Trump Spox Dismisses History of Sexist Comments: Those Were ‘Made As a Television Character’
Donald Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson argued on Fox News that a new Super PAC ad highlighting many of Trump’s sexist comments wouldn’t made any waves because some of the comments were made while he was on The Apprentice.
“We have seen even the attack ads, the War on Women issue, and everything else that liberals throw at Republicans, we’re seeing establishment Republicans do exact same thing,” she argued Tuesday.
Fox host Martha MacCallum quizzed Pierson on that War on Women issue. “There is an ad that just came out that strings together women who are speaking words that Donald Trump has said about women. It’s getting a lot of play on the internet,” she noted.
“I really don’t think this is going to be a problem,” Pierson responded. “A lot of those statements [are] what Mr. Trump made as a television character. So I don’t think that some of that is going to stick.”
Only one of the sexist comments highlighted in the campaign ad was actually from The Apprentice series. “It must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees,” Trump told model Brande Roderick on Celebrity Apprentice.
