Kellyanne Conway had a pretty rough Valentine's Day. First, she was interrupted mid-REM cycle to appear on The Today Show, where she was brutally taken to task by Matt Lauer on the subject of Flynn's resignation.
After the interview, in which Trump's top advisor appeared even shakier and flakier than usual, people began to speculate that she was about to get fired:
Then late last night, a tech CEO named William LeGate noticed that Donald Trump, the White House and the President's account were no longer following her on Twitter:
This does seem like a huge red flag.
LeGate then speculated how they would go about firing her:
(That would be an inconsiderate Valentine's Day gift, but Trump's administration aren't exactly known for their consideration of people's feelings.)
But THEN things got more interesting. It seems The Donald saw what was going down, and quickly put the rumors to rest by re-following Kellyanne:
And according to this Business Insider article from early February, it looks like he never followed her to begin with.
But at this point, rumors of the mass unfollowing had already spread through the internet like wildfire(d).
Us too, Scott Weinberg. Us too.
It looks to be just a rumor for now, so we may still be seeing Kellyanne around for at least a while longer. But if alt-facts aren't for you, you can tune into Morning Joe. Co-host Mika Brzezinski said today that Conway will be banned from the show for spewing
"alternative facts" lies.
At least she got fired from something, kind of.
