Yet another insane lie. Via Mediaite:
Donald Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson has once again blamed President Obama for something that happened years before he took office.
Remember how Pierson blamed Obama for Captain Humayun Khan‘s death in 2004?
Well, on CNN this morning, as she was arguing with anchor Victor Blackwell about Trump’s “founder of ISIS” remark, Pierson actually said, “Remember, we weren’t even in Afghanistan by this time. Barack Obama went into Afghanistan, creating another problem.”
Blackwell asked, “You’re saying Barack Obama took the country into Afghanistan post-2009?” Pierson said, “That was Obama’s war, yes.”
Bush’s invasion of Afghanistan, dubbed Operation Enduring Freedom, began on October 1st, 2001.
