NRA’s Loesch attacked Kayleigh McEnany as ‘flat-chested’ after Trump spokeswoman’s breast cancer surgery

Published

NRA spokeswoman and right-wing radio host Dana Loesch attacked former Trump campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany as being “flat-chested” while McEnany was undergoing surgical treatment for a predisposition to breast cancer, said The New York Times on Saturday.

In a profile about Loesch as the controversial face of what some have called racially-charged rhetoric from the National Rifle Association (NRA), the Times‘ Laura M. Holson reported on insults Loesch volleyed at McEnany — who is now the spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee (RNC).

After then-campaign surrogate McEnany chided a friend of Loesch’s during a CNN segment for not being more wholeheartedly pro-Trump, Loesch lashed out.

During her radio show, Loesch laid into McEnany’s comments as a personal affront.

“Who the hell is this chick?” Loesch demanded to know. “[W]ho is she? I had to look her up because I didn’t know who she was.”

She went on, “Beyond having her lips overdrawn, so she could repeatedly appear on cable news as a talking head for a particular issue, this chick has not been in any sort of battle, nor has she ever been on the frontline in anything ever, so you can back up.”

“Baby cakes,” Loesch ranted, “this was more than just going on television and flashing your pearly whites and your flat chest, red dress, over-sprayed bleach blond hair while you sit and preach all this stuff about who is or isn’t a conservative? You like Trump — let me act like him for a minute. I bet you love me now.”

At the time, McEnany was recovering from a preventative double mastectomy, which she underwent after learning she is genetically disposed to cancer.

Loesch, the Times said, has never apologized for the incident.

2020 Election

Here’s how Trump hopes to recreate his 2016 presidential win — and how Democrats can send him packing

Published

on

Writing for CNN on Saturday, election forecaster Harry Enten explained how President Donald Trump's recent, racist behavior lies in his desire to recreate the same electoral conditions that gave him a victory in 2016 in the presidential election next year.

"The Trump strategy is pretty simple: 1. Drive up the unfavorable ratings of his Democratic rival as he did in 2016 in order to compensate for his own low ratings. 2. Bank on an electoral college/popular vote split as he did in 2016. 3. Use a campaign of racial resentment to drive up turnout even more among groups favorable toward the President," wrote Enten. As he noted, Democrats have excellent odds to flip back Michigan and Pennsylvania, but they will have to work harder to win back any of the other states Trump flipped from the 2012 Obama camp — in particular Wisconsin, which was the closest state after those two.

Conservative suggests Trump’s racist rhetoric will incite worse than ‘send her back’ chants: ‘One shudders to wonder’

Published

on

In a column for the Washington Post, conservative Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Kathleen Parker said the refusal by Republican lawmakers and the evangelical community to condemn Donald Trump's racist rhetoric is paving the way for something far worse than mere "send her back" chants.

Under a headline that bluntly states, "Those who don’t condemn Trump’s racism are complicit in his bigotry," Parker gets right to her opinion of the president, writing, "Going out on a limb here: President Trump is a racist. And a sexist. And a xenophobic nationalist. Among other things. Not to name call or anything."
