This MSNBC title says it all:
Trump repeated – favorably – an apparent myth about how General John Pershing summarily executed dozens of Muslim prisoners in the Philippines with tainted ammunition during a guerrilla war against the occupying United States. “He took fifty bullets, and he dipped them in pig’s blood,” Trump said. “And he had his men load his rifles and he lined up the fifty people, and they shot 49 of those people. And the fiftieth person he said ‘You go back to your people and you tell them what happened.’ And for 25 years there wasn’t a problem, okay?”
Trump was unimpressed with waterboarding, a banned interrogation tactic that he has pledged to bring back against suspected terrorists, and supplement with far worse forms of abuse. “Is it torture or not? It’s so borderline,” he said. “It’s like minimal, minimal, minimal torture.”
And the kicker:
Trump’s speech was a hit with the audience, which cheered throughout.
On the same night as this madness, CBS News had the gall to ask the most admired woman in the world if she would promise not to lie.
And people wonder why this election cycle has come unhinged.
