People Thought Donald Trump Unfollowed Kellyanne Conway And Things Got Out Of Hand

On Tuesday, shortly after what must have been Kellyanne Conway's worst interview yet on the Today Show, and only hours later seeing her thank and retweeting a white nationalist, public speculation that Conway would be the next member of Trump's administration to either be fired or resign seemed like a pretty good bet.

As the rumor mill started churning, people started noticing that Kellyanne was no longer being followed by Trump, thinking that Trump essentially announced that he was going to fire her over Twitter.

Many have already likened the Trump presidency to another reality TV show, complete with its twists and fan favorites being voted off the island every few days, which is why this was so believable, but the reality of the situation is that none of the accounts ever followed Conway to begin with.

Trump has followed the same number of people for years, with that number fluctuating on occasion, including that time in January where he followed @EmergencyKittens, an account dedicated to flooding the internet with pictures of cute kittens, for a limited amount of time.

At no point in time was it documented that Trump followed Conway's account, with someone pointing out just that a few weeks after the elections.

But the damage was done. The rumor mill churned out its alternative facts and soon even those with verified accounts were tweeting the news to the masses.

Later in the day, both Trump and the POTUS Twitter accounts followed Conway, presumably to put and end to the rumors that she was next on the chopping block.

Kellyanne Conway Makes Up 'Bowling Green Massacre' And Twitter Can't Stop Roasting Her

Kellyanne Conway has become somewhat of a running joke/horrifying reality check after she went live on air and tried to convince America that “alternative facts” actually exist.

Yes, that’s right, the woman went on TV and as a representative of our current Presidential organization argued that the very fabric of reality as we know it is absolutely subjective. Now I just want to state on the record that if “alternative facts” actually do catch on, I want to explain to my bank that I wasn’t overdrawn, because in my alternative fact reality I’m a millionaire.

Let’s just cut to the chase: alternative facts are lies. If someone tells you that the brownies in front of you are actually grilled chicken breast, that’s not an alternative fact, that’s a lie. If you run over someone in the middle of the road and you say you didn’t, but you totally did, that’s a lie.

Conway dished out her latest lie on MSNBC, where she flat-out fabricated a story about an attack on US soil to support Trump’s refugee ban.

Trump supporters then immediately started saying that Trump’s refugee ban was being unfairly criticized, as Obama did the same thing in 2011 as per Conway’s lie. However, Obama’s refugee slowdown is vastly different than Trump’s ban, and the two men who Conway wrongly said killed people on US soil are now serving life sentences in a federal prison after they were caught trying to send money and weapons to Al-Qaeda.

Twitter obviously began roasting Conway for blatantly lying to Chris Matthews’ face about the whole Bowling Green ‘Massacre’.

Not sure how they’ll spin this one.
