The latest surreal development in our national nightmare came last night via Kellyanne Conway, who—barely ten days after coining the phrase "alternative facts"—is now just fully making up terrorist attacks. Remember the horrifying "Bowling Green Massacre"? No, you don't, because it never happened.
"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 said during an interview with MSNBC's Chris Matthews. "Most people don't know that because it didn't get covered." It's weird how events that aren't happening seldom get covered.
Chelsea Clinton is as done with this nonsense as the rest of us, and hit out at Conway's lie in a tweet that simultaneously acknowledged the actual knife attack that took place at the Louvre this morning.
"Very grateful no one seriously hurt in the Louvre attack ...or the (completely fake) Bowling Green Massacre," Clinton wrote. "Please don't make up attacks."
Doesn't seem like too much to ask from the staff of the highest office in the land.
