Katrina Pierson, the national spokesperson for the Trump campaign, is notorious for saying rash and imprudent things on national television. For instance, last month on Fox News‘ The O’Reilly Factor, Pierson insinuated that her boss, Donald Trump, would not hesitate to use our “nuclear triad.”
“What good does it do to have a good nuclear triad if you’re afraid to use it?” Pierson said.
On Friday, conservatives and political reporters dug through her tweets and found a goldmine of foolishness. Mediaite collected some the the best of the bunch.
In 2009, she bragged about how smart she was by calling herself a “genious” [sic]:
Some of the tweets are actually disturbing — like the time she said Martin Luther King Jr. was too moderate for her. Malcolm X is more to her liking.
Pierson points to Malcolm X as a large source of her ideological founding, much like the leaders of Black Lives Matter do. Pierson has called the radical figure a hero and is open about her literal idolization of him, explaining that “MLK was too moderate for me.”
Like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and others on the left, Katrina Pierson used the 2012 trial of George Zimmerman over the death of Trayvon Martin to accuse conservatives of racism, lies, and “bigotry.”
Before all the facts of the case were even out, Pierson helped circulate a petitiondemanding George Zimmerman’s immediate arrest and encouraged her followers on Twitter to “Stand For Trayvon Martin.” Time and time again, Pierson sided with progressives and declared Martin’s death a murder, even accusing the police of lying to cover up the crime.
Donald Trump is currently trying to win over evangelicals. This is what what his spokesperson thinks of Christians:
During the 2012 election, Pierson slammed Christians as the, “First to name call and First to judge.” She later criticized not just Christians but religious believers as a whole, dismissing the majority of “religious types” as unable to “handle the truth.” A month later she criticized “most religious people” as hypocrites who follow a practice of “Do as I say not as I do.” After another month, she complained that it’s “always the Christians that are married or too old to party that tell you how [you] should be living your life. As if they were [saints].”
Here’s one where she antagonizes America’s largest Christian denomination:
Sad? As one Catholic priest fired back, “You bet we do!” It’s a basic tenet of the Catholic faith that Christ instituted the Church with Peter at its head, and conferred upon it his own divine authority. Catholics believe that their church is the only church that can claim to have been founded by Christ personally, as every other church traces its lineage back to a person such as Martin Luther or John Wesley.
He appointed Peter to be the visible head of the Church. Jesus said to Peter, “You are Rock and on this rock I will build my Church.” (Matthew 16: 18) Jesus said “build,” as in to create a structure. Jesus built His structure on specifically chosen human beings Peter and the apostles.
It’s one thing to not know the history of Christianity. It’s quite another thing to flout your ignorance on Twitter while insulting a key voting bloc. Does Donald know about this?
She also once tweeted about “a Jew” who stole someone’s girlfriend:
In 2012, this is how she described the general election:
This one is also from 2012:
What the what? “Pure breeds”?!
Even in the rough-and-tumble world of politics, it’s advisable be cautious about what you post on a public forum. People have lost their jobs over much less.
Pierson works for the Republican frontrunner in the race for president of the United States. Does The Donald know what his national spokesperson has been saying on Twitter?
Does he care? Maybe not.
