Katrina Pierson Goes Too Far: 'Clinton Has Brain Disease'

Floating phony medical theories to the media is Trump's new campaign strategy. When will MSNBC stop asking her on their shows?

It's getting very silly that cable news networks are letting on air medical doctors and political surrogates to diagnose Hillary Clinton for a nonexistent illness.

The latest moron to do this was Trump's Spox Katrina Pierson on MSNBC yesterday afternoon. Apparently the Trump campaign laser printers are busy spitting out imaginary medical degrees for all staff, so they can go on cable news and give their medical opinions about the Democratic nominee.

MSNBC's Kristen Welker, asked Pierson if the Trump campaign's strategy now is doubling down on conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton's health.

After being pressured by Welker to respond to her question, Pierson claimed that Trump has been talking about HRC's health since he started campaigning (he hasn't) and then added...

"What's new are the other reports of the observations of Hillary Clinton's behavior and mannerisms, specifically with what you just showed in those previous clips, as well as her dysphasia, the fact that she's fallen, she has had a concussion."

This entire soliloquy is obviously a lie, littered with unfounded claptrap, but that didn't stop her from parroting a phony diagnosis from the Fox News doctor who appeared on Hannity, only she called it dysphasia.

Welker cut in and said, "There's no indication that she's fallen."

As Pierson continued to try and push the idea that Trump is talking about "real" observations, Welker began talking over her to stop her from lying and said, ""he's clearly trying to spin up some of that speculation."

Pierson replied, "It's something that needs to be addressed. She's taken a lot of time off the campaign trail."

This was another lie and Welker shot back saying, "She hasn't taken a lot of time off the campaign trail. I've been on the campaign trail with her, I'm one of the reporters covering her. She hasn't taken a lot of time off the campaign trail."

Hey, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and every other news network. Please take Newt Gingrich's advice and stop doing letting people use "junk medicine" on the air waves.

It's also time to recognize that lying is more rude than calling out lies. The news media has long had an aversion to using the world "liar" on the air as if it's somehow rude to say that. But if someone is lying, aren't they the ones being rude?

Katrina Pierson has climbed up the ladder to rival Jeffrey Lord as the most obnoxious and dishonest campaign surrogate Trump has. Someone should remind her that this is a presidential campaign and not an extended National Enquirer/TMZ marathon.
