Katrina Pierson Defends Trump's 'Nasty Woman' Debate Comment in the Most Absurd Way Possible
As the Trump campaign spokesperson, Katrina Pierson has a tough job, especially before and after a debate, or basically any time Trump talks. After all, America knows it must have taken great skill to defend Trump's jarring remarks last night, including how he might not accept the election result, and calling Hillary Clinton a "nasty woman." But instead of getting "nasty," Pierson did what she does best: wildly spin away from Trump's actual words.
"Katrina, you said the focus should be on the issues but tonight Donald Trump outright called Hillary Clinton "such a nasty woman," is that kind of rhetoric really necessary for the debate stage?" Mediaite reporter J.D. Durkin asked Pierson in the spin room Wednesday night.
The comment had already generated a firestorm of activity on social media that night, quickly becoming one of the top trending phrases on Twitter that night. And while in nearly any other election, might be the highlight of the year, Pierson brushed it off.
"You're taking 10 seconds of an entire debate and that's that's what you get from that?" Pierson asked Durkin.
"Well, I think a lot of people are saying the focus should be on issues and there were certainly a lot of personal attacks," Durkin said in response.
"You didn't hear any of the issues?" she continued. "You didn't hear about Hillary Clinton lying on stage about whether or not she supported open borders are open trade, you hear any of that?"
But Durkin wasn't backing down.
"I did. I was just asking about the personal attacks. I know that's something that the campaign said he's looking to kind of get away from," the reporter reminded her.
Trump was just defending himself, the campaign spokesperson then claimed.
"He will also always defend himself and that is something that Mr. Trump has done from the beginning," Pierson told the reporter,.
"He did a phenomenal job talking about the issues," she added.
