During the course of his bizarre presidential campaign, Donald Trump has made countless scandalous statements that would have disqualified a normal candidate. He has mimicked a disabled man, insinuated that a conservative reporter asked him a tough question because she was menstruating and suggested that the Republicans’ 2012 nominee Mitt Romney would have traded oral sex for his endorsement.
So far, Trump’s Teflon veneer has held firm. Support from his hard-core supporters has not wavered, and it is not likely to. These are the same clueless voters who elected George W. Bush, twice.
But just hours after the general election began, Trump disparaged the parents of Army Capt. Humayun Khan, who was killed in action in Iraq in 2004. In particular, Trump smeared Capt. Khan’s mother, Ghazala, by insinuating husband forced her to be silent while he addressed the Democratic National Convention Thursday night.
Now Ghazala Khan is speaking out.
