Spox: Trump Won’t Meet With Father Of Slain Soldier Because He Doesn’t Like To Make Headlines [VIDEO]

Good grief. Via Mediaite:

Trump’s national campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson said it was unlikely that the GOP nominee would reach out to Khizr Khan, the Muslim-American father of a deceased veteran who spoke at the DNC Thursday night, because Trump doesn’t like to make headlines.

Speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Friday evening, Pierson said it was “truly unfortunate” that the Democrats put Khan onstage because all it did was deepen division.

When Blitzer asked Pierson a second time if Trump would reach out to the Khan family to thank them for their son’s service, she responded, “Well, Mr. Trump has thanked everyone for their service.” She added that such a gesture would be “just another opportunity to make headlines and Mr. Trump doesn’t like to do that, particularly with matters of the heart.”


From last night:

Khizr Khan appeared on MSNBC’s “Last Call With Lawrence O’Donnell” on Friday with his wife Ghazala Khan and said there were two other individuals he wanted to address: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan. Khan called both men “patriots” and “decent human beings” and appealed to them: “Isn’t it time to repudiate Trump?” The father of fallen U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan called it “moral imperative” that both leaders tell Trump “enough.” “You are about to sink the ship of the patriot Republicans,” he warned. “If your candidate wins and he governs the way he has campaigned, my country, this country, will have constitutional crises [like] never before,” Khan said.

      • Bluto

        He’s already whining that Hillary has rigged the debates because the 1st is on a Monday & the 2nd on a Sunday during football games, as if these could be scheduled w/o the input of the GOP. Somehow that makes sense in teabagistan.

        • Philly Mike

          Hillary chooses debate dates with days ending in “Y”, the system is rigged against me.

        • Michael Rush

          Sounds like the presidency is of little importance to him .

          • TampaDink

            Which explains why he plans to charge his veep with the tasks of foreign & domestic affairs. Leaving the most important work, “making America grate again” on his “strong” shoulders.

          • Michael Rush

            He needs to focus on building more golf courses

          • TampaDink

            Maybe that is what is preventing him from any campaign events being scheduled for this weekend. (According to Rachel Maddow.)

          • Jerry Hinnant

            that is way to much of a “sacrifice” to ask of him.

        • bkmn

          Ignoring that the dates for the debates were agreed upon by the RNC and DNC a year ago.

        • BanditBasheert

          I believe that schedule was announced last September. Way before him.

        He could give his credit card number to a “Nigerian prince” and his supporters would think it was a genius move.

      • bkmn

        He is already laying the groundwork. Note debate dates were set over a year ago.

      • sword

        The Drumpf already is complaining that two of the dates occur at the same time as two ‘important’ ball games. The dates were “pre-rigged’ because the commission ‘knew’ that Donald would be the GOP candidate nearly a year ago.

    • crewman

      This is about Trump being a coward. He absolutely loves attention and making headlines. He just can’t face someone directly who Trump doesn’t have financial, political, or other influence over.

      • charliebkk

        Exactly! It reminds me of when someone asked Larry King why he didn’t call people out on telling blatant lies and BS, and he replied “I’m not that kind of journalist”. Worthless waste of oxygen.

        • TuuxKabin

          I have the keyboard impression on my forehead. I’ve never seen the man, this Wolf Blitzed you write of, just know who he is. But, FFS, he said that? I’m so going to bitch slap a friend who watches his shoe and dump my drink over his head. We’re suppose to meet for lunch soon. Damn.

          • Chucktech

            Wolf Blitzer is the laughably-so-called **journalist** in the video above. Larry King is who said “he wasn’t that kind of journalist.” Never liked him either.

          • RoFaWh

            Suggested response to the Larry Kings of the world when they try that shabby excuse for not doing their job:

            “That’s the only kind of journalist there is. You’re no journalist.”

          • TuuxKabin

            Larry King said he (Larry King) ‘wasn’t that kind of journalist’? Or WB ‘wasn’t that kind’? Few times I’ve seen Larry King it was entertainfo, uh, personalities being interviewed, not much depth, but he didn’t appear as vapid as WB. IMHHO.

          • Chucktech

            Larry King said he (Larry King) ‘wasn’t that kind of journalist.’ And he isn’t. But Blitzer is supposed to at least quack and flap like a journalist.

    • another_steve

      Begs the question of how any remotely respectable Republican can possibly support Trump. The “anyone but Hillary” and “I’ll be voting for the principles of the Republican Party, not the man himself” rationale they seem to have adopted is seriously seriously disturbing, given the thuggery of the man.

      Not sure we’ve ever seen anything quite so dysfunctional from “mainstream” Republicans.

      • Bruno

        This is why despite all their talk, the #nevertrump Republicans are mostly still allowing him to get elected. There have to be more centrist Republicans crossing the aisle and saying “we don’t agree with her on much but she won’t drive us off a cliff.”

  • Richard

    Nate Silver’s numbers are telling us that Trump is going to win the election with the electoral college while Mrs. Clinton will win the popular vote by just a tad. I find this to be scary. Can anyone here direct me to other numbers that say otherwise. If not can anyone tell me what we can do beyond showing up and voting?

    • Sam_Handwich

      that is Nate’s “now forecast”

    • Michael White

      Don’t worry it is way too early. Make sure you and yours vote.

    • Bruno

      To be a little more clear, the model you’re describing is only what would happen if the election were TODAY. And to be honest, I think it’s still inaccurate because polling hasn’t come in yet after the Democratic convention. It’s all a result of the bounce tRump got from his shitshow of a convention. Things will go back to where they were before by this week.

      And so it begins, his weaseling out of debating her will become a regular on again/off again subject. I feel certain in the end, the debates will be off. I just hope that Sec. Clinton is granted the right to meet with the moderators without him….on live t.v..

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        OK, I know many people here don’t like 3rd parties but . . . it would be hilarious if Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party (not a fan of the libertarian party but closest 3rd party to the GOP or its former incarnations) volunteered to debate her and she debated him instead. Trump would tweet angrily but she could just say “Hey, a small party candidate had more balls to face me than you. Who’s the loser now?”

        • TampaDink

          I’d be okay with that outcome.

        • RoFaWh

          I sure hope that Ms. Clinton’s staff includes at least a couple who keep an eye on JMG and send her the juicier and snarkier comments. to use as ammunition against The Orange Plague.

      There was nothing like a microagression in the actions of the Hillary delegates, campaign, whips or floor captains.

    It sickens me these people that surrounding him could buried their moral obligation to enable him to reach this stage.

    Lies Trumps’ team says about Trump.

    1. That is his real hair.
    2. He’s classy and doesn’t insult people.
    3. He’s got well thought out plans.
    4. He has the temperament not to create another WW3
    5. He’s only joking about wanting to kiss Putin’s ass
    6. He gives a shit about people less wealthy than him or frankly, anybody he hasn’t fathered.
    7. that he’s actually a billionaire, especially one whose fortune rivals Bloomberg’s
    8. He’s a self-made man whose businesses thrived
    9. That he gives a damn about LGBT
    10. That he won’t just dump the job on Pence who’ll be Cheney 2 except with more Christian sharia

    • GayOldLady

      I love it when Bloomberg called out the “self made man” BS at the Democratic Convention. Bloomberg said something to the effect. “Donald says he started with a small loan from his father, $1 Million dollars”. I’ve personally heard Donald say his father gave him a small loan of about $1 million dollars. Obviously Trump doesn’t understand that there are millions of people in this country who will work 40+ hours a week for 40 years and don’t make a million dollars in a lifetime.

      • TuuxKabin

        And many a time it’s reported that he could have amassed quite a helluva lot more by investing that money when he inherited it, rather than dragging so many people thru 4 bankruptcies.

        • GayOldLady

          I’ve also read that he could have made more money by investing. And I think he’s had 6 bankruptcies. Still I wonder what his actual net worth is? We can’t believe anything he tells us about his net worth because he’s so secretive.

          • RoFaWh

            “…because he’s so secretive.”

            ITYM “…because he’s afraid of the truth getting out.”

          • TuuxKabin

            In my peepers he ain’t worth Jack Shit. I wrote once, here at JMG, how I over heard a woman on the bus tell whoever she was with, as our side of the bus could see him/drumpf, standing at the doorway of one of his buildings: “oh look, there’s that bastard, Trumpf”. I turned around and gave her a smile, which she returned with a wink. It’s good to be in this blue bubble of Manhattan with so few rethugliscums to put up with. Except for a good friend’s boyfriend who I just may beat up at lunch today if he starts in, and he always does. The things we do for friends we love. SMH.

            Not gonna do it. There are five of us and I’m the only one to shoot him down when he starts. We’re sitting there, having a nice time, eating a good meal, pleasant background music, good people watching spot at the window, or if it’s not too hot, outside. A fat pink cloud hangs over head. Then he has to bring up drumpf. One of these days he’ll find himself sitting at the curb. And his girlfriend wouldn’t mind. She encourages me, if nothing else. So you be nice and turn your buttercheek. I’ll charge on.

            Thank you very much, I’ll be here until closing, try the fish n’ chips and don’t forget to tip the servers.

    Nate Silver reports first major post-convention poll.

    Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has opened a significant lead over Republican nominee Donald Trump, now leading him by 15 points, according to a new online nationwide survey conducted on Friday, July 29th by RABA Research, a bipartisan polling firm.

    • DaddyRay

      And a reminder that Trump only got a 2 point bump after his convention

    • Bruno

      Love the poll number, don’t know the firm. Hoping all the major polling outlets show a similar huge bounce.

      • joe ho

        538 gives RABA a B- rating.

        • Bruno

          Could be worse. I read a response from him on the tweet that said the only thing he saw of theirs before were Missouri primary polls, which they did fine on. I’m expecting her lead is not +15 but more like +10. We’ll see.

      • SoCalGal20

        They’re new, according to Nate. So we’ll see.

    • Steve Teeter

    Can you imagine any of Trump’s staff having any access to any briefings Trump would get as President?

    • DaddyRay

      I am concerned about the access to briefings before he has the chance to be President. You know he will use his access during his speeches.

      They need to feed him some false flags to test him.

      • Bj Lincoln

        Yes! Don’t give him anything he can run with. Feed him BS and fake stuff to test him.

        • Ceann Eltigh

          Exactly. Like the code breakers did before the Battle of Midway in 1942. A fake un-encoded message was sent out about a fresh water shortage on the island. When that information was used in another intercepted message it confirmed where the attack would happen.

      • DaddyRay

        Here is how I envision it going. Trump is giving a campaign stump speech and say something like
        “Iran has developed teleport capability, I am not saying they will appear in your mini-van while you are dropping your kids off at school but who knows. Trust me I see this stuff that Obama won’t share with the American people”

      • SoCalGal20

        It sounds like the briefings they get aren’t that consequential. They’re not the presidential daily briefings. It sounds like they’re sort of, “This is what’s going, these are the people to note, this is what we’re doing” (in a general sense), and so on. And lol, the article I saw they said they doubt Drumpf would even ask the questions that would get him into areas that were too confidential to answer. So we don’t have to worry about him having damaging, top secret info. OTOH I await him blabbing about what he was told during a stump speech or on twitter.

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        You’d think that blabbing national secrets on TV would work against him with the GOP voters but they seem capable of ignoring anything.

    Hillary doesn’t really need a briefing. She is already full of knowledge and secrets. Trump should be fed lies and BS to test him. If he lets even one piece of the fake info out, he should be dropped from the election like a hot rock. But then, he should have been dropped along time ago.

    • Stubenville

      Agreed; she deserves an Emmy for not laughing out loud.

    • Paige Turner

      My thoughts too. He needs the placebo briefings not the real ones. Madam President can have those.

    • Friday

      Well, actually the idea is that the final candidates get a general overview of what’s going on in the world according to intel and the like, a) so there’s continuity when whoever takes office: the President-elect gets even more with the transition, and b) It helps keep the campaigners from so much speculation or guessing/making uninformed statements on the campaign trail.

      In the latter case, of course, Trump is likely to just consider it more license to make stuff up, run his mouth and spew whatever he’s been told when he has the impulse. Then probably claim the NSA told him these things.

    I glanced at Pierson’s background and it notes how she’s been a Tea Party activist. Why aren’t the Democrats dinging tRump with this label more? America hates the Tea Party, polls show. They’re the most divisive group in the country. It’s quite obvious he’s a Tea Party candidate that ran in the Republican primary.

    • lymis

      Why associate Trump with the Tea Party – inviting the inevitable “Oh, no he’s not, and here’s why” – when all you have to do is associate Trump with Trump.

      • Bruno

        Maybe we should just let him have all-day press conferences where he blathers at length and just let him pile up the gaffes.

        • Claude Jacques Bonhomme

          They’ve also avoided blaming the Republican Party during the convention, even though Trump is the big tumor that metastasized from the GOP cancer lingering for so many years.

          Obama – and others – said that progressives should vote Dem up and down ticket, but Hillary avoided the topic, in order to get the disillusioned Republicans’ votes. Probably a smart move.

          • Bruno

            For the down ticket, it’s just important to get Dems and progressives out to vote. And they hit that out of the park with the masterful convention. Even if a few more people watched tRump’s trainwreck than Hillary’s presidentiality.

          • Claude Jacques Bonhomme

            Am I right to think those ratings only count TV audiences, not online audiences. That would skew things toward Trump’s demographics.

    Apparently I’ve (we’ve) been witnessing an alternate universe Republican campaign for the past year. The one where the duplicate Trump makes all the headlines he can. Seems now the truth has finally come to us. The REAL Trump is a humble man who shies away from making noise and headlines whenever possible. This Rep campaign is a shitstorm of total nonsense and bullshit with nary a hint of embarrassment or shame as they smear the bullshit pie into the face of the American voters. It is overwhelmingly insulting to all of us who have repeatedly observed the exact opposite for the past year.
