts,” journalists are going to fight you when you say something crazy. At one point CNN refused to book Conway. And Mika Brezezinski said she was banning Conway from Morning Joe.
