Doug Burgum campaign staffer Jacky Arness must have forgotten who her boss is, because yesterday she posted on Facebook a story criticizing Republican leaders who refuse to condemn Donald Trump and his sexism.
She shared the story along with the comment, “To many of my fellow CONSERVATIVE women … this is for us.”
Arness’s boss, the Republican candidate for ND governor, is an enthusiastic Trump endorser and supporter. Burgum has not addressed the video that emerged last week showing Trump talking about grabbing women “by the pussy.”
Arness, a former Miss North Dakota, has worked for the Burgum campaign basically since it started earlier this year. The story she shared was about a viral series of tweets by a woman named Marybeth Glenn, who criticizes Republicans for failing to call out Trump’s misogyny. One tweet reads, “If you can’t stand up for women & unendorse this piece of human garbage, you deserve every charge of sexism thrown at you.”
We’ve been calling out Burgum for his Trump endorsement, but it’s nice to hear that one of his own staffers shares our sentiment.
Here’s Arness’s post:
