14. Don't mention the Bowling Green Massacre!

It wasn't a massacre, it was a full scale war!

Many a good man bit the dust that day, fighting for his country, woke up that morning and saw the end of the day lifeless, staring into the starry night without seeing.
They fought bravely, patriots all, committed to support and defend the Constitution to the bitter end.

Bowling Green, that quiet and gentle city, is still recovering. Scarred forever, the good Patriots who did not see the next day will go down in history. Statues will be erected in their honor!

Ehhh? What ya mean, it never happened? Kelly Anne, you bitch!

"Her false statement went viral and became the top trending topic on Twitter, with many tweets parodying it. A website was set up anonymously for the purpose of collecting donations for supposed victims. Facebook users used the site's safety check feature to act as if the event were real. Mock vigils were held in Kentucky and New York in commemoration. It provoked widespread press reaction, with many relating it to Conway's earlier use of the phrase alternative facts to describe false statements by White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer in the wake of the inauguration of Donald Trump. "

And all those charities to which I have contributed so generously, The Mothers of Bowling Green, The Orphans of Bowling Green, The Christian Martyrs of Bowling Green . . . . all fakes?

EDIT: Yes, I'm joking. Need a good laugh at Trump & cronies occasionally.
