WATCH: Jake Tapper Shuts Down Katrina Pierson on Islamophobia - citizen slant

On Tuesday, Donald Trump’s national spokesperson Katrina Pierson appeared for an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper regarding vice presidential nomninee Mike Pence’s refusal to call David Duke deplorable.

Mr. Pence’s response came when he appeared on CNN’s ‘The Situation Room’ and when pressed by Wolf Blitzer, Pence refused to call David Duke deplorable because he claimed that he was not “in the name-calling business.” This is the latest in the back and forth between the two presidential campaigns which started last week, when at a fundraiser, Hillary Clinton called half of Donald Trump’s supporters fall into a ‘basket of deplorables.’

On Tuesday, Tapper raised the fact that many white nationalists, and members of the Alt Right were pointing to Pence’s response as something of a victory. Pierson then launched into what has become commonplace for her in interviews where she makes claims, many of which are patently false, and will not concede on any issue, no matter how trivial or how substantiated.
