Anderson Cooper Gave Kellyanne Conway This Brutal Eye Roll After Failing To Spin Comey Firing

CNN

Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, was on full damage control duty on Anderson Cooper 360 on Tuesday after news broke that Trump had fired FBI Director James Comey.

President Trump claimed on Tuesday that it was Comey’s handling of the reopening of an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails that led to his firing, but that is the very thing Trump praised Comey for on the campaign trail.

Mashable adds:

After playing Conway a bunch of clips of Trump praising Comey on the campaign trail, Cooper pointed out that firing him seemed like a contradictory move, and one shrouded in controversy as Comey was leading an investigation into the Trump campaign’s connections to Russia.

Conway used the opportunity to pat herself on the back for her campaign maneuvering, and Cooper was having none of it, throwing back an eye roll that will be used as a reaction GIF for years to come.
