Conway resurfaced in the wake of Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, sparring with Anderson Cooper on CNN Tuesday night, and Cuomo Wednesday morning. "I think not", Conway said during her appearance on "Fox and Friends".

She continued, "Could you imagine. having a male anchor on the network roll eyes at Hillary Clinton, at somebody - a female representative spokeswoman for President Obama or President Bill Clinton?".

"The idea that you think that this was about Russian Federation and not about a FBI director who just yesterday forced his bureau to correct sworn testimony to the Senate Judicial Committee, where he said Huma Abedin had this practice, she had forwarded quote 'hundreds of thousands of emails, '" she said.

Cooper brought Conway on his show to discuss President Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey.

"All of a sudden the White House is concerned about James Comey's handling of Hillary Clinton's emails?" asked the host, in reference to the fact that Comey was purportedly fired over the matter, even after Trump praised the Federal Bureau of Investigation head's actions on the campaign trail. "That was fun", Conway answered with a wink, accusing Cooper of "conflating two things that don't belong together".

"Thanks for the trip down memory lane".

CNN's Anderson Cooper, host of "Anderson Cooper 360°", raised such concerns to senior adviser Kellyanne Conway some hours after the decision.

Cooper responded with a dramatic eye roll, asking if the public is now supposed to ignore Trump's comments that he made during the campaign trail. She then turned Cooper's valid criticism into a moment to brag, once more, about Trump's election win.

Conway, who coined the term "alternative facts" was earlier this year laughed at in an interview by an audience, after attacking people who lie on TV - exactly the thing she has been accused of doing.

"I don't know who had access to my account", she said.

Watch the entire interview below and tell me that you didn't miss this.

"I denounce whoever it is".

Conway tried to turn a conversation about Trump's hypocrisy into a celebration of his campaign's success in MI.

And she certainly doesn't want to go viral.

But Ms Conway said in the interview it "has nothing to do with Russia".
