Hillary Clinton asked how low political discourse could go. The question arose as a result of the Democratic National Committee’s exploitation of Mr. and Mrs. Khizr Khan, whose heroic son, Humayun Khan was killed fighting for his country in Iraq. The DNC took advantage of the family’s obvious grief for sole purpose of launching a vitriolic personal attack on Donald Trump. The DNC knew that if Trump tried to defend himself, he would be vilified by all forms of media and politicians of both parties who dislike him.

They were right.

In answer to Clinton’s question, sometimes the Democratic Party can sink just as low as they accuse the Republican Party of doing.

Hopefully, the dialogue on both sides will improve and the candidates will stick to the issues that need to be solved.
