6 Bizarro Moments from Trump's '60 Minutes' Interview

The weirdness of the Trump-Pence phenomenon is already in full bloom. America got some early exposure to this clown show on 60 Minutes on Sunday evening. Pence didn't get much airtime in their joint interview, and seemed to need a lot of help from the GOP candidate. Of course, Trump spouted off inaccuracies as usual. Here are 6 of his best - or worst - moments. 

1. “I was against the war in Iraq."

Thrump has frequently used this inaccuracy to topple his opponents throughout the election, but as it turns out, he really wasn't against the war. 

“Are you for invading Iraq?” Howard Stern asked Donald Trump in 2002.
“Yeah, I guess so,” Trump said.

2. “No, I want to win."

This is a response to a question of whether he would involve the US in more wars on foreign soil. You'll have to make sense of this on your own...

3. “We are going to have ‘unbelievable intelligence' ... and get NATO involved."

Trump explaning how he's going to be different from Obama ... except NATO is already involved in the fight against ISIS, and will be providing surveillance planes. 

"Nato will also work to establish an intelligence centre in Tunisia and will support the country's special operation forces," the BBC reported

4. “Turkey is an ally. Turkey can wipe out ISIS by themselves."

More shallow geopolitical analysis.

5. “Hillary Clinton invented ISIS"

Don't ask trump who invented the light bulb. You won't like the answer.

6. “I am actually humble. I think I’m much more humble than you would understand.”

He's so humble, your brain would melt if you could understand it, so don't even try.
