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’.
I was a student at BGSU when the Bowling Green Massacre didn’t happen. I’ll never be able to not forget what I didn’t see that day.?

“Bowling Green Massacre” is a made up distortion of this real tragedy, did not involve attacks or plans on US soil. https://t.co/3Od3Di9aQk

Donald Trump & the White House have now talked more about the fake Bowling Green Massacre than the bigot who murdered 6 Muslims this weekend

I though the Bowling Green Massacre was at the Corvette Museum when all those cars were swallowed by a sink hole

If you’re more conversant with the mythical “Bowling Green Massacre” than the Radical Christian Terrorism in Quebec, #YouMightBeAFoxWatcher.

Not sure how they’ll spin this one.
