Last night, senior adviser Kellyanne Conway went on CNN to decry the sentiment that President Donald Trump is obsessed with Hillary Clinton. There was just one problem.
Kellyanne Conway claimed "nobody here talks about Hillary Clinton" despite the fact that President Trump mentioned her at least 3 times earlier today #CuomoPrimeTime https://t.co/sGNQfZyNRt

While Conway was calling Clinton’s policies “unattractive” and saying people couldn’t get over the election, Cuomo joked that she couldn’t stop mentioning her name, to which Conway said “We don’t care about [Hillary Clinton], no one here talks about her,” referring to the Trump White House.
But earlier that day, in a press conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Trump brought up Clinton in reference to the news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller might want to speak with the president.
“When you talk about interviews, Hillary Clinton had an interview where she wasn’t sworn in, she wasn’t given the oath, they didn’t take notes, they didn’t record and it was done on the Fourth of July weekend. That’s, perhaps, ridiculous, and a lot of people looked upon that as being a very serious breach,” Trump said.
He also mentioned her when talking about how Clinton was likely the preferred candidate of Russian President Vladimir Putin, as opposed to Trump, because of her energy and military policies: “I am for massive oil and gas and everything else and a lot of energy. Putin can’t love that. I am for the strongest military that the United States ever had. Putin can’t love that. Hillary was not for a strong military.”
But if that wasn’t enough, Trump brought her up again this morning on Twitter. Twice in one tweet.
Disproven and paid for by Democrats “Dossier used to spy on Trump Campaign. Did FBI use Intel tool to influence the Election?” @foxandfriends Did Dems or Clinton also pay Russians? Where are hidden and smashed DNC servers? Where are Crooked Hillary Emails? What a mess!

Trump has tweeted over 70 times about Clinton since defeating her in November 2016, according to the Washington Post.
