This is the father of the vet killed in action who save the lives of the soldiers under his command. Khizr Khan explained that as a father he’d made the ultimate sacrifice. Donald Trump has not had to pay for his freedom. Mr. Khan offered to allow Trump to borrow his copy of the Constitution.
Mr. Khan explained that “You have not sacrificed anything.”
Donald Trump responded with the assertion that he had in fact made sacrificed himself by employing “thousands and thousands of people.” He also suggested that Khan’s wife didn’t speak because she was forbidden to as a Muslim and questioned whether Khan’s words were his own.
This response of Trump is the most offensive statement yet. To compare working to make his fortune to the sacrifice of losing a child is the most outrageous, sickening,heartless thing Trump has ever said. I can not imagine the pain a parent experiences when they have to bury a child. Trump’s insensitivity to this pain is simply unforgivable.
Remember when Trump attacked McCain suggesting that he liked people who weren’t captured?
McCain is now speaking out about his disgust for what Trump said about this fallen soldier. He said:
“Arizona is watching,” McCain said in the statement. “It is time for Donald Trump to set the example for our country and the future of the Republican Party. While our Party has bestowed upon him the nomination, it is not accompanied by unfettered license to defame those who are the best among us.”
So here’s the question. How can Sarah justify her support of Trump when both McCain and her son-in-law have spoken out against this heartless response of Trump?
Moreover, it is outrageous that Trump would attack the mother of the soldier for not speaking at the DNC because she knew she would cry.
