"You can't make this stuff up" (Stu Tarlowe)

Which reminds me of this Almost Royal episode:

(The series centers on (faux) "Royals" Georgie and Poppy, the 57th and 58th in line to the Brit  throne, continue their examination of American culture, exploring subjects like beauty, holidays, sport and law and order.)

100 years after she dies she will still be the nation's biggest lair



Biloxi, Mississippi (CNN)Donald Trump on Saturday said the policies of President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton "created ISIS," the furthest the GOP front-runner has gone in tying the Obama administration's policies to the rise of the terror group.

Trump offered no evidence for his claim (However....) here at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum, in which he also said escalating tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia were signs that the Islamic Republic wanted to take over the longtime U.S. ally in the Middle East.

"They've created ISIS. Hillary Clinton created ISIS with Obama," Trump said. [Full]

“On Saturday's Good Morning America, co-host Dan Harris suggested Hillary Clinton "may actually have been right" about Donald Trump turning up in ISIS videos. And during the subsequent segment, reporter Mary Bruce said Hillary "predicted" Trump "would become" recruitment fodder. There's only one hitch: Hillary hadn't "predicted" that ISIS would use Trump or that he "would become" fodder. On December 19th, during a Dem debate, Hillary claimed that ISIS was already using Trump in recruitment videos. But no terror group used Trump in a video before today, when he turned up in a video not by ISIS but from an al Qaeda-affiliated group.

The irony is that by mentioning the use of Trump in terrorist recruitment videos, Hillary might actually have encouraged Islamic terrorist groups to do so. These groups are very media-savvy. And after Hillary's statement, what better way to ensure massive media coverage of a recruitment video than to stick Trump in it? Thanks for the idea, Hillary!

 Note: Co-host Paula Faris apparently didn't get the memo about how GMA was going to spin this. She let the cat out of the bag, saying that Hillary had "falsely" claimed (lied) ISIS was using Trump in recruitment videos. Kudos to her for candor, but Faris's message was overridden by the statements by sidekick Harris saying Hillary "may actually have been right," and by Bruce, saying Hillary had merely "predicted" what ISIS would do. From the January 2 Good Morning America:

The  Progressive response:
MEDIA LIES: ABC News Now Says Hillary Clinton (only) PREDICTED Trump Would Be Used In ISIS Videos - Progressives ...
Progressives Today - 2 days ago

However; anyone whom has not by now realized that Hillary Clinton is a pathological liar will never be persuaded.
