Back in 2012, Donald Trump spokesperson and sentient ammunition display Katrina Pierson went on Twitter and publicly lamented what she called a lack of “pure breeds” in the U.S. presidential race.

Ostensibly, Pierson is somehow trying to imply that having a parent born overseas makes someone less American, or to put it in more menacing, eugenical terms, “less pure.” It’s also worth noting that Donald Trump’s mother was actually born in Scotland—though I can’t for the life of me figure out why she might have let that one slide (I can).

Pierson—who, like her boss, wants to ban all Muslims from being able to enter the U.S.—is also a big proponent of Donald Trump using America’s arsenal in some capacity (any capacity!), saying, “What good does it do to have a good nuclear triad if you’re afraid to use it?”

Four years before Pierson tweeted about the lack of pure breeds in American politics, she sued her employer for racial discrimination.

We’ve reached out to Pierson for comment on the tweet (which, at the time of publication, has yet to be deleted) and will update if and when we hear back.
