No one can speak faster than Donald Trump’s counsel to the president, Kellyanne Conway. In a mind-numbing flood of words, Conway belted the host of CNN’s State of the Union, Jake Tapper. Amazingly, he was not only able to hear her rapid fired monologue, he was also able to respond just as quickly.
Now, Conway has delighted in a tweet duel with freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). The counsel attacked the New York House member for remaining silent after the SRI Lanka Easter bombings. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted:
‘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.’
Conway was fast on the return, saying that she judges “no one’s faith.” Indeed, the president’s adviser told the representative to call her:
‘1/2: Hi Congresswoman
@AOC. My best to your grandmother. My grandmothers are irreplaceable; miss them every day. Good that you now condemn Sri Lanka massacre. Some found it odd a prolific tweeter was silent. Following day you tweeted about your movie: https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1120364513700794369 …
‘2/2: @AOC 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’
Conway told Jake Tapper in their interview:
‘I see officials who get a lot of airtime and ink like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, congresswoman, who tweets many times about the mosque and never once about the Christians being killed in Sri Lanka.’
‘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?’
