Conway suggests Trump was bugged through microwaves

Now we understand why she's been pulled from making so many public appearances.

Conway suggests Obama bugged Trump using ‘microwaves’. Things went downhill from there.

Quote:
Though Trump initially accused Obama of “tapping my phones in October,” Conway suggested the surveillance might have gone much further than that. Asked by The Bergen Record if she “know[s] whether Trump Tower was wiretapped?” Conway replied, “What I can say is that there are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately. There was an article this week that talked about how you can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways. Microwaves that turn into cameras, etcetera.”

On Monday morning Conway was repeatedly asked to explain why she thinks there’s any reason to believe the Obama administration would used microwaves to spy on Trump. (WikiLeaks’ recent dump of CIA documents indicates some microwaves have the capability to be used as cameras. It appears Conway’s claim was based on that.)

During an appearance on the Today show, Conway responded to questioning by abruptly trying to change the topic to health care and suggesting the media should focus on more important issues. But host Savannah Guthrie reminded her that it was Trump who concocted the wiretapping allegation, not journalists.

Is someone preparing the rubber room yet? I think she is finally having a meltdown.

Maybe she'll try putting her head in one and take a picture.

Conway would've totally fallen for that one gag website that promises to use your computer monitor to take a photo of you.

You can take photos with microwaves. Radar for instance.

Fake news! That's just what the toaster wants her to believe, so as to deflect attention from the fact the kettle is a member of Obama's deep state, and conspiring with the fridge!

No, Kellyanne, microwaves cannot turn into cameras

Quote:
Because a microwave oven does not have an image sensor or film with which to capture light, it is incapable of taking pictures, and therefore cannot be "turn(ed) into" a camera. Plus, unless your microwave is connected to the Internet (extremely few today are), there is no way for someone to hack it to spy on you.

So why did Conway say what she did? She might have read this MIT report on a microwave camera, though that still requires some specialized equipment you probably won't find in your kitchen. It's more likely she was referring to the Wikileaks Vault 7 documents that described how the CIA was reportedly able to get data from iOS and Android devices, although that doesn't explain the microwave connection. Regardless of the reason for Conway's unfounded claim, rest assured today's microwave ovens can't turn into cameras that spy on you.

She's not *entirely* wrong, but it would be highly impractical and obvious for a tall office building:

MIT's 3-D Microwave Camera Can See Through Walls

If she was thinking of microwave ovens, though, no, they are just heating devices. Even if someone built a smart microwave with internet and a camera (which I would not put past Samsung), the camera would be pointing at the turntable, not outside.

If you wanted to spy on Trump Tower, renting office space in a nearby building and setting up a video camera with telephoto lens + acoustic mike planted by a window washer or housekeeper would be more practical.

See, here's the thing...

Transformers are giant robots that turn into cars, trucks, and airplanes, right? Do you think there was a microwave oven Transformer? He could have been called "TooHot McColdInTheMiddle".

I want the press corps equipped with air-horns. Anytime Trump or one of his feckless mouths of sauron start distracting with speculation, made-up-shit, false equivalencies, suggestive nonsense... they need to use them. Aggressively.

Microwaves don't exist...they're a hoax created by Obama to keep you from using convection ovens...

Ms. Conway told CNN that in her interview, she had not been referring to the president’s charges when she talked about microwave surveillance, nor could she offer any proof of his allegations.

“I’m not in the job of having evidence,” she said. “That’s what investigations are for.”


The woman actually said those words, "I'm not in the job of having evidence".

Probably? PROBABLY???

Shit like this is why the press will lose at "explaining" things and we'll get Trump for eight years.
