In the Age of Trump, Calling Soldiers Heros is Politically Correct

There is no level to which Trump supporters will not descend to protect their precious.

It is now being deemed politically correct to call American soldiers in combat “heros.” This is the Branch Trumpidian response to dealing with Captain Humayun Khan’s death.

One of the upsides of Campaign 2016 is that we are learning more and more that the high character of many was just a facade and their true selves are coming forward now.

By the way, you should know that Capt. Khan died because instead of order those under him to go inspect a vehicle, he held his men back and went to do it himself. The enemy exploded the vehicle, killing the Captain, whose first care was for the safety of the men serving under him.
