By now you may have heard about Donald Trump's bloviating, hissy-fit reaction to speech given at the DNC by the parents of a slain Muslim soldier. Rather than simply "agree to disagree" while thanking them for their sacrifice, Trump dug in in just about the worst way possible, and once again exposed himself for the petulant bully that he is. Says Vox's Ezra Klein:
Trump’s slander of Ghazala Khan was cruel. It was factually untrue. But it was also deeply, profoundly counterproductive — a man so angry about being cut off in traffic that he crashes his own car in revenge.
On point. Much more here, where Klein recaps the whole imbroglio, and reveals what it says about the GOP's nominee.
