For @MeghanMcCain

You have a very selective memory.

Do you remember who STARTED the Khan imbroglio?

@MeghanMcCain Khizr Khan went onstage at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, and this is what he said:
@MeghanMcCain Part One:

"Donald Trump, you're asking Americans to trust you with their future. Let me ask you, have you even read the United States Constitution? I will gladly lend you my copy. In this document, look for the words 'liberty' and 'equal protection of law.'"
@MeghanMcCain Part Two:

"Have you ever been to Arlington Cemetery? Go look at the graves of brave patriots who died defending the United States of America. You will see all faiths, genders, and ethnicities. You have sacrificed nothing—and no one."
@MeghanMcCain So, at a political event, Khizr Khan attacked Trump in a totally dishonest and particularly gutless way, in that Khan used his dead son as a shield from criticism.

Trump hit back ten times as hard.
@MeghanMcCain Khan made no distinction between legal illegal immigration.

That's dishonest.

And yet Khan brought up the rule of law.

He can't have it both ways. The rule of law means we control our immigration.
@MeghanMcCain And the Khans sacrificed nothing.


So of course Trump refused to let the Khans use their dead son as a shield.
@MeghanMcCain The Democrat plan backfired.

Trump gets to defend himself. You of all people, Meghan, should appreciate a spirited, vinegary self-defense, considering that your father had mastered it.

The average American is sick of double standards.
@MeghanMcCain If people use an underhanded, bad-faith attack on Trump, I want him defend himself in a way that shocks the hell out of people like you.

I regret all the time I put into defending Republican presidents. I regret all the time I put into defending your father.
@MeghanMcCain Republican presidents and your father USED ME.

By the end of George W. Bush's second term, I couldn't stand the sight of him.

"Let history decide."

Well, it has. GWB is a failure.
@MeghanMcCain There's absolutely nothing wrong with the way Trump comports himself, because IT'S A STRATEGY.

This strategy makes Never Trumpers concentrate on...tweets.

In the meantime, things are happening all over the world.

You're missing out on EVERYTHING.
@MeghanMcCain The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is planting the flag so that the Turks can't go forward.

Wasn't that brilliant of Trump?

The SAA has no equipment. All they have are flags.

But that's all they need.

@MeghanMcCain Bashar al-Assad is a sedated figurehead now. THERE ARE NO IRANIANS OR HEZBOLLAH ANYWHERE IN THE PICTURE.

The Kurds and the Syrian government made a deal, and then the KURDS told us we could withdraw.

Trump averted another war.
@MeghanMcCain See, Meghan, we were headed for a war between the Turks and the Kurds and a war between the Kurds and the Syrian Arabs.

Trump helped the Kurds make a deal with the Syrians, and then the SAA came into Kurdish-held territory to plant the flag.

@MeghanMcCain I started this by talking about Khizr Khan, whose son United States Army Captain Humayun Khan was killed in Iraq in 2004.

The Khans should be angry at George W. Bush, not Trump.

The Iraq invasion--WHICH I SUPPORTED AT THE TIME--was a disaster.
@MeghanMcCain The plan was that we would defeat Saddam's forces in as short a time as possible, and then the Iraqi army and police would keep order.

@MeghanMcCain We attacked with such speed and violence that the Iraqi armed forces and police went into hiding and wouldn't come out.

Since we didn't have enough troops to occupy Iraq, our men and women became sitting ducks.

It happened before. In the Korean War.
@MeghanMcCain We didn't have enough troops or weapons in the Korean War, and Truman REFUSED TO ADMIT IT.

He called the war a "police action."

It took a full year for the US to get its act together.

And Bush replicated the exact disaster.
@MeghanMcCain THE SAUDIS told us to not overthrow Saddam Hussein.

We didn't listen, and 4400 men and women were killed in combat.


For Trump, every life is precious. And you're upset about TWEETS?!
@MeghanMcCain I want Trump to continue tweeting and infuriating his enemies.

It prevents them from sabotaging him.

In closing, every family with members in the armed forces should thank God for Trump.
@MeghanMcCain Preventing war is GOOD.

And I have no idea why I should have to make that point.
