We keep hearing Donald Trump tell us he has the temperament to be President. We also hear about his “wonderful” brain that would make him a great President, too. Then we have the team surrounding him giving him advice on everything from foreign policy to domestic policy. According to all of this evidence, we should all vote for Donald Trump, so they say.
Yet, on Thursday night, an unknown man and his wife appeared at the Democrat National Convention. They are the parents of a fallen hero. They simply wanted to tell their story and that of their son. The man did all of the speaking and near the end, asked Donald Trump “Have you ever read the Constitution of the United States? I will lend you my copy” producing a mini version of the Constitution.
This man and his wife, as it turned out are Muslim and are immigrants. Their son was a Muslim. He gave his life in Iraq in Iraq and saved his men and several civilians as well. The man’s name is Khizr Kahn, the woman is Ghazala Kahn, and their son was Capt. Humayan Kahn. Capt. Kahn was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart for his actions.
But, Mr. Trump, the same person who claims to have the temperament to become our next President, just had to lash out at the Kahns. See, he took great umbrage at being asked if he ever read the Constitution or told that he has “sacrificed nothing”. That was just too much for the self-contained Trump.
His first target was Mrs. Kahn. He claimed that he wanted to hear her speak. He hinted that she was “not allowed to speak” at the convention. He even asked if Clinton’s speech writers wrote Mr. Kahn’s speech. Mr. Kahn, it turns out, gave the speech without even using notes, that makes the notion that he had it written for him is dubious at best.
Then, he went on the talk shows, mostly at Fox News to tell Americans how he has sacrificed “so much” in his life. His idea of “sacrifice” is that “I worked very, very hard” in my life. Apparently, Mr. Trump thinks that “working very, very hard” during your life is akin to “sacrificing” for your country as Capt. Kahn did.
Oh, but it gets even worse in the Trump For President camp. His spokesperson claims that this whole mess isn’t about the Kahns but about radical Islamic terrorism. When asked about what that has to do with the Kahns, he simply repeats that it is about “radical Islamic terrorism”. I guess a Muslim whose son was killed in the line of duty and his father speaking up about it questioning Mr. Trump over the incident is the same thing as “radical Islamic terrorism” to the Trump camp.
But, if think that was bad, you haven’t seen anything yet. Another Trump surrogate got in the act. Roger Stone moved the bar even lower. He tweeted: “Mr. Kahn more than an aggrieved father of a Muslim son, he’s Muslim Brotherhood Agent helping Hillary”. And but he has proof. He linked to a conspiracy theory website that claims Capt. Kahn was really killed before a secret mission was finished.
“Is it likely that Khan’s son was killed before his Islamist mission was accomplished? Only another type of investigation will determine that,” the author writes. “Do they ever mention how many soldiers have died because of Muslim traitors? Do they ever bring up how many Christians in the US military were killed? Yet the modernists and homosexuals continue to attack Christians.”
So there! What more proof do you need? It is clear to anyone without an ounce of brain tissue or common sense that the Kahns are really Muslim Brotherhood and Capt. Kahn was really a traitor! So say the Trump camp. Maybe someone else can answer this question, because I sure as hell cannot. What is wrong with these people?
Over the weekend, John McCain blasted Trump for his personal war on the Kahns. Ryan and McConnell gave very little attention to the matter except to say he shouldn’t have said anything about them. Neither gave any strong condemnation to Trump’s actions or remarks. And, Trump keeps going on and on and on……
After the DNC, Trump was so incensed about being attacked, he tweeted that “I wanted to hit them. I wanted to some of them so hard their heads would spin.” That really sounds like a man who has his emotions under control. That really makes me want to run out to the polls and vote for Donald Trump. NOT!
Since last week, Donald Trump has encouraged the Russians, or any other government, to wage cyber war against the United States and its citizens. He wanted to “hit” the speakers at the DNC because he didn’t like what he heard. He attacked the parents of a fallen hero of the United States Army. He attacked a General who dared not support his campaign and spoke out at the DNC. He even criticized Hillary Clinton, what a surprise, but not for what you think. He criticized her for “not congratulating me on my historic victory and nomination.” Say What?
All last week, the Democrats accused Donald Trump of not having the temperament or the sanity to be President of the United States of America. They claimed that electing him would place a megalomaniac with thin skin and hurt feelings in control of the nuclear codes and that would be very dangerous.
And what does Donald Trump do in reply? Does he offer up his policies and ideas to make our country better for everyone? Does he offer any solutions to any problem other than “building that wall”? Does he try to show us that he really is sane and has a good temperament?
No, he proves that the Democrats were absolutely correct. He attacks a “Gold Star Mother” because he “wants to hear her speak”. Well, Mrs. Kahn has spoken several times since that night. And, she isn’t saying what Mr. Trump wants her to say, so he continues to attack her. His surrogates even go on to say that Capt. Kahn was really a traitor who just happened to be killed before he was able to complete his mission of killing “Christian soldiers”.
If you are really an American who loves this country and wants to see it get better for our children and grandchildren, there is no way you can support such a heartless, amoral, evil person such as Donald Trump. He stands for everything I served to fight against. He stands for everything against the U.S. He is worse than his orange skin and dead tribble on his head. He really is evil incarnate.
The very nightmarish idea that he could become our next president is complete madness. Yet, here we are living that madness. If there is one thing in this country that really sucks, it is Donald Trump. Only your vote can stop this madman. His party seems to love him and want him as their standard-bearer.
