The Daily Show Uncovers Video with Trump Telling Lauer He Supports War on Libya

‘Trump supported the Libyan invasion, and Matt Lauer was in the room as he did it, but everyone’s pretending like it didn’t happen’

LYDIC: "Finally, let's look at Donald Trump's criticism of Hillary Clinton's support for military action in Libya."
TRUMP [video]: "Again, she made a mistake on Libya. She made a terrible mistake on Libya. Not only did she make the mistake, but then they complicated the mistake. I mean, she made a terrible mistake on Libya."
LYDIC: "Like Augustus Gloop at Willy Wonka's chocolate river, that's where Matt Lauer should have jumped in because we've all talked about this before, back in 2011, Donald Trump himself demanded intervention in Libya. But to be fair, how do you expect Matt Lauer to know that he would also invade Libya, it's not like Trump said it to his face."

QUESTION: "How would you support a situation like Libya right now."
TRUMP: "I would certainly support a "No Fly" zone at a minimum."
LAUER: "Even at the risk of committing our military forces, not only in the air but in the ground?
TRUMP: "I would not do it for a long period of time. But you can't allow something like this to happen. This is like the holocaust. You can't allow something like this to happen."
[END VIDEO]
LYDIC: "Oh look, he just said it to his face. So let's see, Trump supported the Libyan invasion, and Matt Lauer was in the room as he did it, but everyone's pretending like it didn't happen. So I give this a walking in on your parents (bleep). Turns out my mom also has a serenity tattoo."
