In one of the most bizarre moments of any debate, Donald Trump channeled his inner Michael Moore when he talked about George W. Bush and the war in Iraq.
Trump didn’t repeat his call for impeaching Bush there, but he didn’t disavow it either as he fully the wacko “Bush lied, people died” conspiracy theory that liberals have loved for so long.
“I will tell you. They lied. And they said there were weapons of mass destruction and there were none. And they knew there were none.”
If you had told anyone even a year ago that the front runner for the Republican Party nomination would would be indistinguishable from Harry Reid when he talked about George W. Bush, I don’t think anyone would have believed you.
PS: For the record, Trump didn’t actually come out against the war until well after we had launched an invasion and had started to get bogged down. So, when he takes great pride in noting that he was against the war from the start, that’s not even true.
PS #2: Someone let Trump know that even Democrats like Hillary Clinton looked at the same intelligence data as George W. Bush and came to the same conclusions.
