Trump Spox: Our Supporters Condemning Attacks on Judge ‘Don’t Have the Facts’
Some of Donald Trump‘s most ardent supporters are among those condemning his racially-tinged attacks on a Hispanic judge, and on CNN earlier tonight, Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson basically scolded their campaign’s own supporters for speaking out on the case.
Pierson told Wolf Blitzer, “They don’t know the details… They don’t know the facts, and they came out because the media pressure was intense and they started condemning these comments without knowing anything.”
She defiantly said that Trump would not “back down” in the face of media attacks, and actually, seriously made the case that it’s the media who’s making this about race, not Trump (the person who first invoked, without prompting, the judge’s heritage).
Blitzer pointed out the fact Trump is the one engaging in racially-charged attacks. Pierson snarked, “I understand that’s what the media wants to continue to report.”
