You remember this guy, who appeared at the Democratic convention with his pocket Constitution. Democrats are fawning over him and using him to oppose President Trump’s agenda. Enough of him hiding behind the tragedy of his son’s death for political purposes. Take the kid gloves off.
From the Washington Examiner:
Khizr Khan, the father of a Muslim-American soldier killed in action that President Trump skewered after the Gold Star father spoke at the Democratic National Convention last summer, is becoming a top spokesman for politicians and groups seeking to undo Trump’s executive order curtailing travel and barring some refugees from certain countries.
But Khan’s turn in the spotlight this time is overtly partisan, which could take some shine off his halo and open him to criticism from which he was mostly immune due to his status as a bereaved parent.
On Wednesday he threatened to lead a global boycott against “anything and everything Trump.” On Thursday, he offered to “walk barefoot” to help elect Democrats to the House. And he said he will push until Trump, whom he referred to as “casino man,” makes all his financial dealings public.
“The only solution to these atrocities is to gain control of the Congress,” Khan told Democratic lawmakers during an unofficial hearing on Trump’s executive order.
