Less than a week after Donald Trump himself called Barack Obama the founder of ISIS and Hillary Clinton the co-founder, an absolutely absurd and ridiculous enough claim, Katrina Pierson, a spokeswoman for the controversial campaign, over the weekend referred to the U.S. War with Afghanistan as “Obama’s War,” seemingly topping Trump himself for stupidity.
This isn’t hard. In fact it’s pretty basic recent U.S. history:
The Afghanistan war began in 2001 after the attacks on the U.S. on 9/11/01. The president then? George W. Bush. In 2001, Barack Obama was still in the Illinois state senate representing their 13th District. Hardly a position of influence on the United State’s engagement in foreign conflicts.
Watch Trump’s spox make an idiot out of herself on LIVE TV!
When Pierson realized that *gasp* people were actually aware of who was president in 2001, instead of correcting her previous statement, she shifted the blame to Bill Clinton. Yes. Bill Clinton. In Pierson’s world, Bill Clinton is responsible for making the U.S. vulnerable to attacks that created a mess for Cowboy Bush to swoop down from his ranch in Crawford and clean up.
The real message here? Republicans = Perfect while Democrats = To blame for every problem ever in the entire history of the United States.
The level to which this campaign will sink with its revisionist history is staggering.
