#KatrinaPiersonHistory Mocks Trump Spokeswoman for Misidentifying History


Katrina Pierson turned quite a few heads yesterday with her defense of Donald Trump’s attacks on Khizr Khan, and the Internet is having a laugh about it.

The Trump campaign spokeswoman gave an interview to Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday, claiming among her defenses that it was the fault of President Obama and Hillary Clinton that Khan’s son, Humayun, died during the Iraq War. Pierson’s claim is somewhat odd considering the fact that Khan was killed in 2004. This was when George W. Bush was still president, and neither Obama nor Clinton were leading the government or determining the conflict’s rules of engagement.

This being the case, Twitter is blowing up with suggestions about what else Pierson might try to blame on the Obama Administration. In general, #KatrinaPiersonHistory mocks the spokeswoman by suggesting that she thinks Obama and Clinton are time-travelers responsible for some of the worst episodes of human history.

So, what else were Obama and Clinton responsible for? Amelia Earhart’s disappearance? The sinking of the Titanic? The eruption of Mount St. Helens?
