NRA spokeswoman, Dana Loesch, is having a rough day – and it is about to get uglier. As the actress-turned-NRA-mudslinger watches the Oscars with the rest of Americans, she’s likely shaking with uncontrollable rage as actors openly discuss the refusal to address the nation’s avoidable epidemic of guns and the violence caused by them.
Loesche decided to make a statement of her own directed at “Hollywood Phonies”, “the media”, and “role model athletes” who pretend to care about children being killed.
“We’ve had enough of the lies, the sanctimony, the arrogance, the hatred, the pettiness, the fake news,” she said in her statement. “So to every lying member of the media, to every Hollywood phony, to the role model athletes who use their free speech to alter and undermine what our flag represents, to the American politics and who would rather let America burn than lose one ounce of their personal power…”
“To every lying member of the media, to every Hollywood phony, to the role model athletes who use their free speech to alter and undermine what our flag represents…Your Time is running out. The clock starts now."

The internet, however, did not respond as she might have expected. Social media users ridiculed Loesch, calling her a “failure” at becoming as famous as “Hollywood phonies” and “a failed sitcom wanna be actress”

Oh – and, Dana – girlfriend stop with the stupid. And don’t make shadowy threats you can’t back up. You’re a spokesmodel not a hit man. https://t.co/O1vmmoR8Eo
