Donald Trump aide says Barack Obama used ‘microwaves’ to spy

President Donald Trump’s senior aide Kellyanne Conway has been mocked for suggesting that former President Barack Obama monitored President Donald Trump through a microwave.

In an interview with USA Today, Ms Conway suggested the surveillance may have involved far more than wiretapping. “What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other. You can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets — any number of different ways.”

She claimed surveillance could be conducted with “microwaves that turn into cameras,” adding “We know this is a fact of modern life.”

Social media users mocked Ms Conway's claim with many saying they would be sure to check their hair and make-up before warming up their food from now on, the Telegraph reported.

Ms Conway reiterated the request by the White House that the allegations of wiretapping  be wrapped into a Congressional investigation into whether Russian intelligence operatives tried to influence the outcome of last November’s election, USA Today reported.

During the interview, she claimed Democrats who called for a deeper investigation of the alleged Russian links were trying to undermine the Trump presidency. “The investigation is about a bunch of people who can’t believe that Hillary Clinton lost the election,” she said.
