While speaking with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Donald Trump campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson seems to have unwittingly admitted that Trump is far too stupid to become president.
How so? So glad you asked.
Pierson has had to go on countless times on different media outlets to defend or “explain” what Donald Trump actually means when he says something outrageous. It’s her job to smooth things over and let everyone know that, no, he’s not insane, he just sounded insane, we can trust him.
However, not this time. Jake Tapper brilliantly got her into a corner on Trump’s remarks that “Second Amendment people” should stop Hillary Clinton. Clearly insinuating that she should be killed.
“What exactly was Mr. Trump saying?”
Pierson idiotically replied:
“Mr. Trump was saying exactly what he said.”
“Hillary Clinton is a gun grabber! Everyone knows if she’s in a position to appoint Supreme Court justices, she will do everything she can to remove the second amendment.”
Which didn’t answer Tapper’s question at all, and merely reiterated what everyone has already been thinking, and that is that Trump was calling for the assassination of Clinton.
Pierson also stated:
“So this is very important in November, if you care about your second amendment rights to get out there and vote.”
But Tapper, not falling for the clear pivot, followed up with this:
“But he was talking about what second amendment activists could do to stop her ‘if-she-won,’ to stop her form appointing a gun control nominee – it wasn’t about November – it’s after November.”
So Pierson tried to again force the pivot, and said:
“That’s actually not what he was talking about.”
However, it was exactly what he was talking about. Trump made a very, very clear insinuation that folks in love with the Second Amendment should take Clinton out.
So, she’s either admitting that Trump is too stupid to know what he’s saying when he says it, OR she’s admitting that he meant what he said and is actually calling for the assassination of Hillary Clinton. Either way, it’s not good for Trump.
And clearly I’m not the only one to notice this:
Trump spokesperson on CNN denying Trump should be held responsible because he is "inarticulate at times" and not a professor in "grammar."

So, basically, he’s too dumb to be president.
