Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway got into a contentious Twitter exchange with socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) over the weekend after the far-left Democrat failed to comment on the Sri Lankan massacre of Christians.
The exchange began when Conway clarified that she specifically called out AOC on national TV for remaining silent in the wake the of the attack, despite tweeting about her Netflix documentary.
“Wrong again. You can delete or apologize (holds breath),” Conway tweeted. “I was referring to @AOC silence about the Sri Lanka massacre of Christians (not ‘Easter Worshippers’ as Obama and Hillary oddly said).”
She added: “Try listening before spewing.”
That was enough to get a respond from the socialist congresswoman herself.
“Hello Ms. Conway,
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,” AOC responded.
She continued: “Are you trying to imply that I am less Christian? What was the point of you bringing this up on national TV?”
“Hi Congresswoman @AOC," Conway wrote back. “My best to your grandmother. My grandmothers are irreplaceable; miss them every day.”
She added: “Good that you now condemn Sri Lanka massacre. Some found it odd a prolific tweeter was silent. Following day you tweeted about your movie.”
Conway followed up with an offer to work together, and a thinly veiled shot at her support for socialism:
"@AOC you and I agree. I said on @CNN today & elsewhere that people of all faiths should be free from harm.
I judge no one’s faith, incl. yours
Extreme Ideas like Green New Deal & Socialized Medicine DO scare me tho!
Areas for bipartisanship? Call me.
Much work to do.”
AOC's excuse that she wasn't on Twitter didn't hold up well as she apparently found time to tweet about her Netflix documentary after the Sri Lanka massacre, but couldn't condemn the attacks.
This did not go well for Ocasio-Cortez.
