Donald Trump Used To Think Iraq War Was Terrific, Just Terrific
He does not know what he said that time he was running his mouth.
[contextly_sidebar id="8HOb1gs7cLHtXbSlQ2storpOmdyGkr23"]Donald Trump has been all over the campaign trail lately, yelling about how he was against that stupid disastrous war in Iraq, that he had said this so many times all the time, and this proves that he will be the yoogest, classiest foreign policy president ever. And it's true that he has, even before his presidential campaign, said the Iraq war was a big dumb mistake.
But was he really against it BEFORE we invaded? Ahem, ACTUALLY, it seems like that's just another lie that's been leaking out of his lie hole, because look how Buzzfeed finded Trump saying in 2002 to Howard Stern that sure, whatever, he guesses doing war to Iraq is a cool idea:
In the interview, which took place on Sept. 11, 2002, Stern asked Trump directly if he was for invading Iraq.
“Yeah I guess so,” Trump responded. “I wish the first time it was done correctly.”
HE GUESSES. Here, you want to hear him saying it with his mouth, instead of just reading the liberal media quoting it?
“Well, I did it in 2003, I said it before that,” Trump said of his opposition to invading Iraq. “Don’t forget, I wasn’t a politician. So people didn’t write everything I said. I was a businessperson. I was, as they say, a world-class businessperson. I built a great company, I employed thousands of people. So I’m not a politician. But if you look at 2003, there are articles. If you look in 2004, there are articles.”

If you'll remember, his devil woman arch-nemesis Megyn Kelly bled her whatevers all over Donald Trump, but she told Howard Stern how awesome her husband's dick is. Stern just brings things out in people, we guess.
And to be fair again (we are feeling "fair" today), he DID say in 2004 to Esquire that the war was a big-ass mistake. But that doesn't mean he's not DOING BIG LIES by saying he was "always" against the war.
At Thursday night's CNN town hall, Anderson Cooper asked Trump why he is such a lie-faced McLiar from Lietown. Here is Trump's defense of himself:
I could have said that. Nobody asked me that. I wasn’t a politician. It was probably the first time anyone has asked me that question. ... By the time the war started, I was against the war. There were articles, there were headlines in 2003, 2004, that I was totally against the war.
Got it. Nobody asked him about it, so it doesn't matter, but that's why there are so many headlines from 2003 and 2004 about Trump opposing the war.

It's far better than Jeb stepping on his dick trying to decide whether the war was bad, good, badgood, or he doesn't even know what he thinks, but he doesn't want his big brother to give him a wedgie so what does he even say?
But he should stop lying and saying he was ALWAYS against the war, when the terrific, gold-plated truth is that he was a common Hillary Clinton who was for it before he was against it.
But it sounds like he's not going to STFU about this, because Donald Trump always has to be right, 100 percent of the time. He told George Snuffleupagus on ABC Friday morning that he's going to go home, get out all his shoeboxes, and find all the different articles about how he was against the war, which will prove that what he said on Howard Stern doesn't matter, the end, Make America Great Again, because it's on his hat.
