State Superintendent GOP nominee dodging confrontation of controversial posts

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – Michele Morrow, the North Carolina Republican State Superintendent of Public Education Nominee is making headlines not only for beating out incumbent Katrhine Truit, 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, Michele 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 responding to the question, “Who wants to see Obama tossed into Gitmo for treason?!”

She 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 answers “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 Marth 20th, she posts 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,” says Morrow in the video.

The only acknowledgment of anything regarding the 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 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 Michele Morrow. We did not hear back from Green, but Morrow shared:

North Carolina’s general election is November 5th. The State Superintendent of Public Education is just one of over 20 offices up for election.
