Try to make sense of Trump’s absurd positions here on Libya. John Dickerson shows how he put out a video advocating for intervention in Libya, and Trump is shocked it exists. Immediately he starts changing his past position. Almost like a con man.
From this morning:
He’s stumbling all over himself trying to explain the contradiction between what he said earlier and what he later said, but just last night on Judge Jeanine’s show, he blasted Hillary for going into Libya!!
At the 12:30 mark:
Good Lord what a moron.
Here’s more from the Hill:
“I didn’t mind surgical. And I said surgical. You do a surgical shot and you take him out,” Trump said in an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation” aired Sunday.
But Trump has said before that U.S. involvement in Libya was a mistake.
“We would be so much better off if Gaddafi would be in charge right now,” Trump said at a Texas debate in February.
But in the interview aired Sunday, Trump flipped that stance.
“I was for something, but I wasn’t for what we have right now,” Trump said. “I wasn’t for what happened. Look at the way — I mean look at with Benghazi and all of the problems that we’ve had. It was handled horribly. … I was never for strong intervention. I could have seen surgical where you take out Gaddafi and his group.”
The only thing dumber than Trump are the followers who defend his idiocy and pretend like he’s brilliant and consistent on his policies.
