Bringing in Khizr Khan, father of a fallen Muslim U.S. soldier, seemed like a stroke of genius for Hillary Clinton. As he waved the Constitution in Trump’s face, she must have been smiling as she was about to waltz onto the stage to accept the nomination.
Some things don’t turn out the way you hope. Sorry, Hillary.
Many have attributed a swing in the polls towards Hillary this week not only to Khan’s speech but Trump’s seemingly knee-jerk reaction. How could he attack a Gold Star father? It turns out he knew the risk he was taking, because each day the onion pulls back more and more and America sees who Khan really is—and learning who Hillary associates with.
What he said today could be the final nail in the coffin. From Dunya News:
The father of martyred United States (US) soldier Captain Humayun Khan, Khizr Khan, has on Thursday said that the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is unacceptable to the US. He said that Allah makes people like Trump to make mistakes to discredit them in public eyes forever, reported Dunya News.
Talking exclusively to Dunya News on program Nuqta-e-Nazar, Khizr Khan said that he often gets emotional while speaking in public but when nature wants you to do something, words come by themselves. He said his speech was a gift from the God. “I showed the constitution only because I wanted to remind people that nobody could be discriminated against in the name of religion”, said Khizr.
It has been abundantly clear whose side Khan is on. He is for Sharia law. He helps Muslim immigrants buy their way into our country. And he is deeply connected to the Clinton Machine. Now these words are going to spread, and Hillary has got to be shaking her head at the genius of Donald Trump to turn this lemon into lemonade.
