Kellyanne Conway tweeted back at Chelsea Clinton on Friday after being scolded for her comments on the “completely fake” Bowling Green massacre.
“Bosnia lie a Great reminder,” Conway wrote in a tweet, referencing Hillary Clinton’s false claim that she was under sniper fire in Bosnia in 1996.
“And [to Chelsea Clinton and others], you can’t ‘invent’ quality candidates either. I misspoke; you lost the election,” she added.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Thursday, Conway said that President Obama instituted an immigration ban on Iraqi refugees after the “Bowling Green massacre.” The so-called massacre, however, never happened.
“I bet it’s brand-new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized, and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre. It didn’t get covered,” Conway continued.
Chelsea Clinton blasted Conway for her comments earlier on Friday, asking Trump’s adviser to stop making up attacks.
“Very grateful no one seriously hurt in the Louvre attack …or the (completely fake) Bowling Green Massacre. Please don’t make up attacks,” Clinton tweeted, while referencing a failed attack in Paris earlier the same day.
Very grateful no one seriously hurt in the Louvre attack …or the (completely fake) Bowling Green Massacre. Please don't make up attacks.

Conway corrected her mistake after the interview, stating that she made an error and was actually referring “Bowling Green terrorists” who were arrested for planning to supply al Qaeda with various weapons.
