How to turn a campaign into the perfect machine for hate: Hire ignorant people.
Katrina Pierson is the perfect face of the Trump campaign. A woman with no respect for women who calls herself a “half-breed” with no respect for minorities and an IQ slightly lower than the average temperature of Juno, Alaska is exactly what a campaign pandering to stupid people deserves.
There’s been quite a bit of talk lately about Katrina Pierson history. Her tendency to relive things according to what the voices in her head tell her rather than what really happened has been so absurd it earned its own hashtag. This is one of my favorites:
Before Frank Leahy died he came across a young boy making fun of poor kids at a shelter. He told him ‘Egotism is the anesthetic that dulls the pain of stupidity,’ forever changing the boy’s life. A few short years later he was feeding thousands of people with a single fish and forgiving the sins of mankind. #KatrinaPiersonHistory.
That along with hundreds if not thousands of other examples of people making fun of this unbelievable nitwit can be found laid out all across social media. She’s made herself the easiest target of all time with such ludicrous statements as “Afghanistan was Obama’s war.”
As it turns out, history remembers her just fine. Like the times she disrespected herself and her president with these full-racist Twitter comments:
Pierson has rigorously defended herself on the issue, telling CNN:
These tweets — I’m an activist and I am a half-breed. I’m always getting called a half-breed. And on Twitter when you’re fighting with liberals and even establishment, you go back at them in the same silliness they are giving you. So, I myself am a half-breed. We have entered silly season. Donald Trump is up in the polls. There’s desperate campaigns out there, they can’t take him down so they try to take down the people that are around him. And we’re just not going to get distracted by all that nonsense.”
Here’s the CNN segment:
Of course she’s always getting called a half-breed. She works in a campaign full of assholes pandering to white privilege. The only reason she’s there is because of the tint of her skin, her gender and how gullible she is. It’s difficult to find a woman of color willing to sell out to such stupidity, and Stacey Dash wasn’t available.
Pierson is the perfect punchline to the joke that is the Trump campaign.
