Internet mocks Trump spokesperson’s claim Obama invaded Afghanistan with #KatrinaPiersonHistory

After yet another gaffe-laden interview on CNN where she bluntly stated that the U.S. invaded Afghanistan under Commander in Chief Barack Obama — missing the actual invasion date by eight years — it was inevitable that Twitter would create #KatrinaPiersonHistory in honor of the Trump campaign spokesperson.

Appearing on CNN Saturday morning, Pierson found that out that it was much easier for her boss to make up stories, get facts wrong and generally lie without being called-out face to face.

Attempting to deflect attention away from the GOP’s presidential nominee who sarcastically — or maybe not — claimed President Barack Obama was the “founder” of ISIS, Pierson went a step further saying Obama invaded Afghanistan after the surge in Iraq.

“After the surge when al Qaeda was in ashes. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton — remember we weren’t even in Afghanistan by this time,” she stated. “Barack Obama went into Afghanistan creating another problem.”

Pressed by CNN host Victor Blackwell — who was stunned by an assertion that was completely at odds with history — Pierson stood firm, saying, “Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton — that was Obama’s war, yes.”

Thus was born, #KatrinaPiersonHistory.

‘Trump brought a whole new meaning to white noise’: Colbert says president gave crackheads a bad name

Published

"They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting Donald Trump to shut up," said Stephen Colbert as part of his debate wrap-up on Wednesday night.

"He brought a whole new meaning to white noise," the host quipped on "A Late Show."

"I don't know what Chris Wallace was supposed to do," said Colbert. "At the next debate, they should just give the moderator a button to bring on the slime. I'm not the only one who despised last night's debate, according to a CBS poll, of the people who watched it, 69 percent felt annoyed. Annoyed? Really, evidently, 'gouging out my eyes with a grapefruit spoon' was not an option."

‘Classic projection’: Mary Trump says the president was triggered when Biden called a policy ‘not smart’

Published

President Donald Trump's niece Mary not only spent her life around the president and his family, but she also has the benefit of being a psychologist who could legitimately assess the life and mental health of her uncle.

Speaking to MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell, she explained that in one particular moment in the Tuesday evening debate, Trump seemed triggered by former Vice President Joe Biden's use of the phrase "not smart" in reference to a policy. Trump went off.

"Did you use the word 'smart?'" Trump asked after Biden insulted Trump's coronavirus plan as not being "smart."

"So you said you went to Delaware State but you forgot the name of your college," Trump continued, falsely claiming something Biden never said. "You didn't go to Delaware state. You graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest in your class. Don't ever use the word 'smart' with me. Don't ever use that word."

Trump attacks NBC for covering a hurricane instead of his Nobel Prize nomination: ‘These people are sick’

Published

on

In a series of bizarre nonsequiturs in Duluth, Minnesota Wednesday evening, President Donald Trump unleashed on NBC News for covering a monster hurricane hitting Louisiana and Mississippi instead of talking about his friend nominating him for a Nobel Prize.

Former President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize at the start of his presidency, and like the ever-illusive Emmy Trump also hasn't won, the Nobel Prize has never been within his grasp. The Obamas were nominated for seven Emmys for a series of things they produced with Netflix. They won an Emmy for outstanding directing for a documentary/nonfiction program for "American Factory."
