Over the last two weeks that Donald Trump has been in the White House, the administration has been in a war of words with the media. After Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway used the term "Alternative Facts" to excuse the falsehoods coming out of the admissions, the rift between Trump and the press has only gotten worse.

Conway controversy

While Donald Trump has only been the President of the United States for two weeks, he's already making drastic changes and major moves in the White House. The most controversial has been his recently signed executive order that critics have labeled a "Muslim ban." The executive order in question restricts travel to and from seven countries in the Middle East, while blocking citizens of those areas from entering the United States.

Not long after the news broke of the executive order, protests sparked across the country, though the Trump administration refuses to back down. During an interview with MSNBC on Thursday, Kellyanne Conway appeared to get caught up with more "alternative facts," as reported by The New York Daily News on February 3.

Joining MSNBC host Chris Matthews for an exclusive interview, Kellyanne Conway was pressed on the aforementioned "Muslim ban." As part of her excuse and talking point to defend Donald Trump, the former campaign manager cited a nonexistent mass shooting terrorist attack. "I bet it's brand new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre," Conway said.

Continuing, Conway claimed "Most people don't know that because it didn't get covered." Despite her claims, the alleged "massacre" in Bowling Green, Kentucky never occurred.

Conway clarification

As of press time, the White House has not responded to the false claims made by Kellyanne Conway, but it's possible that she was referring to an attack against United States troops in Iraq, which was carried out by Mohanad Shareef Hammadi and Waad Ramadan Alwan, who had previously lived in Bowling Green.

However, no terrorist attack was carried in the city by the two men, or anywhere else in the United States. In addition, the "ban" Conway noted in regards to former President Obama's action in 2011 was isolated to one country, Iraq, and was not as extreme as what Trump has signed off on.
