The media will be awash with criticisms of Donald Trump’s attack on Ghazala Khan for not speaking at the Democratic convention on the basis that Muslim wives are allowed to speak. She has now spoken out and delivered a stinging and dignified rebuke to the Republican presidential nominee.
But it is interesting that Trump should criticise a Muslim wife for not being allowed to speak. His third wife, Melania, was allowed to speak at the Republican convention but only allowed to speak from a script prepared by his campaign staff.
Melanie Trump is more at ease with non-speaking roles
Pity she wasn’t smart enough to work out that some of that had been plagiarised from Michelle Obama.
From the other side of the world, who can only watch Trump with a mixture of fascination, horror and astonishment. But this incident seems to have set a new low tide mark.
