Okay, don’t quote me on this, folks, but Donald Trump might be imploding.
So, the Democrats managed to throw a largely successful DNC, and in its wake Trump spent the weekend criticizing the least criticizable people in America right now, the Khan family.
These folks, in case you missed it:
Donald Trump said a bunch of awful stuff about the Khans. He insinuated that Ghazala Khan, Khizr Khan’s wife, hadn’t been “allowed” to speak during Khizr’s speech (she chose not to speak because she was too upset). Trump said that he, too, made sacrifices, citing his so-called job creation and business success as examples.
Here, just watch John Oliver tell you about it.
Since Oliver’s bit last night, Trump surrogates have begun attacking the Khans, claiming Khizr Khan is an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Al Qaeda double agent, and other such foolishness.
Meanwhile, Trump claimed that the debates are “rigged.” He said that the NFL contacted him complaining about when the debates are scheduled to be held (they did not). All of that happened, of course, because Trump wants out of the debates. Clinton’s going to smoke him in a debate and he knows it, so he’s trying to dodge them.
Josh Marshall of TPM has some smart things to say about Trump and the debates.
But wait, there’s more! Now Trump’s saying that he thinks the general election in November will be rigged.
This whole thing is such a dumpster fire, you guys. Here, watch this tiny kitty in a blanket until you feel better.
