It's no secret that the political divide in the United States is an an all-time high, with those on the political right and left constantly at each other's throats. Just two days after GOP Rep. Steve Scalise was shot during a congressional baseball practice, Kellyanne Conway is accusing liberal Americans of wanting her to be killed.

Ever since Donald Trump decided to run for president, the landscape of American politics changed. The toxic tension between liberals and conservatives have reached a boiling point, as the far end of each political ideology remains defiant in defense of their agenda.

Following Trump's surprising election win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton last November, the president has created an environment that doesn't appear to be sustainable for the long run. The biggest issue facing the White House is over the Russian investigation, with Democrats pushing for the potential impeachment of the former host of "The Apprentice." One individual who has constantly defended Trump has been his current counsel and former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway. While Conway has been relegated to mostly interviews on conservative-friendly Fox News, that hasn't stopped her from making comments that have come under fire. As seen during a June 16 interview on "Fox & Friends," Conway made yet another controversial remark.

While joining the Fox News hosts on "Fox & Friends" on Friday morning, Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway addressed the aforementioned shooting of Steve Scalise, and had an interesting take on the issue. "As Steve Scalise was fighting for his life and crawling into right field in a trail of blood, you should go back and see what people were saying about the president and Republicans at that very moment," Conway said of liberals and the media.

Not stopping there, Kellyanne Conway then highlighted the tone on social media, in particular Twitter, where she believes half of America would cheer if she was assassinated.

"If I was shot and killed tomorrow, half of Twitter would explode in applause and excitement," Conway claimed, while noting, "this is the world we live in now."

While Kellyanne Conway and the administration continue to make unfounded claims, many accuse the White House of deflecting away from their own personal responsibility. Donald Trump is currently facing a growing Russian scandal, and only time will tell how the rest of his presidency plays out.
