MSNBC’s Roberts to Trump Spox: ‘Is Your Boss a Narcissist?’

roberts piersonMSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts grilled Donald Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson this afternoon over Trump’s attacks on Ted Cruz and his general narcissistic behavior.

Trump has been making hay over potential problems with Cruz’s citizenship, and Roberts pointed out today that similar attacks by Trump against President Obama on the issue of birthplace “backfired” in a big way four years ago.

Pierson insisted that since Democrats might try to make this an issue, it’s important for Cruz’s status be settled lest he “be tied up in a lawsuit.” Pierson––who used to be a huge Cruz supporter––said there are plenty of issues Cruz is vulnerable on that Trump could go after him on instead of this.

Roberts also brought up a comment someone made about Trump loving the attention and bluntly asked, “Is your boss a narcissist?”

Pierson dismissively said Trump talks about the country and making America great again a lot more than he talks about himself.
