Kellyanne Conway’s use of props on ‘Hannity’ didn’t go over well on Twitter
The internet pounced as soon as the paper came out.
Conway was asked by host Sean Hannity, a steadfast supporter of Trump, about the latest controversy surrounding Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer promising damaging information on then-candidate Hillary Clinton last June.
After agreeing with Hannity on the unfairness of the media and thanking him for “talking about America so often,” she brought out two pieces of white paper with the words “conclusion,” “collusion,” “illusion,” and “delusion.”
Here is what it looked like:
“This is to help all the people at home,” Conway said, holding up the first sheet of paper. “What’s the conclusion? Collusion? No. They don’t have that yet.”
Conway continued onto the next piece of paper, as Hannity chuckled.
“I see illusion and delusion,” she said. “So just so we’re clear everyone. Four words: conclusion, collusion, no. Illusion, delusion, yes. I just thought we’d have some fun with words.”
