Appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday morning, Conway told Jake Tapper that Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat, tweeted "many times" about the shootings at New Zealand. but never once tweeted about the series of church bombings in Sri Lanka last week that left more than 250 people dead and hundreds injured on Easter Sunday.
Conway's comments Ocasio -Cortez, whose use of Twitter has become one of her trademark characteristics, defended the fact that she did not post a tweet about last week's attacks, noting in one tweet that she had been hiatus while visiting her grandmother in Puerto Rico.
"What are the points of you bringing this up on national TV?" Ocasio-Cortez asked Conway in the tweet.
In a separate tweet, Ocasio-Cortez wrote that the terrorist attack in Sri Lanka was something horrifying, "before saying in another
that Conway was" using that as an excuse to stoke suspicion around my Christianity + faith life. "
"The Sri Lanka massacre was horrifying." No one should be targeted for their religion, "Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
On Sunday afternoon, Conway replied to Ocasio-Cortez in a pair of tweets. In the first
she gave her best to the congresswoman's grandmother and said she missed her own every day, calling them "irreplaceable." Conway also said, "Good that you now condemn Sri Lanka massacre." Someone said it was a tweeter silent after that. "
In a second tweet, Conway said she did not judge anybody's faith
including that of Ocasio-Cortez, and noted that she said during CNN's appearance "that people of all faiths should be free from harm." She said Ocasio-Cortez's "extreme ideas like Green New Deal & Socialized Medicine DO scare me tho!"
The congresswoman also used the moment earlier in the day to comment on the Trump administration's response
to the devastation in Puerto Rico caused in 2017 by Hurricane Maria, saying in the hiatus that the country "continues to suffer from the White House's incompetent disaster response."
"I'm curious, how do you spin ignoring and neglecting the largest mass death of people on American soil in decades, (Kellyanne)?" Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
