The ridiculous Trump-Khan incident is another example of Democrat’s skewed reality
This is just silly. Khirz Khan attacked Trump with baseless accusations on the DNC stage. Trump responded in kind, showing once again his strong leadership and tactical ability (unlike bowing Obama). Somehow, the liberal media has shifted the blame to Trump’s shoulders, despite the fact that CROOKED HILLARY was the one who wanted the war in the first place! The entire reason behind Khan’s sacrifice in HILLARY, and yet he stands on HER STAGE and attacks Trump! Unreal.
The leaders of the Republican-controlled House and Senate on Sunday made statements regarding the firestorm of words between party presidential nominee Donald Trump and Khirz Khan, the Muslim father of an Army captain killed in the line of duty.
Khan, during a speech at last week’s Democratic National Convention, said Trump has “sacrificed nothing and no one” for America.
Trump responded by essentially saying he’s made many sacrifices but drew criticism by questioning why Khan’s wife, Ghazala, stood silently on stage during her husband’s speech.
“She had nothing to say,” Trump said on ABC. “Maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say. You tell me.”
Khan had said she didn’t speak because she is still overwhelmed by grief and still cannot look at photos of her son without crying.
Since the controversy started late last week, Khirz Khan has called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan to condemn Trump’s remarks.
In their statements, McConnell and Ryan each praised Khan’s son, Humayun, who was killed in Iraq in 2004, and said they disagreed with Trump’s immigration position.
Trump said this spring, in the aftermath of several terror attacks by radicalized Islamists, that Muslims should be temporarily banned from entering the United States. He has since scaled backed that position, to keeping out people from Syria and other countries that are hotbeds for radical Islamic terrorism.
However, neither McConnell or Ryan directly criticized Trump or his comments about Ghazala Kahn.
How long will this absurdity go on? If Donald was president, we wouldn’t even be in these ridiculous wars.
