#KatrinaPiersonHistory has taken over social media because of a gaffe made by Donald Trump‘s spokeswoman Katrina Pierson.
Last night, Miss Pierson was being quizzed by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on the ongoing feud between the Khan family and Mr. Trump when she gave the following response to defend her boss. She said:
“It was under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton that changed the rules of engagement that probably cost his life.”
While it has become a national sport for members of the GOP to blame President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for everything that is wrong in America, there is one small problem with Pierson’s remark.
Humayun S.M. Khan, a hero and humanitarian, was killed in 2004 in Iraq while protecting his fellow soldiers from a car bomb – Mr. Obama was elected in 2008.
