Light bulbs start to go off about the death of a Muslim soldier whose parents were pawns at the DNC

The impassioned Thursday night convention speech of Khizr Khan, the father of Humayun Khan who was a Muslim U.S. Army captain killed by a suicide bomber in Iraq, has managed to stir up loud and sometimes bitter debate.

Khan denounced Donald Trump’s proposed temporary ban on Muslim immigration, stating that his family had assimilated into the United States and his son even paid the ultimate sacrifice, saving other soldiers’ lives at the cost of his own.

Even Fox News host Megyn was caught up by the emotion of the speech, resulting in a heated exchange with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee when she tried unsuccessfully to dissuade his approval of Trump’s position on the temporary ban of Muslim immigration.

Finally one person made this observation steeped in irony.
