Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson: President Obama invaded Afghanistan — ‘That was Obama’s war’

Published

on

Appearing on CNN Saturday morning, Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson presented yet another unique take on history, telling host Victor Blackwell that President Barack Obama invaded Afghanistan.

Fresh from defending Donald Trump supposed “sarcastic” remarks that Obama is the “founder” of ISIS, Pierson attempted to explain to Blackwell that Obama also took the U.S. into Afghanistan after pulling out of Iraq.

“If you want to go way back, we can look at the troop surge. And after 2007, al Qaeda was essentially in ashes,” she explained. “It was Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton who then destroyed the entire rollout by wanting to pull out early, announcing their plans, ignoring intelligence and that’s the reason why ISIS is a global issue and not a –”

Blackwell then interrupted her, “Barack Obama in 2004, is that what you said?”

“No,” she replied. “I said afterwards. After the surge when al Qaeda was in ashes. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton — remember we weren’t even in Afghanistan by this time. Barack Obama went into Afghanistan creating another problem. It was Hillary Clinton and her incidents in Libya. They armed the rebels and funded them.”

A puzzled Blackwell then stopped Pierson again.

“You’re saying Barack Obama took the country into Afghanistan post-2009. Is that what you’re saying?”

Pierson paused before replying, “Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton — that was Obama’s war, yes.”

As a fact check, the U.S. invaded Afghanistan in 2001 in an effort to overthrown the Taliban.

George W. Bush was president at the time, not Barack Obama, as Blackwell pointed out after the break (see second video)

Published

on

Trump biographer Michael D'Antonio told CNN on Friday that he's been in regular contact with professional psychiatrists who believe President Donald Trump lacks the mental capabilities to handle his job.

During a panel discussion about the president's mental health, D'Antonio spilled the beans about what some experts are telling him they see in the president's behavior and speech patterns.

"I hear from psychiatrists on a weekly basis about a different measure of the president, and that's whether he suffers from mental incapacity," D'Antonio explained. "That's a very different category and goes to whether he can perform his job."

Trump’s superpower is distraction — but we finally found his kryptonite

Published

on

Donald Trump is dumb — so dumb he literally suggested on live television that scientists should explore injecting household cleaners into people's lungs to cure the coronavirus. But due to what appears to be a serious and undiagnosed personality disorder — his niece Mary Trump, who is a clinical psychologist, suggests it's likely narcissism or sociopathy — Trump managed to stumble backwards into a strategy that works well with the 24-hour cable news ecosystem of national politics. Actually, "strategy" may be too strong a word, but it's inarguable that Trump's short attention span, impulsive nature and all-consuming corruption have meant a constant deluge of scandals and outrages, with each one knocking the last one out of the headlines.
