Shannon Watts, founder of anti-Second Amendment organization Moms Demand Action, claimed Saturday that Dana Loesch attempted to "harass" and "intimidate" anti-gun protesters staging at a church in Dallas, where the annual National Rifle Association meeting is taking place.
It took Loesch just one tweet to prove Watts was lying.
It all started when Watts tweeted:
.@NRA lobbyist @DLoesch has shown up uninvited, with a camera crew, at a church where Texas @MomsDemand volunteers… https://t.co/VRHAqtndnw— Shannon Watts (@Shannon Watts) 1525535647.0
It was quite the wild accusation. Watts never posted evidence to prove her claims, but that didn't stop her followers from encouraging her to call the police.
And good thing she didn't because Loesch was nowhere near Watts and her anti-gun crew — and unlike Watts, Loesch easily proved it.
How did Loesch respond?
At the time of Watts' tweet, Loesch said she was "literally finishing lunch right now."
They lie because they’re incapable of adult discussions on policy. I’ve been with my family all day and am literally finishing lunch right now. I believe I’m owed an apology for this incendiary lie. pic.twitter.com/Hgbk2QIJKo— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) May 5, 2018
She even posted a picture of her and the unfinished lunch.
Loesch then called on Watts to apologize for her lie.
Let me know when @shannonrwatts finds the decency to apologize for outright lying about me. Meanwhile, I’ll be heading down to #NRAAM shortly and will see you all on the exhibit floor! Tomorrow I’ll be at the NRA booth at 12 to sign books and posters!— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch)May 5, 2018
Did Watts apologize?
No. She only doubled down.
