It seems that the Trump campaign will not be able to escape the controversy surrounding Donald Trump’s attack on the parents of a fallen soldier.
One thing that cannot be said about Trump supporters is that their compassion, empathy, and respect for another human being is unbounded. They seem to back their idol no matter what dark hole of inhumanity he takes them down.
During a Nevada rally for Governor Mike Pence on Monday, a military mother confronted the Vice Presidential candidate over Donald Trump’s deplorable treatment of the Khan family.
When she initially stood up she was cheered for being a military mom, because Trump and Trump supporters love the military and the moms more than anything.
Then, she brought up Donald Trump and the Khan family, saying, “Time and time again, Trump has disrespected our nation’s armed forces and veterans, and his disrespect for Mr. Khan and his family is just an example.”
That’s when the crowd got a little rammy and started booing her. Booing her loudly, because Trump and Trump supporters love the military and the moms more than anything–unless they’re Muslim.
The woman was drowned out by the agitated crowd, but she continued on, “You have a son in the military,” she asked Pence, “how do you tolerate his disrespect?”
Pence tried to calm the crowd down and said, “I thank you for the question. ” He continued, “It’s alright, it’s alright. Folks, that’s what freedom looks like and that’s what freedom sounds like.” Then he bravely turned his back on her and never bothered to answer the question, shunning a military mom.
Even when Sen. John McCain was confronted by one of his supporters who said she heard that then candidate Barack Obama “was an Arab, ” McCain corrected her by saying, “I have to tell you. Sen. Obama is a decent person and a person you don’t have to be scared of as president of the United States.”
That Pence would act like that and allow people in the crowd to boo a mom whose son is in the military is a perfect example of what a Trump presidency would like. Acting like that is shameful for any man, but for one who has a son in the military, it’s truly disgusting.
The rabid Trump fans who booed a military mom who had the courage to ask a question, are a perfect example of what a Trump voter looks like.
