He told some story about some British WW1 commander who had his men dip their bullets in pigs blood and then that “taught those dirty rotten Muslims a lesson “ and the US military should be more like that....
Then a bunch of historians swiftly came out debunking that as a well known myth.
So you couldn't even get your own facts right, so the obvious question is how do YOU feel after being caught lying? Angry? A little embarrassed? A bit silly?
“So yes, there were deliberate efforts to offend Muslim Filipinos’ religious sensibilities,” Christopher Capozzola, a history professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, told TIME last year. “And yes, there was large-scale violence against their communities. But I know of no event like the one that Mr. Trump describes.”

Exactly how do Trump supporters excuse the fact that this man is constantly lying?
First they say "they voted for him because he is not a politician" but when caught in another lie, they say "name one politician that doesn't lie".
Now that is correct politicians do lie but how many do it habitually or seemingly for no purpose?
In 1941, TIME ran a letter to the editor from a soldier named J. R. McKey who had served with Pershing in the Philippines decades before. In the letter, McKey describes using pigs in burials to deter Muslim insurgent activities, but does not ascribe the act to Pershing.
Some reports do say that Pershing was engaged in burying Muslims with pigs or throwing pig’s blood on them. According to the History News Network, a Chicago Daily Tribune article from 1927 describes Pershing sprinkling prisoners with pig’s blood, then setting them free to warn others of being doused with the blood. “Those drops of porcine gore proved more powerful than bullets,” the article wrote.
