I'm completely mystified why this person still appears on television as a spokesperson for Donald Trump.

The entire segment will be posted later, for context, but it doesn't make any more sense than the brief snippet above.

Appearing on CNN Saturday morning, Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson presented yet another unique take on history, telling host Victor Blackwell that President Barack Obama invaded Afghanistan.

Blackwell then interrupted her, “Barack Obama in 2004, is that what you said?”

“No,” she replied. “I said afterwards. After the surge when al Qaeda was in ashes. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton — remember we weren’t even in Afghanistan by this time. Barack Obama went into Afghanistan, creating another problem. It was Hillary Clinton and her incidents in Libya. They armed the rebels and funded them.”

“You’re saying Barack Obama took the country into Afghanistan post-2009. Is that what you’re saying?”

Pierson paused before replying, “Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton — that was Obama’s war, yes.”

Here's the longer version which dealt with this topic.

UPDATE: This is the person Donald Trump hired as his chief spokesperson.

UPDATE 2: Pierson falsely blames faulty sound.
