This is how absolutely insane this election cycle is right now. I understand the criticism that many have regarding Mitt Romney. After all, it was Romneycare in Massachusetts that Obama used to argue for Obamacare. There is a huge difference between these two, however, in that one was done in the laboratory of the states and the other was forced upon the entire country through questionable tactics.
The one thing, however, that I never imagined hearing anyone being attacked over is their support of adoption. Yes, adoption, the very thing that saves an innocent human life, allows a child to be placed in a loving home and given an opportunity to thrive. But, that’s precisely what Trump national spokesperson Katrina Pierson did.
As she was obviously seething at 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s announcement that he will not be endorsing Trump, Pierson rattled off a slew of things presented as negatives for Romney.
“And he [Mitt Romney] was pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage, pro-adoption, gave us Obamacare and we were told to hold our noses and vote for the sake of the party.”
Katrina Pierson actually criticized Mitt Romney for being pro-adoption.
Let that sink in. Donald Trump’s official national spokesperson, Katrina Pierson, thinks ADOPTION is a bad thing and a good attack line. Incidentally, Romney has an adopted grandson who is black. Maybe Pierson was following the lead of MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry, who is no longer with the network, who took a jab at Romney’s adopted grandson in 2012. After all, Pierson did vote for Obama in 2008.
I know that Trump’s surrogates march in lockstep with him and will defend anything and everything that he says, even the most vile or questionable of statements, even his flip-flops and liberal leanings. They will defend “Mr. Trump” to the end, even if it requires lying.
But this latest attack by Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson is so disgusting and mindboggling that it shows how our culture has truly hit rock bottom.
The Blaze says they reached out to the Trump campaign for a statement but have heard no response.
Will they walk back that asinine attack by Pierson of Romney’s support of adoption or just ignore it hoping it will all blow over?
