Trump on Iraq

Donald Trump mocked Khizr Khan whose son, Captain Humayun Khan, was killed by a suicide bomber in Iraq. Trump claimed that Khan, by defending his son, had made a pact with the devil (aka Hillary Clinton). Americans left and right go apoplectic if anyone questions the motives of American soldiers or questions whether their deaths benefited anyone. Trump blamed Khan for attacking him, when Trump was the one who started the insult-slinging match. Trump has metaphorically stuck his finger in a 220V AC (Alternating Current) socket. Oddly, Trump was correct. The death of Khan benefited no one. It was a pointless, illegal war justified purely with lies. However, the deaths of Muslim-American soldiers were no more pointless than the deaths of anyone else. Trump is a racist boor. Even Republicans can’t put up with this sort of disrespect for the dead. This may mark the beginning of the end for Trump, which may well be his plan all along.
