Amy Kremer, who runs a women's group supporting Donald Trump, on Sunday asserted that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was a victim of a hex, which was put on him by witches.

During a Sunday segment on MSNBC, host Ali Velshi noted that Republicans have painted Democrats as "mobs" and "gangs."

"This has just shown up in the last couple of weeks aggressively in the president's rallies and in some other rallies by Republicans," Velshi said.

Kremer, a former tea party leader, defended Trump.

"I think -- the left -- there are mobs going on out there right now," Kremer insisted. "I mean, look at what happened to Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife, Heidi -- a mob running them out of a restaurant."

"[Democratic Congresswoman] Maxine Waters telling people that if you run across any of these Republicans congressmen or senators or people in the administration to harass them," she continued. "Get in their faces at gas stations. And people are doing that."

Kremer recalled to the panel that Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) was shot in 2017 while playing baseball.

"It is a scary time right now," Kremer opined. "Now you've got witches that are placing a hex on Brett Kavanaugh."

Kremer was mostly likely referring to a group of witches in Brooklyn who vowed to publicly place a "hex" on the Supreme Court justice. Kramer did not explain how the "hex" is equivalent to harassing Kavanaugh.

"It is concerning," she concluded. "This type of behavior is going on and its concerning to all Americans out there. As I said to you in the last segment, I have been a victim of these attacks."

Velshi reminded Kremer that most MSNBC hosts have also been targeted by conservative Trump supporters.

Kremer has also conveniently forgotten that most political violence done in this country is done by right wing extremists, not the left:

But the story that a wave of left-wing terrorism threatens America is wrong. The poster child for this false narrative is antifa, a small, weak organization that protests white supremacist aggression.

The real threat of violence comes from the right. The Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism reports that right-wingers and white supremacists were responsible for 74 percent of the murders committed by political extremists in the United States over the past decade. Only 2 percent were committed by left-wing radicals. Alex Nowrasteh, an immigration policy analyst at the libertarian Cato Institute, has calculated that “terrorists inspired by Nationalist and Right Wing ideology have killed about 10 times as many people as Left Wing terrorists since 1992."
