One of the most powerful speakers Thursday was Khizr Khan, whose son died in 2004 serving in the U.S. war in Iraq. This is Khan addressing Donald Trump.
Khizr Khan: “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.”
That’s Khizr Khan. His son, U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan, was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart after he was killed in Iraq. While Khan’s speech was broadcast by CNN and MSNBC, Fox News did not play the speech, instead choosing to air commercials. Fox News also did not play Tuesday’s DNC speeches of the mothers of Sandra Bland, Jordan Davis and Trayvon Martin, instead airing an interview with Karl Rove and a segment about immigration moderated by Bill O’Reilly.
