Watch: Trump Spokesperson Katrina Pierson's Insane Explanation of Why Republicans Dislike Her Boss

With Trump as the GOP presumptive nominee, some Republicans are vowing to stay home on election day. But Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson told MSNBC that the Trump campaign isn't too worried about the party division because this phenomenon isn't unique to the 2016 election. 

"Even though these Republicans say they won’t support Donald Trump, we ran into this two cycles ago—these same Republicans who were pushing the ‘constitutional conservative’ message—which really hasn’t been viable since 1989 when the party stopped governing that way," Pierson told MSNBC on Wednesday. 

So how does Pierson believe Republican candidates have changed since?

"Bush #1 raised taxes, gave us the Clean Air Act of 1990, created NAFTA, that Bill Clinton ultimately signed. Bush #2 did worse. He gave us 'No Child Left Behind,' the Wall Street bailouts, eviscerated the Constitution with the Patriot Act. These are also not extremely conservative issues, but the party came together behind them," she explained. 

And even more recently, there were nominees Pierson was wary of.

"I didn’t want to vote for McCain and his conservative review scorecard is an 'F,'" the spokesperson admitted, and added, "Not just any 'F,' but a 37 percent.”
