This has been a “bad week” for Trump. What it has been is a week of unrestrained hatred by the left wing media.
First there was the the saintly Khan family, which is being lionized by the left. The son was killed by a car bomb by another Muslim. Donald Trump opposed the Iraq War.
Khan is a promoter of Islamic Sharia Law in the U.S. He was a co-founder of the Journal of Contemporary Issues in Muslim Law (Islamic Sharia). Khan’s fascination with Islamic Sharia stems from his life in Saudi Arabia. During the eighties Khan wrote a paper titled Juristic Classification of Islamic [Sharia] Law. In it he elucidated on the system of Sharia law expressing his reverence for “The Sunnah [the works of Muhammad] — authentic tradition of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).” A snapshot of his essay can be seen here:
I don’t know how valid this is but he is certainly a supporter of Islam and is attributing to Allah, Trump’s “mistakes.”
The father of martyred United States (US) soldier Captain Humayun Khan, Khizr Khan, has on Thursday said that the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is unacceptable to the US. He said that Allah makes people like Trump to make mistakes to discredit them in public eyes forever, reported Dunya News.
The Khan imbroglio was not the only controversy. Nude photos of Trump’s wife, Melania, appeared all over the internet. This began during the primaries, which Trump attributed to Ted Cruz.
But immigration attorney Michael Wildes, who worked for the Trump Organization, told Univision that the GOP nominee’s wife obtained the green card in 2001 “based on marriage,” though she did not marry Trump until January 2005.
I have no idea where this is going but “immigration lawyers” will no doubt make a big deal of any issue they find.
There was a “crying baby” issue raised by leftists until they were forced to admit it never happened.
The enterprising fact-checkers at the Washington Post tracked down two sources — an eyewitness to the proceedings and the mother of said baby — and determined that Trump was, in fact, telling the truth Friday about how he treated the bawling infant.
The media has been cheering the news that Hillary widened her lead in polls.
What now ?
Trump has to get his campaign back on track. Everybody knew the media would demonize him, just as they demonized Romney in 2012.
NPR didn’t like his speech on Economics much, although they did provide a transcript.
He has made a gesture toward Republican unity by endorsing Ryan, McCain and Kelly Ayotte although I doubt voters care much about this.
I think McCain might lose his primary and I have donated to Ryan’s opponent in Wisconsin. Now what ?
The Hillary campaign is still worried about an “October Surprise” and her lies have kept the issue of her trustworthiness in public view.
Another terror attack would probably elect Trump. At present, I think it is a tie and we will see what happens.
It continues to be a wild ride.
