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.

Ex-White House aide describes Trump’s abusive tantrums when he doesn’t get his way: ‘Not normal at all’
Appearing on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, former Donald Trump advisor Omarosa Manigault Newman backed up assertions in the book " A Very Stable Genius" that the president is prone to tantrums when he doesn't get his way and becomes abusive to staffers and cabinet members alike.
Speaking with host Alex Witt, Omarosa -- who wrote an insider's account of life in the White House after she was unceremoniously fired -- said there was little in the new book that surprised her.
Digging into her Oval Office days, the former adviser and longtime Trump associate described the president's "zero to 200" screaming jags when displeased.
Ex-Bush aide admits GOP would have removed Obama if he did ‘one tenth of what Trump has done’
A former strategist for former President George W. Bush accused Republican lawmakers of hypocrisy on Sunday for for failing to honestly consider the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
Matthew Dowd, a campaign strategist-turned-media-analyst, made the remarks in a tweet on Sunday.
"Deep in their hearts the Republicans in Congress know that if Obama had done one tenth of what President Trump has done they would have voted to impeach and convict him," Dowd wrote. "And Fox News would have been cheering them on. And Trump would have been pushing for it from the sidelines."

‘Opportunistic’ Trump has an ulterior motive for hyping Virginia gun rally on MLK day: MSNBC guest
During a panel discussion on MSNBC's "AM Joy," the Reverend Mark Thompson claimed that President Donald Trump is sending a message to his rabid base by hyping up a pro-gun rally in Virginia on Martin Luther King Day.
Addressing the rally to be held in Richmond, which has the entire state on edge and forced lawmakers to ban weapons at the event in the name of safety, Thompson told host Joy Reid it was accident that the president linked the rally to a day when Americans celebrate the life of the civil rights leader who was gunned down in 1968 in Memphis.
Asked about Trump's tweets about the rally, the reverend called them disgraceful.
