In a recent CNN appearance, Counselor to the President Conway blamed former President Obama for failing to regulate bump fire stocks like the ones used in the Las Vegas shooting. 

"It was President Obama's ATF, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, in 2010 that decided not to regulate this device...That should be part of the conversation and part of the facts that you put before your viewers."

Conway went on to criticized Democrats, including Clinton and Sanders, for politicizing the issue of gun control in the wake of a mass shooting. Conway also blamed CNN and the mainstream media for their Russia obsessions, which she attempted to tie into the Las Vegas massacre.

But defenders of Conway say she is criticized so fiercely because she is good at her job. Jonah Goldberg argues in the National Review that Conway is treated unfairly by the mainstream media, and she is not the first communications official to lie on behalf of a politician.

Here’s a news flash for the news industry: Birds are gonna fly, fish are gonna swim, and politicians are gonna lie. The assumption that Conway is uniquely dishonest strikes me as not only preposterous but irrelevant. If she’s that dishonest, a good interviewer will make that clear to the viewer. Personally, I think Jake Tapper is more than capable of holding anyone’s feet to the fire.

And Conway has repeatedly defended herself and her duty to serve President Trump and get his message out into the world.
