“I don’t know where the bottom is.” Republican also tore into the Republican presidential hopeful, with Sen. interviewLindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, saying in a statement, “There used to be some things that were sacred in American politics — that you don’t do — like criticizing the parents of a fallen soldier even if they criticize you.” “This is so incredibly disrespectful of a family that endured the ultimate sacrifice for our country,” Jeb Bush, a Trump rival in the 2016 GOP primary, said on Twitter Sunday evening. The Khans, whose son Army Capt. Humayun Khan was killed in Baghdad in 2004, took the stage Thursday night at the Democratic National Convention, where Khizr Khan rejected Trump’s proposal to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States as unconstitutional, pulling a copy of the Constitution from his breast pocket, questioning if Trump has ever read it, and saying that Trump has “sacrificed nothing and no one.” Trump responded by criticizing wife Ghazala Khan’s silence and suggesting she wasn’t allowed to speak. Republican congressional leaders also took issue with Trump, issuing statements Sunday that praised the Khan family and reaffirmed their opposition Trump’s proposed Muslim travel ban. House Speaker Ryan, R-Wisconsin, said in a statement, “Many Muslim Americans have served valiantly in our military, and made the ultimate sacrifice. Captain Khan was one such brave example. His sacrifice — and that of Khizr and Ghazala Khan — should always be honored. Period.” Khizr Khan told CNN’s Jim Acosta over the weekend that those GOP leaders have a “moral, ethical obligation to not worry about the votes but repudiate him; withdraw the support. If they do not, I will continue to speak.” On Sunday, Trump responded to the uproar.
