    Hey, after an extended absence, Kellyanne Conway is back! And yeah, she's back bigly, with a warning that the US government is spying on you through your TVs and even your Microwave Ovens:

    So yeah, be warned that if you like to warm up a mug of hot chocolate in the middle of the night, you'd better have your PJ's on!

    Don't stick anything in the microwave that you don't want the government to see!

    I'll assume that that filthy lying sow is counting on the outrage of the deplorables by the CIA leaks last week to the point where any evidence or critical thinking simply has become obsolete.

    She's referencing the recent WikiLeaks release of CIA hacking tools, which indeed confirmed that the agency can spy on you through your television.

    Wouldn't be surprised if microwaves were in on it, too. What's the point of this thread?

    I know I don't say ANYTHING when I'm using my pencil sharpener and blender. And my toaster? I know it's listening. I just hope KAC doesn't wear her tin foil hat around her microwave. That would be shocking!!

    And microwaves that turn into cameras? Could this be how Obama personally wire tapped Trump, through his gold plated microwave oven?

    I don't know how advanced your microwave is - but I've never seen one with a camera.

    It might get a lot of use reheating KFC and Burger King.

    Let me guess, you also don't care about evidence of Trump being wiretapped by Obama? :)

    I think she's referring to microwave rays being used for surveillance. Laser microphones are a thing, and are used on glass to pickup the vibrations of someone speaking. Hell you can do it with a bag of chips if you needed to.



    That said, this woman was being praised during the campaign as being a media genius....if what I said above is what she was actually referring do, what a crappy job she's done in the media that ISN'T the right wing echo chamber.

    Can you please direct me to a website that sells microwaves with hidden cameras ?

    The Sharper Image had one in the 80s. TrumpWave - perfect for defrosting Trump Steaks.

    Um, no. No, she wasn't. She first talked about phones, then TVs, and then, "microwaves that turn into cameras". She's plainly worried about physical objects like microwave ovens, not about airwaves.

    Poltergeist IV - KAC gets sucked into a microwave and leads people away from the truth and into the world of Alternative Facts

    You know I must say, if this "administration" were this disastrous without at least being humorous, it would be a hell of a lot worse. At least they entertain us while destroying our country with their halfwhitted schemes. It's fun being able to join the rest of the world in pointing and laughing at the circus that is our pathetic government and our weak ass leader and his entourage of inbreds.

    :rolleyes: You and KellyAnn will have to explain to me how Microwave ovens can see my willie without a camera. This should be good. I can't wait.

    To show how ridiculous the people you side with are.

    I'm pretty sure she'd be referring to microwaves that've been tampered with, not actual off-the-shelf microwaves.

    We already know the NSA intercepts devices en route to their final destination, tampering with them for surveillance purposes. Cisco routers are an example. Why is it so far fetched to believe they'd hijack other items and install taps in them?

    Ah, I've got to love the backspin and reverse engineering explanations that the Trump administration and their supporters do when they get caught saying something dumb. Say what you mean, mean what you say. Especially when in a communications position. Is KellyAnn really that bad at her job?

    'Microwaves turning into cameras' is what she said. I do not discount it as being outside of the capabilities of the NSA/CIA. It in fact wouldn't be that hard to tap a microwave before it gets delivered to a customer.

    These are agencies that can hack into car software and make it have an accident. People that can plant in-house malware disguised as foreign. People that can reverse engineer your TV, making it appear turned off, whilst it secretly records your conversations. And you doubt that they can turn a microwave into a recording device?

    HOW do "they" know the microwave they bugged is going to the person intended ?
    Or are you saying ALL microwaves have hidden camera in them ?
