During a combative interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday, Donald Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson questioned whether the candidate owed an apology to the parents of fallen soldier Humayun Khan and seemingly blamed President Obama and Hillary Clinton for his death, which occurred in 2004 under President Bush.
Eric Trump, whose media-training software maybe needs some reprogramming, appeared on “CBS This Morning” on Tuesday to discuss the ongoing feud between his father and the Gold Star Khan family. “Would your father be willing to apologize and move on?” CBS co-host Norah O’Donnell asked him. The answer to this question, obviously, is “no,” but that is not what Eric said.
This morning, CNN interviewed Khzir and Ghazala Khan, whose DNC speech about their son Army Capt. Humayun Khan has proven to be the most lasting moment of either convention. With Donald Trump and his surrogates feuding with the Khans, CNN turned to their Trump foot soldier, deposed campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who, despite being reportedly fired by Trump’s children, may still be quasi-working for Trump while ostensibly neutrally opining about him on television.
In the wake of Donald Trump’s bigoted attacks on the parents of a fallen Muslim soldier, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan issued separate statements on Sunday defending Khizr and Ghazala Khan while strangely failing to mention the Republican presidential candidate who insulted them.
Before spending the weekend going back and forth with DNC speaker Khizr Khan, whose son died serving the U.S. Army in Iraq, Donald Trump sat down with George Stephanopoulos to talk about Putin, foreign policy, and just how much Michael Bloomberg sucks at golf. It is, perhaps, one of Trump’s most embarrassing election interviews yet.
Offering to lend Donald Trump his copy of the Constitution, the father of a Muslim soldier killed fighting in Iraq humiliated Donald Trump on stage at the Democratic National Convention, pointing out, rather accurately, that Trump has never had to make a major sacrifice in his life.
