Responding to criticism over her fashion decision to wear a necklace featuring bullets during a CNN interview, the spokesperson for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign sarcastically suggested that she might wear a fetus around her neck during her next TV appearance.
Katrina Pierson, whose appearances on TV representing the billionaire businessman only seem to add more controversy to his campaign, stopped by CNN”s “The Lead” to discuss Trump’s decision to go after former President Bill Clinton while wearing the necklace made up of interlinked bullet cartridges.
While little attention was paid to her message, her choice of jewelry became a topic of discussion on social media with some wondering if she was pandering to the NRA for her boss.
Writing on Twitter, Shannon Watts, the Founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, asked: “Surely @KatrinaPierson wore bullet necklace on #CNN to bring attention to 90 Americans fatally shot daily #gunsense.”
Pierson responded almost immediately, writing, “Maybe I’ll wear a fetus next time& bring awareness to 50 million aborted people that will never ger (sic) to be on Twitter.”
Each appearance by Pierson in support of Trump has brought the type of outrage that attends almost every move the Trump campaign makes.
Pierson recently criticized the other GOP presidential candidates over their reluctance to commit to using nuclear weapons on America’s enemies, glibly stating, “What good does it do to have a good nuclear triad if you’re afraid to use it?”
In another appearance she dismissed criticism of Trump’s since retracted proposal to ban Muslims — including American citizens — from the U.S., saying: “So what? They’re Muslim.”
