Fox News contributor Stacey Dash blasted House Democrats for conducting what she said was an “uncivilized” protest in an effort to get a vote on gun safety bills.
On Thursday’s edition of Outnumbered, Dash agreed with House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), who called the Democrats’ protest a “fundraising stunt.”
“That’s all it is,” she opined. “It’s so uncivilized. I’ve never seen anything so uncivilized in my life. And in the House chamber, I mean, to behave that way.”
“And these are the people that are supposed to be representing, fighting for you,” she continued. “But this is our Second Amendment. They want to put more laws — and they think that’s going to stop bad people? No, that’s just going to stop good people from being able to defend themselves.”
Co-host Julie Roginsky reminded Dash that House Republicans had “pioneered” a similar sit-in over gas prices in 2008.
“That doesn’t make it right,” Dash insisted.
“We should come together on things that we all agree on,” Roginsky said. “Universal background checks. The vast majority of gun owners agree on this. Nobody’s doing anything about it.”
“I think the matter is, it’s the timing,” co-host Harris Faulkner interrupted. “It doesn’t apply tapestry-wise on what happened in Orlando.”

GOP senator admits she’s hoping Trump’s Ukraine scheme successfully sinks Biden
In a press conference with reporters on Monday, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) gave the game away by implying she hopes that President Donald Trump's scheme to dig up foreign dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden successfully sinks his candidacy and causes him to lose the Democratic caucuses in her state.
"Iowa caucuses are this next Monday evening. And I'm really interested to see how this discussion today informs and influences the Iowa caucus voters, those Democratic caucus goers. Will they be supporting Vice President Biden at this point?"
The remarks came after White House lawyers spent hours trying to change the subject from Trump's attempts to extort the president of Ukraine with military aid, to the conspiracy theory surrounding Biden's son's work in Ukraine that he had been demanding they pursue.
Republicans defended ‘a vile scoundrel’ who is ‘racist’ and ‘a petty tyrant’ — and it wasn’t Donald Trump
President Donald Trump's defense attorneys were blasted for their defense of a different president on Tuesday.
"I mean, of course Trump's lawyers are defending Andrew Johnson. Of course," noted MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes.
"Johnson was a vile scoundrel and a drunk and a racist and a petty tyrant whose presidency brought blood and shame upon this nation," Hayes continued. "That's the kindest characterization I could muster."
The host linked to a 2019 piece on Johnson that he wrote for The New York Times as a book review of "The Trial of Andrew Johnson and the Dream of a Just Nation by Brenda Wineapple.
Trump lawyer cites former GOP senator to discredit impeachment — but leaves out he supports convicting the president
During the Senate impeachment trial on Monday, White House lawyer Robert Ray attempted to contrast the impeachment of President Donald Trump with that of President Richard Nixon, by arguing that unlike in the former case, Republicans came together with Democrats to call for removing Nixon. As part of the comparison, he brought up then-Rep. William Cohen, who went on to become a U.S. senator from Maine and Secretary of Defense for President Bill Clinton.
"Together these six Republicans made history," said Ray. "They did so with no sense of triumph and no fist bumps."
What Ray chose not to mention, however, is that Cohen has specifically weighed in on the Trump case, and said that he should be impeached and removed over the Ukraine scheme.
