@ChasKy53— trump’s reaction to the Kahn family  was immature, and showed his inability to do the tough job he was seeking in that one must be very thick skinned and take much criticism to run the country.

 

However,  knowing that the Kahn’s were gold star family made his response even more vile. But of course, trump is a very vile immature and thin skinned fool.

 

 It was a glaring display of trump’s racism, they’re on display for all the world to see.  As usual, his comments showed the world how glaringly unfit he was , and is,  for president. The only ones who didn’t see this, were those of the  same ilk.

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!

No clue no morals...how about no trump!


The Khan family was used as a political tool by the DNC to attack candidate Trump. Now, who "demeaned"?


I trump hadn't treated them the way that he did, the Khan family would not have had anything negative to say. Hmmm ............ seems that trump's actions provided the 'fuel for the fire'.  But a trump supporter brings up a "political tool' thing to try and distract from that. Distraction and denial, not surprising.

@williamb39198—Thank you for your sincere and respectful post. I still think about the dignity with which the Kahn’s presented themselves, how well they understood how unqualified trump was and is, and how disrespectful trump was to them, despite the sacrifice of their beloved son.

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!

@rk9152   At your 9:25 am

 comment

rk, out of respect, I ask you to reconsider what you just said about the Kahn’s. This couple cares about our country, honors our constitution,

are productive and educated members of our society. And supported their son’s service in the defense of our country. His last living act as a human on this earth was that of a hero to protect others...and you call them “tools”?

Please try to have some respect and honor this family. 

 

trump wants to blind us in recognizing good people who live amongst us

The reality of "those nations" is that their citizenry is predominantly Black. Norway's is predominately White.  Trump's statement(s) were racist.

 

Racists support and defend racists.


No, chas - "people" are fleeing, "citizens" are fleeing. Only you racists of the left see everything in terms of skin color.

 

nerdymom is going to need a better agent.


The heartbeat of racism is denial. Most racists deny being racist, many deny trump is racist, they deny racist things that trump says, and they deny the racist actions of trump.

 

Got anything on the topic?

If you support a racist in power, you support racism.   Even if you think you aren't racist yourself, your actions say otherwise.

Yup, just like trump,  racists bring other racists to them like magnets. Yet, many will deny it or pretend it isn’t so. Oh, they may brag about it to their friends, fellow simpletons, but in full view of all, they deny or act offended when someone tells them they are racist. 

We see evidence of it in the public realm and right here within this forum. It all comes down to cowardice. 

They deny diversity is good because they are afraid, and they deny they are racist to the general public because they are afraid. Racists are an abhorrent lot.

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!


     And so we need to call them out...but in terms that should send them running for their dictionary:  Many are the ignoble supporters of Donald, they listened to his rhetoric and bought it...now they are faced with an entirely different set of questions - that they really don't want to think about.  


 From what I’ve seen for the past year and a half or so, trump supporters don’t think, one winders if they can,  they act based on ignorance and knee-jerk reactions based on trump’s lies and deceptions.  

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!

trump demeaned the Kahn family.

The son was a soldier who did his duty.

Trump will forever be a draft-dodging coward.

Yet another of the hundreds of aspects demonstrating how much trump sucks.
