Kellyanne Conway says “late-night comedians” and their “anti-religiosity” are to blame for the tragic synagogue shooting on Saturday.
The White House adviser offered her thoughts on what she thinks motivated the tragedy that took the lives of 11 people on Monday’s edition of “Fox & Friends”.
“The anti-religiosity in this country that is somehow in vogue and funny, to make fun of anybody of faith, to constantly be making fun of people who express religion,” Conway said. “The late-night comedians, the un-funny people on TV shows. It’s always anti-religious.”
“And remember, these people were gunned down in their place of worship, as were the people in South Carolina several years ago, and they were there because they’re people of faith, and it’s that faith that needs to bring us together,” she continued. “This is no time to be driving God out of the public square, no time to be making fun of people.”
Suspected shooter Robert Bowers allegedly killed 11 worshippers during a Shabbat service at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh on Saturday. Bowers has been charged with 29 federal crimes.
Trevor Noah of “The Daily Show” quickly responded calling out Conway, “Hey Kellyanne, if late night shows are so anti-religious, why did God create TEN THOUSAND of them?”
U.S. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump will go to Pittsburgh on Tuesday to visit with victims’ families.
