Kellyanne Conway’s ‘collusion’ rhymes stir mockery, confusion

Maybe she’s a Bob Dylan fan.

Presidential spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway used cue cards during a television appearance Wednesday to make her case that her boss did not collude with the Russians to win the election.

“In case you run out of time, this is how I see it so far,” Conway said as she reached for two flash cards at the end of her appearance on Fox News’ Hannity.

“This is to help all the people at home,” she continued. “What’s the conclusion? Collusion? No. We don’t have that yet. I see illusion and delusion.”

She then wrote over the word “collusion” with a red marker.

“So just so we’re clear, everyone, four words,” she said. “Collusion, no. Illusion, delusion, yes,” she said. “I just thought we’d have some fun with words. A Sesame (Street) Grover’s word of the day, perhaps, Sean.”

Some on social media compared the cue card caper to a scene in the British rom-com Love Actually. In the scene, Andrew Lincoln’s character covertly professes his love to Keira Knightley’s recently married character.

Conway’s use of notes was also reminiscent of Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues” video.
