Ridiculous Missouri Senator Claims The Donald Founded ISIS

When Donald Trump claimed that the Obama administration (and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton) were the founders of ISIS, Democrats said that the claim was ridiculous.

It's been less than a week, but they seem to have forgotten about how ridiculous they said the statement was, because now Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill is repurposing it, but making it even more preposterous in a FOx News interview with Chris Wallace.

WALLACE: In fairness, Senator, he isn’t criticizing [Hillary Clinton] in any way or denigrating the work of the military. He’s saying that President Obama and Hillary Clinton made some bad decisions that have led to the present situation.

MCCASKILL: Well, you can — there’s a lot of reasons that ISIS rose up. One of them was the status of forces agreement known as SOFA that Bush negotiated. We couldn’t leave our troops in Iraq even if the president wanted to because the parliament in Iraq was refusing to give them immunity. Now, Trump probably thinks the SOFA, the status of forces agreement, is a gilded couch at Mar-A-Lago. He probably doesn’t know what SOFA is. But that was a very relevant part of this. It was also important to realize that Assad, by what he did in his country, allowed ISIS to move into what was then Iraq — al Qaeda in Iraq into Syria and get strongholds and recruit. That was the work and support of Putin who is Trump’s best buddy. So, you can say Trump and his friend Putin are the founder of ISIS, which probably would be more accurate than calling out the commander-in-chief in that way.

WALLACE: Well, I’m glad for that last comment. That will certainly get Donald Trump’s attention. Senator McCaskill, thank you. Thanks for your time this week. And it’s always good to talk with you.
