Conway Makes Sarcastic Comment, CNN Chyron Claims She Thought Comey ‘Swung’ 2016 Election


White House Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway appeared on CNN Monday to sarcastically slam the idea the former FBI Director James Comey swung the presidential election, only for the show's chyron to parrot it as a sincere response.

"I saw Jim Comey last night and I said ‘this guy swung an election?' I don't think so," Conway told Chris Cuomo on CNN, shaking her head in disbelief at the notion.

"He struggled to answer basic questions," Conway added, further showing how unimpressed she was with Comey's interview.

CNN's chyron proceeded to falsely claim Conway thought Comey handed the election to Donald Trump with the chyron "KELLYANNE CONWAY: COMEY ‘SWUNG AN ELECTION.'"

About fifty minutes after Conway made the sarcastic comment, CNN host Christopher Cuomo affirmed Conway was sarcastic on his show.

Conway made a similar comment on ABC's "Good Morning America" Monday morning about her not believing Comey could swing the election.

She found the coverage of her words misleading there too.
