Kirsten Gillibrand Got Called Out Big Time for Flip-Flopping!

Sen Kristen Gillibrand, D-New York, is close by the bottom of the large pack of Democratic presidential candidates in every poll taken.

Gillibrand hoped that by addressing a national audience on a Fox News Townhall she could change her fortunes. She failed going out the gate, stumbling and ranting her way through the gun issue.

Gillibrand started the Townhall with a rant against the National Rifle Association. She apparently believed that the NRA is the most malignant organization in the United States, reveling in its blood-soaked profits that it garners by opposing “common sense” gun control laws.

The NRA is apparently worse than ISIS or MS-13. One would think that by the way the senator talked, it was in favor of late-term abortion, government-run health care, and the Green New Deal.

Chris Wallace, who was moderating the Townhall and is one of FNC’s greatest treasures, was taking note of what Gillibrand was saying.

Then he pounced.

Noting that none of the “common sense” gun control measures Gillibrand proposed would have stopped the recent massacre in Virginia Beach, he added, “Your campaign slogan is ‘Brave Wins,’ but when you [represented] a conservative district…you took pretty conservative positions on guns…once you became the Senator for the entire liberal state of NY, you flipped. How is that brave?”

He went on to note that the flip flop seemed to be “more about politics than principles.”

Gillibrand, who was unable to give a coherent answer, had made one crucial mistake that as an experienced politician she should not have made.

She did not think that Chris Wallace, who has spent years interviewing politicians, had done his homework on her career and previous positions.

Wallace knew before the Townhall had started that Gillibrand had been a warm supporter of the NRA before she had been elected to statewide office in deep blue New York.

The senator should have known that the matter would be brought up and thus concoct a story about how she had gotten an epiphany about how horrible private firearms are and what a terrible organization the NRA is.

She also would not have stated as she did that the NRA sells firearms. It does not and is a fact that is easily checked.

Gillibrand’s woes did not end with having humiliated herself on national television. The NRA, no doubt miffed by the senator’s accusations, dug out a 2008 letter from the then-congresswoman praising the organization that she now thinks is the worse in the country.

According to Fox News:

“Gillibrand, according to the NRA, sent the letter to NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox on Sept. 19, 2008, when she was a member of Congress representing a rural district in upstate New York. The ILA, or Institute for Legislative Action, is the lobbying arm of the NRA.

“’I want to be very clear that I always have and always will believe that the correct interpretation of the 2nd amendment [sic] is that it applies to an individual’s right to carry guns, and does not apply generally to the National Guard or a group of individuals in a State,’ Gillibrand wrote to Cox, following what she described as a meeting with him the previous August.

“Gillibrand, in the letter, went on to reject a slew of gun control measures, saying she was “adamantly opposed” to the idea ‘outright banning firearms for cosmetic features, bullets of an [sic] random size, or banning magazines from holding an arbitrary number of cartridges.’

“Those limitations, she said, were ‘random’ and intended solely to ‘limit gun ownership or usage.’

“Gillibrand concluded: ‘I appreciate the work that the NRA does to protect gun owners rights, and I look forward to working with you for many years.’”

The NRA suggested that the senator’s rant was a desperate attempt to crack how one percent rating in the polls.

It is safe to say the Kristen Gillibrand is not going to break up to the top tier because of her cringe-worthy performance. She is not going to be President of the United States, a fact that the smart money was on even before she appeared on Fox News.

Gillibrand’s experience demonstrates that if a politician making his or her case is to be exposed to a national audience, he or she has to make sure of one of two things.

First, make sure that the interviewer is friendly. Chris Wallace will not give anyone softballs. Failing that, Gillibrand should have been more prepared.

She failed and is now paying the price.

  13. And here folks, is the difference between a career Politician, and a sharp minded and successful Businessman used to achieving and getting results! Politicians flip flop according to their audience! President Trump has remained true to his principles going back over 30 years and there are plenty of evidence floating around the Internet to prove it!

  14. I live and vote in up state New York and wouldn’t vote for this bitch for any reason, in fact I wish she would be voted out of office… nut then I live in New York with all the morons who vote for democrat assholes.

  15. Just another sleazy politician saying whatever she feels will get her elected. Glad you got your comeuppance and hope you get voted out for your scandalous behavior. Don’t you politicians realize your past is just lurking behind you ready to pounce. Ha, ha, you sure know it now!

  16. Wallace a regestered Demo/Lib should have cut her short when she degraded FOX Buisness News when she is using Fox news.

  17. Like most democrats, who, by the way, are not democratic in any way shape or form, live by the lies they create, and then wind up believing them. That way they can preserve their motives, no matter what the cost.
    Never mind what Gillibrand said in 2008.
    Remember, this is get Trump year, no matter what the cost. She will regret what she has said in the past. They all change their story so many times, they should adopt a secretary just to keep track of the lies/stories they tell depending on which way the wind blows.

  18. The NRA is the most respected organization in the United States. I have been a member for over 30 years.

    I am a retired Air Force Veteran and a retired former High School Teacher.

    I had been the moderator for the Gun Safety Club at Wyoming Valley West High School, while I and another

    teacher friend assisted me in teaching the young students gun safety.

    We were both certified members of the NRA, whose safety is our and their main concern.

    We have never had a problem, and the students admired the club.

  19. I don’t have much for either of them. But this situation only LOUDLY demonstrates the hypocrisy of The Left. If only Chimpanzees lived in a particular neighborhood in her district, you can bet she would be donning a Gorilla suit to visit and campaign there. Wallace, on the other hand, is MSM all the way. He’s only on FN because Disney bought ’em and wants to lean left as is THEIR own charter. He thinks he’s the sharpest tool in the shed, and antagonizes when trying to generate ratings. He ain’t his dad, but he’s posing. BTW: There isn’t ONE Lefty running for the primary who’s honest, intelligent and executive. Nary a ONE. It’s not going to be a fair fight in October, 2020. And I can’t wait. God Bless America! God Bless The Founders for enacting a Republic! M.A.G.A.

  20. Always a bad idea when running for potus is to attack the constitution. I say let her say what ever she wants, it’s not going to matter anyway. 45 million people will disagree with her, except maybe islam, because they want to disarm America for sharia law.

  21. Gillibrand has flipped every time her ratings slip! She is not honest or ethical. Typical New York senator!

  22. Let the circus clowns running for the socialist nomination for president keep trying to spew their propaganda. The American people aren’t as ignorant as the socialist Democrats think they are. 2020 is going to be a political slaughter at the ballot box and they won’t know what hit them because the believe their own rhetoric and propaganda.

  23. Kristin Gillibrand is NOTa Presidential type, she is too wishy washy, does not have any”pizzazz about her, she doe snot know our goverment. She should not be running for President when she doe snot know the history of the USA. how our country runs as a Republic, and would be a very weak person, as she has been in Congress. She can do her leftist wing stuff on Communists in disguise and they want power, but do not care about the Constitution. Let her fall flat on her face–right along with HillaryKillary, and that broad Elizabeth Warren who has nothing to offer!!or Amy Klobhard who treats her staff like dirt—-low down class people. Sorry but everyone weknow feels the same way, Trump is strong and trying to bring this country back to life, to being prosperous, and not Socialistic or Communistic. AMEN

  24. Beautiful article and Bravo to Mr . Chris Wallace for exposing her !
    I personally thank him and also have much respect for him .

  25. All these people running should have to step down from any other position they hold . Too many just see it as a “vacation” on the donors dime so they can travel around at others expenses and hear themselves talk . She Cleary Knows she doesn’t stand a chance in hell and she’s absent for her other Duties ! Everyone running on the left have gone Soo far left they don’t have a chance !

  26. I learned more re gun safety and how to shoot from the NRA than I did in the military. Their sole purpose here is teaching and protecting our Rights, which liberal democrats would remove if they could. Remember the supposed words Isoroku Yamamoto, Fleet Admiral and Commander-in-Chief of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) during World War II who went to school in US, ” I fear all we have done” is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”

    And this statement: “You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.”

    True or not the point is civilians have more weapons and ammunition than most armies. The reason we have 2A is to protect 1A. Never, ever allow the government to remove your protection, otherwise you will be fodder like in Germany, in Russia, in China, in Cuba and in Venezuela.

  27. 1 crashes down, 25 or so more to follow. Biden will be the only one left standing, which will be great and easy for Trump to roll over easily in 2020. MAGA 2020!!

  28. Chris went to easy on her. He should have called her a hypocrite on the air

  29. Just another dum Demoncommie they are all crazy!!!!

  30. She may find an opening scrubbing the floors in the White House! She is a traitor!
