Grass is green, cookie dough tastes good, and the internet loves to laugh at Kellyanne Conway. That last universal truth was once again on display this week, when the media’s most beloved pariah appeared on Fox’s Hannity and came equipped with props that would make Carrot Top green with envy. If you missed it, Conway—in an attempt to defend Donald Trump Jr.—held up two sheets of paper reading “collusion,” “conclusion,” “illusion,” and “delusion”.
“What’s the conclusion? Collusion? No. We don’t have that yet,” Conway said as she crossed out the word ‘collusion.’ “I just thought we’d have some fun with words.” It was a baffling moment from a baffling person, who by now should get how the internet works. Hey Kellyanne, it works like this:
One person who found Conway’s move into prop comedy particularly delightful was Stephen Colbert. The Late Show host truly revels in his role as the thorn in Trump’s side, which was never more apparent on Thursday, when he brought some cue cards of his own. “Trump’s not the only one defending his son,” the host said. “Last night, senior White House adviser and Satan’s trophy wife Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox News and used a little visual aid to drive home her point.”
Colbert then turned to the camera and with the glee of an eight-year-old who just got his first Playstation said “Fun! I want to try!” Colbert proceeded to hold up some props of his own. “Trump Jr. tried to articulate, but that turned out to incriminate,” he said. “It’s something even an idiot would anticipate, and now he’s going to be an inmate.”
