Donald Trump has a long history of offensive statements about veterans and military families. He doubled down at last night’s Commander-in-Chief Forum, where he showed he is temperamentally unfit to be president.

Katy Tur this morning reported that former Acting CIA Director Mike Morell underscored that the forum showed Trump has “no real idea of how intelligence works.”
