Everything she says is reasonable…
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway called out Beto O’Rourke Tuesday for “screaming and cursing” at President Trump in the wake of the weekend mass shootings, including in the hometown of the former Texas congressman, El Paso.
Conway argued there is “scant” coverage of reports that the Dayton, Ohio, shooter’s Twitter feed was anti-Trump, and supported Antifa and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
“I’m hopping mad this morning,” she said,” criticizing the “nonstop punditry” from O’Rourke and Rep. Tim Ryan, pointing out both are “mired in the low single digits” in polls.
After the assault on an El Paso Walmart on Saturday, O’Rourke said that Trump “is a racist and he is encouraging racism in this nation.”
“What do you think? You know the s— he’s been saying,” said O’Rourke. “He’s been calling Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals. I don’t know, like, members of the press, what the f—? Hold on a second. You know, I—it’s these questions that you know the answers to.”
Conway said the rhetoric of O’Rourke and others is unhelpful and the Democrats are trying to politicize the tragedies.
“Beto O’Rourke, from the Vanity Affair magazine cover to the vanity project candidacy, out there screaming and cursing about President Trump, that doesn’t heal a single soul, that doesn’t help prevent another mass shooting,” she said, then calling out Warren for trying to raise money after the shootings
“She’s raising money in an email appeal talking about the mass shooting. This is a disgrace and if no one else is gonna talk about it, then I’m gonna talk about it. The president did not respond in the kind. They politicized this over the weekend, they all blamed him and I want to name and shame them now.”
Conway said Trump wants to “bring the country together” and move toward bipartisan legislation to combat mass shootings.
