CNN declined to welcome Conway onto the set of Jake Tapper’s “State of the Union” over the weekend. The reasons? Because Team Trump volunteered her instead of Vice President Mike Pence, but also because of “serious questions about her credibility,” according to the New York Times.
Kellyanne Conway responded to that story with this tweet:
But CNN was having none of that.False. I could do no live Sunday shows this week BC of family. Plus, I was invited onto CNN today & tomorrow. CNN Brass on those emails https://t.co/LVOUWIytLK— Kellyanne Conway (@KellyannePolls) February 6, 2017
Of course all of this started after Conway was caught lying about the now famous "Bowling Green Massacre.". @KellyannePolls was offered to SOTU on Sunday by the White House. We passed. Those are the facts.— CNN Communications (@CNNPR) February 6, 2017
Which Conway has repeatedly attempted to explain away as a simple one time misstatement.
However the Washington Post found that Conway had a history of telling that particular lie:
Kellyanne Conway thinks she took too much flak for citing a nonexistent “Bowling Green massacre” to justify President Trump's travel ban. She said she simply meant to say “Bowling Green terrorists,” and she later said, “I misspoke one word.”
Except now she doesn't appear to have misspoken at all; she seems to have believed that the Bowling Green massacre was a real thing.
How do we know? Because she cited the same nonexistent attack in separate interviews with two other outlets — Cosmopolitan magazine and TMZ.
While discussing why former president Barack Obama halted refugees from Iraq in 2011, Conway explained to Cosmo on Jan. 29: “He did that because two Iraqi nationals came to this country, joined ISIS, traveled back to the Middle East to get trained and refine their terrorism skills and come back here, and were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre of taking innocent soldiers' lives away.”
And she echoed those comments when interviewed by TMZ that same day, as the Daily Beast pointed out Monday afternoon.
“He did that because, I assume, there were two Iraqis who came here, got radicalized, joined ISIS, and then were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green attack on our brave soldiers,” she said.
Gee, no wonder CNN did not want her on their Sunday programs.
In fact at this point why would ANYBODY invite her on to tell her lies?
And while we are on the subject why would new outlets invite ANY of Donald Trump's people on to lie?
