During a combative interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday, Donald Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson questioned whether the candidate owed an apology to the parents of fallen soldier Humayun Khan and seemingly blamed President Obama and Hillary Clinton for his death, which occurred in 2004 under President Bush.
Most people are lucky to land one prominent role as a TV villain, but Katrina Pierson has two: Not only does she appear on cable news almost every night defending the unhinged, hateful words of her boss Donald Trump, she’s also somehow a cast member of “Sisters in Law,” a reality TV show about lawyers, I think.
Katrina Pierson, a woman paid by Donald Trump to make himself seem wise and composed by comparison, appeared on CNN to defend her employer saying “pussy” into a microphone on the campaign trail. Her reasoning is unimpeachable.
Katrina Pierson is an impressive figure, if only for her ability to out-batshit her employer, Donald Trump. She serves as a campaign spokesperson and talking head, frequently appearing on cable news to offer summaries of Trump’s, discriminatory policy proposals and his general hardline xenophobia and bigotry—which makes it, perhaps, a little funny that once she sued her boss for racial discrimination.
