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.

    Her remark was ill advised. There aren’t any pure bred people here, even the majority of Indians have become watered down to some degree. It’s easy to forget all of us are decedents of immigrants and part of the world wide blending of peoples. As far as a natural born citizen goes, that has already been defined. People just like having something to debate in the hope that they can bolster their political position.

    Well I can understand with what she is saying in regards to this here. After all look what we’ve got currently in the white house. A communist Muslim that cares more for the Muslims then he does for his own country. Time to shut the borders down and deport all illegals. No more free handouts to get anything in the US welfare, food stamps, WIC, housing or jobs, SS or Disability they must be US citizens and be put through e-verify. Believe me most will self deport.
