DISGUSTING: Khizr Khan Uses Dead Son to FUNDRAISE for Democrats



The anti-Trump Gold Star father, Khizr Khan, who used the death of his son to trash President Trump at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, is now using his dead son to campaign for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father who spoke at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, is sharing his story to help the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraise in an attempt to oust House Republicans in the 2018 election.
“I love this country. My son died for this country. And like you, I watched Donald Trump’s latest attack on Gold Star families in horror,” Khan said in the email. “While Donald Trump’s words are devastating, they’re not surprising. Donald Trump can’t comprehend the sacrifice from our service members and families like mine.”
“I know the only way to stop Trump is to win a Democratic House. I’d walk barefoot to every district in the country if it means Democrats win. But I can’t do it alone. I need you fighting with me. Will you chip in $1 before midnight?”
Trump encountered criticism last week for his responses to Gold Star families after Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., said Trump told the widow of one of the four soldiers killed in Niger this month that her husband “knew what he signed up for … but when it happens it hurts anyway.”
Wilson was with the widow in a limousine and heard the conversation via speaker phone, although the White House denied that account Wednesday.
Khan, whose son U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan died in 2004 while he was in Iraq, also criticized Trump during an interview with NPR on Monday about the alleged conversation.
“He does not have the capacity to understand what it takes to serve this nation in harm’s way,” Khan said. “[Trump] is their commander in chief, these are his sons and daughters. How dare he disrespect, how dare he utters a word of disrespect, indignity.”
Four U.S. Army Special Forces were killed during an ambush of a joint patrol of U.S. and Nigerien forces along the Niger-Mali border in early October.
At least 20 Americans have lost their lives serving the nation since January.
