After the news broke that a staff member in the Bill de Blasio administration had been caught with child porn, the news rocked the mayor of New York City. Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway decided to tweet about the story, but faced backlash from Donald Trump critics.

Twitter on Conway

On Friday, news broke out of New York City about a 29-year-old member with the office of Mayor Bill de Blasio. Jacob Schwartz was caught for allegedly being in possession of more than 3,000 images, and close to 100 videos, of child porn. The pornographic images included children as young as six months old, with court documents elaborating that some of the underage victims were "engaging in sexual conduct" with an "adult male." Arthur Schwartz, Jacob's father, spoke out about the news, calling it a "personal tragedy," while confirming that his son is "already in therapy." When asked to comment on the situation during a news conference on Friday, de Blasio declined.

While de Blasio is not issuing a statement, Kellyanne Conway tweeted out a link to the story from the New York Post on May 26, but the reaction from many social media users wasn't positive.

Often vocal on social media, Kellyanne Conway decided not to add a comment to her tweet about Jacob Schwartz, and instead just posted a direct link to the story in question. Conway has routinely tweeted stories that reflect negatively on Democrats, while shying away from highlighting articles that push back against Republicans.

Twitter fires back

Following Kellyanne Conway's tweet about the Bill de Blasio staff member, Twitter users didn't hold back their thoughts, while also ripping into Donald Trump in the process.

"What about that Republican who body slammed the reporter? Did you hear about that while digging up whatever you could find on child porn?" comedian Kristina Wong tweeted out.

"And you're posting this because??

Oh. Deflecting. That's right...#TrumpRussia," author and screenwriter T. Rafeal Cimino wrote on Twitter. "Nobody believes anything you say Mrs. Bowling Green," another social media user wrote.

"What about what Trump did for years, what about that 13 year old now since she's older got threatened if she testified #GrabThemByThePuzzy," a follow-up tweet went on to read.

"I sense some irony here. You work for a sexual predator who is self admitted. Nice attempt at deflection. #tryharder," an additional social media post added. The backlash continued as Kellyanne Conway was once again forced to deal with an onslaught of criticism from those who oppose Donald Trump.
