If you have been following Jenna Ellis lately, you have probably noticed she has quickly risen to major popularity in the political space.
Yes, Jenna is one of President Trump’s most vocal supporters since entering his campaign as a legal advisor and supporter a year ago.
However, at the beginning of 2016 things were very different. She was one of his strongest opponents and actively opposed to his candidacy, according to CNN KFile’s analysis of comments she posted on her official Facebook page and Twitter and on local Colorado radio appearances.
Ellis, a prosecutor and retired Colorado law professor, regularly branded Trump as a “idiot,” who was “boorish and arrogant,” and a “bully” whose comments could not be believed to be factually correct. She called remarks that he had made about “disgusting people, and indicated that he was not a “real Christian.”
In one March 2016 Facebook post, Ellis said Trump’s values were “not American,” linking to a post that called Trump an “American fascist.” She praised Mitt Romney for speaking out against Trump, referring to him as “Drumpf,” — a nickname coined by comedian John Oliver after a biographer revealed Trump’s ancestor changed the family’s surname from Drumpf to Trump.
“Why should we rest our highest office in America, on a man who fundamentally goes back and forth and really cannot be trusted to be consistent or accurate in anything,” Ellis said in one April 2016 radio appearance.
And many on Twitter were quick to even post the actual tweet posts she made against Trump:
