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.
