Conway Mistakenly Cites Non-Existent ‘Bowling Green Massacre.’ Corrects It. Media Goes Nuts Anyway.

Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway made a gaffe on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews last night, citing the non-existent “Bowling Green Massacre.” She made the statement when questioned on President Trump’s controversial executive order that barred refugees from seven countries plagued with elevated levels of radical Islamic terrorism.

In light of the gaffe, Conway clarified that she intended to cite two Iraqi refugees arrested in Bowling Green, Kentucky attempting to sell weapons to Al Qaeda nearly six years ago.

Despite Conway’s correction, the media continued to mock her.

People make mistakes and they should be given the benefit of the doubt to correct the record. If the media scrutinized Obama for his “you didn’t build that” gaffe or Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” comment in the same manner they mocked Conway, then it would be par for the course. However, it only does such things when Republicans hold the power, shifting the mainstream media’s job from telling the objective truth and shilling for the Democratic Party.

It calls the question of why the media still ponders why Donald Trump won the election and whether it possesses a mirror.
