Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, is putting the heat on Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for not tweeting about the Easter massacre in Sri Lanka.
During an interview on Monday night with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Kellyanne said Ocasio-Cortez flat out lied when trying to cover for why she did not tweet about the attack.
“I usually leave Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and some of these other freshmen like [Congresswomen] Ilhan Omar, [Rashida] Tlaib alone because basically when they speak, it’s a gift to conservatives and to the Republican Party,” Conway said as BizPac Review reports.
Ocasio-Cortez was very vocal following the New Zealand mosque shooting but did not tweet at all regarding the attack where hundreds of Christians were killed as they worshipped Jesus Christ’s resurrection.
Conway proceeded: “But I really had to call her out here because I am on television shows, and I’m asked constantly, ‘Why didn’t Donald Trump say this, why did he use that word? Where is the semi-colon in this tweet where I believe it should be.’ And I said hey, does anybody ask Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who you give a hero’s welcome to—all you fangirls—ever bother to ask her why she’s been completely silent on the massacre against Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday?”
As BizPac Review reports, the freshman Democrat attested her silence on being “away from tech” while she was visiting Puerto Rico. She went on to describe that she, herself, was a victim as she alleged Conway was trying to “stoke suspicion around” her Christianity.
Conway said no one should accept that excuse as matter of fact because Ocasio-Cortez was able to tweet the very next day after the Easter massacre about her own Netflix documentary.
“The very next day, they’re still picking through the rubble in Sri Lanka, looking for survivors or of the deceased — she had time to tweet about her Netflix documentary about her,” Conway told Hannity.
Conway clarified that she was not seeking to question the Democratic congresswoman’s faith: “It’s not about her faith, it’s about her selectivity.”
On April 22, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “Before my primary, three women & I agreed to film our journey of trying to run for office without big money. Now, #KnockDownTheHouse hits Netflix & select theaters next week, May 1st.”
