Katrina Pierson Gets Blistered By CNN Guest As 'Black Who Gets Paid By Trump To Clean His Mess'

Katrina Pierson, Trump's spox, got schooled this morning for trying to stick up for Trump's not refuting white supremacist endorsements. It didn't end well for her.

Since Donald Trump refused to distance himself from David Duke and the KKK, he's enduring another round of criticisms from all sides of the aisle.

During Jake Tapper's Sunday interview, Trump made believe he didn't know who David Duke was or any white supremacists. Then this morning he made up a story on The Today Show, saying he had a very bad earpiece and didn't uderstand what he was being asked.

On CNN this morning, Carol Costello had on Trump Spox Katrina Pierson, his flamboyant apologist and Republican strategist, Tara Setmayer to discuss the issue at length. Pierson started off by saying that Trump did distance himself from David Duke, and to say it got heated is putting it mildly.

Tara called out Trump's previous anti-black statements and then said Pierson is one of the blacks" the real estate mogul employs to "clean up his mess."

“We aren’t even talking about Donald Trump’s questionable history with race back to when the DOJ sued the Trump organization for racial discrimination,” Setmayer noted.

“Or when Donald Trump came out and said how much he loves — quote — ‘the blacks’ or we can go down the list of very questionable things Donald Trump has said.”

“But I don’t know,” the GOP strategist quipped, snapping her fingers. “Maybe Katrina Pierson is one of the blacks he likes since he pays her to clean up his mess everyday on television.”
