AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Dana, what's your reaction to all of that? The left is freaking out about this, any surprises? 

DANA LOESCH (NRA SPOKESPERSON): No, not at all. And good morning Ainsley to you, and to the gentlemen there as well. This is shameless fearmongering. This is shameless fearmongering. And I love [California Senator] Kamala Harris's reference to God. Yes, please ask God what he thinks about your infanticide. Go ahead and ask him because I'm sure that that answer’s incredibly obvious. I love this idea that somehow, if you have Judge Brett Kavanaugh who is confirmed to the Supreme Court, that that means that women by some magical force field are going to be prevented from going and seeking health care. Because abortion is not health care, nor is it a constitutional right. We could go on and on about where it actually is and what could be considered at the federal level or the state level, but this is insanity. But this is all they have left. Honestly, going into 2020 with the messages of we're going to repeal your tax reform -- we think that your tax reform and all of the money that you've gotten back is crumbs -- abortion and impeach Trump, that's all that they have. That's what they're going into midterms with, that's what they're putting on the table for 2020. It's really embarrassing for this party to be this just, completely apoplectic and using this sort of rhetoric.
