The topic is certainly not very funny — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump strafing parents who lost their son, a captain in the U.S. Army, in a bomb attack in Iraq.
It was an appalling overreaction to Khzir and Ghazala Khan, who spoke against Trump at the Democratic National Convention last week, but at least it kept him in the news, right?

It’s an ugly time, folks, but it is somewhat heartening that Twitter — while too often a place of bile and insanity — is also a venue for letting off steam with some humor.
