Donald Trump’s national campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson defended Sunday a tweet from 2012 in which she lamented that President Obama and Mitt Romney aren’t “pure breeds.”
“Perfect Obama’s dad born in Africa, Mitt Romney’s dad born in Mexico. Any pure breeds left? #CNNDebate,” Ms. Piersontweeted on Jan. 19, 2012, as the then-GOP candidates took the debate stage in South Carolina.
Confronted with the tweet Sunday on CNN, Ms. Piersonargued that she’s a “half-breed” and was simply using the same “silliness” that others use when attacking her.
