Liar Lies About Non-Existent "Massacre"

White (supremacist) House liar-for-hire Kellyanne "Orwellyanne" Conway was interviewed yesterday on Chris "Tweety" Matthews' program and, in trying to defend bigot Donald "Rump" Trump's refugee ban, uncorked a couple of alternative facts lies which an unprepared Tweety failed to question. The moron's most egregious lie was her claim that two Iraqi refugees who had entered the U.S. legally conducted a "massacre" in Bowling Green, KY in 2011, something that never happened. Two Iraqi men were arrested by the FBI there for planning to purchase and ship arms to al Qaeda in Iraq, not a domestic terror attack. They are now serving life sentences. She went on to state that "most people don't know that because it didn't get covered." The media doesn't cover landings of space ships from Neptune either.

Orwellyanne's other alternative fact lie was that President Obama ("we screwed up, but blame him!") imposed a six-month ban on refugees in 2011, a statement which has been debunked. Obama ordered a slowdown on the processing of refugees from Iraq after the Bowling Green arrests, not a ban.

They will lie and lie, then wake up the next day and lie again.

Here are some of our favorite Twitter reactions (more here):

BONUS:  Laura Clawson on why this shouldn't (but probably will) happen again with Conway.

BONUS II:  Go here to "contribute" to "The Bowling Green Massacre Victims Fund."  #NeverRemember!

Every news outlet should call it and her and Trumper liars every time they do so but they won't of course!

They say it and their minions believe with no changing any minds.

The media is our way out but they are them.

It's appalling, but not surprising, that when she and other Trumpers are interviewed that the interviewer isn't prepared to question the bald faced lies. By the time these outlets (might) get around to making a correction, the damage has been done. The Trumpers know this and know they'll be invited back to lie with impunity. Thanks for the comment, One Fly.
