Kellyanne Conway pushed back against "fake news" this morning after numerous reports quoted her as having accused former President Obama of spying on Trump Tower using microwaves. 

During an interview with the Bergen Record, the senior counselor to President Trump was asked simply whether she knows that Trump Tower was wiretapped.

She answered:

"There are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately," Conway said. “There was an article this week that talked about how you can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways. And microwaves that turn into cameras, etc. So we know that that is just a fact of modern life."

Conway said President Trump wants an investigation into the surveillance to be conducted as part of the House and Senate probes into Russian interference in the election.

Conway later clarified that her remarks about the president and wiretapping were intended only as general comments about surveillance.

Despite that, social media users quickly jumped on Conway's comments:
