The Republican Governor of the State Trump Can't Afford to Lose

John Kasich has a slightly different reaction to the story of Khir Khan than Donald Trump does

"Republican governor of a state Trump cannot afford to lose >

"There's only one way to talk about Gold Star parents: with honor and respect. Capt. Khan is a hero. Together, we should pray for his family."

But just when you thought Trump couldn't sink any lower:

"Donald Trump responded to the moving speeches of the father of an American hero at the Democratic National Convention by questioning why his wife stood at his side but did not speak."

"The remarks were clearly intended to question whether the couple’s Islamic faith precluded her from speaking so publicly."

For the record, Ghazala has no problem with speaking in public as she did on Friday night on Lawrence O'Donnell.

Khir Khan further revealed that his wife was the one who convinced him to speak publicly and that he only felt comfortable doing this publicly with her standing next to her.

Donald Trump is the last person to talk about how you treat your wife. We know his modus operandi: throw your wife overboard after a few years for a younger model. He has more than once been accused of rape.

His jokes about wanting to date his daughter don't seem like jokes when you see the way he touches her.

And then look at how he treats Melania. It seems that he blames her for the plagiarism of Michelle Obama's speech on night one.

The final explanation of the campaign was that she herself wanted to use Michelle's speech.

Trump even said 'The media has been so nice to Melania, no one has blamed her.'

But then he went on to suggest that it should blame her. And he has the gall to knock how Mr, Khan treats his own wife?

It's like Trump projects unto Muslims his own vile sexism.

Speaking of sexism, Mitt Romney engages in some of his own. He's gotten credit for being #NeverTrump. But let's not give him too much credit.

"To be honest, it’s very possible in my view that Trump wins,” Romney said. “I wouldn’t think it’d be by a landslide, but I think he could win. I think he could lose, I think he could lose by a landslide. But, I don’t know which it’s going to be and a lot of that depends on what happens to Hillary Clinton. Is there a meltdown moment, or some implosion of some kind?”

"The former GOP nominee went on to say that he finds Clinton inauthentic, and that she is attempting act like her husband, former President Bill Clinton, in order to gain votes, calling her an "awful candidate."

“You can’t forget that Hillary Clinton is a player as well, and she’s an awful candidate. People don’t trust her, they don’t like in my view she comes across as not being at all authentic," Romney said.

“There are serious women leaders who don’t go into an audience and put their arms up in the air and make a big guffaw kind of smile," he said. "It’s almost like she’s acting like she’s Bill Clinton and she’s not Bill Clinton. Nonetheless, it doesn’t come across well.”

Romney said he will still not vote for Trump or Clinton and would write in another Republican's name if he doesn't like the choices of third-party candidate."

You can't help but notice that by Romney 'inauthentic' seems to mean 'unwomanly.'

Like Trump he is also calling the kettle black. As you don't get more inauthentic than him. An awful candidate as opposed to himself in 2012?

In fact everything about Romney is inauthentic. He ran against his own healthcare plan in 2012. He's been castigating Trump for not releasing his taxes-and rightfully so.

Still, we can't help but remember that he was very slow to release his own-he finally released a couple of years.

And Romney made very nice with Trump in 2012. So let's just remember how Donald Trump took over the party. The utter failure and yes, inauthenticity, of the Establishment GOPers.

Trump simply took what Romney and friends was doing to that next logical step.

If Romney truly saw Trump as an existential threat he wouldn't say that about Hillary-even if he really did believe it. He'd do like Jennifer Rubin does.
