When Purple Heart Veteran decided to give Trump his Purple Heart, Liberals went ballistic! It was his award to bestow on anyone he wanted and he wanted to give it to Trump.
So Gold Star dad, Khizr Khan was sooooo unhappy that this Veteran did this that he went on CNN to say, “Donald Trump, you had the time. You did not serve.” Sounds like a glory hound to me because what a Veteran chooses to do with his own honor is his own business.
Of course this is normal campaign tactics as you may already know that Mr. Khan was paraded around at the Democratic Convention stumping for Hillary Clinton. So it stands to reason he will continue to bait Trump in order to make Trump look bad. It’s amazing that this Gold Star dad is using his title earned from the death of his son for political banter.
Another Democrat who uses the death of American soldiers for his own political purposes is Barack Obama. Gold Star mom, Karen Vaughn explains how Barack Obama disregarded 30 military families requests to NOT bring cameras or media for a photo op with their son’s caskets.
In fact, Obama actually CHANGED the policy on cameras at these events so that he could have photo ops. Here’s when they were debating the issue:
As the Pentagon reviews its policy banning cameras from Dover Air Force Base, sentiment among military families appears to be running against allowing the media to witness the return of caskets from Iraq and Afghanistan.
President Obama and Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said last week that they were reviewing the ban, which has been in place since the first Gulf war in 1991.
Families United for Our Troops and Their Mission, which represents 60,000 families of military personnel, including some who have died, asked its members last week in an e-mail whether they favored keeping the ban or changing it.
From their unscientific survey of about 600 responses, 64 percent say the policy should not be changed; 21 percent say that if the ban is changed, the families should determine media access on a case-by-case basis, and 12 percent say the policy should be changed to allow cameras to photograph the flag-draped caskets.
Apparently the policy was changed despite the objections, because months later, there are pictures of Obama at Dover Air Force Base.
Barack Obama is so despicable and his actions show he had no respect for military families.
WATCH the video interview with Gold Star mom Karen Vaughn to truly understand why she’s so upset. It all boils down to military families specifically asking Obama NOT to bring media and make their kids caskets into a photo-op and the President disregarding them… when they voiced their complaint the media ignored it.
On the other hand Gold Star dad Kahn is upset that some guy gave another guy a medal that didn’t have anything to do with Kahn… and the media covers it for over 5 days.
C’mon media could you be any more obvious that your ‘news’ is no longer news but it’s just more propaganda for the Liberal machine?
