State superintendent GOP nominee dodging confrontation of controversial posts

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – Michele Morrow, the North Carolina Republican state superintendent of public instruction nominee is making headlines not only for beating out incumbent Katherine Truitt, but she continues to dodge addressing controversial posts made to “X” – also known as Twitter – last year.

Caught walking out of the GOP convention on March 20th by reporters looking for answers, Morrow still refuses to comment on viral posts allegedly made by her in May and December of 2023

Those posts are calling for the death of President Joe Biden and Former President Barack Obama.

In May, she responded to a social media question, “Who wants to see Obama tossed into Gitmo for treason?!”

Morrow writes, “I prefer a pay-per-view of him in front of the firing squad. I do not want to waste another dime on supporting his life We could make some money back from televising his death.”

Now in December, she answered another social media question, “Will you follow Joe Biden’s advice and wear a mask for 100 days?” with “We need to follow the Constitution’s advice and kill all traitors!!!”

After being confronted March 20th, Morrow posted a video on “X” with the comment, “CNN fake news reporters from NYC spent 2 days watching me and my family. 3 @CNN male reporters ambushed me last night as I walked to my car, even blocking my door!”

The video only states how inappropriate their presence was and claims election-interfering tactics.

“It’s because they are trying to interfere in the 2024 election… just like they did in the 2020 election,” Morrow says in the video.

The only acknowledgment of anything regarding her social media comments is a post on March 24th stating, “The dysfunctional media is trying to create “gotcha moments” out of old comments taken out of context, made in jest, or never made in the first place.”

The post is complimented with a video stating voters in North Carolina are excited for a change in leadership and her opponent Mo Green, is the most radical extremist the democrats have ever run.

Now searching for the comments is no good. It was visible last week on her profile and gone this week. Only screen grabs are seen being posted by others of the social media posts and a spindling thread of people calling for her to address the posts continues on “X.”

WITN did reach out for comment from both Mo Green and Morrow. We did not hear back from Green, but Morrow shared:

North Carolina’s General Election is November 5th. The state superintendent is just one of over 20 offices up for election.
