Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway vowed to keep “fact-checking” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her “squad,” despite the friction between them and the White House.

Last week, President Donald Trump was accused of racism after tweeting that some Democratic members congress — likely Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) — should “go back” to their home countries to solve their problems. Only Omar was born outside the United States.

Since then, the president has continued to call out the so-called “squad” on Twitter, including one tweet early Monday morning, where he called the group “young, inexperienced, and not very smart.”

During an interview on “America’s Newsroom,” Conway was asked to respond to the Twitter feud between the White House and the “squad.” She said she would continue to criticize the policies pushed by the freshmen Democrats because “nobody fact-checks these people.”

Watch Conway’s remarks:

“We’re all old enough to remember 10 days ago when the Democrats were eating their own. When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff — in a tweet that he has now taken down — likened the Democratic leadership to segregationists. She doubled down this week, back at home, going right up against the Department of Homeland Security should be abolished. All quarter-million of its employees, the people who keep us safe and secure including her: FEMA, Secret Service, Customs and Border Protection, ICE. I’m going to speak out against that every single day. […] Nobody fact checks these people. They are four Pinocchios walking around at all times.”

Conway added that she’s not worried about the freshmen members receiving too much public pressure because they are “loving their time in the spotlight.”

“People are saying, ‘Oh, President Trump wants these four to be the face of the Democratic Party.’ You know who else does? Those four do. They’re loving their time in the spotlight. And I can attack them on policy but they’ve been here for six months. I can’t exactly pull what they said two years ago as chairmen of committees.”

This feud between the White House and the so-called squad looks like it is here to stay.

Pinocchio had a long nose but he had a brain something the four don’t have.

Two of these women should not be in Congress at all. They do not follow our county’s laws. They only follow the Koran. They should never have been a candidate. They are social jihadists.

You Go KellyAnne!!! What a wonderful Patriotic Woman compared to the four communist women who don’t really care about this great country, the people, their constituents who have said that they will never vote for them again! These four women are only in congress just to show off and speak out for what They care about, not what their constituents need or want! They are really in for a rude awakening!!! And Omar needs to be looked at for immigration fraud and treason!

Whether it’s “fact checking” or simply calling them out – by NAME – for their hatred of America, Israel, Capitalism, the POTUS, this Commie Quad Squad needs to answer to the American people since their Party lacks the spine to address the issues. They need to be reminded they work for the American voters; not for their Marxist/Communist agenda aimed at destroying what the American people want in life. The Commie Quad Squad may find themselves on the outside looking in after the 2020 elections as NO American should have to contend with their anti-Americanism and hate for America.
