Trump criticized for comments on Muslim mother of fallen US soldier
I worked with a great guy years back in the construction industry named John K. John was the nicest guy in the world; a very solid citizen, a patriot and hard-nosed son of a bitch (said with respect).
John K and I had a lot of things in common. Both Marines and too many other unflattering unmentionables to put in ink.
John was decorated Jar Head that served at the Chosen Reservoir (AKA The Frozen Chosen) battle in the Korea War, one of the bloodiest battles ever. He and a few other Marines made it out alive. That experience had a life long adverse effect on John.

John was on and off of the sauce many time during his struggles to drown out his horrific memories in the military.
On occasion when John was hitting the juice pretty good, I watched him try to climb the slope of a hill. He took 3 steps forward and 6 backward, yet he never stopped trying to climb the hill.
In his own stubborn, determined way, he refused help from anyone including his wife and kids. There wasn’t anything anyone could do for John, he had to do it for himself.
Happy to say, after years for trying to climb the hill he finally got a grip on himself and stayed sober the rest of his life. John K was one of most outstanding people I ever met. He was truly a man’s man!!!!
In some respects, The Trumpster is a lot like John. A times he misbehaves like a 10-year-old kid and then he tries clean it up. He takes 3 steps in the right direction and 6 backward. It is a compulsion with the guy and it is not doing him any good. Like my dear friend John; Trump has to learn how to put down the sauce (his compulsion to fly off the handle).
This is a big hang-up with Trump and Bill’s bride knows it. She will be prodding, twisting an digging anywhere and everywhere she can to get an adverse reaction form Trump when they debate. The worst thing he can do is loose his composure.
I still marvel at the fact; Trump knows what he is doing when he spouts off the way he does but he can not control his urges. The guy is shooting himself in his own foot. Especially with how close this election is going to be, he needs every 1/2 vote he can get. He would do a lot better if he exercised more self-control.
Either he doesn’t have anyone in his organization that has the goolunies to tell him to tone it down or if he does, he is not smart enough to listen to them.
Donald; if you are reading the GG; I told you awhile back, I am still available. My rates are reasonable. I have the tools to put you on the right path, believe me!!
His is probably right when he says Mr. Kahn’s wife is not ALLOWED to speak but it is not necessary to comment on every situation, especially if it is derogatory.
Trump, during an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” said: “She had nothing to say. She probably, maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say. You tell me.”
Wise up Donald; the clock is ticking. Sometime you are taking 3 steps forward up the political slope and 6 steps backward. Not a very good strategy.
