‘This Is a Disgrace’: Conway Calls out Democrats for Using Recent Shootings in Fundraising Efforts

Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway called out several Democrats for using the recent mass shootings in fundraising emails over the past several days.

While the nation mourned the loss of dozens of innocent lives in the mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, some Democrats used the tragedy for self-promotion and fundraising.

As TownHall reported, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) sent out a fundraising email on behalf of Senators Doug Jones (D-Ala.) and Tina Smith (D-Minn.) in the wake of the shootings. Her email read:

“I’ll fight my heart out to make sure Democrats win up and down the ballot in 2020 — but if we’re going to beat Republicans and the gun lobby, it’s going to take a grassroots movement.

Will you chip in today to help Democrats flip the Senate? Your donation will be split among funds that will go to the eventual Democratic Senate nominees in 23 races and Senators Doug Jones and Tina Smith.”

Additionally, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) sent out a fundraising email calling for donations that would be split between the committee and anti-gun violence groups.

Conway found these fundraising efforts to be a “disgrace.” During an interview with “Fox and Friends,” she called out Democrats for politicizing the shootings for financial gain.

Watch Conway’s comments:

“Elizabeth Warren, yesterday, was raising money for Senate candidates Doug Jones and Tina Smith. She’s raising money in email appeal talking about the mass shooting. This is a disgrace and if nobody else is going to talk about it, I’m going to talk about it. The president did not respond in kind. They politicized this over the weekend. They all blamed him. And I want to name and shame them now.”

Conway went on to reflect on some of the steps President Donald Trump has taken to curb gun violence, including banning the bump stocks that were used in the Las Vegas shooting.

“[2020 Democrats] want to be president. He is the president. And is he trying to bring the president together and have concrete, bipartisan, bicameral steps. The red flag laws. He’s the guy who signed the Fix NICS Act into law in 2018. He did away with bump stocks after the Las Vegas shooting where law enforcement says they never found a motive for that monster. And he’s denouncing white supremacy and they’re out there denouncing him. America, take a look at it and don’t forget it.”

It is unclear how this debate over the Second Amendment will impact the 2020 elections, though both Trump and 2020 Democrats seem to be pushing for change. The president seems focused on building up mental health resources while Democrats push more gun restrictions.

They are not just parasites, freely spending tax dollars on BS, consider the Mueller fiasco, but they enable other parasites.

You're probably not aware there are MORE deaths in the US from automobile accidents than from guns. Why haven't the Leftists been braying for sensible automobile control laws; or, better yet, confiscating and crushing ALL automobiles like they want to do with guns? That should "fix" the problem.

As a proud member of the NRA, I am truly sickened by the demoncrats use of this terrible tragedy! They are like hyenas circling the prey, just waiting for their moment to pounce! Demoncrats are truly vile, evil people!!!!

Every time they pull this crap, I picture a bunch of vultures circling above a carnage and just waiting for their turn at the carcass. It is appalling that the media, the democrats, and even some republicans are insensitive to the pain and horror of something like this.


Ooh! Lives lost to gun violence! Now let’s examine Chicago, Baltimore, Memphis, and other Dimocrat-controlled cities.

Does anyone see the irony that Gilroy occurred in massively gun-controlled CA? Why isn’t that getting as much coverage as TX or OH? Hmmmm…


Politicking on corpses. How totally Dimocratic. How typical that they use it to advance their agenda, instead of thoughtfully proposing solutions.

The demorats will use any tradgedy to further their agenda. This is an insult to those famalies who have lost loved ones and have them in the hospital. It goes to show the depravity and depths that they will go to to regain the power that they crave! Absolutely shameful!!!
