Conway: People Too Quick to 'See Politics' in Texas Massacre

(Fox News' "Fox & Friends")

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway Monday raged against people who rush to judgment, following incidents such as Sunday's church massacre in Texas, saying that when "people see politics immediately" it does nothing to help the situation.

"It's just like I said in Las Vegas over a month ago," Conway told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "You had families literally still looking for their loved ones through the rubbles in remains in Las Vegas running from hospital to hospital. There were people who were injured who went on to pass away, yet, people are taking to Twitter in the comfort of their very luxurious lives pointing fingers."

Meanwhile, such people never reached out to help with charities or help people heal, Conway complained.

"I'm very happy at times like this that President [Donald] Trump is our commander in chief and our leader in this nation because, unfortunately, every president has to help heal the nation at different times, different tragedies," Conway continued. "The rush to judgment, particularly by people who just see politics and Trump derangement in every single thing they do, it doesn't help the victims and is disrespectful to the dead."

Meanwhile, Conway said that during a briefing at the White House, administration officials learned that there was "no connection, obviously," to terrorism in the incident.

Authorities in Texas said the shooter, Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, sent his mother-in-law several threatening texts before murdering 26 people. The age range of those killed is from 18-months-old to some in their 70s as they attended worship services at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas Sunday morning.

"This was not racially motivated, it wasn't over religious beliefs. There was a domestic situation going on with the family and in-laws," Freeman Martin, regional director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, told a news conference.

"The suspect's mother-in-law attended this church," he said. "We know he sent threatening ... that she had received threatening text messages from him."

The in-laws were not at the church service on Sunday, but did speak with authorities there Sunday afternoon.

"This is a person who was dishonorably discharged and had assault charges against him," said Conway, noting those charges were for incidents involving Kelley's wife and child. "As everyone has said, there is evil among us and as the president has said, we lock arms and through the tears we come together."
