Hey Donald! It Might Be Time To Get Another Spokesperson
She’s not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed as evidenced by many factual errors, so when Trump Spox Katrina Pierson claimed Obama led the US into Afghanistan on CNN the other day, she was only off by about 4 years. The remarks came during an interview with CNN’s Victor Blackwell.
According to The Blaze:
The remark came during a discussion of Trump’s comment Wednesday that Obama is the “founder of” the Islamic State.
“Remember, we weren’t even in Afghanistan by this time. Barack Obama went into Afghanistan, creating another problem,” Pierson told Blackwell.
“You’re saying Barack Obama took the country into Afghanistan post-2009?” the CNN anchor clarified, apparently stunned at the suggestion.
“That was Obama’s war, yes,” Pierson said.
Blackwell later grilled the spokeswoman about her factual blunder. To this, Pierson insisted, “We’re talking about ISIS specifically.”
But again, Blackwell noted that the Islamic State terror group was around long before Obama took office in 2008.
It’s not the first time Pierson has blamed Obama for something that happened years before his presidency. Earlier this month, she charged the president with the 2004 death of Captain Humayun Khan. She later apologized for the accusation, transferring blame instead to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
After the Captain Khan mishap, a Trump adviser told CNN, “I think we’re fixing it, I guarantee you that won’t happen again with her, that’s for sure.”
It’s interesting to see just how loyal Mr. Trump has been to every member of his team. He’s tolerant and accepting of everyone’s abilities and doesn’t say anything mean or derogatory about them. He’s the opposite of how he’s portrayed by the media.
However, when it comes to his current Spox, he may consider gently reassigning her to something less public. What do you think? Leave a comment with your thoughts below.
