“Let me ask you, have you even read the U.S. Constitution? I will gladly lend you my copy,” he said as his wife stood by his side. “Look for the words ‘liberty’ and ‘equal protection of law.’ Have you ever been to Arlington National Cemetery? Go look at the graves of the brave patriots who died defending this country.”

“You have sacrificed nothing” – Khizr Khan, Father of Captain Kahn of the United States Army, a Muslim Soldier killed by an explosion protecting his fellow soldiers.

Those were the harrowing words aimed at Donald Trump this past Thursday during the Democratic National Convention. Khizr spoke to Donald in response to his bigoted remarks about American Muslims, including those who serve our great country.

Donald Trump fired back in his narcissistic usual way and completely desecrated not only the memory of Captain Khan but veterans of every race, religion, color and creed who have ever given their life to protect Donald’s right to be an ignorant fool.

“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 done― I’ve had― I’ve had tremendous success. I think I’ve done a lot.” – Donald Trump in response to Khizr Khan

Donald Trump, in his infinite “wisdom,” went on to directly attack a female, because let’s face it, he can’t stand toe to toe with a man. In reference to Khan’s wife’s somber silence during Khizr Khan’s speech, Donald Trump questioned if she was “allowed to speak” hinting at a religious oppressive stereotype that simply does not exist.

“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,” -Donald Trump in response to Khizr Khan’s wife not speaking at the DNC.

Khizr Khan actually asked his wife to speak during the convention, but she declined because she was in too much pain.

“Please. I am very upset when I heard when he said that I didn’t say anything. I was in pain. If you were in pain you fight or you don’t say anything, I’m not a fighter, I can’t fight. So the best thing I do was quiet,” – Ghazala Khan to ABC News.

If Trump made the ultimate sacrifice by succeeding as a business man, the rest of the world has yet to see it.

He has multiple failed businesses from airlines to bottled water.

Businesses ranging from travel search engines to his own brands of steaks and vodka.

Not surprisingly, (as someone who frequently defaults on his bills), his mortgage company also failed.

Donald Trump, you are a slap in the face to men and woman serving this great nation and are unfit to hold any political office.

You are a racist, coward, misogynist, and bigot.

You should stick to just ripping people off like your many lawsuits suggest.
