TheBlaze TV’s Dana Loesch will be guest hosting ABC’s “The View” on Monday — that is, if the anti-gun group Moms Demand Action doesn’t get its way. Additionally, the far-left Media Matters has also come out of the woodwork to pressure on ABC on its “troubling” decision to give Loesch a national platform (which she already has at TheBlaze).
Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action, launched her own Twitter campaign on Saturday in protest of Loesch’s upcoming gig on “The View.”
In addition to re-tweeting messaging calling Loesch a “pro-gun extremist,” “hate monger,” and “gun bully,” Watts also repeatedly messaged the official Twitter account of “The View” to express her disappointment in the show for giving someone a platform who she happens to disagree with.
Watts also claimed that Loesch is a paid “shill” of firearms manufacturer Magpul. The only problem with the claim is that it’s not true.
We asked Loesch about the allegation and she couldn’t help but laugh, saying “those checks much be getting lost in the mail.” The conservative personality did attend the “Farewell to Arms” rally held by Magpul back in July, but she certainly wasn’t a paid spokesperson. She said she attended the event with Real Clear Politics and received no money from the gun company.
