A new website launched on Thursday night mocks President Trump's senior adviser Kellyanne Conway's recent flub -- citing a non-existent "Bowling Green massacre" to defend Trump's recent immigration order.

The website's name, "Bowling Green Massacre Victims Fund," is pulled straight from her own words.

"We all still carry the vivid memories of what horrors occurred at Bowling Green, but some still relive those moments everyday as they work to rebuild a community torn apart," the site's description reads.

When attempting to make a donation on the site, visitors are redirected to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) donation page. Following Trump's immigration order, the ACLU has seen millions of donations and a surge in memberships.

During the MSNBC interview, Conway discussed the fake event in an effort to defend the president's controversial travel ban. The senior adviser claimed the massacre is what led to President Obama's 2011 measure to "ban" visas from Iraq refugees for six months.

Though the State Department stopped processing refugees from Iraq for six months in 2011, the move wasn't entirely a ban but a slowdown in processing refugee applications. The measure was a response to a 2011 case in which two Iraqi refugees were arrest on terrorism charges in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The duo was eventually convicted of trying to assist al Qaeda in Iraq with money and weapons.

Following the flub, Conway later clarified in a tweet that she intended to say "Bowling Green terrorists."

Conway's original claims made in Thursday night's interview are also quoted along the bottom of the "Victims Fund" website.
