Criticisms On Donald Trump's Remarks At The Muslim Parents Who Lost Their Son In Iraq

Washington Post: Backlash for Trump after he lashes out at the Muslim parents of a dead U.S. soldier

Republican Donald Trump lashed out Saturday at two Muslim American parents who lost their son while he served in the U.S. military in Iraq and who appeared at the Democratic National Convention last week, stirring outrage among critics who said the episode proves that Trump lacks the compassion and temperament to be president.

Asked to comment on the convention speech of Khizr Khan, a Pakistani immigrant whose son, Army Capt. Humayun Khan, died in Iraq in 2004, Trump described Khan as “very emotional” and said he “probably looked like a nice guy to me” — then accused him of being controlled by the Clinton campaign.

“Who wrote that? Did Hillary’s scriptwriters write it?” he asked in an interview with ABC.

WNU Editor: I am not surprised that Donald Trump reacted this way. As I had mentioned yesterday .... Gold Star Muslim Father to Trump: ‘You’ve Sacrificed Nothing’ .... Khizr Khan made the most effective case made against Donald Trump at the DNC, and Donald Trump had to respond. Should he have reacted this way .... no. Is it as bad as some in the media are portraying it .... no (see above video). Will it impact Donald Trump's support .... no. Will people remember this in November .... no. The only ones who will remember this will be the Khan family ... and even then their focus will always be on the son that they lost.

>>"If you look at his wife, she was standing there," he said, on national television. "She had nothing to say. She probably, maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say. You tell me."

This wasn’t a slip of the tongue. In an interview with Maureen Dowd, Trump took the same tack. "I’d like to hear his wife say something," he said.<<

In the TV Show, Hot In Cleveland, there is an elisode where "The Girls" are trying to teach Jon Lovitz how to "get the girl".

In it they as him to say the first thing he would say to a girl, it's horrible and deranged, so is the second thing, third thing, finally, the fouth thing is nice, complimentray and "normal",

After that, he's supposed to say only the 4th thought that comes up in his head, and to keep track, he counts on his fingers.

Trump needs to learn when to be PC, and when not to be PC. Attacking the family of a Medal of Honor winner isn't going to play well, coupled with his Veteran's Charity Fraud.

While I find Trump to be a complete ass, I find it weird when the Khan parents say THEY sacrificed. was their son who paid the ultimate price. .. Just saying. ..Plus every decent parent sacrifices for their children... Found it tasteless to use their son this way. ..but I wouldn't attack back like Trump did as they are obviously in pain and confused criticism to security issues with Muslim faith and sacrifice. .
