NRA host: Megyn Kelly attacked Gingrich over Trump comments as a ‘diversion’ from talking about guns

Published

on

Newt Gingrich went on Fox News Tuesday night and had a meltdown when Megyn Kelly called Republican nominee Donald Trump a “sexual predator.”

Gingrich suggested Kelly was commenting on the many sexual assault allegations against Trump because she doesn’t care about public policy and is “fascinated with sex.”

Defending his comments on Wednesday, Gingrich essentially said that someone had to stand up to Kelly’s “baloney” and that Republican women were thanking him for it.

The National Rifle Association is also apparently backing Gingrich’s misogynistic tirade.

On Wednesday, conservative talk show host Grant Stinchfield shared some words in support of Gingrich, which the NRA referred to in a tweet as “some much-needed truth about & the biased mainstream media.”

Stinchfield said, “The overwhelmingly biased attacks against Donald Trump are usually cloaked as real news, when in reality it’s a diversion from the important topics we need to be talking about like save the Second Amendment.”

Apparently the widespread issue of sexual assault is not an important topic. Stinchfield called Kelly’s comments “inflammatory” and a “diversion” from the “real, important issues facing America.”

“Second Amendment rights are very, very important to freedom-loving Americans,” Stinchfield said. “Yet, media members don’t have any clue of this.”

"Downey, who is American but works out of Berlin, had hoped his statue of the first lady would create dialogue about American politics, given that Melania Trump is an immigrant married to a president who seeks to stem immigration. Though the investigation is still pending, Downey said he hopes to interview the perpetrators for an upcoming exhibition."

In June, as the national conversation about racial justice in the wake of the George Floyd killing pushed many groups and organizations to examine the racial connotations of their brands, the country music group Lady Antebellum announced they were changing their name to "Lady A" to remove reference to the slavery period of Southern history.
