It's Raining Republicans

Oh y’all, this morning, even damn old Mitch McConnell figured out what was going on in the war between Donald Trump and goodness and mercy. The result was that we get to see how fast a turtle can run —

“Captain Khan was an American hero, and like all Americans I’m grateful for the sacrifices selfless young men like Captain Khan and their families have made for the war on terror,” McConnell said.

And John McCain got even, too.

Sen. John McCain accused Donald Trump of defaming Khizr Khan and argued the Republican presidential candidate does not represent the GOP.“While our Party has bestowed upon him the nomination, it is not accompanied by unfettered license to defame those who are the best among us,” McCain said in a statement Monday.

Trump? Well, he’s still saying —

“While I feel deeply for the loss of his son, Mr. Khan who has never met me, has no right to stand in front of millions of people and claim I have never read the Constitution, (which is false) and say many other inaccurate things,” Trump said.

Uh, did he say “no right”? Dude, that right there is prima facia evidence that indeed you have never read the Constitution.

Can you help us out?
