On Friday, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson, targeted former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney for being "pro-adoption."
This is an extremely bizarre attack on a couple of levels. One, is there a candidate who is not pro-adoption? Two, Romney has an adopted grandchild. Was this the intent of the attack, or was this a slip-up?
Romney was targeted by Pierson following the former nominee's public refusal to support Trump.
The spokeswoman, who has been known to make a few gaffes, lamented the former governor's moderate record--which is insanely ironic coming from a woman representing Trump, a man who claimed to be a Republican five minutes ago.
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," complained Pierson.
Pierson's argument is comical relative to Trump's ever-changing positions. The businessman previously stated that he was pro-gay marriage and even pro-abortion in "every respect"--citing his New York values. And how about Obamacare? During a Republican presidential debate, Trump cited single-payer healthcare as a commendable model for the United States.
“These same people are now telling us that because their guy didn’t win, they want to hurt the party,” she continued, trying to make a case for a candidate with record-setting unfavorables.
"Is there a candidate who is not pro-adoption?
Clearly, Pierson's attempt to limn Romney as far more Left-leaning than Trump as a rationale for supporting Trump is severely flawed. To boot, the spokeswoman tripped up with her essentially nonsensical lamentation over a "pro-adoption" position.
