Kellyanne Conway On Texas Massacre: I’m Happy At Times Like This
During an interview on Fox & Friends Monday morning, White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway blasted Democrats for complaining about the lack of gun control laws just hours after the largest mass shooting in Texas history and said she is “happy at times like this” because Donald Trump is president.
Conway was asked to comment on talk show host Chelsea Handler’s reaction to Sunday’s horrific church shooting, who linked the incident to Republicans’ lack of action on the increasing gun violence.
Innocent people go to church on Sunday to honor their God, and while doing so, get shot in killed. What country? America. Why? Republicans.

I don't know how these poor people are supposed to accept that their government watches these mass shootings and does nothing. It's so sick.

“I’m sorry that we even have to show her Twitter comments,” Conway told the hosts of Fox & Friends. “Because it’s so far beyond any type of reasonable response that anyone should have.”
“I’m really happy at times like this that President Trump is our commander-in-chief and our leader in this nation,” Conway added. “Because unfortunately, every president has to help heal the nation at different times, different tragedies. But the rush to judgment, particularly by people who just see politics and Trump derangement in every single thing they do, it doesn’t help the victims and it’s disrespectful to the dead.”
