Kellyanne Conway Just Slammed Beto O’Rourke for ‘Screaming and Cursing’ at Trump

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway slammed 2020 presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke for his comments about Donald Trump in regards to the mass shootings that took place over the weekend.

Two mass shootings, one in El Paso, Texas and the other in Dayton, Ohio, left over 30 people dead.

Conway said on Fox & Friends Tuesday morning, “Beto O’Rourke — from the Vanity Fair magazine cover to the vanity project candidacy — out there screaming and cursing about President Trump. That doesn’t heal a single soul. That doesn’t help to prevent another mass shooting.”

She continued, “This is a disgrace and if nobody else is going to talk about it, I’m going to talk about it. The president did not respond in kind. They politicized this over the weekend. They all blamed him and I want to name and shame them now because he did not respond in kind. They want to be president? He is the president. And he is trying to bring the country together and have concrete bipartisan, bicameral steps.”

Conway’s criticism of O’Rourke comes as retaliation for remarks the former Texas representative made in the aftermath of the shooting.

“We see it on Fox News, we see it on the internet, but we also see it from our commander-in-chief,” he said on CNN, Sunday. “He is encouraging this. He doesn’t just tolerate it, he encourages it, calling immigrants rapists and criminals, warning of an invasion on our border, seeking to ban all people of one religion.”

He also dropped the F-bomb while speaking to reporters as Conway mentioned. O’Rourke also said he doesn’t want the president to visit El Paso.

Conway later called out 2020 presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren for fundraising off the shooting.
