Chelsea Clinton attacked Kellyanne Conway after she incorrectly cited the “Bowling Green Massacre” — an event that never happened — while defending President Trump’s executive order restricting immigration from seven countries.
Though Conway later clarified that she meant to say “Bowling Green terrorists,” Hillary Clinton’s daughter savaged her on Twitter for “making up attacks.”
“Very grateful no one seriously hurt in the Louvre attack …or the (completely fake) Bowling Green Massacre,” Clinton tweeted Friday morning. “Please don’t make up attacks.”

After making the comment during an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, Conway defended her slip-up on Twitter.
“I meant to say ‘Bowling Green terrorists’ as reported here,” Conway tweeted with a link to a story about the two Iraqi citizens living in Bowling Green who were arrested in 2011 for trying to send money and weapons to al-Qaeda in Iraq.
