It is less than 100 days to the American Elections on November 8, 2016. But I don`t think these will ever end.
The attacks are bizarre – Trump is complaining that he was viciously attacked by Khizir Khan, the father of a Muslim-American soldier, Captain Humayun Khan, who died in Iraq and was awarded the Gold Star medal for bravery. He said some nasty thinks about the family but defended these statements because he said he was just defending himself.
He forgets the nasty things he and his fellow speakers said about Hillary Clinton and the other Democrats. Yet none of them engaged in silly reprisal tweets.
This is called maturity.
In a political campaign one tries to attack the ideas of the opponent and also the character of the opponent. This is the usual game.
A very important element of this fight is when to tack and when to counter-punch. I try to teach my kids that – “Let it go.” There is no need to respond to everything.
Trump is blowing up his campaign by taking wild swings at every perceived slight and offence. Sure his supporters love this but this does not help his campaign. He might think he will win a few battles here and there but in the end he will lose the war.
I just want this to end…
