Wow, Donald, What a "Sacrifice"!

“I’ve given up a tremendous amount to run for president,” Trump told Blitzer. “I gave up two more seasons of Celebrity Apprentice.”
Kind of hard to equate that with having a limb blown off or being killed in combat, but he keeps trying:
In his first response to a searing charge at the Democratic National Convention from Khizr Khan, the father of a soldier killed in Iraq, that he "sacrificed nothing" for his country, Donald Trump claimed that he sacrificed by employing "thousands and thousands of people."
Yeah, getting rich is a real "sacrifice".

One thing that is becoming clearer and clearer about The Donald as this electoral season drags on: He has no sense of decency, only cruelty. There is not a spark of humanity in him, whatsoever.

Even people who have been GOP party operatives for three decades can's stand him, and anybody who worked for the Bush family had to have had a high tolerance for a lack of humanity in candidates.

I don't know how low Trump can go, but we have 99 days in which to find out. At some point, the desertion of Republicans from the Trump candidacy will look less like principled dissent and more like rats fleeing a sinking ship. And I suspect that the changeover point will be sooner rather than later.

Any politician worth their salt would have had no problem with the Kahn speech. All he had to do was to refer back to his stated opposition to the invasion of Iraq. Whether it's true or not, Trump has been claiming he was against the invasion from the start, and responding with that opposition would have defused much of the grief and anger that made the speech as powerful as it was by agreeing that Humayun Khan should never have been there to begin with. This is not rocket science, it's barely politics 101.

That graphic might fit your preconceptions, but I doubt it is true.

Hillary tells some really big ones

Hillary's Pants-On-Fire level is less than Obama's. Sanders is the only one without a POF.

Hillary is still only 24 percent a liar (counting POF, Mostly False, Half-False) compared to Trump's whopping 74 percent liar status. In terms of who's more honest, I trust Hillary more.
