The Trump Campaign Does History

More incomprehensible delusion from the Trump campaign, via spokesperson Katrina Pierson:

"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.

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.”

“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.”

It's hard to even imagine what game they think they are playing when they say things like this, over and over again.  Thank God that it doesn't seem to be working, but really, at this point, in a country full of decent people, Trump wouldn't be polling 10%.  The Republican party is going to be answering for decades for the damage they have done to us by generating this out-of-control, ignorant, hate-filled base.
