Kellyanne Conway Calls Out ‘Unfunny’ Late Night Comics After Synagogue Shooting: ‘Anti-Religiosity’ is in Vogue

Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox & Friends Monday morning to talk about the anti-migrant and anti-Semitic gunman who killed 11 people at a Pennsylvania synagogue over the weekend.

After bashing the media for blaming the president’s rhetoric for a rise in political violence, Conway turned to what she considers the real cause of such tragedies.

“The anti-religiosity in this country, that is somehow in vogue and funny to make fun of anyone of faith, to constantly be making fun of people who express religion, the late night comedians, the unfunny people on TV shows, it’s always anti-religious,” Conway said.

“And, remember, these people were gunned down in their place of worship, as were the people in South Carolina several years ago,” she added, referencing the mass shooting at a black church in Charlestown. “And they were there because they are people of faith and it’s faith that needs to bring us together.”

“This is no time to be driving god out of the public square,” she added. “No time to be making fun of people.”

It’s unclear who Conway is suggesting was making fun of the Jewish religion. The man who was arrested for the synagogue shooting, Robert Bowers, frequently posted conspiracy theories on social media that accused Jews of funding the migrant caravan of “invaders” from Central America.
