On Monday, Donald Trump’s campaign spokesperson Katrina “fetus neckless” Pierson was on CNN trying to defend her boss’s racist attack against the federal judge presiding over the Trump University lawsuit when she made a rather unusual comparison. She equated graduating from Trump University to finishing Harvard.
Last week during a rally in California, Trump took time out of his hour-long speech to go after Judge Gonzalo Curiel for presiding over a class-action lawsuit against Trump University. Many of former students feel that Trump University cheated them out of thousands of dollars.
I think Judge Curiel should be ashamed of himself. I think it’s a disgrace that he’s doing this,” Trump said. “The judge, who happens to be, we believe, Mexican…I think the Mexicans are going to end up loving Donald Trump.

Later on Friday, Judge Curiel alluded to Trump’s comments before dealing the billionaire a huge blow in court. The judge ordered the release of over 150 sealed pages related to Trump University, against the wishes of Trump’s counsel.
CNN host Alisyn Camerota ask Pierson to explain her boss’s comments regarding Judge Curiel’s ethnicity:
Katrina, ‘We believe he’s Mexican,’ what is that?” Camerota asked.
Pierson then made this jaw-dropping statement:
Well I think there’s two parts to this Alisyn, First, you know. Trump University, where classes being taught to people. And it’s like saying if you graduate from Harvard and you don’t have the same outcome in your profession as everyone else, you should sue Harvard. And that’s just simply absurd.
Let’s just pause and take a moment to commemorate this great moment in the Trump campaign’s long history of asinine comments with a small facepalm parade for Ms. Pierson.
Camerota seized the opportunity to make Pierson defend the case:
All sorts of things were over promised,” the CNN host interrupted, “that Donald Trump was going to playing a more active role than he was, that there was more of a rate of job success than really was true.
Instead of answering the question, Pierson took that opportunity to dig a bigger hole by doubling down on Trump’s racist attack on a federal judge:
“I think what is really interesting about this particular judge — as Mr. Trump refers to him as a Trump hater — is he even mentions on his judicial questionnaire that he was a La Raza lawyers association member. This is an organization that has been out there organizing these anti-Trump protesters with the Mexican flags, they are pushing it, these signs have been very apparent,” Pierson replied.
And so, Mr. Trump is just stating the obvious,” she added.
“But this judge isn’t Mexican,” Camerota shot back. “He was born here. He’s American.”
“I’m not saying he’s Mexican,” Pierson insisted.
“But Mr. Trump is saying he’s Mexican,” Camerota pressed.
“He says we ‘believe’,” Pierson insisted.
“But what’s the point of that? Why is he going after an ethnicity?” Camerota wondered.
Pierson again blamed the “anti-Trump protests with their Mexican flags and La Raza.”
“And this judge is connected to that,” she said.
“Okay, but you recognize — you’re saying Mr. Trump was wrong,” Camerota observed.
“I don’t know if he’s Mexican,” Pierson quipped. “I don’t know his heritage or his descent.”
“Okay, for the record, he’s American,” the CNN host said, concluding the interview.

Students who graduate from Harvard are not guaranteed a successful career, however in order for those students to be accepted into the school, they must have extraordinary academic credentials and be success driven.
While there may be a few McDonald’s managers with Harvard degrees, it’s far more likely to find Trump University graduates in those positions with their degrees proudly buried deep within in their closets.
