White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Tuesday that senior Trump aide Kellyanne Conway’s remark that microwaves can be used to conduct surveillance was made “in jest.” “I think there’s pretty sound evidence that the microwave is not a sound way of surveilling someone,” Spicer told reporters during the daily briefing. “I think that has been cleaned up. It was made in a jest. So I think we can put that to rest,” he added of the comment, while maintaining that the president believes that surveillance was conducted during the 2016 election. The question came following an interview published in a New Jersey newspaper in which Conway mentioned “microwaves that turn into cameras” when discussing surveillance methods.
