On Tuesday, the presidential candidate Donald Trump was equated to America’s Founding Fathers. His spokesperson, Katrina Pierson, attributed this to his candidness, mainly for uttering the word, ‘’p*ssy’’ while campaigning recently. She is of the opinion that what Trump said at the occasion, shows a competitive and fun spirit reminiscent of the old political rivalries that date back to the years of the Founding Fathers.
In a comment aimed at Ted Cruz, during a rally in Manchester held on Monday, the presidential candidate humored a member of the audience, who had aired her views about Cruz. Employing a somewhat clever remark, Trump chimed, ‘’She said he’s a pussy. That’s terrible,’’ which went down well with his enthusiasts. Pierson related Trump’s discourse with the Manchester audience to CNN host Alisyn Camerota. She described the manner in which Trump was speaking, ‘’like he’s at a friend’s house.’’ Pierson also dismissed the event as nothing peculiar saying, ‘’When we look at the Founding Fathers and when they were competing, they said far worse things about each other,’’ adding, ‘’This is not nothing [sic] new. This is politics.’’
Host Camerota, not to be outdone, interjected, ‘’But isn’t there a difference between political correctness and vulgarity?’’ To this, the adamant spokesperson responded, ‘’The line to me is free speech, the First Amendment,’’ and continued on to say, ‘’What I’m saying is it’s free speech, and this is the Live Free or Die state. Mr. Trump is exercising his free speech, it was fun with the audience.’’
