"I just thought we would have some fun with words," Conway told Fox News' Sean Hannity while holding signs with her favorite ones.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox News Wednesday night, bringing some signs along with her to explain her thoughts on Donald Trump Jr.'s connections to Russia.

.@KellyannePolls: "What's the conclusion? Collusion? No, we don't have that yet." #Hannity

Appearing on Fox News' Hannity show to address allegations surrounding Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer during the presidential campaign, Conway apparently wanted to be sure that views understood her point of view.

"I just want to review, in case you run out of time, this is how I see it so far. " Conway said, pulling out two sheets of paper. "This is to help all the people at home."

"What's the conclusion? Collusion? No we don't have that yet," she asked, holding up a sign that read "CONCLUSION? COLLUSION" and then crossing out the second word.

"I see illusion and delusion," Conway said, holding up the second sheet of paper, which, you guessed it, read "ILLUSION DELUSION."

"So just so we're clear everyone, four words: conclusion, collusion — no! Illusion, delusion — yes!" she concluded, adding, "I just thought we would have some fun with words."

Even as the segment was airing, the jokes had already begun.

It was almost too easy to turn it into a meme.

@yashar Where Kellyanne Conway failed with @TedCruz, she succeeded with @realDonaldTrump. Yet regrets persist. Sad.… https://t.co/6xZdUPOzcO

Memes on memes.

Although some weren't exactly funny.

At least she's being honest, people joked.

Finally some honesty from Kellyanne Conway

The Love Actually comparisons were inevitable.

Hannity on the other side while Kellyanne holds up her paper:

And obviously someone made a joke about everyone's favorite nonexistent terrorist attack.

Perhaps Conway was inspired by Bob Dylan?

This Snapchat hot dog filter also had a moment.

So did Twin Peaks.

#Kellyanne #TwinPeaks Kellyanne is Killer Bob!

People had their own signs for Conway.

@BraddJaffy Me, to Kellyanne Conway, always:

Within hours, Conway had tweeted her own response — although it wasn't totally clear she got the joke.
