Last week, we witnessed a very historic moment. The Democratic Party nominated the first female candidate for president on a major party ticket. There were many great speakers there as well. One of those speeches has inspired the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to pass out free constitutions.
A Muslim father tore Trump down in his speech. This man, Khazir Khan, lost a son in Iraq in 2004. He challenged Trump who said that he has “sacrificed.” Khan said:
“Have you ever been to Arlington cemetery? Go look at the graves of the brave patriots who died defending America – you will see all faiths, genders and ethnicities. You have sacrificed nothing and no one.”
Khazir Khan asked if Donald Trump has even read the constitution. He then proceeded to pull one out of his pocket. All he was missing was a big middle finger pointed toward Donald Trump.
John Oliver made this suggestion on his coverage of the convention, which aired on Sunday:
What did Trump say? He smeared these innocent people. The yelling carrot proceeded to say:
“If you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say. She probably, maybe, she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say.”
The Khan family asked if Donald Trump had sacrificed. Trump actually said:
“I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures. I’ve had tremendous success.”
I didn’t know being a rich d-bag was a sacrifice. Did he sacrifice his brain, maybe? That would explain a lot.
The ACLU has said that they are giving away free copies of the Constitution until November 8. Just use the coupon code “POCKETRIGHTS” at checkout on the ACLU website.
