During a Friday morning segment on “Fox & Friends,”Kellyanne Conway expressed her disappointment about the media coverage she witnessed the day GOP majority whip Steve Scalise and Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX) were shot and wounded while practicing for a congressional baseball game.
The White House adviser believes the shootings of the two Republican congressman is a direct result of all the unfavorable reporting the Trump administration has been subjected to over it’s first few months. She also thinks her own vocal critics would probably cheer if she were killed.
“I went back and looked at exactly what was being discussed on all the TV shows, except yours, at 7:09 a.m. on Wednesday, when this happened, and it’s a really curious exercise, because as Steve Scalise was fighting for his life and crawling into right field in a trail of blood, you should go back and see what people were saying about the president and Republicans at that very moment,” Conway said. “Of course, they had to break in with the news of this tragedy, and since then there’s been some introspection — some quieter, more muted voices toning down the rhetoric.”
“But look at Twitter,” Conway continued. “If I was shot and killed tomorrow, half of Twitter would explode in applause and excitement — this is the world we live in now.”
