Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, a longtime Donald Trump ally and potential cabinet pick, is simply shocked that so many Americans are out protesting the president-elect before he even takes office.
CNN reports that Brewer appeared on KTAR News 92.3 FM Arizona radio, where she bashed many of the American citizens who were exercising their rights to protest their government. In particular, she took swipes at a group of protesters who waved Mexican flags at rallies and used it as proof that many of these demonstrators are disloyal to the United States.
“Obviously their allegiance isn’t to the United States, it was to Mexico,” she said, while also calling the protests “orchestrated” and “just awful.” “They’re not entitled to behave like that, I don’t believe. You know, people protest, it’s fine. A lot of them aren’t legal citizens and some of them are and they didn’t even vote and now they’re outraged. They could at least give him a chance.”
Brewer went on to sneer that a lot of the people who have been protesting Trump for the last week “obviously don’t have jobs” because otherwise how could they possibly find the time to exercise their first amendment rights?
“What day are we going on now, seven?” asked Brewer rhetorically. “And they’re still out there protesting. And obviously, I have even recognized a couple of people and the signs are the same signs that we’ve seen all seven days, practically. They obviously don’t have jobs, right? So what better things do they have to do? So they’re just out there marching away. And these kids that are leaving school. If I was the principal of that school, I’d lay down the law. This is outrageous. It’s just out of control.”
