Donald Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson responded to an ad from Hillary Clinton hitting her boss on his response to Brexit by criticizing Clinton’s response to the Benghazi attacks.
CNN host Ashleigh Banfield asked Pierson about criticism from the Clinton camp that Trump’s response to the Brexit crisis was selfish and volatile. “While the rest of us have been watching the big board sagging after the Brexit vote, Donald Trump was doing business in Scotland opening a golf course,” she pointed out.
But Pierson was unfazed. “Perhaps Mr. Trump could have gone out and blamed Brexit on a video that never really existed and maybe the media would have been okay with that response,” she snarked.
“You have to be clear. What did that mean?” asked Banfield.
“When the attack on the consulate of Benghazi occurred, Hillary Clinton went out and lied to the American public and blamed it on a video,” Pierson responded. “That is something that was very serious.”
“That was a video that did exist, though,” Banfield pointed out.
“But it wasn’t the cause. It wasn’t the cause. It wasn’t the cause,” Pierson repeated.
