Kellyanne Conway Tried To Shame AOC For Not Being ‘Less Christian’ And The Rep Put Her On Blast About Puerto Rico
We know Republicans and the White House have a thing for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Fox News alone mentions her name at least 75 a day — they are stanning hard. We give them a pass on their obsession with her mainly because her ideas ruffle their feathers so much. We don’t, however, condone taking a swipe at her faith and compassion.
The feud between Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and White House senior advisor Kellyanne Conway began when Conway took a swipe at Rep. Ocasio-Cortez for not publically responding to the Easter massacre in Sri Lanka.
Conway said Rep. Ocasio-Cortez stayed quiet about the terrorist attack in Sri Lanka that killed almost 300 people.
Conway’s tweet was in response to another tweet that was deleted and her on-air interview that she did in which President Donald Trump’s crony took a moment to allege that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez didn’t acknowledge the bombings. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez didn’t take that call out lightly.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez responded by saying she didn’t respond because she wasn’t using social media during her Easter visit with her grandmother in Puerto Rico.
“Hello Ms. Conway, On Easter, I was away from tech visiting my grandmother in Puerto Rico, which continues to suffer from the White House’s incompetent disaster response. Are you trying to imply that I am less Christian? What was the point of you bringing this up on national TV?”
The Bronx and Queens district representative used this opportunity to call out the White House for their “incompetent” response to Puerto Rico’s ongoing hurricane recovery.
“‘Corrupt’ is a good one, too,” she added. “I’m curious, how do you spin ignoring and neglecting the largest mass death of people on American soil in decades, @KellyannePolls? After all, the official count of 3,075 people is much bigger than the 64 number your admin clung to for so long.”
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez went on to say, “The terrorist attack in Sri Lanka was horrifying. Saying ‘Easter worshippers’ matters because Easter is the holiest day of the year for Christians, & to be targeted on Easter highlights how heinous the attack was—just as saying yesterday’s #SanDiego shooting was on Passover. You are using this as an excuse to stoke suspicion around my Christianity + faith life, @KellyannePolls. The Sri Lanka massacre was horrifying. No one should be targeted for their religion. If you’re so moved, let’s do more to welcome immigrants fleeing religious persecution.”
Could there be peace between these two ladies?
Conway responded to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez saying, “you and I agree. I said on @CNN today & elsewhere that people of all faiths should be free from harm. I judge no one’s faith, incl. yours Extreme Ideas like Green New Deal & Socialized Medicine DO scare me tho! Areas for bipartisanship? Call me. Much work to do.”
That’s sort of an apology, right?
