What Donald Trump Should’ve Said & Still Needs to Say to Khizr Khan, Muslim Grandstander

By Debbie Schlussel

trumphatkhanfamily

Like you, I’ve been watching the non-stop crazy train surrounding Donald Trump’s comments to and about Khizr Khan, the father of a fallen soldier in Iraq who used his son’s death for a grandstanding speech at Hillary Clinton’s coronation convention a/k/a the DNCon. And I think Donald Trump could have used this moment to educate America about the real “contributions” of Muslims in the U.S. Armed Forces and about the “contributions” of the Clintons.







I think Donald Trump made a mistake questioning the “emotions” of Khizr Khan and his wife, Ghazala Khan. And that doesn’t mean that I don’t believe their motives are suspect. They are very suspect. They used their son’s death and their grief for politics. And by the way, their son died well over a decade ago (in 2004), not recently. They used their son’s death to endorse a political candidate. That’s what Trump should have pointed out. They aren’t the first to do so.

While it is the ultimate sacrifice when your child dies in service to America, that doesn’t mean you are pure as the driven snow and whatever you say is the gospel. We’ve seen many such suspect parents of the fallen. There is anti-Semitic Cindy Sheehan a/k/a “Jihad Cindy #2,” who used her son’s death in Iraq for far-left politics and Jew-hatred. There’s the family of Pat Tillman, who used his death for endless Pat Tillman Trutherism, as if his death–whether from the bullets of friendly fire or that of the enemy–was any less tragic and valorous in battle.

And then there are the Khans.

If I were Trump, I would have turned Khizr Khan’s most soundbited statement around. Khan told Trump, “You have sacrificed nothing and nobody” for America. Instead of giving the silly, braggadocious, and tone-deaf response that Trump gave about how he’s sacrificed to create businesses and jobs, I would have asked, “Mr. Khan, what have Bill and Hillary Clinton sacrificed for America?” I might have added, “Hillary sacrificed her basement bathroom closet for a server to jeopardize American national security and the identities of our foreign operatives. Is that your idea of sacrificing for this country?” Whitewater, cattle futures, the Rose Law Firm records, Monicagate, e-mails, the McDougals, the Iran deal sell-out of which Hillary was the chief architect, Benghazi, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseam, ad absurdum, ad infinitum–is that your idea of how Hillary Clinton sacrificed for America? Trump should have turned this on Hillary and challenged the Khans to answer these questions and tell him what exactly is Hillary’s sacrifice for America, when her whole life is a textbook example of me-me-me narcissistic selfishness.

I also would have added that any of the Gold Star parents who spoke at the Republican National Convention could have also asked that same question of Hillary in their speeches, that it’s a zero-sum game on that front. I would have pointed out that the parents of Benghazi murder victims sacrificed their lives at the hands of Hillary because she ignored their cries for help; that Hillary Clinton sacrificed the lives of others–others’ like the Khans’ son–for no reason because she couldn’t bother to answer their calls in the middle of the night when they were being hunted by members of Mr. Khan’s religion.

And then, there is Mr. Khan’s religion–the sole reason he and his wife were on the podium at Hillarypalooza. The Khans were up there to show us that, “you see, Mr. Trump, we Muslims died serving America, while you want to keep us out.” Sadly, Trump doesn’t want to keep them out, and he has now updated his phony position on this for the (by my count) 17th time, saying he’ll only ban those from “terror countries,” which means that the French-born Muslims who murdered the Catholic priest at the Normandy Church would have been able to come here prior to their bloody beheading of this elderly cleric.

Despite Khan’s fiery speech, the truth is that few Muslims and few Muslim families have sacrificed for America. In fact, the vast, vast, vast majority of those who’ve died for America are Christian. The next largest number of those who’ve died for this country are those most reviled by the Khans’ religion: the “evil Zionists,” the Jews. The number of Muslims who’ve died for America is a tiny, tiny, infinitesmal fraction of a fraction of a fraction. The Khans are an anomaly.

There are very very few Crescent-marked tombstones at Arlington National Cemetery–a relative handful among hundreds of thousands bearing Crosses and Stars of David. Much media attention is being paid to legions of liberal morons going to visit the Khan son’s grave at Arlington, but the truth is he’s a blip among legions of Christians and Jews (and, yes, more Wiccans than Muslims) who died for America. I called Arlington’s PR people months ago (when Marco “Kinky Boots” Boobio Schmubio Rubio was blathering on at every debate about all the Muslim graves there), and they couldn’t tell me how many Muslim graves there are there, but they acknowledged it’s a very tiny number among hundreds of thousands of others.

And here’s another truth: while the Khans are Sunni Muslims, most among the microscopically tiny number of Muslims who enlisted and went to Iraq were Shi’ite Muslims who wanted to “liberate” Iraq from Sunnis and kill Sunnis. They weren’t there for us. They were there for their own religious jihad and to be rewarded in “paradise.”

Then, there are the parents of Muslims in the U.S. military who weren’t at DNCon to speak for Hillary, but should have been. How ’bout the parents of Nidal Malik Hasan? We saw how he appreciated America and the every chance our country and military gave him–putting him through college and medical school and promoting him every step of the way despite his jihadist ways. Thirteen Americans’ lives were sacrificed at his altar of Islam. Did the Khans apologize for their religion’s actions in the U.S. military as perpetrated by him? Nope. And we saw many, many other Hasans in our military since 9/11. Remember John Allen Muhammad, the Beltway Sniper? Yup, he served.

And don’t forget Noureddine Malki a/k/a “Mr. X.” We don’t know his real name (because–shocker!–he lied and was never properly vetted because it’s impossible), but he’s a Muslim immigrant, just like the Khans. And he served as a U.S. Army translator, telegraphing our troop movements to Al-Qaeda, so the group could inflict maximum damage. A lot of American soldiers died because of the “service” of this Muslim who “sacrificed” for America.

And there are so many others I’ve written about on this site over the years–Muslims who served in America’s Armed Forces and murdered our military personnel or murdered other Americans later. Here are just a few of the names: Wassef Ali Hassoun (who faked his kidnapping in Iraq, went AWOL, twice, and was on the NCIS Most Wanted List), Assan Akbar (who shot at fellow American soldiers in the name of Islam) and a host of similar others, such as Ahmad Al-Halabi, Ali Mohamed, Ryan Anderson, Semi Osman, Jeffrey Leon Battle, Hassan Abujihaad–all of them Muslim and all of them engaged in jihad against fellow troops and fellow Americans. Mr. Khan, why is your son the outlier and the anomaly, and why are these traitors the norm for those of your religion who serve?

That’s what Trump could have–and should have–asked, but he has neither the balls nor the knowledge and basic research skills to do so.

And then there are the Khans themselves. Will they condemn Hezbollah? Will they condemn HAMAS? Will they speak out–as Muslims who lost a son to the terrorism of their fellow Muslims–against the Hezbollah bombing and mass murder of nearly 300 Americans at the U.S. Embassy and Marine barracks in Beirut in 1983? Will they condemn the ongoing HAMAS murder of Americans, including New Jersey college student Alisa Flatow? Don’t bet on it. But Trump should have asked them. Trump should have challenged them. Then, the ball would be in their court.

Trump could have scored a lot of points with any of these questions, any of these rejoinders. The Khans wouldn’t have an answer. They’d be in a Catch-22 position. And the tables would have been turned on them. Plus Trump would have educated a lot of ignorant Americans about the real behavior of many American Muslims who claim to be American patriots but are patriots only to the four corners of the koran.

Sadly, Trump blew it. And instead, he’s in a silly sandbox war of words with the Khans that he can’t win. And maybe he doesn’t want to win.

***

One other thing I must add: I couldn’t help but notice that Mrs. Khan’s hair was showing (and under Islam, she might turn some guy on and he would be justified in raping the “uncovered” woman). Devout Muslim women cover their hair completely–usually with a hijab–and she did not. I wonder how devout the Khans actually are. But, at the same time, I wonder if Mrs. Khan wore a loose scarf instead of a hijab to make herself look more human and palatable, less oppressed. Either way, it raises a lot of questions.

Being “uncovered” like that in most Muslim countries could get her killed. And that’s the real Islam, not the “sacrifice” of her son.

One wonders if there’s a connection between Trump’s pulling his punches insofar as what Debbie had articulated about all he should have said, and his lead in the polls being wiped out in a New York minute. (Never mind a populace that has been fully indoctrinated by a so-called “educational” system all through college and bombarded with round-the-clock one-sided leftist propaganda from the media and Hollywood [which explains why they’re so enamored of socialism and Communism, and were loyal lemmings for Bernie Sanders], coupled with the media’s long being in the tank for ‘Cankles’ who, as stated, has cared and still cares far more about her own career than about anyone else’s safety or even their lives.) One main reason for his surge in the primaries, outside of “sticking it” to all the leftist mobs hired on short notice by Soros and the DNC, was his “straight talk,” regardless of whether he meant it or not.

But then again, besides Melania Trump admiring First “Thang” Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Hussein Obama Idi Amin Dada, Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton are best buds. Sheesh . . .

Furthermore, didn’t Hillary question the “emotions” of the mother of one of the Benghazi Four, who in a speech on the first night of the RNC held “Cankles” directly responsible for her son’s death (and those of the other three)? “Mrs.” Clinton’s reaction of “oh, she doesn’t know what she’s talking about” reminds me of a corrupt manager of hundreds of apartment buildings in NYC who uses that same type of line to belittle and discredit anyone who challenges him on his ethics (or lack thereof). (For that matter, Obama reminds me of that same person – in other words, a total sociopath who couldn’t care less about anybody else.)

ConcernedPatriot on August 1, 2016 at 12:01 pm

    Whoever told Trump to go on George Steponallofous’ show is a paid traitor. Only THINK TANK LOGIC can justify such a move. This is how RINOs finished off Sarah Palin before she was out of the starting gate.

    LEARN FROM CANKLES: never do an interview unless you know that each and every question will be helpful to YOUR campaign.

Thank you, Debbie, for the REAL Straight Talk. Be healthy, be careful, keep swinging that hammer.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on August 1, 2016 at 12:29 pm

he could have really nailed them, but he decided to pull his punches and make inane remarks.

Worry on August 1, 2016 at 12:53 pm

    I don’t think he pulled his punches. I think he’s incapable of punching when a well-thought out, challenging response is required. He can only punch when he wants to lob a personal insult. He doesn’t have the intelligence, discipline or apparently, advisors. If he has any good advisors, he apparently doesn’t seek their counsel.

    One other thought about Mr. Kahn: the Constitution does not protect foreign citizens trying to enter the US from discrimination. They have no protections. So waiving the Constitution in the air was misleading.

On behalf of the 6885 U.S. KIAs. Mr. Khan, I grieve for the loss of your son. However, I grieve even more that you used his sacrifice and loss as nothing more than a damn politicized stunt. May God forgive you for it.

Chas11561 on August 1, 2016 at 1:06 pm

Yeah, another reason I ain’t voting for Trump. He’s such a goose!

Love DS’ columns. She always gets to the heart of the matter and exposes the Mooooooooslim kalbehs and their dopey Dhimmi enablers. She is proven correct every day and the diaspora gets more retarded, PC and truth hating. Glad I am on her side. I am more passionate because I see more Dhimmis and JINOS lap-dogging Moooooslims everyday. Don’t look at France, don’t look at Germany, loooooooove the ROP! I am tired of these mental-cased malevolent frauds!! We will get rid of Islam one day and as Skzion always says, Imagine a world without Islam. It will be so much better!!!

Skunky on August 1, 2016 at 2:18 pm

Yes, Trump could have done much better, but, as the saying goes, in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.

Little Al on August 1, 2016 at 3:48 pm

Good article as usual Ms. Schlussel, but I think that a good portion of you folks here are lacking from what occurred over the weekend was that, I presume that Donald Trump was “set up” by that reporter from ABC George Stepswhateverhisnameis to look merely a tad foolish to make a false-cause situation about him (Trump) arguing from sacrifice regarding from a business perspective.

More likely Trump was set up in an un-winnable position to argue from a “hem-haw” manner of not saying much, but and however, it was Mr. Khan who originally made the verbal attacks on Mr. Trump at the DNC convention last week Thursday to possibly advance the cause for Ms. Clinton.

And lastly, Mr. Khan during the course of his left-wing preaching speech at the convention FAILED to mention who precisely killed his son who fought during the Iraq war, it was “Muslim terrorists-jihadis” who killed his son during that war, where BTW Hillary Clinton voted for as US Senator. So nonetheless, I still am going to vote for Donald Trump for the US Presidency (he’s a non-ideologue and sees human-nature for what it is to his own credit) despite this little situation where he did NOT attack “Gold Star parents”, etc.!

Sean R. on August 1, 2016 at 3:59 pm

Just more distractions from what’s ailing America. All of this tit-for-tat crap will doom us to Hillary.

JeffT on August 1, 2016 at 5:01 pm

Yes, let’s forget about the Muslim soldiers and ex-soldiers who have killed their comrades or other Americans. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3715233/Faces-American-Muslims-died-fighting-country-9-11-revealed-fallen-soldier-s-father-tells-Trump-sacrificed-no-one.html

Also, why should you get special credit for what other soldiers and their families do without the expectation of fanfare?

Worry on August 1, 2016 at 5:20 pm

My question would be what have Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton really done for veterans over the years?

Worry on August 1, 2016 at 5:36 pm

This whole thing is so stupid!
So what if a Muslim was killed while fighting for America.
That doesn’t change the fact that we need to stop letting more Muslim terrorists immigrate to America.
The two issues have nothing to do with each other.

Second point, Mr. Khan asked if Trump had even read the Constitution. Well, what part of the Constitution is Khan claiming that a President Trump would be violating?

Steve G on August 1, 2016 at 5:48 pm

Nicely argued, Debbie. Very clearly Papa Khan is a Muslim operative. No one else has a host of “exhibits” available at the start of a Twitter “career.” I have to laugh at the morons who take his “pocket Constitution” seriously.

Trump is trying desperately to avoid being pegged as “anti-Islam,” but this inevitably backfires.

skzion on August 1, 2016 at 6:36 pm

This man injected himself in the political foray, he can definitely be criticized. (Mr. Khan). Is Trump life a movie-The Wrath of Khan-2016

MrBigBrain on August 1, 2016 at 7:38 pm

Debbie and Skunky
I seriously doubt that America could handle a true empire builder like James J. Hill, George Westinghouse, or Andrew Carnegie.

While Trump is a DAMN YANKEE who is winning votes with an 1890’a to early 1900’s Democratic platform. Hillary Clinton is selling our technology to the Russians through the Clinton Foundation. She is nothing but a Benedict Arnold and Julius and Ethel Rosenberg type–a pure traitor.

The Marxist Press has conveniently forgotten about Bill Clinton hanging around with convicted Wall Street Democrat speculator Jeff Epstein, specializing in getting convicted for holding FEMALE slaves captive, the 12 and 14 year old females.

I sure as the hell ain’t voting Jill Stein or the other candidate.

Unfortunately James J. Hill, George Westinghouse, and Andrew Carnegie are not on the ticket.

Confederate on August 1, 2016 at 7:48 pm

This latest sincerely insincerely sincere Democrat pounce-fest belongs in a high-lite reel of Great Moments in MSM Misdirection; Debbie’s post belongs fixed on Trump’s computer screen until its message sinks in: UP YOUR GAME!

It’s to be either Trump or Clinton elected in November. The thought of President Clinton has me all in for Trump. Period!

lee of the lower case "l" on August 1, 2016 at 8:21 pm

I happen to think that the Khans were a bait set up for Trump for a situation he couldn’t win. If he spoke out against them, as he did, he’d look boorish. And if he said silent, it would look like acquiescing in their statements.

The point that Khizr Khan made at the DNCon was that had there been Trump’s ban on Muzzies, their Humayun would never have made it to the US. After all, he was born in the Emirates, while they were from Pakistan. But would that have been such a bad thing? While Humayun Khan wouldn’t have been in the US, neither would have been the hundreds of Muslims who since 9/11 have been conducting Jihadist attacks in the US. While the ban would have kept out the Khans, it would also have kept out the Farook couple of San Bernardino, the Tsarnaev brothers, the Afghan in Orlando, the Kuwaiti in Chattanooga and any number of other Muzzies.

The thing that stood out about the Muzzies at the DNCon and elsewhere is the sanctimony of their stands. B’cos Humayun Khan – a rare example among Muzzies – died fighting in Iraq, all Muzzies must be assumed to be as loyal as he was and admitted into the country, no questions asked about their religion. But how many Muzzies are there who made the conscious decision to go to Syria to join ISIS? Or elsewhere, the Taliban (like John Walker), al Qaeda (Adam Gadahn) and so on?

Humayun Khan’s death was a golden opportunity for the Khans to use as a pretext to push for their opposition to any ban on Muzzies from entering the US.

The only thing that I find worse than them is the Republicans across the board rallying to Khan’s side against Trump. If they lose one or both houses of Congress, they’d have fully deserved to.

Infidel on August 1, 2016 at 9:15 pm

Was Khan junior’s death an act of jihad on his part? His contribution to following Allah’s will? There are some serious questions about this soldier’s behavior that put his men in harms way before the IED blew up.

Sioux on August 1, 2016 at 9:35 pm

Note too Khan’s connection to Saudi Arabia & the Clinton Foundation A trap on the part of the Clinton Camp?

PaulaMalka on August 1, 2016 at 10:13 pm

In order to believe anything the Khans told us, we have to believe what politicians tell us.

The thesis Trump and Republicans have forgotten is SLAVERY.

The Democrats promise all this stuff will be FREE to Americans. Free college tuition. Free medical care. (You’ll note that Democrats have never suggested that gasoline or petroleum products should be “free”.)

If something is free, then somebody has to work for free to provide it. When a college professor (or other school teacher) whines about being underpaid and overworked, without resources to do the job, ask them a question. Why do you vote for Democrats who insist your product should be FREE? How do you expect to be paid a competitive wage when you vote for people who insist your end product be FREE?

If someone is working for FREE, they’re slaves. For some reason, the Republicans don’t get that. They have forgotten what their party is all about.

I don’t make the rules. I just cope with them. Sometimes I even get to exploit them. It just so happens that in my field of endeavor the Democrats (against my personal preferences) want electricity to be MORE EXPENSIVE… to save the planet don’tcha know! As Yakov Smirnoff would say: “What a country!”

But for teachers and medical workers, there’s no such sympathy. Their end product must be FREE.

Ya know! If those Democrats would insist that petroleum derivatives (like gasoline and diesel fuel) were FREE, we wouldn’t have ISIS or the Khans. We wouldn’t have Iranian nukes either. In fact, FREE petroleum derivatives would probably do more to “save the planet” than anything the Democrats or Republicans are offering. But hey! Don’t hold your breath waiting for that freebie. Petroleum feeds the U.S. political racket and it isn’t going to change soon.

Maybe that’s what Donald Trump should have asked. If the Khans were going to endorse the Democrats for FREE health care and FREE schooling, why not offer FREE petroleum and petroleum by-products? If American school teachers, college professors, doctors, nurses, health-care technicians can do their “fair share”, why not the UAE?

I think we know the answer. The whole political process is driven by money. That’s all Donald Trump knows about our political process. That’s all he NEEDS to know.

Parading the Khans out there at the DNC while dumping Debbie Wasserman-Shultz as DNC chairman was sick. DWS’s acquiescence to it all was sick. Bernie Sanders’ capitulation was sick! Even the “progressives” have no convictions.

And just so I don’t barf up my dinner, I’ll not think about how Jewish-Americans will probably vote for Democrats on the order of 75%-80% this November. Ooops! I did it. Gack! I can’t type the rest of this comment while staring down the nearest waste basket.

Gotta go now… FAST.

Sincerely,

There is NO Santa Claus (aka TINSC)

P.S. How’s that for a rant?

I know Mr Khan hurt and angry that he lost his son but why he pick at Donald Trump . Trump don’t want people’s come to ours country till we can be sure who they are right now ours country in troubles , with ours polices got killers and ours country’s .
We need Mr Trump because he not kiss the White House ass ours the houses ours any one , Because he love ours country.Then we need to back him up to tearing him down .American stand up and take ours country back .

Charles Giles on August 1, 2016 at 11:39 pm

Debbie nails it. The problem is that Trump is at the end of the day a boorish know-nothing, easily manipulated by Leftist Lying. He doesn’t know the first thing about Islam and why Muslim fanatics behave the way they do and as a consequence can only tie himself in knots. Plus he’s such an egomaniac, that he has no insight into anything, he represents a strong anti-intellectual current in American Life and Politics, that if anything has only gotten worse. Something I thought impossible twenty years ago.

America needs an Allen West, a Geert Wilders, a Tommy Robinson aka Stephen Lennon, those of that ilk. Those who know the truth about Islam and are able to articulate those truths without coming across as emotional and boorish. Yet America and I mean the American Right here is not interested, that goes against the American Right’s anti-intellectualism and American politics’ love for silly theatrics and circus pomp and baloney. And if anything the American Left is even worse, Clinton is going to be like Obama, but on steroids. And the corruption oh wow.

Americans will get the government they deserve. America deserved Obama, and they will deserve what’s coming next. God help ’em. There is no happy ending here, just following Europe to doom and destruction, but in its own American way.

Lawrence on August 2, 2016 at 1:40 am

The “should’ve” is useless when Trump himself is an all-about-my-glory narcissistic assh*le. What advice can you give to someone who think he’s sacrificed the most, who boastfully and narcissistically claimed “he alone can save America”? Who are you but his vote slave? This is what you get when you voted for a super thin-skin ass clown who couldn’t gracefully let a perceived criticism passes without staging spiteful and vicious personal attack. All Narcissists do that. That’s their nature.

I bet the Dems have found a quite perfect tactics to derail Trump since his small hand fingers are so itchy not to respond to every perceived criticism. The Dems could just employ a bunch of “not-nice” critics to make the narcissist Trump busy all the time since he can’t refrain from responding with his ass fart.

The “shoulda” that can still be consequential is asking why you or many voted for such a boorish ass like Trump in the first place and what wiser thing to choose next time? For this time, the seed has been sown, the Trump’s voters will reap what they sow no matter what your reason is in voting for him. Claim like DS that she’s voted for Trump but don’t believe in Trump is just useless excuse. No matter what your excuse is, you voted for the ass clown. So deal with the consequence, reap what you sow.

HardyW on August 2, 2016 at 3:09 am

Deb:

You indeed nailed it! I couldn’t have articulated the scene anything like you did. All I know is that when I saw the Khans, I could sense a horrible cynicism present at the DNC.

Throughout the middle east, over 250,000 Muslims have died at each others hands for not being Muslim enough. That’s all I need to know! The notion that the Khans represent typical Muslim immigrants to the U.S. is an obvious lie.

The Democrats never tell you that Cindy Sheehan ran against Nancy Pelosi for Congress. They never tell you that Sheehan’s campaign office was ransacked during the campaign. That’s what Democrats do. The Khans will find that out the hard way.

No! We don’t need an Allen West, Gert Wilders or Tommy Robinson. We need someone with $12 Billion in his pocket who can withstand the onslaught of Democrats who will crush their opponents. That’s why Bernie Sanders prostrated himself before her majesty at the DNC. He knew better than Cindy Sheehan!

No! It doesn’t take a village! Sadly, it takes a billionaire. It’s always the stinkin’ money, Deb. Whatever Trump was unequipped to say, he has in resources to stay in the race till the end.

Still, he lost an opportunity to win this one. I certainly agree with you on that. It seems quite unlike him. Kinda makes ya wonder if he can (or wishes to) deliver a knock-out punch as we head toward November.

Sincerely,

There is NO Santa Claus (aka TINSC)

Trump’s initial popularity in this race was because he took a stand on national security, i.e. the wall thing and the Muslim refugees thing. He wants to stop illegal aliens from coming and he wants to keep Islamic terror out. But he let the left turn it into a “race” issue. That’s what has to be fixed in this race. It’s not about race, it’s about security.

Phil Lipofsky on August 2, 2016 at 11:13 am

Thanks, Debbie. Excellent insights.

I’m still wondering what the Constitution had to do with anything Mr. Khan had to say? He yapped about free speech, but what does free speech have to do with it? The he yapped about liberty and immigration, neither of which involve the Constitution.

Gary Sack on August 2, 2016 at 11:30 am

I don’t know how to say it, but we need a constitutional amendment to be able to defend ourselves against people who harbor murderous ideologies us if they are on our soil, one that trumps (pun intended) the freedom of religion thing. Muslims collectively hate America and are collectively guilty of supporting terrorism against us and should be collectively dealt with.

Red Randy on August 2, 2016 at 1:11 pm

    Oops, that’s “murderous ideologies against us if they are on our soil”

    Red Randy on August 2, 2016 at 1:14 pm

A ban on Muzzie immigrants is not unconstitutional. The press is on attack. They are concerned about theatrics not truth. If the Don is not careful, they will keep hitting him up and he will respond, on the trashy stuff like the Khans, and he will lose the election. Woe is us.

B-, b-, b-, but . . .

the Constitution sucks, remember? The Founding Foddas were just a bunch of slave owning, hypocritical old white guys, and, and, and . . .

it’s a living, breathing document, so we can say it means whatever we want. I know, because “everyone knows that.” At least, that’s what they tell me all around here in NYC, where I’ve been stuck since last August 19th. And everybody in NYC was saying the same thing 50 years ago, so, so, . . .

All good points, Deb, but I suspect that even if he said all those things, the left leaning MSM and lefty blogs would have spun his words and slammed him. So, he might as well say what he wants to say as I don’t think it makes a difference. Can you imagine CNN, CBS,,NBC, or ABC, etc., ever reporting anything flattering about Trump.

The leftist media’s being that much in the tank for ‘Cankles’ (given what was revealed about CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC et al. being in hand-in-glove collusion with the Democrats) is but one reason why Hillary has an undeserved lead in the polls now. See my first post for this article, above, for my other thoughts.

Oh yeah, and Khan involved in a business that deals in green cards (a.k.a. “instant citizenship”) for Muslim “migrants.”

Trump had multiple lines of counter-attack available to him, a number of which Debbie spells out. And yet more that bear on revelations of Kahn’s time in Saudi Arabia, his reverence for Muslim Brotherhood “thinker” Sayid (?) Ramadan, his positive writings regarding sharia law, and his legal work promoting Muslim immigration.

Additionally, there was an obvious retort to Kahn’s claim that if Trump’s restrictions had been in place, his son would not have been here to serve honorably in the US military. True as far as it goes, but by the same token if the proposed restrictions had been in place, the Blind Sheikh would not have been in New Jersey promoting attacks against New York, the Tsarnaev brothers wouldn’t have been here to carry out the Boston Marathon bombings, and that demon couple wouldn’t have been in San Diego to murder their former colleagues.

Debbie once again you provide your regulars and others to this site with a clear and concise analysis of a current situation. Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort needs to tell his boss to come here and read it as he could learn a thing or two. I know what people like me who support him say. We haven’t had anyone fight the democrats during a presidential election since 96. Sure in that time Bush won but he let chumps like Kennedy, Schumer, Maxine Waters and Moran beat up on him daily that by the time he left office in 08 we got Obama! Trump has to learn that sometimes you don’t have to fight with an axe beating your opponent bloody. Sometimes to dismantle a democrat you need a steady hand with a scalpel. Kahn could’ve been dispatched that way and it would’ve been over. Sure the pressitutes in the media like girly man George Streptococcus would’ve gotten their panties in a twist but so the hell what. Trump should’ve saw what Kahn’s speech was. It was clear political fodder for the Hilbag and the DNC. The use of his son’s death to do it was just not right in my book. Now it’s turning out just like the Transformers there’s more than meets the eye with Khan. His ties to the Clinton Foundation and the Muslim Brotherhood are just some of the things coming out about this man. He now has said that he wants out of the spotlight saying that he’s a private citizen. Too late buddy. In this political season when you get up on stage for one of the two people who want to replace PRESBO (heavy on the BO) and shoot off your pie hole you ain’t a private citizen no more. If that were the case then you should’ve stayed private. Like I said Trump needs to quit shooting in the dark and start using night vision googles. I’ll still vote for him because having that vindictive, corrupt, lying, evil tempered, harridan in the White House will be just as bad if not worse than the abject doofus we have now.

Thank you, Debbie! Excellent response! Please contact the Trump organization for your services in helping to elect him president and defeat the most corrupt nominee EVER, Crooked Killary Clinton.
He needs you!

You boners for trump are so incredibly stupid and unpatriotic. How can you justify, rationalize, and lie to your self, more importantly your soul, every time that buffoon opens his trap? Just be honest, you like him because he wants to put black and brown people back in their place. Its cool, I get it. Just admit it already to yourself, we already know. Just admit your racist, because like i said, we already know. How you can just gloss over his billion lies, his literally insane flip flopping, and his utter lack of human decency. For the party of GOD and Family Values, you people have no fucking moral core.
Lets see…
He has been married 3 times, and cheated on 2 wives. That alone if you people had any character would disqualify him right then and there. He is not a catholic, christian, Episcopalian, Lutheran, nothing! He believes in Donald J Trump, and has Never asked him for forgiveness. He has never read the bible, let alone an entire chapter. He goes against all your “Stern” fam values and you love to uphold. Hes pro gay people, which you people cant seem to grasp that they are gods children as well, AND, that under your values and morals flag, you should treat everyone like you would want to be treated. Debbie You are a blonde cunt, and Roger Ailes should have harassed you too. You think bc you have a cute blog you can just say all the hateful things you want. Well thanks to our 1st amendment you can, but it just makes you sound like a shallow, small, pathetic little white woman who feels the whole world is against her and prosecuting her. because that is how Christians repeated feel when asked. So to sum it up, You ppl voting for Trump better take a long look in the mirror and see if you like what is staring back. Because i can almost assure that your mothers did not raise you to hate others, pick on people, name call, bully, and most of all, discriminate.

Lets just be 100, The guy is a fucking moron. He couldn’t pass a 4th grade civics or history test if he took it today. There isn’t enough time on planet earth for his “advisers” aka nepotism at its grossest, to teach him the ins and out of government and foreign policy. Instead he is going to learn:

What are the 3 branches of government?
How does one ratify the consitution?
Who was our first President?
Why is the flag red, white, and blue?
Why are they called articles of the Constitution and not chapters?
Name 3 commitees of goverment vital to US operations?
Why did Washington Chop down that cherry tree?
Who are our allies and why?
Why we hate Russia

and last but not least

Why cant i date my daughter?

trump needs Debbie as a campaign manager. plain and simple. she has the street smarts to rein in his overbloated defensive posturings about his business record. he loses ground every time he does that. as Debbie says he needs to keep the attack focused on Hillary. and imagine Debbie going on the talk shows to be interviewed when they want to talk to the campaign manager. she’ll chew em up and spit em out like she did to coke-snorting wannabe MLK Al Sharpton who looks like he overdosed on Slim Fast so he can have a few extra years alive to try to get as many successful white people fired from positions of authority and influence, that he can.
