Yep. I wouldn't be surprised if either or both sides approached the Goldmans to see if they'd weigh in on who was more likely to finally bring OJ to justice.

I didn't watch or read the speech.  What did the Constitution have to do with anything?

I'm not sure why exactly but apparently he felt Trump was in need of a copy and offered to give Trump his.

I just think it's funny when a partisan from either side appeals to the document.

Loosely paraphrasing, but basically Khan was saying, "Trump apparently doesn't know much about the Constitution (reference to his immigration stance and race-baiting I think); I have an extra copy he can borrow."

He asked if Trump had ever read the Constitution, about the religious test on immigrants. It was a pretty silly convention thing, because the Constitution doesn't apply to people outside the country. We can exclude whoever we want. Whether that's a good idea or not, or in tune with "American values," is the real question.



Then Trump responds by saying that Kahn "doesn't have the right to criticize him", which is hilarious in context with the whole Constitution thing.

The narrow legal question is actually a little more complicated than that, depending (among other things) on the point in the immigration process somebody is at which Constitutional provisions are at issue.

Well, Trump does want to make it unconstitutional to criticize him.

Well, we know Dennis Kuccinich was the best Congressman because he kept a copy of the Constitution on him at all times (along with used tea bags).

I think we're all lawyers here, so we don't need to be told what the legal issues are.  Defining the legal question is a trivial exercise left to the reader.  (I swear it is the last time I make that reference).

Good memory. I was indeed thinking of that scene, but remembered only the general concept and not which show/movie it was from.

Yeah, Sheehan is kind of a bad example. My point was grieving parents using their loss politically will always be attacked by the military community publically. or amongst themselves privately.

 Things have probably changed considerably with the volunteer military but there was once quite a gap between the military community and veterans

It's now officially a thing.

It's like people holding up crosses to ward off vampires or something. (These are protesters at or outside a Trump rally, reportedly.)




What's the over/under on the percentage of people waving their little booklets around who have actually read it?
