On Saturday, Blaze TV host Dana Loesch confronted Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts, who recently partnered with former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, about Watts’ allegations that Loesch is a paid employee of the “gun lobby” and Magpul.
“She falsely accused me of being a paid employee of Magpul,” Loesch explained in the full, unedited video of the exchange released Monday. “She falsely accused me of being a paid employee with the NRA. She told me that I had blood on my hands and a number of other comments. And I was just simply thinking that we could have a civil [question and answer session] about it …”
Unfortunately, the video shows Loesch repeatedly questioning Watts, and the Moms Demand Action founder failing to acknowledge Loesch’s existence, besides initially saying she wouldn’t talk to Loesh because she had been “insulting” online.
“Shannon, would you like to clarify or retract when you said I was a paid employee of Magpul?” Loesch asks multiple times, receiving no response. Watts eventually was whisked away in a black SUV with New York plates.
The Blaze TV host reflected in the video released Monday: “I have to question … how much they believe in a certain issue if they have to lie about it in order to get headlines.”
She concluded: “I’m just one mom, and I was wanting to talk to another mom, and ask her to correct the record for lying about me.”
