The kid who went from being a Republican to being a socialist (Bernie Sanders supporting) Democrat is now a Republican again, and he is back for money. CJ Pearson, the 12-year-old (now 13-year-old) former “conservative wiz kid,” who embarrassed conservatives after he “denounced conservatism” on CNN, is now scamming Trump supporters. This comes after he completely bashed the presidential candidate on MTV news, and called Trump voters “stupid.”
Pearson wrote a column for the entertainment network on December 16, 2015, titled, “I’M 13 AND DONALD TRUMP BECOMING PRESIDENT SCARES THE CRAP OUT OF ME.”
“I laugh at a lot of things, ” Pearson wrote on MTV.com. “I laugh at cute puppies chasing their tails; furry cats falling down stairs. Man, I even laugh at the ceiling sometimes (yes, I’m honestly that weird). Six months ago, I used to laugh at Donald Trump. However, I’ve stopped laughing. This is because in the past few weeks, this originally hilarious joke has taken a turn for the worse. It’s taken a turn towards fear-mongering. A turn towards hate. And a turn towards blanket racism and blatant Islamophobia. Donald, the joke is over. I’m not laughing anymore and the American people aren’t laughing anymore.“
He went on to accuse Trump of being a racist and misogynist.
“First, he called Latino immigrants criminals and rapists. But instead of backtracking, he didn’t just double down — he tripled down. He went on to say on CNN’s ‘The Situation Room’ to Don Lemon that ‘somebody’s doing the raping, Don! I mean someone’s doing the raping.'” “When you’re auditioning to become president of the United States, these comments are not OK. Next time, he should leave his sexism at the door.“
He also accused Trump of helping ISIS.
“This past week, the bad turned worse. And the worse became downright dangerous. Donald Trump unveiled his proposal to stop all Muslim immigration into our country. Usually, Donald would blame the media for twisting his words. However, this time he couldn’t. He released this plan in a form of a press release. So, there it was, in black and white. And there he was — doing ISIS’s job for them.“
Pearson then called Trump supporters “stupid.”
“Needless to say, this thought scares the crap out of me. I’m scared not only for myself, but also for my generation and the future of our great nation. But honestly, his ascension begs the question: Do people not know how bad Donald Trump is or do they just not care? I hope it’s the former because you can help ignorance, but you can’t fix stupid.“
He also published an article attacking Trump, as recent as last week on The Huffington Post!
Pearson has a history of scamming conservatives, most memorably last year when he partnered with a convicted con-artist and collected over $2,900 from unsuspecting donors.
The last time that Pearson was in the mainstream news was in an article by The Daily Caller. In May, reporter Betsy Rothstein revealed that Pearson was suspended from school after bullying two girls. He was also given a disciplinary hearing, after being considered for expulsion.
While Pearson’s fame in the conservative media has come to a crashing halt (except being recently acknowledged by Cheryl Chumley at WND who apparently missed the memo), the 13-year-old Peter Popoff has over 129,600 likes on Facebook. His most recent video, “I refuse to be bullied into backing away from Donald Trump!” has over 2.4 million views and over 65 thousand likes. This provides a perfect base of conservative followers, who are unaware of Pearson’s deception to obtain money. He has taken advantage of that opportunity.
On July 25, 2016, Pearson created a GoFundMe campaign, requesting to raise $7,500 for a future website. The campaign is titled, “Building an Empire.” He has already raised approximately $995, and that number is still growing.
