The Late Show host Stephen Colbert ridiculed Kellyanne Conway Monday night after she had suggested earlier in the day that “microwaves that turn into cameras” could have been used to spy on U.S. President Donald Trump or the American citizenry.
Colbert then cut to a clip of the Senior White House advisor saying she doesn’t have any evidence to support Trump’s claim that Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the election.

“It’s true, it’s true, microwaves that turn into cameras. How do you think we film this show? Jim, show them Camera 3,” Colbert said as the camera panned to a microwave on a tripod.
Conway later clarified on CNN that she couldn’t be held accountable for the words that come out of her mouth because she’s not “Inspector Gadget” and isn’t in the business of “having evidence.”
Colbert joked about Conway’s surveillance claims, criticizing her for the “Inspector Gadget” comment.
“Okay, Inspector Gadget had all sorts of tools at his disposal: gadget skates, gadget ‘copter,” Colbert said, referencing the cartoon detective. “Kellyanne Conway has only one move: ‘Go, go, alternative facts!'”
Colbert also grabbed a Hot Pocket from the microwave and spoke to former U.S. President Obama through the appliance.
“President Obama,” he whispered, while looking into the microwave. “I miss you.”
Last week, the host couldn’t wait to talk about Trump’s early-morning tweets, which accused Obama of tapping his Trump Tower phones.
Colbert read the first several tweets during his monologue, saying, “And just like that, the White House had to reset their sign back to zero,” revealing a plaque that read ‘The president has worked 0 days without a Twitter freakout.’”

Colbert referenced Trump’s tweet, sent at 6:45 a.m.
“Who wakes up that angry?” Colbert asked. “That’s furious. Somebody give this guy a Xanax… or a bran muffin.”
“Or a bran muffin just stuffed with Xanax, like a ‘Branax,’ or something.”
