NRA launches campaign to take on Trump critics


Before the election, there was #NeverTrump. And now that Donald Trump is the POTUS, the National Rifle Association (NRA) is pushing back against Trump’s critics with their own campaign dubbed #CounterResistance:

The National Rifle Association, whose early endorsement bolstered Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, is arming up again to attack the president’s critics in the media, on Capitol Hill and in Hollywood.

“Already, the forces that conspired to keep Donald Trump out of the White House are coming together to sabotage his administration,” said NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre. “Donald Trump will need every ounce of energy we can muster and he has no more powerful ally than the NRA.”

The campaign targets anti-gun, anti-Trump politicians and celebrities including Minnesota Sen. Al Franken and actress Ashley Judd, who once said that Trump bathes “in Cheetos dust.”

LaPierre will unveil his war on Trump’s critics during his speech Friday at the annual CPAC conference.
