Kellyanne Conway isn’t the only member of the Trump administration talking about terror attacks that didn’t happen. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer tried to defend Trump’s Muslim ban during an interview with ABC’s Martha Raddatz.
“But what do we say to the family that loses somebody over a terroristic [sic]… whether it’s Atlanta or San Bernardino or the Boston bomber?” he told Raddatz in a Jan. 29 appearance on “This Week.”
Then he did it again:
One day later, appearing on NBC’s “Morning Joe,” he again mentioned Atlanta.
“Too many of these cases that have happened, whether you’re talking about San Bernardino, Atlanta, they’ve happened, Boston,” Spicer said. “The answer is, we act now to protect the future.”
The Boston bombing and shootings in San Bernadino were carried out by Islamist terrorists. However, neither of the culprits were foreign nationals from the seven countries listed in Trump’s executive order.
There has never been an Islamist terror attack in Atlanta, but there was an act of domestic terrorism.
The Daily Beast reports:
The White House did not respond to a request to clarify what Spicer was referring to when he named to Atlanta in a list of past Islamist attacks. In 1996, a pipe bomb exploded at Centennial Olympic Park during the Atlanta Olympic Games, but Eric Robert Rudolph, a Florida-born domestic terrorist, was convicted of that bombing.
Twice. He did it twice. This coming from a man who calls networks ‘fake news.’ But we do agree on one thing Spicer inadvertently said. The Trump administration should clamp down on domestic terrorism.
