In my opinion, the Democratic Party stooped to a new low when they used the Muslim Gold Star Khan family to attack Donald Trump on worldwide TV with slanderous or near-slanderous accusations and misquotes of our Constitution. Gold Star people are, for the most part, untouchable; and everybody knows it.
To persuade Mr. Khan to attack Donald Trump in the political arena was a disgrace. They had to know that Mr. Khan lost his “untouchable” status when he entered into politics.
In short, he became fair game; and Mr. Trump was well within his rights to respond in his usual manner, which he did.
An American fact of political life: If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen.
