…the world of twitter has erupted in scornful laughter, sending Obama back in time, to meet the following personalities—Harry Potter, Jesus Christ, the Ku Klux Clan, Titanic casualties and several more—to shoot them, offend them, betray them, and so on.

 

In an absurd series of accusations, in the run up to the United States Presidential elections, which are scheduled to be held on November 8, 2016, Donald Trump’s spokeswoman Katrina Pierson has blamed the policies of President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton (the Democratic nominee for the next US President) for the death of Army Capt. Humayun Khan. Who is Khan?

He was an officer in the US army who died in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom, in 2004. That happened when George W. Bush was the President, while Obama was state senator in Illinois.

In an interview with CNN, Pierson said, “It was under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton that changed the rules of engagement that probably cost his life.” She also said that Trump never voted for the Iraq war, although in 2002 Trump had already expressed support for the idea of invading Iraq, in an interview with the radio host, Howard Stern.

Consequently, the world of twitter has erupted in scornful laughter, sending Obama back in time to meet the following personalities—Harry Potter, Jesus Christ, the Ku Klux Klan, Titanic casualties and several more—to shoot them, offend them, betray them, and so on. Apparently, it was Obama, according to twitter, who brought on these people utter grief, grave unpopularity or death.

Meanwhile, Ghazala and Khizr Khan, the parents of Captain Humayun Khan, have unequivocally condemned Trump especially on the issue of his Islamophobia and proposed immigration policy vis a vis Muslims, at the Democratic Convention held last Thursday. Khan, who is a 66-year-old immigration lawyer from Charlottesville, Virginia, turned an elegy about his brave son into a “viral rebuke of Donald Trump.”
