She is just so good at her job.

Donald Trump spokesperson extraordinaire Katrina Pierson showed off the planet she lives on for money, appearing on CNN with host Victor Blackwell and Clinton surrogate Miami Beach mayor Philip Levine. Just in case you can't stomach her in large doses, here's a fifty cent tour of her latest bucket of falsehoods.

"Mister Trump always says nice things about people, just because he's a good person."

"Hillary is responsible for the Libya mess which gave birth to ISIS." [I know, that one burns with stupid -- ISIS is universally acknowledged to be a direct outcome of the US invasion of Iraq by the Bush Administration. They are centered in Iraq and western Syria. Pierson is, at this early moment in the appearance, just spewing nonsense to fill the timeslot.

"Hillary...doesn't want to run on being Secretary of State."

She then attempts to connect Hillary Clinton to the Boko Haram terrorists. This is a step too far for host Victor Blackwell:

"Wait. Wait. Hold on a minute. Hold on a minute. We have to stop there. You're connecting. Hillary Clinton. To the abduction. Of the girls. in Nigeria!?!"

Katrina Pierson then repeats that standard right wing trope that if someone doesn't say the exact word "terrorist" or whatever the fake standard is for today, that must mean Hillary Clinton made a speaker's fee Benghazi secret lesbian baby parts Whitewater Sidney Blumenthal tax return profits off of kidnapped girls in Nigeria her own self because woman card.

Do I need to prove to anyone here that Secretary Clinton's State Department designated the Boku Haram leadership as terrorists? Of course I don't. But here.

To be honest, by that time I was as dumbfounded as Victor Blackwell by her imperturbable lies. The look on Blackwell's face says it all:


But that's the whole point. I can take an hour, compose a blog post, and debunk everything she says. No CNN host or Clinton surrogate can be prepared for the torrent of nonsense from Katrina Pierson. She fills the segment with blah blah and wins.

Mister Trump? In the 24 hour news cycle where we ALWAYS have to go to commercial, Katrina Pierson is worth every penny.
