Hell Freezes Over: Kellyanne Conway Admits Sarah Sanders Lied During Fox Interview

In a rare moment of honesty, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday admitted that Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied about the number of suspected terrorists apprehended at the southern border. But the alternative facts guru quickly returned to her true form and downplayed the misrepresentation as “an unfortunate misstatement.”

Fox News host Laura Ingraham asked Conway if the White House’s inability to get its facts right on immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border hurts its credibility after Sanders said on “Fox News Sunday” that “nearly 4,000 known or suspected terrorists come into our country illegally, and we know that our most vulnerable point of entry is at our southern border.”

Anchor Chris Wallace challenged Sanders on her comments, noting that the State Department had said there haven’t been any terrorists found coming across the border and that most were captured at airports.

Conway on Monday acknowledged that most of the nearly 4,000 terrorists apprehended in fiscal 2017 were found at airports, citing a report from the Department of Homeland Security.

“It got unfortunately conflated by a colleague,” she said.

Ingraham went on to criticize the media for “cherry-picking” statistics and argued that “we all kind of make mistakes.”

“That was an unfortunate misstatement and everybody makes mistakes, all of us,” Conway said.

Trump administration officials, including the president and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, have in recent weeks have falsely stated that thousands of terrorists attempt to enter the country through the southern border.
