Kellyanne Conway Looks to Put ‘Massacre Nonsense’ Behind Her

By Chris Ariens 

Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway says she couldn’t do CNN Sunday because of family commitments. But the New York Times’ Jim Rutenberg, in his Monday media column, writes: “CNN declined to have her as a guest on Sunday — in part because the Trump administration offered her in lieu of Vice President Mike Pence, but also because of what the network told me were ‘serious questions about her credibility.'”

“False,” wrote Conway on Twitter Monday morning. “I could do no live Sunday shows this week BC of family. Plus, I was invited onto CNN today & tomorrow.”

Conway did sit for Howard Kurtz‘s Sunday media affairs show MediaBuzz, in an interview that was taped Friday afternoon. Conway talked about her gaffe during a Chris Matthews interview, in which she referred to “the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre.” (There was no such thing). Conway said she meant to say “terrorists” and blamed “the haters” for blowing it out of proportion. But the Kurtz interview also touched on Chelsea Clinton‘s criticism of Conway, which, for some reason, then roped in NBC News because Clinton was once a paid contributor to the network.
