In case you haven’t heard, Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last night amidst rumors that the bureau’s investigation into the president’s ties to Russia were heating up bigly.
According to Team Trump, the termination had absolutely nothing to do with Comey’s investigation of Trump’s relationship with the Kremlin and was instead done at the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosentein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who, BTW, was supposed to have recused himself from any investigations involving Trump/Russia after he was caught lying under oath about his own ties to the Kremlin.
So last night, Kellyanne Conway came out of hiding to appear on CNN and lie, er, speak to Anderson Cooper about everything. She spent several minutes talking in circles, accusing Cooper of “looking at the wrong set of facts” and being “unkind,” and insisting the Comey’s firing was about his mishandling of the Hillary Clinton‘s emails. (Remember those?)
“As a candidate, Donald Trump praised James Comey,” Cooper reminded Conway. “Donald Trump talked about this on the campaign all the time. All of sudden the White House is concerned about James Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s email?”
To which, Conway replied: “You’re going back to the campaign. This man is the president of the United States. He acted decisively today.”
“That makes no sense,” Cooper shot back. “He said one thing as a candidate and now he’s concerned as president?”
“It makes complete sense,” Conway argued, incoherently. “Because he has lost confidence in the FBI director.”
Cooper replied with one of the most epic eye rolls ever caught on live television. And you better believe the internet took notice. Let’s see how people have been responding…
First, there’s the folks on Twitter…

"That makes no sense." Nothing feeds my soul like @andersoncooper's contempt for this incoherent ghoul.
