Late Night: Inspector Gadget Responds to Kellyanne Conway's Shout-Out

Take note, President Trump: Inspector Gadget does not want to be dragged into your wiretapping kerfuffle.

The cartoon detective broke his silence on Late Night With Seth Meyers Monday night, following statements made by presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway that she is “not Inspector Gadget” and doesn’t really believe that “people are using the microwave to spy on the Trump campaign” — despite earlier remarks that the kitchen appliance could somehow be used for surveillance.

“And when Inspector Gadget heard that, he said, ‘Even I think you’re crazy, and my hat turns into a helicopter,'” Meyers relayed to the audience during a new “Closer Look” segment. (Ryan Murphy, we’ve got your next season of Feud right here.)

After tackling President Trump’s unproven wiretapping claims (which allege that President Obama tapped Trump Tower’s phones during the 2016 election), Meyers turned to the Republicans’ newly released health care plan, which he called “the same old failed GOP policies that Trump claimed to be against.”

Watch the latest “Closer Look” in full above, then hit the comments with all of your thoughts — Inspector Gadget-related and otherwise.

    Okay, I am admittedly no fan of the Trump administration, BUT her claim about microwaves is not THAT far-fetched. Any wifi-enabled appliance or device can be hacked and used for spying, particularly voice-activated ones. So, her argument really depends on just how fancy Trump’s kitchen is.

      How would hacking his kitchen have produced any information? You don’t seriously believe he’s ever in there preparing his own food, do you?

    • Joey says:

      I’m sure he doesn’t require wifi for all of his appliances, merely that they be made out of gold.

      We feel like you sound like you’re defending her, so we hate you. As a liberal, it’s my job to hate anyone different from me!

    According to Spain’s Photovoltaic Union (UNEF), the new law requires self-consumption PV system owners to pay the same grid fees that all electricity consumers in Spain pay, plus a so-called ‘sun tax’. Specifically, said UNEF, a self-consumption PV owner “will pay a ‘sun tax’ for the whole power [capacity] installed (the power that you contracted to your electricity company, plus the power from your PV installation) and also another [second] ‘sun tax’ for the electricity that you generate and self-consume from your own PV installation (this applies to installations larger than 10 kW).”

      Agreed! Part of why I finally broke down and got a DVR was so I could record him and watch him at a better time than 12:30!
