The fun started Thursday night, when White House spokesperson Kellyanne Conway took

“alternative facts” to a new level.

During a Thursday interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, the counselor to the president defended President Trump’s travel ban related to seven majority-Muslim countries. At one point, Conway made a reference to two Iraqi refugees whom she described as the masterminds behind “the Bowling Green massacre.”

“Most people don’t know that because it didn’t get covered,” Conway said.

The Bowling Green massacre didn’t get covered because it didn’t happen. There has never been a terrorist attack in Bowling Green, Ky., carried out by Iraqi refugees or anyone else.

It appeared initially that Conway was referring to two Iraqi citizens living in Bowling Green who were arrested in 2011 and eventually sentenced to federal prison for attempting to send weapons and money to al-Qaeda in Iraq for the purpose of killing U.S. soldiers, according to a statement from the Justice Department.

It is worth noting that there is also a Bowling Green in New York City’s financial district:

New Yorkers can be a sentimental — and satirical — bunch.

That’s why it was no surprise that an impromptu vigil was held Friday honoring the Bowling Green massacre victims that never were.

“We’re commemorating the victims of Bowling Green,” said Chris Bauer as he stifled a smile. “It never happened so they were never commemorated.”

Bauer and a handful of others stood near the Lower Manhattan park, holding signs and shouting, “We all are Bowling Green, never remember never forget.”

Cindy Voorspuy, of Staten Island, stood near the entrance to the Bowling Green subway station carrying a sign that read, “Never remember always forget.”

Needless to say, social media had a field day:

          I hope she sees that blob of cellulite in her dreams, she never should escape who she married in exchange for her soul.

          • Larry Schmitt

            Don’t worry, when they split, she’ll get what she wanted all along, a huge pile of money. Just like his other exes did.

            • Suzanne McFly

              I bet she will stay with him till he dies and that is why she supported him running for office. All this stress will give her hubby a heart attack any day now.

      • Larry Schmitt

        As real as his soul is.

      • whatthe46

        she has a fake face.

  • Mike N.

    But Trump can’t fire her because that would imply that he was wrong to include her in his white house staff; Trump is NEVER wrong, even if it means taking all of humanity down with him. (be afraid, be very afraid)

    • Larry Schmitt

      He’s never wrong, even when he’s wrong.

    Is there a GoFundMeNot account we can contribute to for those poor non victims?

    • Suzanne McFly

      Sure, I will set one up. It will be listed as the “Suzanne McFly, pay my bills fund”. How much can I count on you to contribute to this fund NOLA? I was at Bowling Green with many other victims and I wish someone would recognize the imgained horror we went through…………/s

      • granpa.usthai

        I actually drove through Bowling Green, Kentucky one time, I think.

        Do I get anything?

        maybe a government check for $1,000,000,000.00?

        OK,OK, I didn’t actually drive through Bowling Green, but I did drive by it on I-65, so – how much do I get?

        • Hirightnow

          Put on a list by Kellyanne?

        • Suzanne McFly

          You should at least get $50 for that, hell some woman got millions for spilling her own coffee on her and complain that it was hot.

      • amersham1046

      I just did. I remembered driving up I-65 and seeing an Exit sign that said:

      Bowling Green.

      It was horrifying!!!!

      the horrendous uncertainty of not knowing if I had enough booze to last to Cincinnati …. my buds in Nashville had taked me into going into survival mode with only 4 fifths and I was well into the 3rd one by then.

      I didn’t want to take a chance of getting delayed by going into a massacre just to get a few extra fifths, so I hung on till I got just outside of Liztown. (it was a close call)

      now, with ms. kellyanne bringing all this horror back, I’m very excited -er -uh very something that the sloshback of the terror of it all will cause me to start drinking!

      HA!

      already got a jump on the first sloshback already!

      bring it on you little blonde tart!

      I got a whole damn case backing me up!

    At least something great developed afterwards

  • burqa

    I just checked – there’s been no terrist massacre in Bowling Green, Virginia, either (at least not the county seat of Caroline County)….

  • burqa

    The headline on Le Monde read:

    Aujourd’hui, nous sommes tous des Bowling Greenians

    • Hirightnow

      Je suis Frederick Douglas!

        Je suis cheese!

  • burqa

    I’ll never forget where I was when I heard the dreadful news, nor will I forget President Trump’s outraged “day of infamy” speech to the nation in which he let a tear escape the corner of one eye….

    In New Jersey the Arabs were dancing in the streets….

  • mea_mark

    In the far future they will say, never forget the Bowling Green Massacre, it was the event that started World War III and nearly wiped out humanity.

  • Mensa Member

    It’s a difference between liberals and conservatives.

    Brian Williams tells one whopper and he loses his job. No liberals defend him.

    Donald Trump dishes out shameless stream of whoppers and conservatives elect him president.

    • burqa

      …..and then there’s Jimmy Carter, who promised he would never lie to us and kept his word….

    Kellyanne Conjob needs to shut her pie hole or better yet RESIGN…..
