Cindy Brady sides with The Donald in Trump’s feud with parents of Muslim soldier killed by suicide bomber

Watched The Week on ABC this morning and saw Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump take on the parents of a Muslim American soldier killed by a suicide bomber in Iraq.

Khizr and Ghazala Khan appeared last week during the Democratic National Convention and Mrs. Kahn let her husband do the talking.

Talk he did as he asked if Trump had ever read the constitution and asked what it was that he had ever sacrificed for his country.

Trump did not take the high road in his reaction and this morning even commented – twice – on how Mrs. Kahn did not speak.

She explained that she did not speak because she did not feel she could remain composed while talking about her son.

“All the world, all America, felt my pain. I am a Gold Star mother. Whoever saw me felt me in their heart,” Ms. Khan wrote in the Washington Post. “Donald Trump has children whom he loves. Does he really need to wonder why I did not speak?”

I’ve been reading all kinds of reaction on social media condemning Trump including this from Dick Cavett on Facebook: ‘Just awoke to read about Donald Trump’s slander of Mrs. Kahn. Honestly, is there no bottom to the man’s depravity?

But Trump has his defenders including Susan Olsen who played Cindy Brady on The Brady Bunch, The Brady Kids, The Brady Bunch Variety Hour, The Brady Brides and The Bradys.

I have not written about Susan since she ‘accidentally’ unfriended me on Facebook a few years back but thought I’d share what she posted about this situation on Facebook (see top photo).

I’m sure many will consider this worse than when she believed she’d be the next Shirley Temple!

    What does the Koran have to do with the Constitution? Church and state are separate. By her metric, we should ban Christianity too, as the bible condones slavery, murdering disrespectful children, and says women are subordinate to men, among other horrible things.

  2. Well, didn’t she turn out to be a bigoted hateful little “person”.

  3. This election is bringing out the worst in people, I swear. My head is about to explode from all the rhetoric and the never-ending insults.

  4. Sounds like little bigoted Cindy needs a talk from big Mike about decent ways to treat other people.

    Maybe I’m in a minority here but I like hearing things like this because it’s one less person I can write off as nothing more than nostalgia for a moment they did something that had some random relevance in my life at one point. We tend to elevate people based on those memories rather than their realities as living breathing people. Sadly, in this case she appeared to miss the message of the very show that made her famous.

  5. Evidently, she did learn from anything from Eve Plumb (Jan), who appeared at the DNC. Eve was part of the chorus singing WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW. #SusanOlson was singing Darlene McBride. #ChachaBaio, the mumbling #AntonioSabato chick. Now, this one. Thank goodness us normal people have celebs like #CaroleKing, #KareemAbdulJabaar, and #John Wesley Shipp.

  6. Those who know her well know that Susan has been spouting this virulent Islamophobia for many, many years. At least as long as Obama has been in office, and probably well before. The problem is, like all Islamophobes like her, she has no specific policy recommendation beyond “Ban Islam.” Ask her to explain what that means in action and how it doesn’t violate the First Amendment, not to mention numerous other American laws that she cherishes for herself, and she doesn’t have an answer. She’ll just scream at you that you’re being naive.

    It’s funny how a person opens their mouth and quickly becomes ugly. What a turn-off! I must admit I’m disappointed.
