Trump Campaign Says Hillary Clinton Is ‘Now The Media Spokesperson For Al-Qaeda’

Trump Campaign Says Hillary Clinton Is ‘Now The Media Spokesperson For Al-Qaeda’

Donald Trump’s campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson let loose with another characteristically absurd remark Monday.

On MSNBC’s Live with Thomas Roberts, the host grilled Pierson on the new recruiting video from the African terrorist group Al-Shabaab, which uses a clip of Trump exclaiming his campaign promise to ban Muslims from entering the United States. Doesn’t this confirm, Roberts asked, Clinton’s statement at last month’s Democratic debate that ISIS was using Trump for recruitment?

“Donald Trump is less concerned what ISIS and terrorists think, and more concerned about what Americans think, and how Americans are gonna be protected moving forward,” Pierson said.

Pierson continued:

You know, I do love the media, though, using this — not you — but there have been media actually saying this is exactly what Hillary Clinton was talking about, when in fact it’s not. Because Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama told us Al-Qaeda was on the run. And who is Al-Shabaab? An affiliate of Al-Qaeda. This was not ISIS like Hillary Clinton claims. So the media’s actually trying to call this a win for Clinton — when in fact it looks like Clinton is now the media spokesperson for Al-Qaeda. [Emphasis added]

Well, then. We don’t even really understand her logic at all here. But what else is there to say?

Ah, CPAC. The 2024 conference has been, as Jimmy Kimmel put it, “a who’s who of who won’t accept the results of the election.” But that doesn’t mean Donald Trump didn’t go there to shine like a lazy diamond, and shine he did—for more than an hour on Saturday. And we were here for it. Because Hibernol is not a real thing. Yet. But ask us again in November. The FDA may give it an emergency use authorization if the world suddenly goes catawampus.
