Righteous, Boo! This is from

from a man who calls Hillary a "bigot" and other Orwellian language. One thing I'm sure trump knows is that.. he's an empty shell and the only way he gets any traction is lie and insult his head off and hope there's enough suckers to get him into the debates.. or maybe not.

Another thing.. he needs to release his tax returns or stfu. Both would be better.

Thank you!

Mahalo for that lovely pic of Ghazala and their son Humayun, Haveadream~Beautiful Thank you to Ghazala Khan~

#Yes We Do~

Zing!! Obama was the change and Hillary will build on that.

trump's chump "change".

August 1, 2016

Yes, Ghazala has plenty to say.. trump doesn't listen but we do..

When Humayun was sent to Iraq, my husband and I worried about his safety. I had already been through one war, in Pakistan in 1965, when I was just a high school student. So I was very scared. You can sacrifice yourself, but you cannot take it that your kids will do this.

We asked if there was some way he could not go, because he had already done his service. He said it was his duty. I cannot forget when he was going to the plane, and he looked back at me. He was happy, and giving me strength: “Don’t worry, Mom. Everything will be all right.”

Exactly, Cracklin Charlie.. eloquently said. trump doesn't get to question

Ghazala Khan.

She used it as an opportunity, though, to brilliantly call him out again..

Ghazala Khan: Trump criticized my silence. He knows nothing about true sacrifice.


Donald Trump has asked why I did not speak at the Democratic convention. He said he would like to hear from me. Here is my answer to Donald Trump: Because without saying a thing, all the world, all America, felt my pain. I am a Gold Star mother. Whoever saw me felt me in their heart.

Donald Trump said I had nothing to say. I do. My son Humayun Khan, an Army captain, died 12 years ago in Iraq. He loved America, where we moved when he was 2 years old. He had volunteered to help his country, signing up for the ROTC at the University of Virginia. This was before the attack of Sept. 11, 2001. He didn’t have to do this, but he wanted to.

I post so late at night that there's not too many around to see them in Hill's Gr... so I've been posting in GD2016.. It's just really nice to be there without getting attacked by anyone.

Right this minute I am focusing on Gold Star Mother, Ghazala Khan and her husband Khizr..

This coming from a repub is even more Potent! Sure Dems know this and

blast it.. but this gop Mark Salter has more juice.

McCain's revenge! He says so well!

He’s a charlatan, preposterously posing as a business genius while cheating investors, subcontractors, and his own customers. He’s rich because his father left him a great deal of money. He couldn’t turn a profit with a casino, for crying out loud. The epitome of someone who is famous for being famous, his business model consists mostly these days of selling his surname to a group of (often foreign) investors, who slap it on some vulgar monstrosity that consumers naturally associate with a vulgar reality TV celebrity.

He possesses the emotional maturity of a 6-year-old. He can’t let go of any slight, real or imagined, from taunts about the length of his fingers to skepticism about his portfolio. So shaky is his psyche that he’s compelled to fits of self-sabotage to defend his self-regard, as was the case in his racist, politically devastating attacks on U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel. He views the powers of the presidency as weapons to punish people who’ve been mean to him – reporters, rival candidates, critics. “They better be careful,” he warns.

Mahalo, ailsagirl!
