There have been some pretty brainless statements coming out of Drumpf's campaign ( mostly by the candidate himself ), but surely this woman is their version of Baghdad Bob, utterly clueless and quite divorced from reality. That she is still employed as a TV spokesperson says much about the Drumpf campaign, none of it good:

Speaking on behalf of the Trump campaign to CNN on Saturday, spokesperson Katrina Pierson claimed that President Barack Obama was responsible for starting the war in Afghanistan. That war began following the September 11th attacks under President George W. Bush, seven years before Obama was elected president. In an attempt to defend Donald Trump’s assertion that Obama is the “founder of ISIS,” (http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/08/11/trump-s-new-conspiracy-spew-obama-founded-isis.html) Pierson referenced the 2007 troop surge in Iraq before stating, "Remember, we weren't even in Afghanistan by this time. Barack Obama went into Afghanistan, creating another problem.” When CNN anchor Victor Blackwell asked her if she believed Obama “took the country into Afghanistan post 2009,” Pierson replied, "That was Obama's war, yes." Earlier this month, Pierson also said President Obama was responsible for the death of Captain Humayun Khan (http://www.thedailybeast.com/cheats/2016/08/02/trump-spox-khan-died-because-of-obama.html?via=desktop&source=copyurl), who died in Iraq in 2004, four years before he took office.

This sort of thing does not surprise me anymore. It does sadden me, though.

Holy Christmouse! If this is the quality of Trump appointments and a bellwether as to who he would appoint to key administration posts were he to be elected, then we are truly stuffed.

She's the perfect Trump spokesperson:

She knows nothing and she has not shame.
