Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson has a long history of outrageously racist tweets

The Twitter feed of GOP front runner Donald Trump’s spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson, reveals a lot of questionable material, according to Mediaite.

The tweets go back years, but their content may come as no surprise, considering Pierson has defending Trump’s proposed ban of Muslim people from entering the United States by saying, “So what, they’re Muslim.”

During the 2012 election, in which Republican Mitt Romney faced off against an incumbent President Barack Obama, Pierson tweeted that both men were not “pure bred.”

She also tweeted that the choice for president that year was between a “Mormon or Jihadi.” Many on the right have accused Obama of secretly being a Muslim.

After wearing a necklace made of bullets on CNN in December, Pierson said she’d wear a fetus next time.

In 2013, she made another racist tweet, calling President Obama an outdated term used before the Civil Rights era.

Oddly, it seems Pierson supported Trump’s rival, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz before she was hired to do public relations for Trump.

Pierson responded to the debacle by implying the tweets had been made up — a strange position to take, Mediaite points out, because the tweets are still on her timeline.

Trump’s strategy against Joe Biden and the coronavirus is to increasingly accept defeat: columnist

Published

In an op-ed for the New York Times this Tuesday, Ross Douthat says that the Trump administration is beginning to see the writing on the wall as Election Day grows closer.

According to Douthat, Trump's 2020 campaign "has been stuck toggling back and forth between two very different narratives."

"One seeks to replay the last campaign, portraying Joe Biden as the embodiment of a failed establishment (hence all the references to his 47 years in Washington) who will sell out American interests to China as soon as he’s back in power," he writes.

The other is Trump apparently insistence in running against Joe Biden as if he's Bernie Sanders. While a skilled campaigner could have weaved these narratives together, their contradictions are more obvious when coming from Trump. "The resulting incoherence just feeds his tendency to return to old grudges and very online grievances, as though he’s running for the presidency of talk radio or his own Twitter feed," writes Douthat.

Trump declared war on mail-in voting — he ended up shooting himself in the foot

Published

Donald Trump's war on mail-in voting seems, like many of his schemes to steal the election, to be backfiring.

As much as he may publicly deny it, Trump knows he's unpopular and cannot win a free and fair election. So he has determined that the best way to hang onto power is to keep as many Americans from voting as possible. Since nearly the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Trump has been waging war against mail-in ballots, which many millions of Americans are using this year in order to avoid crowded and unsafe polling places.
