Donald Trump provides amazing fodder. You’re living under a rock if you’re not following the very public display of hatred in a presidential candidate against a Gold Star Family of the U.S.A. Turns out this family has sacrificed the life of their son who was killed in Iraqi Freedom. Turns out this family is from Pakistan. Turns out this family immigrated to America and became citizens. Also turns out that Mr. Khan carries around a copy of the U.S. Constitution in the inner pocket of his suit coat.
At the Democratic National Convention, Mr. Khan and his wife were center stage to denounce the alleged Moslem hater Trump may be considered to be, and Mr. Khan, an articulate lawyer, challenged Trump and asked, “Have you read the Constitution? What sacrifice have you made?”
And, off we went to the races. The back and forth has been going on for five days straight and is still raging. Sadly, Trump can’t help himself; he gets aggravated when someone criticizes him and challenges his person.
Is Trump a Moslem Hater?
There are too many stories flying around the Internet about this debacle self-made by Trump himself. He could have handled this situation in a variety of empathetic ways, but nope; he had to go on the attack. He even attacked Mrs. Khan for standing silently next to her husband on stage.
What would you do as a mother who lost her son? When you walk onto an international stage and see a 100 ft. image of your deceased son? She was holding on by a thread, and this guy, Donald Trump, called her out, challenged their culture suggesting she wasn’t allowed to speak (that’s an agog), and basically had no warmth or empathy in the least.

Here’s a CNN video about the entire mess, self-imposed by Donald Trump.
At the end of the day, everyone makes their own decisions. No one said Donald Trump is a Moslem hater, but It bears asking, “Is this presidential?”
