“What he said originally — that defines him . . . people are upset with him. He realizes, and his advisers feel, that [his original statement] was a stupid mistake. That proves that this person is void of empathy. He is unfit for the stewardship of this great country. You think he will empathize with this country, with the suffering of this country’s poor people? He showed his true colors when he disrespected this country’s most honorable mother. . . . The snake oil he is selling, and my patriotic, decent Americans are falling for that. Republicans are falling for that. And I can only appeal to them. Reconsider. Repudiate. It’s a moral obligation. A person void of empathy for the people he wishes to lead cannot be trusted with that leadership. To vote is a trust. And it cannot be placed in the wrong hands.”
. Ding ding ding!

So I take it he will be voting third party or staying home.

If Trump is smart he won't engage this family further. If he were smart.

Yeah, maybe the man will say something that disqualifies his candidate further. :lol: Does this idiot realize that pretty much everything he said applies to Hillary?

What will happen now that Khan has been made into a celebrity, is that he will be paraded everywhere and be turned into another Elizabeth Warren, attacking Trump at every opportunity.

Oh and btw, the only thing Hillary sells is snake oil. This man pretty much hates what he loves.

Not Warren, he is the new Cindy Sheehan. Liberals will elevate anyone to celebrity status who is willing parlay their loss into political gain.

You're right - Cindy Sheehan is a better comparison. So he's going to be the guest of honor at any number of events over the next few months, and the flow of interviews with him will continue.

But as has been said over and over, his skin is much too thin to ignore any negative comments made towards him.

The Khans are doing what the press has failed to do, hold him responsible and keep holding him responsible for vile attacks like this. He should have been "smart" enough not to engage them in the first place.

Somebody should stand up on a stage and pull out a pocket copy of the Koran from their breast pocket, wave it in front of the audience, and talk about how ISIS is violating the Koran.

Yep. And as for Trumps supposed insult of this guys wife, Islam is a misogynist religion where women are treated like crap by men. Her being seen and not heard would fit right in with that backward culture and should be something that liberals--the supposed defender of women and womens rights--should call out. Instead they ignore it for political gain. Talk about soulless...

That would fun considering that much of what they are doing is in the Koran.

Are you going to argue that Islam treats women as equal to men? What you refer to as stereotype is fact that you wont deal with because of your own political ideology.

Yeah, because the Koran and the practices found in several countries doesn't prove it right. :lol:

I am aware of how women are treated, and poorly at that. But I am also aware that not all Muslim men adhere to this. Trump just kept up attacking and looking like an ass as he dug in deeper.
Trump handled this poorly, much like a spiteful child spouting, "I made sacrifices as well".

This is a man who began his campaign by attempting use John McCain's history as a POW as an insult. He has no respect for the service of military men and women. It didn't hurt his numbers then and I doubt it will now.
