Kellyanne Conway attacked by a micro wave
Kellyanne Conway, the Trump whisperer, was attacked by a micro wave during her late night snack.
On Sunday, after her horrendous experience the night before, she said that at this point, US citizens should consider all appliances compromised. Even their microwaves.
"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, et cetera. So we know that that is just a fact of modern life," she said.
We feel we need to reassure the Trump whisperer that Microwaves (and micro waves), unless they come with an installed outward-facing camera, can't be used as a camera. But just to be sure, Vice asked a cybersecurity expert Steven Belloving, who said that "I think that that part of the comment is a non-technical person garbling something she heard but didn't really understand. Maybe something about how the Soviets beamed microwaves at the US embassy in Moscow back in the 1970s, or maybe it was about how terahertz waves or WiFi can see through walls. Or maybe it's about a 'smart,' connected, microwave oven. I don't know of any direct way to turn microwaves into cameras. However, I don't think that part of it is particularly important. What's more important - and what she should know, as a graduate of a very good law school - is that she's making baseless claims on less than no evidence."
Trump, a huge fan of West Wing, has always supported her whisperer, saying that - "Kellyanne Conway has been a trusted advisor and strategist who played a crucial role in my victory. She is a tireless and tenacious advocate of my agenda and has amazing insights on how to effectively communicate our message. I am pleased that she will be part of my senior team in the West Wing."

On Monday Conway, after having calmed down from Saturday night's attack by the micro wave, said that "I'm not Inspector Gadget. I don't believe people are using the microwave to spy on the Trump campaign. However, I'm not in the job of having evidence; that's what investigations are for."
Where the micro wave came from will have to be investigated by the FBI.
