Trump: Crime, Mental Health Contributes to Gun Violence

Donald Trump's National Spokeswoman Katrina Pierson wore a necklace made of bullets during an appearance on CNN Tuesday, drawing criticism on Twitter for the controversial sartorial choice.

In response to the outcry over her jewelry selection, Pierson said she could wear something even more controversial on her next television hit: a necklace made of fetuses.

Pierson's likely hyperbolic statement came in response to a tweet from Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

"Surely @KatrinaPierson wore bullet necklace on #CNN to bring attention to 90 Americans fatally shot daily #gunsense," Watts tweeted to her nearly 13,000 followers.

Pierson fired back at Watts.

After the response gained attention, Pierson attacked those who took her comment literally.

Shen went on to say those who disapproved of her fashion choice were sexist — a word that's been thrown at her boss, Trump, in recent days.

Pierson — a tea party activist — signed on as Trump's national spokeswoman in the fall.

She is known for her outspoken, and often controversial, comments.

In 2014, she ran a failed primary against Republican Rep. Pete Sessions in Texas, losing by a 27-point margin.
