Always about himself---Trump to Father of Fallen Soldier: 'I’ve Made a Lot of Sacrifices'

his first response to a searing charge from bereaved Army father Khizr Khan that he’d “sacrificed nothing” for his country, Donald Trump claimed that he had in fact sacrificed by employing “thousands and thousands of people.” He also suggested that Khan’s wife didn’t speak because she was forbidden to as a Muslim and questioned whether Khan’s words were his own.

“Who wrote that? Did Hillary's script writers write it?” Trump said in an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “I think I've made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard."

2. Trump's response was disgusting

When I saw the clip, I couldn't believe he was actually saying that.

7. I think his idea of sacrafice

would be not getting that extra helping of hummingbird tongue pie one day. Because of those damn environmentalist. You weren't able just to totally stiff everyone you shafted. Most but not all because of those Mexican judges who are prejudice. Lets all have a pity party for poor dipshit donnie.

I don't know he just makes me think of some kind of off spring from a European king and a dishonest car salesman.

9. He is helping us.

No one with a heart could fail to be moved by Mr Khan's remarks. Therefore, Trump dismissing and denigrating him will only hurt Trump. Let him talk himself into everyone else hating him as much as we do.
