That would be fine if we lived in a Utopia with the unicorns vomiting rainbows. But we're in the real world and have taken steps to be sure that our nation doesn't descend into a battlefield, much as some Progressives and Authoritarians seem to be trying to create just that situation.
Really? In the last 4 years we've had 3 separate instances where armed militia groups nearly started shooting at the feds. One of these days a powder keg is going to turn into the next Waco and at that point all bets are off.

I guess the term "Fake News" is now the strawman for when someone gets caught blatantly lying

lol so true! Debates are for facts. She's a rhetorician master, a mistress of propaganda, the dominatrix of propaganda.
She is in the Steve Bannon wing of the extremist fringe in control of the New Republican Party and all three branches of govt. The other wing is lead by Paul Ryan. Bannon gives Trump ideas, Trump carries them out, and Conway arrives on scene shortly afterward with smoke and mirrors. It's her job; IMO she won't say no, unless she reaches a personal breaking point (maybe physical more than mental in her case) working with a narcissistic sociopath. I think that as long as Bannon remains in control, Conway will be there to assist him.
Cosmopolitan's Kristen Mascia reported Monday that Conway brought up the "masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre" in a January 29 telephone interview. Cosmo didn't print the quote at the time.
Conway, a senior advisor to President Trump, said the same thing on "Hardball with Chris Matthews" four days later. After the interview aired, the "massacre" claim was widely derided. A handful of New Yorkers and hundreds of people in Bowling Green even held fake vigils to remember non-existent victims.
Monday's disclosure by Cosmo is likely to cause even more scrutiny of Conway's credibility.

She clearly just misspoke. The hyperbole and hysteria of some of you posters is downright scary. You're the type of people who rile up a peaceful protest into a full blown liberal riot. "Hands Up Don't Shoot" type of propaganda.
