Kellyanne Conway uses 'Sesame Street'-style flashcards during interview

Kellyanne Conway's use of props on 'Hannity' didn't go over well on Twitter

Amid mounting national concern about Russian tampering with the United States voting process, the White House counselor infantalized the American public - and evaded the interview - by using flashcards.

The interview, which aired on Fox's The Sean Hannity Show last night, saw Ms Conway praise an earlier interview with Donald Trump Jnr, calling it a "refreshing" show of transparency. "Collusion, no. Illusion, delusion, yes", she added.

"This is to help all the people at home", Conway said, holding up the first sheet of paper. "Collusion? No. We don't have that yet", she said, crossing out the word with a red pen.

Hannity replies with a joke, offering to buy Ms Conway a white board.

"I see illusion and delusion", she declared, raising another flashcard for the camera.

"So just so we're clear, everyone, four words. Conclusion, collusion, no. Illusion, delusion, yes".

Social media users also had a lot of fun with words and photoshop, changing the words on Conway's cards to KFC Chicken and 'Covfefe', a term recently coined by the president.

The cards, she said, were like Sesame Street's "Word of the Day", a reference to the children's TV show which features a segment in which Elmo and occasionally other muppets, such as the hapless Grover, explain the meaning of words such as vote, stumble and canteen.

Conway's defense comes shortly after Mr. Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., released an email chain with a Russian-connected publicist in which Trump Jr. appears to welcome efforts from the Russian government to support his father's campaign with information damaging to Hillary Clinton.
