Counselor to President Donald Trump Kellyanne Conway criticized some on the left for immediately politicizing the deadly church shooting in Texas.
At least 26 people were killed and approximately 20 more were wounded after a gunman opened fire at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs on Sunday.
In the wake of the attack, many Democrat lawmakers and Hollywood celebrities called for gun control.
Los Angeles based television personality Chelsea Handler who wrote, “Innocent people go to church on Sunday to honor their God, and while doing so, get shot in killed. What country? America. Why? Republicans.”
Ms. Conway replied to that Tweet in the exact manner that would please Fox & Friends viewers:
I won’t even dignify it I’m sorry that we even have to show her Twitter comments because it’s so beyond any type of reasonable response that anyone should have. Why people see politics immediately. It’s just like I said in Las Vegas over a month ago. You had families literally still looking for their loved ones through the rubble in remains in Las Vegas, running from hospital to hospital.
There were people who were were injured who then went on to pass away . And yet people are taking to Twitter in the comfort of their very luxurious lives pointing fingers. As far as can I tell, never really help in between the tweet storms. Never really help charities. Never help people to heal. Never try to reach across for understanding.
What Conway seems to be saying is that it’s really awful for these “people” (aka her political foes) go to a political position so early after such a tragedy, but (while I have you), these same people never really help with charities, help people heal or “never try to reach across for understanding.”
In other words, do as I say, not as I do.
Conway then finished this portion of the interview by expressing how happy she is “President Trump is our commander-in-chief and our leader in this nation because, unfortunately, every president has to help heal the nations at different times, different tragedies.”
