"The president is very confounded that this person is always able to divert the spotlight to him", Conway said told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on the morning after his exclusive interview with Comey.
Conway went on to say that Comey "struggled to answer basic questions", that he's giving "a revisionist version of history", (and, of course that Trump "hardly knew the man").
Conway's remarks followed Comey's interview with ABC's Stephanopoulos, in which the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director delivered a scathing rebuke of Trump and his administration, and encouraged voters to vote Trump out of office.
Conway, who appeared on "GMA" in the wake of the airing of Comey's exclusive interview with Stephanopoulos on Sunday night, was apparently referring to Comey's comments about his decision to announce in a letter to Congress the reopening of the Clinton email probe on October 28, 2016, 11 days before the November 8 election. The interview highlighted the April 17 release of Comey's book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership. On Sunday, Comey said he felt that sending the letter was the right thing to do. Conway herself suggested that Clinton didn't campaign enough or "connect with the people".
The campaign and Conway also said that Trump's strong stance on "jobs and the economy, health care and education, terrorism, immigration, national security" brought him to victory in 2016.
As director of the FBI, James Comey was in office from January 20, 2017, to May 9, 2017.
Trump, meanwhile, tweeted a slew of insults at Comey, whom he fired in May.
