Kellyanne Conway Accidentally Told the Truth About James Comey, and Her Explanation is Classic Kellyanne Conway

Good Morning America/ABC

On Monday morning, Kellyanne Conway took to the airwaves to go after James Comey on behalf of Donald Trump, and raised some eyebrows when she remarked that Comey "swung an election."

She told George Stephanopolous:

"He swung an election, he thought the wrong person would win, the people in his household wanted the other person to win..."

It didn't take long for Twitter to notice that Conway was essentially admitting that Trump would not have won if not for Comey's interference.

So Conway has now reversed herself and is now claiming she was just joking, that she meant it to be sarcastic.

But some are skeptical, considering there was no indication from her tone in the interview itself that she meant it sarcastically at all.

But this shouldn't be surprising considering the White House often uses "just kidding" to excuse comments that Trump makes when he makes statements that are clearly meant to be taken seriously.

Such as when Trump accused Democrats of treason:

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday the President was "clearly joking" when he made the comment.
"He was making the point that even when good things are happening they are still sitting there angry," she said.

Or when he suggested police hit perpetrators' heads on their police cars when they're taking them away.

"When you guys put somebody in the car and you're protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over?" Trump said during a speech to law enforcement on Long Island, New York. "Like, don't hit their head, and they just killed somebody -- don't hit their head. I said, you can take the hand away, OK?"
Sanders said he was "making a joke at the time."
Or when Trump said Rex Tillerson should take an IQ test to prove who's smarter.
"The President certainly never implied that the secretary of state was not incredibly intelligent. He made a joke, nothing more than that," said Sanders. "He has full confidence in the secretary of state. They had a great visit earlier today. And they are working hand in hand to move the President's agenda forward."
