“We’re talking about a big agenda here,” Conway said. “I know it’s your show and you can talk about what you want, but there are 20 million people just last year who said no to Obamacare — 6.5 million of them paid a penalty.”

Savannah Guthrie cut her off: “The media did not bring up this topic. President Trump did.”

Which is precisely the point. If Conway didn’t realize that talking about surveillance through TVs and microwaves in the context of Trump Tower might be problematic when it comes to focusing on Trump’s agenda, she should have. And if she did mean to inject these things into the conversation — again, without any proof that they were actually used — that’s a pretty cynical move.
