Gold Star father rips ‘disgusting’ Donald Trump Jr. for comparing his life to son now interred in Arlington Cemetery

Appearing on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, Gold Star father Khizr Khan expressed disgust with Donald Trump Jr. over an excerpt in his book where he claimed the Trump family had sacrificed as much as military members who died in combat and are interred in Arlington Cemetery.

Khan, whose son Humayun was killed at age 27 in Iraq as a U.S. soldier while protecting his men from suicide bombers, has been a frequent critic of the president and reacted strongly to the president’s son attempting to portray himself in a heroic light.

NONE of them

But I still believe it will.

6. I share your sentiments, but I stopped "waiting for karma to hit this family" long ago

We all know Trump will never face any consequences for his crimes while in office. And after he's defeated in 2020 the new administration will simply say "it's time to move on for the sake of the country." Karma, if such a thing exists, will have to come from a higher power.

4. Trump's Viet Nam was avoiding catching VD from all the sex he was having. In his own words.

23. This is like when Justin Bieber went to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam.

And walked away thinking that Anne Frank would have been one of his fans. Oh wait, this is way more disgusting.

8. The trumpTROLLS and GOP are going to try and smear LTC Vindman

The trump/Putin/Klan trolls and the GOP are going to try and smear LTC Vindman

...by using the story from a LTC Hickman who said Vindman talked to Russian
Officers and said disrespectful things about America----

Well HICKMAN is a QAnon conspiracy FREAK!
A review of Hickman's past tweets found more than 100 in which he recirculated or commented on QAnon-related theories, including hoaxes about Satanism and paedophilia, and until recently he had the hashtag #Q in his profile.

Shallow and soulless, and those are his strong points.

11. You watch.

I'm almost certain we can expect Little Donnie Jr. to be nominated for president by the Cult of Trump in the next 8 years. I predict he'll fall flatter than his brother Eric's personality in that endeavor, but the Trump family foresees a family dynasty in the making. Illusions of grandeur run in the family. So does narcissism.

14. Illusions of grandeur, indeed.

Consider Ivanka taking her rightful place at the table with world leaders....guiding them to resolutions for international life and death issues.

12. .. and donnie wrote in a book! which gave him time to think about what he wrote

it never occurred to him how silly it is to compare losing business (a lie by the way) to the sacrifices given by those who died in battle

13. Disgusting. Don Jr's assertion that Trump's family sacrificed as much as a guy

who died heroically on the field of honor is despicable.

I'm sure having Trump as a father was no picnic, but to compare the odious, grasping selfishness of the members of this family to the selfless actions of a dead soldier is...well, no words really.

18. I agree with Mr. Khan, but where are the rest of the Gold Star families?

There should be thousands trashing the trumps for their lack of 'service'.

22. I saw Khan on MSNBC

He stood up against Trump Jr. Sacrifice is losing your beloved child...sacrifice is not driving past a cemetery of those who gave their lives for your freedom and feeling sorry for yourself that you had to campaign for your Dad.
