Shouldn't Stephanopoulos have handled Trump thusly?:
Trump and Stephanopoulos are both gutless hacks who aren't qualified for the job. Kihzir Khan and his wife continue to speak out: Muslim Family RespondsTo Trump: 'Shame on Him'. In an Open Letter published in this morning's Washington Post: Ghazala Khan: Trump criticized my silence. He knows nothing about t....
"Donald Trump has asked why I did not speak at the Democratic convention. He said he would like to hear from me. Here is my answer to Donald Trump: Because without saying a thing, all the world, all America, felt my pain. I am a Gold Star mother. Whoever saw me felt me in their heart.
Donald Trump said I had nothing to say. I do. My son Humayun Khan, an Army captain, died 12 years ago in Iraq. He loved America, where we moved when he was 2 years old. He had volunteered to help his country, signing up for the ROTC at the University of Virginia. This was before the attack of Sept. 11, 2001. He didn’t have to do this, but he wanted to..."
"...Donald Trump said that maybe I wasn’t allowed to say anything. That is not true. My husband asked me if I wanted to speak, but I told him I could not. My religion teaches me that all human beings are equal in God’s eyes. Husband and wife are part of each other; you should love and respect each other so you can take care of the family.
When Donald Trump is talking about Islam, he is ignorant. If he studied the real Islam and Koran, all the ideas he gets from terrorists would change, because terrorism is a different religion.
Donald Trump said he has made a lot of sacrifices. He doesn’t know what the word sacrifice means."
Donald Trump is screwing around with the wrong family. I doubt that this will be the last time that Candidate Trump sticks his Gucci loafers in his mouth and I doubt that he has much chance of getting elected in November.
The tough questions are going to get tougher and Trump will cave. He is so arrogant. Doesnt have a clue what sacrifice means. I guess now they say he had no part in making that memorial...everyone is hanging on his every word and he will be judged by them and taken down. Hillary is being watched closely too. Im glad we keep a close eye on politics nowdays. It sure is better than in the fifties when no one knew anything. Thank goodness for this age of information.
Thanks for the comments. You might want to take another look at the post for the update.
Ron, Thanks for this series of posts. Hope you continue through November.
That "man" talks through his arse. He's never worn a uniform, and has no business criticising those who do -- or their families, no matter their political or religious persuasion.
As a side note, the evening of the Nice attack, there was a pro football game in Montreal. The place kicker for the Alouettes is French, as, of course, is la Belle Province, and la Marseillaise was played (and sung by the crowd) before O Canada. Seemed to me to be a classy way of showing the Mister Digit Finger Puppet to that divisive clown and bigots like him, as well as the extremists.
We stand together, or we fall separately. One would think citizens of the United States of America would understand that better than anyone else.
McConnell and Ryan still refuse to repudiate Trump: "...neither McConnell or Ryan directly criticized Trump or his comments about Ghazala Kahn.
“Captain Khan was an American hero, and like all Americans I’m grateful for the sacrifices that selfless young men like Capt. Khan and their families have made in the war on terror,” said McConnell, of Kentucky. “And as I have long made clear, I agree with the Kahns and families across the country that a travel ban on all members of a religion is simply contrary to American values.”
Ryan, of Wisconsin, wrote: “As I have said on numerous occasions, a religious test for entering our country is not reflective of these fundamental values. I reject it. … Many Muslim Americans have served valiantly in our military, and made the ultimate sacrifice. Captain Khan was one such brave example.”
When oh when will Republican leaders take responsibility and reject Trump's dumb ass racist BS.
Yes, I saw him on cnn this morning and love his moment in the sun so he can shine on us all. His testimony that Trump is a dark soul and has no empathy is just what we need to hear. NO EMPATHY!!
This is a narcissistic age and I am seeing empathy take a beating in all kinds of ways. It is a survival tactic to have no empathy Sociopaths and psychopaths have no empathy. My mom was a classic narcissist and it was scary to see NO EMPATHY.
I sometimes see it in my granddaughter...maybe most kids have it...but at sometime you have to grow up and you feel the pain of other people like a weight. An empathic has a heavy load. A narcissist is a behavior problem...lack of empathy leads to violence and dysfunction. Can Empathy be taught? I wonder sometimes if it can and actually some lack of empathy is helpful in survival.
