Just a day full of facepalms. She thought Captain Humayun Khan died during the 'Obama' troop withdrawal, when Barack Obama wasn't even a U.S. Senator. in 2004
August 2, 2016

I think Katrina Pierson felt slighted that the other Trump spokesperson/media-bimbo, Scottie Nell Hughes, stole her spotlight yesterday, when she asserted that Hillary Clinton was responsible for sending Captain Humayun Khan to Iraq. He lost his life in 2004, during Bush Jr.'s first term. Somehow, Illinois State Senator, Barack Obama and Then-NY Senator, Hillary Clinton colluded to tragically cause his death.

Donald Trump has always reveled in his gift for finding the 'best' managerial staff. That's hardly plausible when you witness the unprecedented, jaw-dropping gaffes that his poorly-informed spokespeople are making, at breakneck speeds. Trying to keep up with these egregious errors that are exacerbating the freefall of this campaign is a challenge. When your 'experts' are devoid of knowledge and if learning facts is frowned upon, the result is catastrophic. A good comparison would be a 'Trumpster Fire' on board a steaming locomotive, headed for a cliff.

Wolf Blitzer asked Katrina Pierson if Herr Drümpf apologized, like his son Eric claimed he did, for being disrespectful to Mrs. Ghazala Khan in such grotesque fashion.

PIERSON: But just out of curiosity, what exactly is Mr. Trump supposed to be apologizing for? Just so that I'm clear.

BLITZER: Well, he raised questions about the mother for example why she didn't speak...alongside her husband at the Democratic convention

Katrina the Brillliant attempts to vallidate the nonsensical Shari'a claims that the Alex Jones lunatics along with Roger Stone et. al. concocted. Thankfully, Wolf didn't really acknowledge the conspiracy nut-baggery.

BLITZER: Wasn't he disrespectful, though, to that Gold Star Family?

PIERSON: He didn't say anything about the son, in fact, he honored his service. The only thing he said, Wolf, is basically, this man knows nothing about me why is he criticizing me ? How is that an attack?

Blitzer suggests it would have been better to let it slide with a simple, tactful acknowledgement of the family's sacrifice, it's best not to get into a disagreement with highly respected people who have paid the ultimate price. The problem is, she really doesn't understand 21st Century chronology very well. Katrina's confusion causes her to be extremely flummoxed. Here's her version of that ancient war, the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

PIERSON: Surely you can understand the confusion, considering how Donald Trump never voted for the Iraq War (pronounced Eye-Rack) Hillary Clinton did, and then she didn't support the troops to have what they need (total lie). It was under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton that changed the rules of engagement that probably cost his life. So I don't understand why it's so hard to understand why Donald Trump was confused about why he was being held responsible for something he had nothing to do with, while Hillary Clinton had EVERYTHING to do with.

Is she making a decent salary while being a blithering, uninformed idiot? We must consider, however, that if she's working for this charlatan, it's likely he's waiting for the best time, to cut her a check, it'll be terrific. If she's making good money, well, that's slightly depressing. You couldn't pay me enough to cover for that bloviating fraud.

While the Drümpfenführer makes pernicious and odious use of Twitter, there are others who have mastered the art of humor, profundity and brevity. Sometimes, Twitter provides much-needed laughs during some troubling times, indeed. Here are a few good ones from the #KatrinaPiersonHistory hashtag.

It's hard to wrap your head around this whole joke of a campaign. The world watches in horror while we are inundated with dangerous amounts of stupidity. I don't know whether we should laugh or cry, but laughing seems like much more fun.
