Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox & Friends for a clean up job amidst James Comey’s bombshell remarks surrounding President Donald Trump’s alleged “golden showers” encounter with Russian prostitutes.

Conway went on to actually praise Stephanopoulos for asking “the right questions” of Comey, when he pressed him on why he didn’t alert Trump that the Steele dossier — the one which alleges Russia has compromising videos of Trump engaged in pee-play with Russian prostitutes — was funded by his political opponents.
Fox & Friends next played a clip of Comey asking “what kind of marriage” the president has with wife Melania, given the impression he got from Trump that she might believe the salacious allegations.
“He’s a psychoanalyst, he’s giving advice on people look, he’s a marriage counselor,” Conway said sarcastically. “I find that particular excerpt to be really egregious and over the top and unacceptable.”
“Frankly put, that’s none of his business,” she added.
Later in the interview, Conway said the president might respond to Comey at some point — and Steve Doocy quipped, “Standby for tweets.”
Lo and behold, some 30 minutes later, the tweets came in hot and steaming:
James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH. He is a weak and…..
