The New York Times today reports that Donald Trump’s continuing feud with Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the parents of an Army captain killed in Iraq, represents ‘the gravest crisis in his campaign.’
Genius reporters at The New York Times have nominated the feud with Khan as ‘the gravest crisis in his campaign’ despite their previous nominations turning out to be not very grave.
The New York Times writes:
Republicans now say Mr. Trump’s obstinacy in addressing perhaps the gravest crisis of his campaign may trigger drastic defections within the party, and Republican lawmakers and strategists have begun to entertain abandoning him en masse.
It is unclear why the feud with Khan should prove particularly grave when previous ‘gravest crisises’ have disappeared harmlessly.
Other ‘gravest crisises in his campaign’ have included disputes over the nationality of a Mexican judge, several attempted anti-Trump campaigns, an argument with an Hispanic reporter, the removal of the Washington Post from press conferences, a denouncement from the Pope, more denouncements, an attempt by Bill Kristal to replace Trump with some guy no-one knows, a failure to support Trump by Ted Cruz, an alleged assault on a Breitbart reporter, a vegan assassination attempt, about a million accusations of racism, and an attack on Trump tower by the fire-breathing mega-beast Godzilla.
Non of which had any effect on the support for Trump.
Future ‘gravest crisises in his campaign’ are expected to derail the Trump campaign by being barely noticeable.
