Donald Trump's spokesperson is (possibly) more vile than he is

Meet Katrina Pierson, she's almost as grim as her boss.

Chances are you haven’t heard of Katrina Pierson. But you’ve definitely heard of her boss, could-be president of the United States Donald J Trump.

The frontrunner in the race to be crowned the official Republican presidential candidate - and go head-to-head with Democrat counterpart Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election – is well known for his spewings of anti-women sentiment, his plans to build a wall around Mexico and “make them pay”, and his frequent calls to ban Muslim immigration to America.

So far, so vile.

But his spokesperson, Katrina Pierson is arguably just as abhorrent.

We’ve already examined Trump’s grimmest statements, and now it’s Pierson’s turn. We’ve trawled through her rants with a fine toothcomb, and here’s what we found:

That time she responded to Trump’s Muslim ban with the comment: “So what? They're Muslim”.

That time she went on CNN wearing a necklace made of ammunition.

That time she mused over why there were no “pure breed” presidential candidates during the 2012 campaign.

A statement so horrific, when it was wheeled back out again this year, even Harry Potter author JK Rowling felt compelled to respond, tweeting: “Death Eaters walk among us.”

And let us not actually forget that time when she actually decided that working for Donald Trump was not just a good but a downright great idea.

She told Politico: “When Donald says, ‘I think you’re great, I really want you to work for me,’ I don’t think any sane person would say no to that.”

Absolutely no comment.
