Appearing on “The Lead,” Pierson told CNN’s Jim Sciutto, standing in for Jake Tapper, that Trump attacking former President Bill Clinton for his past sexual misconduct in office is “fair game” ahead of Bill hitting the trail to stump for Hillary in January.
Responding to criticism for the fashion choice after the show, Pierson tweeted:
Maybe I'll wear a fetus next time& bring awareness to 50 million aborted people that will never ger to be on Twitter https://t.co/UTomoyYXLK

In a later tweet, Pierson said of her remarks: "of course it will be interpreted literally. Never min [sic] the point being made. Smh." In response to a follow up tweet about the necklace from Sciutto, Pierson said the necklace was made of real ammunition by a local small business owner in Texas
Pierson, a frequent Trump proxy on cable news, has previously made headlines for her impassioned defense of the billionaire real estate mogul. In an appearance on CNN earlier this month, she defended Trump’s proposed ban on Muslim immigration with “So what? They’re Muslim.”
In a newly resurfaced 2008 interview, Trump called Clinton’s sex scandal in office “totally unimportant," but said Tuesday night his own “personal indiscretions” would also be fair game in the 2016 race.
