Attorney Jenna Ellis, a senior legal adviser to President Donald Trump who has been appearing on TV to staunchly defend the defeated president’s desperate attempts to steal the 2020 election is now trying to explain her flip-flop after her previous statements about the president surfaced this week.
In a series of social media posts and radio interviews that CNN’s “KFile” unearthed this week, the lawyer described Trump as an “idiot” and a “bully” who “cannot handle criticism.” Ellis also slammed Trump’s supporters for not “seeking truth.”
Ellis acknowledged her previous antipathy to the president in a statement to CNN.
“I am glad to have learned that I was completely wrong about Trump back then and I’ve said that over and over publicly, as I saw him keeping his promises, and then eventually getting to know him personally,” she said.
“I appreciate KFILE showing clearly through past statements that I think for myself, and that my mind was changed based on fact and personal knowledge,” Ellis added. “President Trump is a sincere Christian, the best president in modern history, and made and kept his promises to the American people. I am proud to stand with him and his goals for the future of this country and all of its citizens.”
