Trump spokeswoman: Hillary & Obama killed Khan’s son in Iraq… in 2004!

I was watching CNN tonight, and couldn’t believe my ears. There was Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s national spokesperson, Katrina Pierson, claiming — incredibly — that President Obama and Hillary Clinton had killed U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, who died at the age of 27, during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2004.

Khan is the son of Khizr and Ghazala Khan, whose appearance at the Democratic Convention last week has been a source of unending pain for Donald Trump.

Let me repeat what Pierson just alleged on national TV: that Obama and Clinton killed Humayun Khan, who died in June of 2004, while George Bush was president, and while Hillary Clinton was still a US Senator from New York, and Barack Obama was still a state senator from Illinois.

(For those who don’t believe, I watched it live — Politico saw it too.)

Here’s what Pierson told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer: “It was under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton that changed the rules of engagement that probably cost his life.”

U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, who died in 2004 in a car bomb in Iraq at the age of 28.

Not really, Katrina. Unless Barack Obama was an exceptionally powerful state senator that he was able to influence US military policy in Iraq all the way from Springfield, Illinois.

And in a move that was particularly tasteless, Pierson also made the bizarre claim that the dead American hero’s father embraces Sharia law. Khan explained on Anderson Cooper’s show tonight that he most certainly does not.

Have these people no shame?

    You know what, you stupid slutcunt whore – learn how to fucking SPELL, you inbred piece of shit! Your ignorant comments make even LESS impact because of your illiterate command of the English language!

    When big money is involved you can believe their is a reason. (Follow the Money) Remember Money is Power. Guess what? I’m not impressed. As a regular person I am voting for Donald Trump. Read “Clinton Cash” and see the movie “Hillary’s America” both are factual and historical.

  3. Carol Reid says:

    Why are the billionaires getting upset about Trump. I have not had enough concrete answers. However, one thing is certain when big money is threatened their is an answer and this arouses strong suspicions. The Clinton Campaign paid Mr. Khan $25,000 for a speech he did not write. A political move to get Donald Trump to respond. One thing is certain no matter what Trump said it would be twisted in a negative way.The son was killed in Iraq in 2004. When Bush was President and Hillary was a US Senator. Both supported the war. Donald Trump was a business man at that time and had nothing to do with Khan. There’s much more about the paid speaker Khan just not enough space to reveal every devious stunt Hillary and her team cooked up.

    Hey, why not? Of course they did! At the very least, they could have?

    It works for the Fox News and right-wing hate radio groupies.

    I believe they call it “The Bubble”

    John Oliver outlined it succinctly the other night as a transitive formula:
    – Politicians can create feelings
    – Feelings are the same as facts
    – Conclusion: Politicians can create facts

    –even if these ‘facts’ are completely at odds with objective, verifiable REALITY. One of the mistakes so many are making is this assumption that Trump and his spokesweasels and even the Republican party actually care anymore whether what they say is true or not. They’ve fully adopted Goebbels “Big Lie” propaganda strategy.

    You’ve got it!!!

  7. Thomas Schreiber says:

    In answer to your question … Indeed, they have no shame. Unfortunately, they also have no use for facts or science either, and a huge percentage of the electorate support their shameless ignorance and bigotry.

    I realize that some more recent additions to the population are challenged by clock faces (vs digital timepieces) when it comes to the determining the hour and the day, but I didn’t think calendars had, to this point, leapt into a similar realm of confusion. I blame the Interwebs, where people post articles from years prior as if they were current events. No one reads datelines anymore. Obviously not Ms. Pierson.

  9. goulo says:

    Next up: 9/11 was the fault of Obama and Clinton.

    Oh, and Obama and Clinton appeased Hitler, enabling World War 2.

    And they are responsible for Lincoln’s assassination, too.

    They have no shame and no decency. There is no bottom of the barrel for these people. They have had none for a long time. They have purposely and relentlessly divided the country using hate speech and negative propaganda to the point where their followers will believe and distribute whatever they are told.
    Yes , this is disgusting but it is already believed as fact by the tribe.

  12. Jimmy says:

    You’re right, but that’s basically Blitzer’s M.O.

  13. Baal says:

    She cannot disappear from public eye too soon.

  14. Dan Thompson says:

    Wolf Blitzer is not a journalist. He’s a TV personality. It’s not his job to ask pertinent questions. He’s made that clear many times in the past.

  15. cinemaven says:

    I think Wolf Blitzer is the even bigger villain in this story. He parroted her insane words and let her off. He patiently responded to her STUPID question asking why Trump should apologize and then allowed her to lie about Mr. Kahn being for Sharia law…he didn’t even try to correct or question that. He then let her spew the last lie about Clinton & Obama being responsible without so much as a blink then yhanked her for coming on when she finished.

    The disgusting complicity of the MSM is what has allowed this to happen and they are still trying to find false equivalency between Trump & Clinton even as their tacky house of cards falls around them.
