By now, everyone is aware of the fact that a deranged shooter targeted Congressional Republicans on Wednesday morning as they practiced for a bipartisan charity Congressional baseball game that they were supposed to play against Congressional Democrats on Thursday. As the nation reels from another mass shooting and sends good thoughts to those injured, their families, and everyone affected, White House Counsel Kellyanne Conway decided to show just how despicable she is, and use this tragic situation to paint people on the Democratic side of the aisle as violent.
Conway tweeted out the following as soon as she learned of the shooting:
Political violence is never okay, no matter how much someone is stewing about the current political climate. There are terrible things happening in Washington right now; we all know that. But this is not the answer, and this is not the time for partisan politics. This is a time for all Americans to come together and denounce violence in all its forms. That sort of leadership starts at the top, but of course Kellyanne Conway is not going to show it, despite her prominent White House position.
This tweet is nothing short of shameful, and if the White House really wants to send the proper message about what Conway is doing here, they’d fire her immediately.
