Trump: Pence’s Iraq War Vote Fine, Hillary’s BAD!

Donald Trump has a double-standard on voting to invade Iraq. If you’re running against him, it’s bad. If you’re his running mate, he doesn’t care. Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?), John Iadarola (ThinkTank), and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"During the first joint interview with Donald Trump and his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, CBS News' Lesley Stahl grilled Trump on Pence's past support for the Iraq War.

"I don’t care," Trump said when asked about Pence's past vote for the Iraq War.

"What do you mean you don’t care that he voted?" Stahl asked.

"It’s a long time ago. And he voted that way. And they were also misled. A lot of information was given to people," Trump replied.

Stahl then pointed out that Trump has criticized Hillary Clinton for voting for the Iraq War as a senator.

"You’ve used that vote of Hillary’s, that was the same as Gov. Pence, as the example of her bad judgement," she said.”*

  1. The TP ticket, flush dumb and dumber down the toilet. On another note….
    The bar is set so low for this orange buffoon, that now credible reporters
    are now laughing at his idiotic behavior. Drumpf only gets his power from
    his idiotic followers.

  2. Trump is not only an accused rapist/pedophile but a fool too. The best
    things he had going for him over Hillary were the Iraq war and TPP and he
    blew those up the minute he picked Pence. Pence is for trade deals, wars,
    anti-gay, anti-women, anti-social security…….

    • The same Iraq war that he “I guess so” supported in his interview with
      Howard Stern in 2002. He hardly came out against it STRONG like he
      currently states. Any guess on how much of the TPP he has actually read?

  3. This is a great opinion show! far from being actual news, but you guys have
    fine opinions.

    “TYT Opinions Network”

  4. People are still gonna support this guy. Just saying. America is the
    laughing stock of the entire world at this point

    • +Comrade Sanders I can only speak on behalf of England and my experiences,
      but it seems Obama is well praised here. I was here for both of his
      elections – people love him and pretty much anything liberal.

      we are laughed at because of our silly views and Americans are very
      ignorant about world issues, but claim they know it all. it’s not our
      current political lead that makes us embarrassing, but the people that make
      up the country.

    • TYT now has copied the Fox “News” leg cam… maybe cause they are so close
      to the republicans there…

  5. In 2007 or 2008, Trump was on the Howard Stern Show. He talked about how
    Hillary is a close friend and that she would make a wonderful president. I
    don’t understand why any Democrat hasn’t brought that up yet.

  6. anas legs still blow those FOX barbies away. Because there is a brain
    attached to them…

    • Hells yea. This video could be mistaken for one from Porn hub! I watched it
      on mute because I can’t stand radical leftist views. Facts are to liberals
      as crosses are to vampires.

    • only i can see the invisible trumpish trolls here… awesome, keep it
      coming, and when you are done with it. how did it make you feel?

    • ….Well I wasn’t gonna go there cuz it sounds sexist but since you started
      it…. I don’t remember ever seeing Ana’s legs bfore

    • I love how Conservatives take critiques they been given for years and try
      to pull the old “rubber and glue” defense. You do the same thing with
      racism. You ignore facts and you know it. 97% of scientists say that
      global climate change is man made but you idiots ignore it. Reagonomics
      was a dismal failure and you idiots ignore it

    • Nah, Vermin Supreme is legit. His ‘Ponies For Everyone’ policy is what will
      really make America great again.

    • +Sai Ramesh Interestingly enough, he was at a Bernie rally a little while
      back holding a Sanders sign.

  7. Eventually the TYT trolls will get tired like they always do at the end of
    an election and things will go back to normal in the comment section. TYT
    real viewers be patien,t they will go away soon.

    • Cenk is awesome lol. The way he ravages the trump voter is truly
      inspirational.

  8. Bigest mistry is how trump suporters can use the PC and internet !they too
    stupid for such complex act for them

    • +NathanielEverist Have you ever listened to a republican politician talking
      about education? Or read a history or science school book from Texas?
      That’s your evidence right there…

    • +NathanielEverist Christians not allowing basic biology classes to be
      taught in schools Christians trying to change local school boards in Texas
      change the secular education system to a Christian fundamentalist one
      ,Christian trying to change text books to say America is a Christian
      Nation. Christian’s homeschooling their children with nonsense I can go on
      and on but I don’t have all day

  9. now that trump admits that he is ok with the establishments. I wonder if
    his supporters can figure out what that means.

    • +Comrade Sanders … for the people? this is a guy who stated he will
      bankrupt the united states government… banning a religion of 1.6 billion
      people, build a wall that will work as well as the great wall of China.
      this is not a man for the people, he spews hate out and some fanatics love
      him for it. remember he did state “I love the poorly educated.”

  10. Trump already has the stupid people voting for him, they will support him
    no matter what. When is he going to stop being an imbecile and try for
    other voters like the independents?

    • Never. Their defeat is imminent. I believe this election is essentially
      over.

    • +Woodsie L except this video is criticism on his actions; he literally
      supported the Iraq War initially, he literally supported Hillary, he’s
      literally made racist remarks towards immigrants, Muslims and blacks
      (including our current president), he literally has failed at running his
      businesses, and he literally uses Hillary’s vote as his main indictment of
      her judgment since starting his campaign and he literally lies (the latest:
      “I’m humble” yet slaps his name on every building he can get his hands on).
      And he literally chose a man who voted the same as Hillary, but actually
      stands by his vote to this day (which I can’t see how any logical person
      can), and is literally speaking for him in this interview. That’s all
      actions. I believe the only real strategic problem for Clinton is just as
      this video parlays; Clinton has ovaries and not testicles, and the voters
      that aren’t dumb enough to go with Trump don’t entirely trust her, despite
      her pretty balanced record of triumphs & mistakes

  11. Can you guys please stop sticking up for Hitlery Clinton?
    Trump is bad yes, but Clinton is a disaster.

    • One of them will be elected – that is a fact. Now is the question if you
      want a rightwing politician(hillary) or if you want Patrick Bateman as your
      president.

    • He endorsed her because he had to because he already lost and he only way
      he can be allowed to have a platform at the DNC is by endorsing the
      democratic candidate. Also because she’d be a much better president than
      Trump. It’s how the sysytem works.

    • Rand Paul endorsed Mitt Romney in 2012 who supported the war. Ron Paul
      voted for the war in Afghanistan and Barbara Lee voted against it.
      What point are you trying to make?
