It took less than 48 hours for the Trump administration to completely dishonor the memory of the 11 people killed by a shooter who opened fire Saturday at the Tree Of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh.
Appearing on President Donald Trump’s favorite brainless TV show, “Fox & Friends,” White House counselor Kellyanne Conway whined that the real victims of the recent spate of bomb threats and shootings at places of worship are the people who work in the White House:
“The kind of rhetoric that is said day in and day out about this White House, the people who work here, the President, the Vice President, their families – it’s got to stop.
“You’ve got people constantly making comments about Nazism, Nazi Germany, somebody from CNN tweeted out a picture of concentration camps when the migrants were trying to come over the border. That’s got to stop!”
CONWAY argues the real victims are White House staffers like her: “The kind of rhetoric that is said day in and day out about this WH, the people who work here, the president, the VP, their families – it’s got to stop… In this case the president is leading the country to heal.” pic.twitter.com/oUuDfgdPUn

Conway conveniently neglected to mention that Trump proudly declared himself to be a “nationalist” just last week, the very same label that Adolf Hitler embraced in the 1930s.
Later in the interview, Conway falsely asserted that Trump is trying to unify the country, even he again referred to the media as the “enemy of the people” yet again on Twitter Monday morning:
“The president is leading the country to heal
“Cut it out. And listen carefully – because everybody else is listening.”
It didn’t take long for social media users to declare a Bullshit Warning in response to Conway:
Another @KellyannePolls legitimate RAPE of the facts. The White House North Lawn will be great this Spring thanks to a new layer of bullshit tossed over it by this POS.

I saw the video of the “president “ making his statement long after I read his words. He looked and sounded bored and disinterested.
He has no interest in healing

Once again, this administration plays the victim card as Americans die thanks to their hateful rhetoric. It’s beyond disgusting.
