Trump spokesperson muses about wearing a fetus on air

By Nick Gass for Politico

Katrina Pierson, Donald Trump's national spokeswoman, responded to criticism of a necklace made of bullets that she wore during an interview by tweeting that she could wear something even more politically divisive in her next public appearance — a fetus, to "bring awareness to 50 million aborted people that will never [get] to be on Twitter." She later made clear, however, that she was not being literal.

Following her Tuesday afternoon interview with CNN's Jim Sciutto on "The Lead" that touched upon Trump's recent criticism of former President Bill Clinton's checkered past with women, the network's chief national security correspondent took to Twitter to ask a follow-up question.

In response, Pierson tweeted: "Made in #Texas! Real ammo. #2A Support your local small business owners! #Trump2016"

A tweet from Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, suggested the real reason Pierson wore the necklace.

"Surely @KatrinaPierson wore bullet necklace on #CNN to bring attention to 90 Americans fatally shot daily #gunsense," Watts tweeted.

Responding to that tweet, Pierson wrote:
