Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday urged Fox News viewers to read the New Zealand mosque shooter’s hateful manifesto on the grounds that doing so would make them realize his deadly attack had nothing to do with President Donald Trump.
Appearing on “Fox & Friends,” Conway dismissed the fact that the New Zealand killer had cited Trump as an inspirational “a symbol of white identity” in his manifesto, which also talked about Muslim immigrants “invading” majority white countries.
“He put out a 70-page manifesto, and I guess everybody scoured it and searched for Donald Trump’s name, and there it is one time,” she said. “But he also said he aligns closely with the ideology of China, he’s not a conservative, he’s not a Nazi, I think he referred to himself as an ‘eco-naturalist’ or ‘eco-fascist.’ People should read [the manifesto] in its entirety.”
Trump condemned the mass shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand last week, although he followed up this condemnation by echoing the killer’s talking points about immigrants “invading” the United States from the southern border.

Watch Joy Reid’s epic correction of GOP strategist: ‘This is going to be a white nationalist reelection’
President Donald Trump will continue to attack the four young women of color in Congress known as The Squad, MSNBC anchor Joy Reid predicted on Friday.
Trump has repeatedly used racist attacks to target the four, who are Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
Host Steve Kornacki interviewed Republican strategist Noelle Nikpour about Trump's message.
"So Noelle, for Republicans, again the folks who were getting in touch with [Mike] Pence and saying 'make Trump stop doing this,' do they have to be ready now for the possibility Trump’s going to keep doing these rallies, he wants to run against these four congresswomen in particular, make them the face of the Democratic Party?" Kornacki asked. "If the crowd starts chanting again, 'send her back,' 'send them back,” doesn't stop, is this going to be a feature of Trump rallies from here through 2020?"
Trump hates women of color for birthing babies keeping him from ‘making America white again’: MSNBC analyst
President Donald Trump's loathing of women of color is driven by the fact he hates the babies they birth, a Rutgers University professor argued on MSNBC on Friday.
"The Beat" anchor Ari Melber interviewed Prof. Brittney Cooper about Trump's racist attacks on four young women of color in Congress.
"Look, the thing that bothers me about Trump and his cronies is that they have a long history of attacking women of color, and it’s really important to say these comments are not just racist, they’re also deeply sexist," Cooper explained.
"They don't just attack people of color, they also specifically go after women of color," she continued.
Hope Hicks’ testimony ‘appears to be false’ — and Democrats have a plan to prove it: Judiciary member
Former White House communications director Hope Hicks likely lied to Congress -- and Democrats have a plan to prove it, a Democrat on the House Judiciary said on MSNBC on Friday.
Anchor Peter Alexander interviewed Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) about potential perjury by Hicks, who was a close confidant of Trump during his campaign, transition, and administration.
"It has been several months since President Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen testified that President Trump directed him to pay hush-money payments to adult film star Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, but new documents muddy the waters a bit for former White House communications director Hope Hicks, who testified to the House Judiciary Committee that she had no knowledge of the payments before they were made," Alexander reported.
