'Liberal Elitism': Pierson Rips Michelle Obama For Comparing Trump to Bad Parent
Former Trump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson blasted Michelle Obama for calling President Obama the "good parent" and President Trump "the other parent" in the Oval Office.
Contrasting the leadership of the two presidents, Mrs. Obama said President Obama was the country's "parent" who told you to "eat your carrots and go to bed on time," while Trump instead is the kind of "parent" who lets their children "eat candy all day and stay up late."

Pierson said Michelle Obama was exhibiting "liberal elitism on full display" with her remarks Thursday in Massachusetts.
She said she knows Trump is a good parent literally and figuratively because of the class and intelligence of the five Trump children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany and Barron.
She said the former first lady continues to "insult and demean the American people" for their vote, "without any accountability of her own."
Pierson remarked that the country possibly chose Trump because they listened to the Obamas and their 2008 warnings about Hillary Clinton.
Democratic strategist Antjuan Seawright disagreed, saying that real American parents shouldn't have to worry about their children seeing what shows up on the president's Twitter feed.
Pierson responded by saying that Mrs. Obama went so far as to doubt American parents' ability to choose the proper lunchtime foods for their kids.
