Kellyanne Conway attempted to explain a statement she made in an interview Thursday on MSNBC, tweeting this morning that she meant to say “Bowling Green terrorists” instead of “Bowling Green massacre.”
ON CHRIS MATTHEWS
While speaking Thursday night with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, Conway referenced the “Bowling Green Massacre” while discussing a ban the Obama administration applied in 2011 that is similar to Trump’s recently-signed executive order temporarily halting immigration from seven Muslim-majority nations.
6 MONTH BAN
“I bet it’s brand-new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre,” Conway told Matthews. “”Most people don’t know that because it didn’t get covered.”
Matthews did not asked for further information on this so called massacre, but his viewers didn’t miss a beat. Following the primetime interview, the Twittersphere lit up with comments poking fun at Conway and the apparently fictional “massacre.”
There is no documented event referred to as “The Bowling Green Massacre.” Some social media users jokingly suggested that Conway was confused with the haunted house attraction in Bowling Green, Kentucky, called “The Massacre Haunted House.”
The only connection Bowling Green has with anything terror- or refugee-related, pertains to a 2013 ABC News report about two Iraqi refugees who plotted to attack Americans, and who later admitted in court to attacking U.S. soldiers in Iraq. They lived in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Federal officials told ABC News as a result of the Bowling Green case, the State Department did not process Iraqi refugees for six months in 2011.
ANYONE IN WHITE HOUSE
Personally I am not wondering what the hell is she talking about – what has me worried is does anyone in the White House has any idea what they are talking about? Trump certainly doesn’t and the Press Person Spicer usually leaves with everyone having more questions than answers.
I cannot believe that we are the smartest country in the world and we elected this idiot administration. And one more thing, could some tell the President that he needs to find another word to use instead of “amazing”. Yesterday he used “amazing” 3 times in one sentence.
From today forward I am going to try really hard to find other interesting items to write about – I am certain I will loose the numbers I have been getting on my blog but I don’t care anymore. There are other interesting things to post about beside our new “amazing” President.
