How Trump Sees Himself Each Time He Passes a Mirror
Trump Team Says He is Evolving
(He sees himself)
Heavily opinionated and for good reason: It's all true.
How does Trump react when confronted with this own words and actions? Does he apologize or rephrase the original words or insults – nope he doubles down or worse, blames the person or group of persons – like he combat death of Army Captain Humayun Khan, a Muslim-American KIA in Iraq in 2004 who was mentioned a the DNC by his father Khiz Khan.
Case in point: Eleven Gold Star Families penned a letter to Trump demanding an apology for “repugnant and personally offensive” remarks he made toward the parents of Capt. The letter was published by Vote Vets Action Fund, the progressive advocacy wing of the political action committee for Vote Vets.org.
The letter, released Sunday night, comes after Trump's response to the parents Khizr and Ghazala Khan, who made headlines at the Democratic National Convention last week. Khizr Khan gave a speech in which he called Trump's proposal to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the U.S. unconstitutional, while making the dramatic gesture of pulling a copy of the Constitution from his pocket and asking Trump directly: “Have you even read the United States Constitution?”
Khan went on to say that Trump had “sacrificed nothing and no one,” in his scathing rebuke of Trump. Then Trump opened fire again.
This time on the on the Sunday show ABC this week with George Stephanopoulos Trump said he had made a lot of sacrifices for the country, including employing thousands of people. Trump also insinuated that Khan’s wife Ghazala, who stood beside him as he spoke, was silent during the speech because of her religion. Mrs. Khan later told ABC News she did not speak at the convention because it would have been too painful.
“Your recent comments regarding the Khan family were repugnant, and personally offensive to us,” reads the joint letter published on Vote Vets.org. “When you question a mother's pain, by implying that her religion, not her grief, kept her from speaking public.”
Then adding insult the original injury Trump naturally tweeted. He said his perceived lack of respect for the family of a fallen soldier served as a distraction from issues that were more pertinent to the presidential campaign and precisely tweeted:
“This story is not about Mr. Khan, who is all over the place doing interviews, but rather RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM and the U.S. Get smart!”
Trump is not correct. It is about the Khan family and their loss / not Trump’s gain, and for sure, it not about Donald J. Trump “The Insulter-in-Chief Wannabe” who wants everything all the time to be about himself and no one or anything else except that keeps him limelight no matter how or why. He is the typical me, myself, and I PR road hog.
He also almost always says: “Wake up America.”
You know what Mr. Trump that is the first thing I can agree about what you have ever said and guess what? America is wide awake and on November 8th we will put you back where you belong – back in your Ivory, no wait, Golden Tower and not in the White House. Better in the sewer where you belong with all the nasty rats.
So, yes, we are awake and we paying attention – very close attention. You sir, are about to become a piece of junk in the landfill for waste material.
