MSNBC’s O’Donnell Hectors Gun Advocate, Then Attacks Her Pro-Life Stance

by Andrew Johnson

On his MSNBC show last night, Lawrence O’Donnell badgered Gayle Trotter, an Independent Women’s Forum fellow and witness at the Senate hearing on gun control earlier that day, for her position on guns. O’Donnell laughed at and repeatedly interrupted Trotter, and accused her of “imagining things” when she presented a situation of a woman defending herself and her children with an assault weapon. When Trotter replied that women should have the “right to choose to defend themselves,” O’Donnell assumed she had a pro-life stance and leapt to attack her for it: “Gayle, you support a women’s right to choose any kind of massacre weapon that she might want, but you do not support a women’s right to make her own decisions in health.”
