Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway is still facing ridicule for her promotion of the fictitious “Bowling Green massacre” as a justification for President Donald Trump’s travel ban on seven Muslim-majority countries.
The crew from The View has some fun at Conway’s expense on Friday, and mocked her for once again saying something that has no basis in reality.
“To be clear, this is another alt-fact,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said of the nonexistent massacre mentioned by Conway on MSNBC on Thursday night.
Goldberg then went on to explain that the Obama administration, after discovering that two al Qaeda supporters posing as refugees managed to enter the United States, tightened up vetting requirements for people coming over from Iraq.
“An Iraqi citizen has not come to this country and done jack-poo for many, many, many years,” she explained.
Co-host Sunny Hostin also took issue with Conway’s comparison of Obama’s 2011 actions regarding the Iraqi refugee program and what the Trump administration enacted last week.
“He did not have a ban,” she emphasized. “What he did was, he made the vetting process more robust. And some people would say that the United States has the most robust vetting process for people coming in, in fact it’s a two-year process.”
“You know, they need to have a Fake History Month, like you have with African-American History Month,” joked co-host Joy Behar.
“Every day is a Fake History Month,” replied Goldberg.

Giggling Fox & Friends hosts gloat over Lewandowski hearing: ‘He gave as good as he got!’
The hosts of "Fox & Friends" giggled and gloated over Corey Lewandowski's contentious appearance before the House Judiciary Committee.
President Donald Trump's former campaign manager claimed executive privilege over testimony he gave before special counsel Robert Mueller, admitted he had lied in TV appearances and cracked jokes during five hours of testimony -- and the Fox News hosts were delighted.
"He gave as good as he got," said co-host Steve Doocy.
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt was laughing so hard she could barely speak.
"She said the truth shall set you free," Earhardt said, quoting Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) through guffaws. "'Answer the question,' there was no question."
Saudi Arabia to announce oil attacks findings as US weighs retaliation
Saudi Arabia said it will unveil the results later Wednesday of its probe into attacks on key oil installations, as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo heads to the kingdom to discuss possible retaliation.
Riyadh, which is bogged down in a five-year war against Tehran-aligned rebels in neighbouring Yemen, has said that the weapons used were Iranian-made, but has not directly blamed its arch rival.
However, the Saudi defence ministry said its spokesman would present evidence from the site of the weekend attacks that halved Saudi oil production, sending global energy markets into a tailspin.
‘Heartless and unconscionable’: Outrage as General Motors cuts off healthcare for 50,000 striking workers
"It is cruel and outrageous that GM has cut off the healthcare benefits from their employees in a blatant attempt to force the union into submission," said Sen. Bernie Sanders.
In a move critics said exposes both the particular cruelty of General Motors executives and the systemic inhumanity of the American healthcare system, GM on Tuesday stopped covering health insurance premiums for the nearly 50,000 auto workers striking for fair wages and decent benefits.
