And as you know, I watch so you don’t have to, and even I couldn’t believe seeing a woman put on tampon earrings. Geez, Melissa, this is the sort of gift your producer gives you? What message does that send?
From Red Alert Politics:
It was all about accessorizing Sunday morning as MSNBC’sMelissa Harris-Perry made a fashion statement to make a political point. The latest Texas abortion regulations impacted Harris-Perry so much she decided to trade in her own red dangling earrings for tampons.
With her hair pulled back, the morning talk-show hostcasually removed her own earrings and replaced them with tampon earrings — supposedly a gift from her producer — without ever letting the substitution stop the flow of her show.
“You’ll remember that the Texas state legislature said that you couldn’t bring tampons in when they were going, these woman, to in fact stand up for their own reproductive rights. You weren’t allowed to initially bring tampons,” Harris-Perry told viewers while donning the tampon earrings during her show.
