White House counselor Kellyanne Conway attacked Democrats Friday for quickly politicizing the Santa Fe, Texas, school shooting to push for more control during interview with Fox News Radio’s Todd Starnes.
“They are just… They haven’t even stopped to remember the victims. They’re going right into this gun grab mode,” Starnes said, speaking specifically of statements by Nancy Pelosi, New York Governor Cuomo and others. “This is really deplorable what they are doing.”
“There is certain reflexive and thoughtless and pretty predictable and pathetic reaction coming from lots of folks,” Conway responded. “And frankly, it usually comes from folks who, unlike Donald J. Trump, have been in office for decades and decades and decades and so that certainly applies to the two people you just mentioned. It also is always insensitive that they will [go] right past the fact that people are suffering, their lives have changed in blink of a second, and they never get all the facts. They just know, right away, they know because it fits the political narrative, and I’m looking up at my TV screen right now with the sound off and people are literally heartsick and grief stricken, and they deserve our assistance and our comfort and our prayers.”
“When you’re a hammer the whole world looks like a nail and for them everything looks like a political opportunity,” said Conway.
