Jenna Ellis: Trump’s supporters are choosing ‘idolatry’ over ‘the Constitution and the country’

During an appearance on the Blaze podcast, former Trump attorney Jenna Ellis doled out some harsh criticism of her former boss, saying that she can no longer support his run for the presidency.

“I know him well as a friend, as a former boss, I have great love and respect for him personally,” she said. “But everything that you just said resonates with me as exactly why I simply can’t support him for elected office again.”

“Why I have chosen to distance is because of that, frankly, malignant narcissistic tendency to simply say that he’s never done anything wrong,” she added.

“And the total idolatry that I’m seeing from some of the supporters that are unwilling to put the Constitution and the country and the conservative principles above their love for a star is really troubling.”

“And I think that we do need to, as Americans and as conservatives and particularly as Christians, take this very seriously and understand where are we putting our vote,” she concluded.

From CNN:

Jenna Ellis was censured by a disciplinary judge in Colorado Wednesday, in the latest effort to hold accountable attorneys who boosted former President Donald Trump’s 2020 election reversal gambits.

Ellis signed a stipulation stating that several comments she made about the 2020 election violated professional ethics rules barring reckless, knowing or intentional misrepresentations by attorneys, according to documents posted by Colorado’s Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel. As part of the stipulation, Ellis agrees to pay $224.
