The #ThaiCaveRescue shows the very best of humanity.— Kellyanne Conway (@KellyannePolls) July 10, 2018
Grateful hearts for the brave rescue teams.
Sorrow for the rescuer who passed away.
Prayers for healing and full recovery for all affected, especially those 12 boys.
We’re better when we come together. https://t.co/5asi60E0wL
Counselor to President Donald Trump Kellyanne Conway followed in the footsteps of her boss and attempted to praise the Thai cave rescue that had the whole world come together to pray for the safe return of the young soccer team and their coach.
However, Twitter users did not take kindly to Conway’s tweet, which said “we are better when we come together” as it stands to contradict everything the Trump administration has been doing to keep undocumented immigrants out of the United States.
The replies to Conway’s tweet, rooting for “humanity,” were rather brutal but not unexpected.
The Trump administration has recently faced sever bipartisan rebuke over the inhumane separation of migrant children, as young as 1-year-old, from their parents at the U.S. border.
The separations have prompted nation-wide protests in order to pressure the government to reunite separated families — a task that seems rather daunting now.
While Conway praised humanity in her tweet, the action of the very administration she works for have been anything but humane.
Twitter user eviscerated the White House adviser for the blatant lack of self-awareness.
your administration still hasn't reunited the more than 3,000 kids you kidnapped with their families. spare us the virtue signaling— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) July 10, 2018
You know there are some kids in internment camps and they don’t even need suba divers to rescue them.— Molly Jong-Fast (@MollyJongFast) July 10, 2018
How nice it must be for all those children to be reunited with their parents. Really inspiring that the government didn’t rest until it had them safely together again.— Dan Steele (@offroad_dreamin) July 10, 2018
Honestly you’re unbelievable. No one is that lacking in self-awareness. It has to be deliberate.
Awwww sweet! Now let's rescue the children your administration separated from their parents & stuck in cages; let's rescue the children in Flint; let's rescue the children in Puerto Rico; let's rescue the children of innocent black men shot dead by police. #BeBetter #BeBest— Jamie Schler (@lifesafeast) July 10, 2018

Take a cue and learn what a heart is KELLYANNE.— Kristina Womp-Wong ?? (@mskristinawong) July 10, 2018
Conway wasn’t the only Trump administration employee facing the wrath of the American citizen over child separations.
Recently, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was chased out of a restaurant by protestors chanting, “Where are the children?”
