Trump’s White House counselor, Kellyanne Conway, appeared on Fox News with Chris Wallace on Sunday morning and tried to defend Trump’s Muslim ban. The segment did not go the way Conway and Trump would have liked.

Wallace asked first about the ACLU’s victory in court on Saturday which granted a temporary stay on Trump’s executive order barring travel from seven countries: Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. Conway dismissed the judge as an “Obama appointee.”

‘The Obama appointee judge in Brooklyn’s stay of order (sic) really doesn’t affect the executive order at all, because the executive order is meant to be prospective. It’s preventing, not detaining.’

The green card holders sitting in detention rooms in airports would disagree. They aren’t being “prevented” from harming our country because they had no intentions of doing so. They’re simply being detained and kept out of their homes and away from their families.

Wallace tried to clarify that point, asking “So the ones that are here, if they’re vetted, they can stay?” Conway agreed that they can, but that doesn’t solve the problem of green card holders and other legal immigrants caught outside the country who are now being kept out.

‘This whole idea that they’re being separated and ripped from their families, it’s temporary, and it’s just circumstantial in terms of whether you were one of those three hundred and something that were already on an aircraft or trying to get on an aircraft as opposed to three thousand children who will be forevermore separated from the parents who perished on 9/11.’

Conway has some selective memory issues. Not one native from any of the seven countries banned from travel participated in the attack on September 11, 2001. There were participants from Saudi Arabia, however, yet Saudi Arabia is not on the list of countries with a travel ban.

In case you’re wondering why that is, Donald Trump owns businesses in Saudi Arabia.

When Chris Wallace called Conway out on that fact, Conway dismissed it.

‘This list of seven countries was offered by President Obama and his administration.’

In one of the best moments of the entire interview, Wallace shot back on that answer.

‘Well, that’s never stopped you before.’
