Kellyanne Conway Just Got Crushed By Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez For Questioning Her Christianity

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) on Sunday slammed White House counselor Kellyanne Conway for using the church bombings in Sri Lanka as a way to “stoke suspicion” of the first-term lawmaker’s Christianity.

“On Easter I was away from tech visiting my grandmother in Puerto Rico, which continues to suffer from the White House’s incompetent disaster response,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter after Conway attacked the congresswoman’s “silence” on the attacks.

“Are you trying to imply that I am less Christian? What was the point of you bringing this up on national TV?”

Conway hours earlier took a jab at Ocasio-Cortez for condemning the New Zealand mosque shootings but failing to speak out about bombings at churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka that left more than 300 people dead.

“I see officials who get a lot of airtime and ink like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, congresswoman, who tweets many times about the mosque and never once about the Christians being killed in Sri Lanka,” Conway said during a Sunday interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Conway also took aim at former President Obama and former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for describing the people attacked as “Easter worshippers.”

Ocasio-Cortez said in a separate tweet that “the terrorist attack in Sri Lanka was horrifying.” She also said that “saying ‘Easter worshippers’ matters bc Easter is the holiest day of the year for Christians, & to be targeted on Easter highlights how heinous the attack was.”

“You are using this as an excuse to stoke suspicion around my Christianity + faith life,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “The Sri Lanka massacre was horrifying. No one should be targeted for their religion. If you’re so moved, let’s do more to welcome immigrants fleeing religious persecution.”
