Republican establishment hack Ben Ferguson attacked Trump spokesperson over Trump’s “sick and vile” fundraiser for wounded veterans.
The fireworks were exploding early on Thursday morning ahead of the Fox News Republican debate, which frontrunner Donald Trump has repeatedly said he will not attend. On New Day, CNN Political Commentator Ben Ferguson duked it out with Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson, eviscerating the spox in the process on the perceived hypocrisy of suddenly doing an event for the veterans when it’s politically advantageous.

“This is a sick and vile move by a guy who likes to throw those words around: Donald Trump,” said Ferguson to host Chris Cuomo, who did his best to moderate the scuffle with Pierson. “To use Wounded Warriors and their true battle scars to his political advantage, I would say this to Katrina: I’m not dumb enough to buy that this is about the veterans, because Donald Trump has never held an event for the veterans on his campaign.”
Ben Ferguson is a GOP hack and CNN contributor – and the latest GOP Trump-basher to go public.
