Former Trump staffer: Conservative media ‘brainwashed’ me into hating Democrats

On CNN Wednesday, Jessica Denson, the former coordinator of the Trump 2016 campaign’s Hispanic outreach who starred in a recent ad for Joe Biden, opened up about how she was taken in by the Trump campaign — and why he must be defeated.

“My motive to go and help that campaign and be of service to the American people was sabotaged, and I’ve seen my experience repeated in the experience of one public servant after another over the past four years,” said Denson, who spearheaded a lawsuit to free former Trump campaign officials from nondisclosure agreements. “I have seen that this campaign continues to go out brandishing a Bible and an American flag and claiming that they have anything to do with freedom, but I’ve lived first-hand that they have nothing to do with freedom. They have worked very much against free speech and democracy.”

When asked about Trump's constant Mexican/Immigrant bashing, Denson replied:

“I tell them it’s a fair perspective,” said Denson. “But I spent the better part of eight years watching conservative media, being brainwashed into thinking the Democrats were really dangerous and were going to take away our freedoms, which I don’t believe anymore. I understand how deeply mesmerized I was into that false narrative. And I thought that Donald Trump was going to be a fighter for the American people. So I kind of put the best construction on everything he said and — father forgive me — believed him in his con, that he was going to put his own interest aside and be a public servant for this country.”
