Kellyanne Conway Is Very Comfortable Making Up "Alternative Facts" On Her Own Now

Submitted by: thezigrat 9 months ago in News & Politics


Trump's senior adviser Kellyanne Conway got caught blaming two Iraqis for a made-up terrorist attack in Kentucky -- she calls it the Bowling Green Massacre.

This is how she described in an interview with MSNBC's Chris Matthews...

"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. It didn't get covered."

The Bowling Green massacre didn't get covered because there's no such thing as the Bowling Green massacre -- the FBI confirms it. Also, Obama didn't ban the Iraqi refugee program.

But according to Conway, it may be the biggest terror attack since 9/11. Maybe the Bowling Green massacre is one of those never-reported terrorist incidents pushed aside by the that Trump likes to bring up.

This wasn't the first time Conway cited the "Bowling Green Massacre" -- she's carted it out before. She got a lot of heat over the weekend for what she's calling a mistake ("I misspoke one word."), except she's mentioned the Bowling Green terrorist attack before.

She mentioned it once to "Cosmopolitan" magazine in 2011, and then again in an interview on January 29, 2017. My guess is that she told herself, and others, the Bowling Green lie so much (and never got called out on it), she started using it as fact to back up her flimsy case. Additional w/b: fancylad

I do soooo want to tweet the twit in chief and ask him how many people died in the Bowling Green Massacre that Ann Conway mentioned several times and see if he admits that it is a lie or if he gives an actual number of killed; which is a lie

thezigrat  You mean the people that were killed in Iran in the ten or more attacks that they say they were part of. or just the ones that may have been killed by the weapons that they were trying to send.

This administration says easily checkable lies yet no one on their side calls them out. I don't understand how this is acceptable. Even if I am on your side I'm going to call you out if you're lying to me.

trimble This is not just the same old shit, It is blatant proof that the Trump administration does NOT believe in facts while discrediting the news as fake and discredits the Legislative Branch as illegitimate.  IT IS THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION THAT IS LYING TO US, NOT THE NEWS!

Ya you're right no one was attacked in the U.S. They were only attacked in Iraq and then they tried to send weapons and how to instructions to the enemy. And they were from Bowling Green  And Obama didn't stop immigration he Paused it so he could check vetting methods, slowed down visa approvals significantly. So he only let in a few instead of all, the only difference is that Trump Paused and didn't let any one in. Ya she is a lying bitch.

For a long time I've suspected that this is the major reason why the U.S. interferes so much overseas. (Both Obama and Bush are guilty as well as their predecessors) I think that they mess with countries overseas so that a majority of the attacks are on foreign soil instead of U.S. soil, and that also creates more fear and hatred that they can use to push their own agendas.

I've always wanted the U.S. to dramatically reduce its foreign military presence and only provide humanitarian aid to foreign countries. How to do that without bringing the fight to our soil? I don't really know...

bliznik   You have to also add how to keep some nut from taking over large areas of land and causing a problem all over the world. There was very little problems in the Communist countries run by the USSR because any trouble was squashed. After the USSR collapsed war and discontent ruled the former states  If one of then had gotten a hand on a nuclear weapon things could be completely different today. It cant be denied that some power brokers in the middle east today are preaching a Muslim world. Iran specifically.

Today in an interview the Trump was stating that there are terror attacks happening All over Europe all the time and the US News is  not covering  them intentionally. Sound familiar? Trump's new answer to fact checking alternative facts "It was not reported intentionally"
