The media's Gold Star Family Fallacy

Time:
Why Gold Star Parents Are the New Third Rail in Politics
I am not defending Trump's fight with the Khans.  He should have honored their son's service a and said that if all Muslims were like their son, there would be no need to be concerned about terrorist slipping into the country with Muslim refugees.

The fallacy is the "third rail" analogy.  It was only a week before that Democrats were trashing the Gold Star parents of Benghazi, and the media joined right in and heaped more abuse on the people who say with some justification that Hillary Clinton lied to them.  Pat Smith whose son Sean died in the attack said she "was treated like dirt" after she complained about the lies.

The third rail fallacy is just another Democrat double standard.
