Over the last week we’ve heard a lot of Trump defenders go along with their god-emperor and come up with new and even worse ways to attack the Khan family, including Mr. Trump’s own theory that Mr. Khan is angry that Mr. Trump wants to keep out radical Islamic terrorists. Roger Stone, a crackpot advisor to Mr. Trump, is on the conspiracy theory track that Captain Humayun Khan was actually an al-Qaida double agent.
Of course not all of them are anti-Khan. Since these are Republicans and Trump supporters, you know that at least one of them was going to come up with a way to blame Captain Khan’s death on President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Katrina Pierson went on CNN to do just that.
It was under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton that changed the rules of engagement that probably cost his life. So I don’t understand why it’s so hard to understand why Donald Trump was confused about why he was being held responsible for something he had nothing to do with, while Hillary Clinton had EVERYTHING to do with.
Except that Captain Khan was killed in 2004 when Barack Obama was a state senator in Illinois and Hillary Clinton was a senator from New York and the people making the decisions about the rules of engagement were George W. Bush and Donald Rumsfeld.
At this point “blithering idiot” doesn’t seem to cover it, but what’s worse is that there’s a large base of people out there who are agreeing with her.
