The reality show candidate’s spox now has her own reality show.
Katrina Pierson, a national spokeswoman for Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, guest-starred in the late March premiere of a We tv series called “Sisters in Law.”
The series features powerful African-American female lawyers from Houston, and Pierson, 39, argues over race politics with them in a clip posted to YouTube by the network.
Pierson’s lawyer friend brought her to another woman’s house party in the episode, called “Rhonda Plays to Win.”
“I do political commentary for all the major networks — Fox News, MSNBC — and I love it,” Pierson said in the clip. “I get to go and debate anybody.”
Pierson, who is black, told other women at the party that black men founded the Republican party in Texas. Challenged that the party began in the state long ago during the Reconstruction era, Pierson brought up Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson’s passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
“LBJ didn’t give the great deal because he loved black people,” Pierson said.
Donald Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson guest-starred on the We tv reality show “Sisters in Law” March 24.
Rhonda Wills, a civil attorney who specializes in class action lawsuits, reminded Pierson she had conflated LBJ’s “Great Society” with President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “New Deal.”
“She is so dumb,” Wills said in the clip. “I’ve spent most of my career making sure that people’s rights that were given to them under the Civil Rights Act, that they actually have those rights, that they can utilize those rights. And this idiot comes into my house and she doesn’t even know what it is and she thinks it’s called the great deal?”
Another cast member felt sorry for Pierson, saying she looked “caught like a deer in headlights” and didn’t have a chance to respond. Pierson’s friend, criminal attorney Monique Sparks, said Wills’ onslaught against someone with differing views “pissed me off” because it was “almost like discrimination.”
“Being louder doesn’t make you right,” Pierson told Wills, who asked the conservative firebrand to leave. Pierson responded, “No, I think I’ll stay right here.”
Wills didn’t allow her to keep standing there.
“I’ve tolerated you, your ignorant opinions, your lack of education and your lack of knowledge on very basic things like the Civil Rights Act,” Wills said. “I’m now sick of hearing from you. And I want you to leave.”
Houston civil attorney Rhonda Wills corrected Pierson on the Civil Rights Act of 1964 at a party at Wills’ house in the episode.
Sparks and Pierson then left.
Pierson turned into a familiar figure as Trump climbed in the polls and began leading the race for the Republican nomination. She drew flak, though, when she wore a necklace made of bullets on CNN in late December. She responded to an anti-gun activist on Twitter to say she might “wear a fetus next time & bring awareness to 50 million aborted people.”
It’s not immediately clear when the TV show was filmed and neither We tv nor the Trump campaign responded to requests for comment. Pierson will appear on the show again in the April 7 episode, The Daily Beast reported.
She explained her reasons for turning into a Tea Party Republican then joining the Trump campaign in a preview clip obtained by the publication.
“I did grow up on welfare,” Pierson said. “Now, I’m a Republican because I survived the liberal system, the entitlement system, the redistribution of wealth system. Donald Trump’s my boy! I was with him at the debate and I’m defending him because he has a right to run in this race.”
