Kellyanne Conway held up bizarre signs to defend Donald Trump - and a meme was born

Fox News/Screengrab

If you haven't been following the news, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted proof on Tuesday that he met a Kremlin-connected lawyer on the pretext that the meeting would provide 'incriminating' information on Hillary Clinton.

In taking the meeting on these grounds,it's possible he may have broken statutes 52 U.S.C. 30121,36 U.S.C. 510, which dictate:

A foreign national shall not, directly or indirectly, make a contribution or a donation of money or other thing of value, or expressly or impliedly promise to make a contribution or a donation, in connection with any Federal, State, or local election.


No person shall knowingly solicit, accept, or receive from a foreign national any contribution or donation prohibited by [this law].

The New York Times report that Donald Trump Jr tweeted the exchange only when he was contacted by the paper for comment on the story about the contents of said emails. The emails themselves contained explicit proof that he was keen to hear about details concerning Hillary Clinton from the Kremlin-connected lawyer:

The alt-right media are now calling this transparency on Donald Trump Jr's part - others would call it a last ditch PR move.

The White House has been under increased scrutiny since the emails were released, and legal experts have said that Trump Jr committed a federal crime.

Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox News to deny collusion with Russia (forced to drop the previous denial any such meetings took place), and did her very best to insult the intelligence of the audience by using flashcards.

She literally said, before producing flashcards with only four words on them:

This is to help the people at home.

If you still believe the Trump White House - that is exactly how low Kellyanne Conway thinks the bar is for you.

Holding white sheets of paper up to the camera is a watertight strategy, as we all know:

Never change, Kellyanne.
