Obviously, not all Republicans support Donald Trump and radio show hostess, Dana Loesch, recently proved that – but in the worst possible way.
Kayleigh McEnany, a CNN contributor, said people who don’t support Trump weren’t really conservatives.
The comment apparently did not sit well with Loesch, a conservative Ted Cruz supporter, who ripped into McEnany with: “Babycakes, this was more than going on television and flashing them pearly whites and your flat-chested, red-dressed, over-sprayed bleach blonde hair, while you sit here and you preach all this stuff about who is and isn’t a conservative.”
Loesch obviously was not aware of the fact that McEnany had undergone a double mastectomy several years ago after she found out she was genetically predisposed for breast cancer.
“You like Donald Trump so much,” Loesch added, “let me act like him.” And she definitely did that with her insensitive comment. Even after realizing the fact that McEnany had had preventive surgery, Loesch did not issue an apology.
“Anyone who defends a candidate that has mocked a reporter’s disability, POWs and blasted women as ‘bimbos’ with ‘blood coming out of their wherever’ surely has no problem with my addressing surrogates in a similar fashion,” she said. “I’m sorry for the struggles she had but perhaps being the ‘victim’ of my words can give her an insight into the kind of harm Trump’s words inflicts on others.”
Although Loesch’s claims about Trump are not wrong, she chose the worst way to prove her point. She might not support the infamous GOP front-runner but her rhetoric was just as inflammatory.
It isn’t the first time Loesch has made outrageous comments on air. Previously, she commended U.S. Marines for urinating on dead Afghan civilians and claimed everything was fair in war.
Apparently, no one told her that two wrongs don’t make a right.
