The NRA got one hell of a surprise Wednesday when President Trump suddenly advocated confiscating guns without a court order.
At a White House meeting on gun control, Trump commented:
“I like taking the guns early, like in this crazy man’s case that just took place in Florida … to go to court would have taken a long time. Take the guns first, go through due process second.”
NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch, who had been livetweeting the meeting, suddenly stopped the second those words left Trump’s mouth:
NRA’s Dana Loesch promptly stopped livetweeting the Trump/Congress meeting after Trump said “I like taking the guns early. Take the guns first, go through due process second.”

Imagine how upset Dana and NRA must be. They spent $30 million to get Trump elected, and now he’s the one saying that cops need to take guns away and seek the approval of a judge later. Wasn’t President Obama the one the gun lobby said was gonna take everyone’s guns away?
Even more important, why did Dana suddenly feel a need to stop tweeting? What’s wrong, Dana? AR-15 got your tongue? Did you have to go find your safe space and wrap yourself in body armor?
Something tells me Dana was on the phone trying to stop payment on her latest check to the Trump 2020 fund.
Social media gave Loesch, Trump, and the NRA hell for what transpired:
#CadetBoneSpurs will be getting a phone call from his boss later today.

@waynelapierrejr Trump just said on national TV that he wants to take away Dana and Wayne’s guns. Not everybody’s just the mentally ill.

Wonder how the gun fanatics feel now that they realize they were taken by a snake oil selling con man.
Dana, are you still with us, or have you changed your name already?
