Kellyanne Conway Said “Bowling Green Massacre” in Two Separate Interviews Prior to Last Week

Last week in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, White House aide Kellyanne Conway tried to justify President Trump’s travel ban by saying former president Barack Obama enacted an Iraqi refugee ban in response to the “Bowling Green Massacre.” Shortly after she went off the air, it was uncovered that such a “massacre” never happened. After widespread criticism, Conway took to Twitter to claim that she misspoke, and that she was trying to refer to the arrest of two terrorists in Bowling Green, Kentucky. That admission in itself now also looks to be false.

After correcting herself on Twitter last week, Conway told Fox that she was being unfairly punished for making the blunder. “There was no Bowling Green massacre,” she elaborated. “There was a plot. They’re masterminds. I should have said ‘plot,’ and I should have said ‘terrorists.’”

However, two media outlets have since come forward, confirming that the MSNBC interview isn’t the first time Conway made the ‘mistake.’ In an interview with Cosmopolitan in 2011, Conway referenced it again invoking an alleged travel ban enacted by the Obama administration. In a separate interview with TMZ on the same day, Conway again said the words “Bowling Green Massacre” discussing the same subject.

One thing is becoming clear, “Bowling Green Massacre” is less a Freudian slip, and probably more of a scare tactic. It must be tough to justify banning people from seven countries from coming into America if you can’t prove that people from those countries pose a threat.
