Kellyanne Conway faces a furious backlash after linking Elizabeth Warren to Dayton massacre

Published

on

Kellyanne Conway is suggesting the Dayton gunman’s left-wing views motivated his mass shooting that killed nine people, including his sister — but she’s facing a strong pushback.

The White House adviser claimed on Fox News that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) may share some blame for the killings, because the 24-year-old gunman had expressed support for her presidential campaign on social media, and she shared a CNN report about his political views.

Daily Beast politics editor Sam Stein called attention to Conway’s post, and she quickly suggested he was blowing her tweet out of proportion.

“Me sharing @CNN story without comment bothers you, @samstein?” Conway tweeted.

Stein responded by asking her to explain why she’d posted the story.

“Not bothered. confused,” he tweeted. “It suggests that you believe his motive was political. Do you? If so, what information do you have to support that. And while I have you. I can’t seem to find the instance of you sharing a story about the El Paso gunman’s motivations. Can you explain why?”

Conway did not immediately respond to Stein’s questions, but other Twitter users seemed to agree she was blaming the Massachusetts Democrat for the Dayton shooting to remove some blame for another shooting, in El Paso, from President Donald Trump’s shoulders.

Trump spends morning hurling all-caps rage tweets while COVID-19 pandemic spirals out of control

Published

In the face a deadly pandemic that continues to spiral out of control, President Donald Trump spent his morning hurling angry all-caps tweets about topics ranging from the news media to former President Barack Obama to the prosecutors who have put several of his allies in jail.

The first Trump tweet concerned the media's reporting about the coronavirus pandemic, which Trump continues to insist only looks bad because the United States does so much testing.

"For the 1/100th time, the reason we show so many Cases, compared to other countries that haven’t done nearly as well as we have, is that our TESTING is much bigger and better," the president wrote. "We have tested 40,000,000 people. If we did 20,000,000 instead, Cases would be half, etc. NOT REPORTED!"
