In my opinion, the Democratic Party stooped to a new low when they used the Muslim Gold Star Khan family to attack Donald Trump on worldwide TV with slanderous, or near slanderous, accusations and misquotes of our Constitution. Gold Star people are, for the most part, untouchable, and everybody knows it. For Mr. Khan to attack Donald Trump in the political arena was a disgrace. They had to know that Mr. Khan lost his “untouchable” status when he entered into politics. In short, he became fair game, and Mr. Trump was well within his rights to respond in his usual manner, which he did.
An American fact of political life: If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen.
