Khizr Khan’s moral stand against Donald Trump’s campaign for president continues, this time with Khan lofting some serious criticism at Trump’s ‘jaw dropping’ Purple Heart comments. Instead of lobbing jokes at the candidate for not knowing the Purple Heart in question was a replica or showing shock at Trump’s comments on wanting a purple heart. Instead, Khan once again strikes right at the heart of Trump and what he has achieved in his life.
“You dodged the draft,” Khan tells Anderson Cooper before apologizing for shouting. He then drops a suggestion for what Trump should’ve done on that stage:
“You had the time. You did not serve,” Khan told Cooper. “You should have pinned that back to that veteran’s chest and should have hugged him and thanked him.”
