Trump: Khan Was Mad I’ll Keep Out Terrorists

And he’s going to keep digging that whole with his tiny, stumpy, cheeto colored fingers:

In an interview today with a local ABC affiliate in Columbus, Ohio, Donald Trump suggested that what angered critic Khizr Khan was Trump’s aggressive efforts to prevent terrorists from entering the country.

“It’s a very big subject for me, border security is very big. When you have radical Islamic terrorists probably all over the place, we’re allowing them to come in by the thousands and thousands. And I think that’s what bothered Mr. Khan more than anything else. And, you know, I’m not going to change my views on that. We have radical Islamic terrorists coming in that have to be stopped. We’re taking them in by the thousands.”

Primitive Technology: Forge Blower

I invented the Bow Blower, a combination of the bow drill and forge blower to make a device that can force air into a fire while being easy to construct from commonly occurring natural materials using only primitive technology. I began by fanning a fire with a piece of bark to increase its temperature. It is this basic principle I improved on throughout the project.

John McCain Denounces Donald Trump’s Comments on Family of Muslim Soldier

From the NY Times:

WASHINGTON — In a remarkable and lengthy rebuke of his party’s nominee, Senator John McCain sharply criticized Donald J. Trump’s comments about the family of a fallen Muslim Army captain, saying, “While our party has bestowed upon him the nomination, it is not accompanied by unfettered license to defame those who are the best among us.”

Mr. McCain, a war hero whose service and capture in Vietnam was also once derided by Mr. Trump, had stayed largely silent over the weekend as Mr. Trump’s feud with the parents of Capt. Humayun Khan brewed, waiting until Monday morning to release a prepared statement.

“In recent days, Donald Trump disparaged a fallen soldier’s parents,” he wrote of the parents, Khizr and Ghazala Khan. “He has suggested that the likes of their son should not be allowed in the United States — to say nothing of entering its service. I cannot emphasize enough how deeply I disagree with Mr. Trump’s statement. I hope Americans understand that the remarks do not represent the views of our Republican Party, its officers or candidates.”

But he is still endorsing Trump. Lovely.

John Oliver on Trump: he’s “a damaged, sociopathic narcissist”

It starts around 13:00:

Over the weekend, Donald Trump picked on an unusual target, even for him: the family of a fallen soldier. Specifically, Trump went after Khizr and Ghazala Khan, who criticized Trump in a stirring speech at the Democratic National Convention for attempting to ban Muslims — like them and their son, who died in war — from entering the US.

Last Week Tonight host John Oliver couldn’t believe it.

“The main takeaway from these two weeks is that, incredibly, we may be on the brink of electing such a damaged, sociopathic narcissist that the simple presidential duty of comforting the families of fallen soldiers may actually be beyond his capabilities,” Oliver said. “And I genuinely did not think that that was a part of the job that someone could be bad at.”

First, Trump suggested that Ghazala didn’t speak at the convention — only Khizr did — because her Muslim faith stopped her from publicly talking. “For a start,” Oliver said, “his wife has explained that she chose not to speak because she gets too upset when she sees images of her dead son’s face, you fucking asshole.”
