So it should come as no surprise that he was the first Republican out of the chute to attack Donald Trump for his comments Sunday regarding Khizr Khan, the Muslim-American who lambasted Trump at the Democratic Convention as a man who had a "dark soul" regarding the Muslim immigration process. Mr. Khan's comments were clearly a set up against Trump since Khan's son, Humayan, was an Army Captain killed in Iraq serving America in 2004. It should be noted that Mr. Khan's comments about the American Constitution were incorrect since non-citizens have absolutely no constitutional right to enter America. Furthermore, Trump merely stated that he wanted to temporarily limit immigration from nations noted for supporting or producing Muslim terrorists, not immigration of all Muslims. Democrats always adjust the narrative when they think they can get away with it.
Trump's taking the issue to the press on Sunday merely served to give Lindsey and his ilk a good excuse for going after him and the pile on keeps growing. By commenting on his sacrifice, which is one involving time not his mortality, is not one he should have brought up in front of a network that is just looking for a "gotcha". He could have challenged Mr. Khan's comments after recognizing his grief and his son's sacrifice about characterizing the way he did very generally and then just moved on. And he should have realized that the Graham wing, with the likes of McCain, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan all would jump into the pile.
He might instead have even changed the issue to asking why did the Democrats bring up this one single example to highlight when they refused to recognize the thousands who have been killed and those injured still looking for care from the Veterans Administration. That would have thrown it right back in their faces instead of allowing this situation to fester. Remember, the media will jump on any small issue where they can gain traction as a way of avoiding the real issues which are a dysfunctional government and a former Secretary of State with a horrible record using them to give her cover for the truth.
Stick to your issues, Donald, don't let these clowns drag you into the weeds and you'll be fine. Make them deal with questions about why our current economic recovery is the worst since 1949? Or how about what is the purpose for bringing illegals into so many cities and towns in the middle of the night and just dumping them off unannounced? Americans want to see them squirm and they are winning issues. Don't allow yourself to be pulled under by a special situation and in so doing allow the opposition to gain the offensive. It's what Democrats do, Donald, and don't fall for that bait. The future of America is to important.
