Seriously? This man is the Republican nominee for President of the United States?
Trump and Pence, seated on their gilded Louis XIV thrones, describe their sacrifices in the wake of Mr. Khan’s agonized speech on the death of his son:
Trump appeared to try to brush the speech aside, saying that Khan “was, you know, very emotional and probably looked like a nice guy to me.”
Trump also said, “If you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say. She probably, maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say. You tell me.”
Pressed by Stephanopoulos to name the sacrifices he’d made for his country, Trump said: “I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures. I’ve had tremendous success. I think I’ve done a lot.”
What a douchebag.
PS Just because the wife stood by her husband while he spoke doesn’t make her a puppet. What a tool this guy is.
PPS If this is the very best the Republican Party has to offer as their candidate, and Paul Ryan and crew stand by this misogynistic, racist cretin, as the face of the party, I weep for the future. Grow a pair and step away.
PPPS to Pence. Your tie doesn’t work with that suit at all. Also, how much valium did it take to achieve that look of being at inner peace despite sitting next to that man while he talked about how great he is?
