In the two weeks since Donald Trump has been commander in chief, the most controversial aspect has been his executive order that critics call the "Muslim ban." His administration has often cited various examples to justify the order, but have not always given all the facts.

Spicer debunked

Last week, Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway came under fire while speaking to MSNBC host Chris Matthews. In an attempt to justify Donald Trump's controversial "Muslim ban" executive order, Conway cited the now in famous "Bowling Green Massacre," that allegedly occurred in the Kentucky city by two Islamic terrorists.

The problem is that the attack never took place, but instead involved two Iraqi immigrants living in Bowling Green who were arrested for aiding terrorists in the Middle East. While Conway has been the butt of many jokes, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is also guilty of promoting a fake terrorist attacks, as reported by The New York Daily News on February 8.

In several interviews over the last week, Sean Spicer has referenced an apparent terrorist attack in Atlanta when defending Donald Trump from media criticism.

During an interview last week with ABC's "The Week," Spicer first mentioned the apparent attack in the Georgia city. "What do we say to the family that loses somebody over a Terror Attack,, whether it's Atlanta or San Bernardino or the Boston bomber?" Spicer asked host Martha Raddatz.

The following morning, Sean Spicer spoke to MSNBC's "Morning Joe," and once again referenced the nonexistent incident.

"Too many of these cases that have happened, whether you're talking about San Bernardino, Atlanta, they've happened, Boston," the press secretary said.

Possible clarification

While it's unknown what Sean Spicer was actually talking about, it's possible that he was referring to the bombing during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.

However, the man responsible, Eric Rudolph, was a white American citizen, and not an Islamic terrorist from any of the countries listed in the executive order. As of press time, neither Spicer nor the White House has offered a comment to clarify the remarks.
