Kellyanne Conway Wouldn't Be Surprised If People Were To Celebrate Her Death

Some folks in political circles are forever quotable. As such, they have little trouble finding an audience on the political talk show circuit. White House adviser Kellyanne Conway is an in-demand guest when it’s her turn to make the rounds, and she’ll typically offer up plenty of nuggets that are widely disseminated once her appearance comes to a close. As the Daily Mail shares, she did just that during a recent appearance on "Fox and Friends".

Conway appeared on the morning show after last week’s horrific shooting in Alexandria that left Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) in critical condition and four others wounded. She’s pretty taken aback at some of the rhetoric she has seen in the aftermath, but she thinks that slides right into the current toxic political environment that has infiltrated social media.

“Look at Twitter,” she said. “If I was shot and killed tomorrow, half of Twitter would explode in applause and excitement - this is the world we live in now.”

Half of Twitter may be an overstatement, but Conway is unfortunately not too far off the mark. Some users on social media have absolutely no filter, and that results in some incredibly outlandish and offensive things being posted - even in the wake of terrifying events such as the Alexandria shooting.

Conway touched on that topic as well, and she was also paying careful attention to how the various outlets covered things.

“Because as Steve Scalise was fighting for his life and crawling into right field in a trail of blood, you should go back and see what people were saying about the president and Republicans at that very moment,” she said. “Of course, they had to break in with the news of this tragedy, and since then there's been some introspection - some quieter, more muted voices toning down the rhetoric.”

On the bright side, Conway was at the bipartisan Congressional baseball game that went on in spite of the shooting, and she noticed a bit more of an optimistic tone in that environment.

“I was there at the game last night, at the beginning, and there was a feeling of unity and healing. I think that was brought about by our leader, president Donald Trump. He is being a healer in chief,” she added. “He is being remarkably wonderful to the entire country, calling for unity, praying for those who have been injured for their full recovery. People reverting to their hateful rhetoric already again yesterday.”

She would wrap things up by making it crystal clear that this shooting was an indisputable example that the hateful rhetoric out there has seriously crossed the line.

“The shooter the other day didn't hate baseball. He hated Republicans. And his social media feed was a complete anti-Trump, anti-Republican screed,” Conway said. “Nobody is responsible for this shooting except the shooter. There is no question about that. At the same time, you can oppose policies, but such hateful charged rhetoric that active resistance becomes armed resistance in the case of this lone gunman.”
