When Trump was asked about what he thought of Obama’s choice to punish Moscow for meddling in US affairs, Trump’s response:
‘It’s time for our country to move on to bigger and better things. Nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, I will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation.’
Trump’s seem to not care about foreign espionage.
Kellyanne Conway accused President Obama of attempting to “box-in President-elect Trump”. She then said what is perhaps the dumbest thing she has said.
‘Ever since then the issue of Russian hacking has been discussed in context of the election. And that is where the president is saying we should move on. And we should move on because the idea that there is a nexus between the hacking and the election result.’
CNN’s Kate Bolduan was disturbed by Conway’s comments and told her very directly that the media was attempting to do no such thing. Conway, predictably, disagreed, and then Bolduan gave her the most epic wake-up call.
‘This is serious. This is about a foreign country hacking into the United States electoral process. Regardless, it doesn’t even have to do with the result, even. It is more that they tried to and did.’
