CNN’s Stelter Grills Trump Spox About Her ‘Any Pure Breeds Left?’ Tweet
Yesterday Mediaite reported on the embarrassing (to put it mildly) Twitter history of Donald Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson. Just a reminder of some of the more choice ones that, as of this posting, are still up on Twitter:

Perfect Obama's dad born in Africa, Mitt Romney's dad born in Mexico. Any pure breeds left? #CNNDebate
— Katrina Pierson (@KatrinaPierson) January 20, 2012
That absolutely insane “pure breeds” one was pretty shocking to CNN’s Brian Stelter, and he confronted Pierson about it on Reliable Sources earlier today (after asking her about her past support of Ted Cruz).
Behold her entire response below:
STELTER: Would you like to retract that?
PIERSON: No, not at all. Look, 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 Twitter and even establishment, you go back at them in the same silliness they’re giving you. So I myself am a half-breed.
STELTER: You’re telling me that was just silliness?
Watch above, via CNN.
