I haven’t added fuel to the fire of late, so I might as well now……
The ol’ pile on Trump re the Khans.
Here’s what those talking heads don’t get. Trump talks like a lot of people. (sure – a bit loony, but like a lot of people) He says whats in his head. He questioned being questioned about sacrifice. Did Trump sacrifice a son? No – of course not. Is sacrificing his time/energy to build businesses while making money a comparable? No – of course not, but he lashed out like many do.
Presidential? No. Human? Yes.
Then of course he can’t shut up. He hasn’t been “trained” properly and will never be trained. So he brings up Mrs. Khan. Yes, many of us know Muslim women who speak for themselves, but we also read of those with genital mutilation, those who aren’t allowed to drive, or talk to boys or kiss before marriage or, or, or, or. Trump has no filters, but for the media to act like his thinking is beyond the pale is pretty stupid. No – it’s ‘in the tank for Hillary’.
For Obama to go out and suggest Trump is unfit for office by making an unfiltered statement is ridiculous compared to the stunts of the Democratic nominee and the people who continue to support her.
Obama said that denunciations from Republicans of Trump’s remarks “ring hollow” without an accompanying withdrawal of support.
“I don’t doubt their sincerity. I don’t doubt they were outraged by some of the statements that Mr. Trump and his supporters made about the Khan family,” Obama said. “But there has to come a point in which you say, ‘Somebody who makes those kinds of statements doesn’t have the judgment, the temperament, the understanding to occupy the most powerful position in the world.’ “
Surely you could say something even worse here about the Dems. Democrats have yet to renounce the lying and blame shifting of Hillary Clinton. They have yet to denounce the politics of personal destruction or the shady money deals in Haiti for the Clinton Foundation. There has to come a point where you realize the nominee doesn’t have the temperament, the understanding to occupy the most powerful position in the world..”
Unless of course, the most powerful position in the world is all, and I mean all about what you look like on TV.
