Tweets Hilariously Turns the Tables on Donald Trump

There's nothing quite like using Donald Trump's own words against him.

You could practically hear the eyes roll when Donald Trump decided to attack Ghazala Khan, mother of Captain Humayun Khan, who was killed by truck bomb near a coalition base in Iraq in 2004.

Trump implied that Ghazala Khan, who stood silently next to her husband Khizr Khan during his DNC speech, was prohibited from speaking due to her religion:

"If you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say. She probably — maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say. You tell me."

And Twitter couldn't resist.

Twitter users quickly re-contextualized the quote, and made Trump the subject of the speculation:

The message is clear: Trump's statement about Ghazala Khan is ridiculous because, as Trump proves in these images, there will be moments in which one person is delivering a speech while the other is there for support, and although they're not speaking, it doesn't mean they're silent out of fear.

Melania Trump, Mike Pence, and Chris Christie aren't afraid of Donald Trump. They're "just standing/sitting there" because that's what you do when someone else is talking and you're showing solidarity.

Trump was being devious when he suggested Ghazala Khan "wasn't allowed" to speak. Furthermore, his implications are what fuel the fires of hatred, anger, and fear, but I don't think voters are going to fall for it.

You tell me.
