It's a general rule of the Internet: When a public figure holds up a piece of paper with a message, there will be memes. Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, has just given the internet just that. On Fox News on Wednesday, she held up two pieces of paper in an attempt to defend Donald Trump, Jr. against critics who believe his pre-election meeting with a Russian lawyer is proof the Trump campaign attempted to collude with the Kremlin. The key word here is collusion, which seemed to be the basis for Conway's rhyming game.
"Just so we're clear, everyone, four words—conclusion, collusion. No. Illusion, delusion? Yes."
Conway's attempted dismissal of the Trump controversy turned out to be nothing more than an awkward 20 seconds of rhyming words on flashcards. It did absolutely nothing to teach us more about Don Jr.'s behavior or the purpose behind his actions and ultimately ended up confusing viewers even more.
Anyone with a basic understanding of Photoshop was instantly given the opportunity to make Conway appear to say whatever they wanted—and they definitely took advantage of it. Here are some of the best tweets under #KellysCards to come out of Conway's internet faux pas.
