Kellyanne Conway found a way to blame Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the media’s “obsession” with the Russia scandal for the gun violence epidemic in the United States.
She was with CNN host Chris Cuomo, when she blamed them.
While meeting survivors and first responders at a Las Vegas hospital, Donald Trump was asked about gun control, and said, “we’re not going to talk about that today.” So Conway said that the problem’s on Democrats for not tweeting about gun control earlier.
“You will see that this conversation isn’t being had until tragedies like this strike by those who try to be the loudest voices. You see Hillary Clinton, who’s out on a book tour, talking about herself, not talking about this,” Conway said. “You see her rushing to judgment on Twitter the other day while people are still looking through the rubble, searching through the hospitals for their missing loved ones, trying to politicize it.”
“Your obsession with Russia has been to the exclusion of this conversation,” Conway continued.
Then an exasperated Cuomo interjected, “Kellyanne, I’m tired, so I apologize in advance, but I have to tell you, a lot of this just doesn’t wash. All you need to know about the bump stock is that it was legal and that’s what allowed him to lay down that field of fire. That’s all you need to know about it. There’s no thoughtful conversation to have about it.”
Then of course, Kellyanne found a way to blame former Pres. Obama.
