Trump Spokeswoman Makes Things Even Worse After Getting Busted in Embarrassing Lie (Video)

To say the Trump campaign has turned into a train wreck would be an understatement. I’ve reached a point with this circus where I almost feel as if he’s purposely pushing his limits to see just how much he can get away with. While there are many reasons to feel this way, the sheer incompetence of the candidate himself and many of those who represent him is astonishing.

A great example of this is seen in one of Trump’s top surrogates Katrina Pierson, who’s frequently proven that she doesn’t know what the hell she’s talking about.

For instance, on Tuesday when Ms. Pierson made a fool out of herself by blaming the death of Captain Humayun Khan on President Obama and Hillary Clinton. The “key issue” there being that Khan died in 2004 — when George W. Bush was president.

Almost instantly this story went viral, with people mocking her for obviously not knowing what the heck she was talking about.

Well, during an interview with CNN on Wednesday morning she changed her story — slightly. She acknowledged it was wrong to assert that President Obama had anything to do with it, but she still claimed that because Hillary Clinton voted for the Iraq War, Clinton is partially responsible for Khan’s death.

In trying to spin what she said on Tuesday, all she did was prove that she has no idea why people have been critical of Donald Trump following statements he made in regards to Khan’s family.

“That’s why I used ‘probably,’ because I was just going through the timeline,” said Pierson, who then suggested that Trump was being blamed for the death.

“But no one was blaming Donald Trump for Capt. Khan’s death. You were blaming President Obama and he wasn’t president yet,” CNN’s Alisyn Camerota said.

“No, I was talking about Hillary Clinton voting specifically for the war. That was during that time period,” Pierson replied.

She then managed to embarrass herself even more by making statements that clearly indicated she had no idea why Trump was being criticized.

“Well CNN has been talking about an attack on the family, so what exactly was the attack? So we can clear that up. What was the attack?” Pierson asked.

After being told that some critics were attacking Trump for wrongly suggesting that Khan’s mother didn’t speak because of her religion, Pierson then proceeded to seemingly make up whatever anti-Muslim nonsense that popped into her head at that time.

“He [Trump] was speaking specifically to the reports that the father, who is a strong proponent of Sharia Law. And actually writing about it and how the Constitution should be subordinate to Sharia Law,” Pierson stated.

Except, the father has said this isn’t remotely accurate and, as of yet, Trump hasn’t been able to provide a source for where he came across these “reports.” Then again, he never does. Donald Trump loves making “matter of fact” statements based upon the “source” of this is what I’ve heard — while never actually telling anyone where he “heard” that information.

Many people (myself included) have suspected that he views random Internet blogs and conspiracy sites as “credible sources.”

This was another epic disaster for Katrina Pierson. The fact that she’s managed to remain one of Trump’s top surrogates for this long is amazing. The only reason I can come up with is that she’s the ultimate “yes person” who does exactly what she’s told to do and never questions the almighty “wisdom” of Donald J. Trump.

Either way, Pierson’s comments just add to the growing list of examples where Donald Trump and/or his campaign have proven how woefully incompetent they are.

    Congress voted to give away its congressional power to declare war to Bush. Hillary was among those doing so. Had Hillary and others not done so, the Khans’ son might still be alive today. It is ironic, sad, and pathetic, that the Khans are supporting someone who violated her oath of office and thus contributed to their son’s needless death. They represent a variation of Stockholm syndrome. Congress can no more give away its power to declare war to a president than the Supreme Court can vote to allow a president decide one of its cases.

    I did find this; perhaps an answer to the riddle Trump couldn’t answer. “Khan’s 1983 paper, “Juristic Classification of Islamic Law,” states that “The invariable and basic rules of Islamic law are only those prescribed in the Shari’ah. …All other juridical works… must always be subordinated to the Shari’ah.”” Khan also told Anderson Cooper, ““I do not stand for any Sharia Law because there is no such thing.” ISIS and even Wikipedia disagrees with Mr. Khan about the non-existence of Sharia law. Mr. Kahn says different things it seems.

    Mr. Khan is also supposed to have worked at law firms that did Hillary’s taxes or answered tax question for the Clinton foundation according to different sources. They also represented Saudi Arabia. Another website has two photos of Mrs. Khan back in 2009 schmoozing in good humor with Obama almost showing some cleavage and another of Mrs. Kahn in 2015. In both photos, Mrs. Kahn is wearing very western clothes. Assuming Khan did write such a paper, and the photos were real, the Khans are intimates of the Clintons and were putting on a show at the DNC for the sheeple.

      When your candidate has come off like a rabid hyena digging itself into a hole – quit helping him dig!

      • strayaway

        Your candidate is a proven warmonger leaving a path of death, destruction, and refugees, who rekindled the cold war for good measure. Captain Khan was one of her victims.

      • Rainbowteacher

        I love how you now blame the war you were dying to get into on Hillary when Bush is the one who lied his way into it. You are no more believable than Trump’s spokesmodel.

      • strayaway

        I opposed the Iraq war war from the start. Again, your faulty assumptions override you knowledge. You still haven’t explained your basis for believing that Hillary, McCain, and others had any constitutional reason to hand over their delegated power to a president. They hadn’t even passed an enabling act.

      • Paul

        All the Republicans are now saying that they were against the Iraq war because of the havoc it caused.

        Of course we all know that they are liars.

      • strayaway

        Wasn’t Sen. Russell Feingold (D) the only Senator to vote against giving his power to declare war to Bush? That means most senate Democrats had the same lousy record. In the House, Democrats did better. Voting yes were 81 Democrats and 215 Republicans. Voting no were 126 Democrats and 6 Republicans. Unfortunately, Hillary was on the wrong side of things as usual voting with the folks who made the Khans’ son’s death possible. Trump claims to be against the interventionist fiascos Hillary/Obama created in Libya, Egypt, Syria, and Ukraine. Republicans, as a whole did support Hillary/Obama more than Democrats in those messes. That’s why so many Republicans have to focus on Benghazi instead of Libya; because they supported the illegal executive action war on Libya.

      • Paul

        They did not vote for war, they voted to use force as a last-resort, Bush invaded as a first resort

      • strayaway

        You are correct. They did not vote for war. They instead voted to hand over their power to declare war to Bush, an unconstitutional act, to let him to decide whether or not to go to war. The Constituion, in Article 1, Section 8, gives that power to Congress, not the president. Hundreds of thousands of people, including the Khans’ son, consequently died.

      • luvcats13

        Got your rabies shot yet? He’s starting to foam at the mouth.

    • Rainbowteacher

      To sum up your long comment: “Here: I’ll throw some more stuff at the wall and see what sticks”. If you have to “assume” or say “if”, then why post it? You got nothin.

      • strayaway

        Because when I am not 100% certain of something, I say so. If I’ve “got nothing”, where did Hillary, McCain, and others in Congress get power to let a president decide to declare war. Show me that passage of the Constitution.

      • Rainbowteacher

        THere you go making stuff up – “get power to let a president declare war” – what does that even mean? Ramblings. At least you admit that you have no credible source for your imaginings about Mrs. Khan.

      • strayaway

        Article 1, Section 1 of the Constitution gives Congress, not the president, the power to declare war. I’m still waiting for you to make the case that Congress, including Sen. Clinton, can pass its delegated power on to a president.

      • Aaron Johnson

        AND, including Trump’s running mate, Pence. Don’t forget that one. But it is okay if he makes a mistake. Hillary already admitted it was a mistake.

      • strayaway

        That’s a valid point about Pence. I was disappointed when I heard that Trump brought on a vp who was as guilty as Hillary of supporting Bush’s war. It does undermine Trump’s position. Hopefully, Pence will not ever be president because of his vote.

    • ltneid

      The stupidity of Trump supporters knows no limits.

    • Betty Miliano

      “Almost showing some cleavage’…??? Do you not hear/see how utterly ridiculous that sounds…?


      Grasping at straws will get you hay , but you’re in good company with the scarecrow, now both of you go find the “Wizard” because it isn’t Trump, and ask for some brains …..

      • strayaway

        So where did Hillary and others get the constitutional power to let Bush decide whether to declare war for Congress? Did or didn’t Khan work for the mega-D.C. law firm Hogan & Hartson—now Hogan Lovells LLP for more than a decade? Did or didn’t those law firms have ties to Clinton and Saudi money? Nice that you are back in Oz where taking too many blue pills makes you vote for warmongering Democrats but do you have any answers?

      • Aaron Johnson

        Others including Trump’s running mate, Pence.

      • strayaway

        Anyone who voted to do something so unconstitutional and foolish should not be rewarded by being elected president. That goes for Pence too.

      • Aaron Johnson

        And Trump is also on record of approving of the decision to go into Iraq. He can say whatever he likes now, but it is a flip-flop.

      • strayaway

        Hillary and Trump are all over the place. That’s true. Saying and doing things are different. Hillary voted to allow Bush to go to war while Trump was building stuff. Big difference. It’s like Trump insulting brown people while Hillary bombs them. Which is worse?


        I suggest you quit asking me to do your work for you and cite the law and paragraph yourself you implications don’t hold water…

      • strayaway

        If you knew anything, you would have answers. You could simplify your vacuous posts by just saying “duh’.

    • PRIME79

      Mike Pence voted the same way as Clinton yet conservates don’t hold it against him but they hold it against Clinton, typical right wing hypocrisy. As for Saudi Arabia, the Bush family is very very close with the Saudi royal family. So close that they Nick named one of them Bandar Bush. Weird how 15 of the 9/11 highjackers were from Saidi Arabia who the Bushs are close to and 9/11 happen on his watch and his administration didn’t say a single word about Saudi Arabia. Instead they lied us into Iraq and the deaths of thousands of Americans like the Khan’s son. Interesting how conservatives never talk about the Bush family while speaking ill of Saudi Arabia.

      • strayaway

        The reason conservatives don’t hold it against either Hillary of Pence is because in most cases they voted the same way as Hillary. Wasn’t Feingold(D) the only senator to vote against Bush’s wishes? The Bush family was very close to the Saudis. Maybe that’s why they feel more comfortable taking potshots at Trump than at Hillary. However, this is not a thread about Bush, Grover Cleveland, or anyone else you want to cite to obfuscate. This is more about Mr. Khan who worked for the two law firms mentioned with Saudi clients. This is about Mr. Kahn’s side business of helping Saudis with lots of money get US visas. Of course he wouldn’t want to stop the flow of Saudis. That would hurt his profits. I can think of conservatives who do speak out against the Iraq war and more recent Hillary/Obama fiascos in Libya, Syria, Ukraine; Ron Paul, Rand Paul, Thomas Massie, Justin Amash. I can also name some Democrats who voted against the Iraq proposal; Bernie Sanders, Sen. Feingold, Dennis Kucinich. Unfortunately, Hillary and pence are on the wrong side of the fence and contributed to the death of tens of thousands.
