Katrina Pierson Ed Henry
Pierson who was the former Trump campaign spokesperson was in the middle of a brewing controversy that rose from Omarosa Manigault’s promotional book tour. The allegation was that the campaign was aware that a recording existed of Donald Trump using the “n-word,” ostensibly on the set of The Apprentice.
She had an appearance on the very same Fox News program and after she was challenged by Ed Henry on Omarosa’s account that she had admitted the tape existed she denied it. However, previously when Omarosa had shared a recording of a conversation about the alleged “n-word” tape she confirmed it really did exist.
In addition, when Henry replayed the clip, the discussion became heated especially for Pierson who is a Trump supporter. She dealt with the apparent inconsistencies of her story by raising a fog of multiple discussions and multiple recordings.
Pierson succeeded in providing enough confusing details of the allegations that ended up clouding her embarrassment, however, Henry won this round and deserves credit for holding his guest to account for her inconsistencies.
