Trump spokesperson: Obama invaded Afghanistan in 2001

Hurricane Katrina strikes again.

Trump campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson, already on thin-ice with Camp Trump after claiming earlier this month that President Obama was running the Iraq war in 2004.

Now she’s apparently claiming that President Obama invaded Afghanistan in 2001. (In fact, Pierson claims Obama got us into Afghanistan, and we got into Afghanistan in 2001, so Pierson is claiming that Obama invaded Afghanistan in 2001.)

Quite a powerful state senator, that Obama.

During the earlier snafu, Pierson also claimed that Hillary Clinton was Obama’s co-director in charge of the entire war effort. In fact, Clinton was a US Senator at the time; President George Bush was in charge of the US war effort.

From the video below:

“Remember, we weren’t even in Afghanistan by this time. Barack Obama went into Afghanistan, creating another problem…. That was Obama’s war, yes.”

Pierson has truly outdone herself with this last historical whoopsie. And it will be interesting to see what the Trump campaign does in response. While Trump is a fan of lying, even his lies tend not involve temporal anachronisms. The last time Pierson messed up this badly, the Trump campaign threw her under a bus and promised it would happen again.

“I think we’re fixing it, I guarantee you that won’t happen again with her, that’s for sure. And it won’t likely happen with anybody else,” Sam Clovis told CNN’s “New Day.”

Yeah, well, it just did.

(Maybe Katrina was just being sarcastic.)

    Ypou have interesting opinions. “Yea….. And i’m starting to wonder if trolls are hired by Marvel to do this because it’s starting to go overboard with the amount of DC hate. A tad scary in fact.”

  2. Dee says:

    I don’t get it. Are Americans’ memory that short or it’s just that they do not want to know their history or facts?? I really have a new appreciation for the sensible Americans for bearing the blunt of the circus.

  3. Dee says:

    Yea and Gore Vidal was the genius of the year who knows every single little thing. He was the voice of reason. He was the only one person in the world who doesn’t lie and goes to heaven. Amen.

    This entire ordeal has not only been hard for me but also for my children Sasha and Malia.

  6. Larry Linn says:

    She is a joke! A bad joke.

  7. Larry Linn says:

    Trump’s entire campaign strategy is based upon mendacity

  8. Blogvader says:

    You’d think a supposed billionaire could afford better PR people.

    What a jackass.

  9. Demosthenes says:

    It appear that ignorance and mendacity are a requirement for association with the Trump campaign. Ms. Pierson is a “two-fer”, since she is both.

  10. Bill_Perdue says:

    Gore Vidal called it. Democrats are ever so much better liars than Republicans.

    “There is only one party in the United States, the Property Party … and it has two right wings: Republican and Democrat. Republicans are a bit stupider, more rigid, more doctrinaire in their laissez-faire capitalism than the Democrats, who are cuter, prettier, a bit more corrupt — until recently … and more willing than the Republicans to make small adjustments when the poor, the black, the anti-imperialists get out of hand. But, essentially, there is no difference between the two parties.

  11. rmthunter says:

    She was joking. Can’t you tell a joke?

  12. Low Hanger says:

    While I do consider her to be hot and would undoubtedly eat her out, she really did drop the ball with this one.

  13. old_redneck says:

    Little known facts:

    — Obama was on the grassy knoll in Dallas
    — Obama was the guy who told Pontius Pilate how to deal with Jesus
    — Obama – who lived in Hawaii at the time – told the Japanese where the US battleships were moored in Pearl Harbor

    And how do I know this? Well, you see, a lot of people are saying it.

  14. DoverBill says:

    Who is this ‘Katrina Pierson stupid person?

    You gotta laugh. Someone needs to do their homework.

  17. What does it say about the Trump campaign that they haven’t fired her yet? She swallows.

  18. Zorba says:

    Katrina wasn’t being sarcastic, John. She is dumber than a box of rocks. Dumber than a bag of hair. She fell out of the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down. One taco short of a combination plate. (Or, as I like to say, one ντολμά- dolma- short of a mezedakia platter.)
    What does it say about the Trump campaign that they haven’t fired her yet? Obviously, nothing good.

  19. Jimmy says:

    Why does the Trump campaign continue to surround itself with such idiots? I mean, I’m glad they do, but this may go down in history as the worst run president campaign ever — and that’s saying something. I look forward to watching the future Emmy Award winning HBO mini-series.

  20. Houndentenor says:

    No one that stupid and ill-informed should ever be on a news channel. If I were a Republican I’d be outraged. As a Democrat I’m laughing my ass off. This is a joke. I haven’t put much credit in the conspiracy theory that Trump is doing this to lose on purpose to help the Clintons but it sure does look like it. How else can you explain this level of buffoonery?

  21. goulo says:

    Her assertions are truly amazing and bizarre. It will be interesting indeed to see if the Trump campaign reacts, and how.

    PS: Significant typo alert: you wrote “promised it would happen again.” … You mean “promised it would WON’T happen again.”

  22. douglas01 says:

    I thought Sam Clovis said this wasn’t going to happen again.
