So this is going to make for a really uncomfortable Thanksgiving.
Dakota Meyer, Medal of Honor recipient and new son-in-law of Sarah Palin, may have departed from the mindless group think that seems to have overtaken the Palin clan.
If @realDonaldTrump wants to be the Commander in Chief, he needs to act like one. And that cant start until he apologizes to the Khans.

Meyer, who is baby daddy #2 to Palin’s daughter, Bristol, married into the family several months ago. By that time, Palin had long since taken leave of her senses, as admission to the Trump train.
Republicans have criticized Trump for engaging in a war of words with Khizr and Ghazala Khan, parents of a soldier slain in Iraq, after the two took the stage during last week’s Democratic National Convention to disparage Trump’s proposed temporary ban on Muslims immigrating to the US.
President Barack Obama awarded Meyer the Medal of Honor for his bravery during a six-hour fight in Afghanistan.
In recent years Meyer has been somewhat active in Republican politics, in addition to being Palin’s son-in-law. Meyer endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz in the Republican primaries this year — when the Texas senator was the main challenger to Trump. He also previously publicly considered a congressional run in Kentucky, but decided against it.
This all seems so out of step with the shrieking idiocy that has become the Palin legacy, doesn’t it? Something so sane and rational.
I wish Meyer well in his new marriage and his new life as a father.
I don’t envy him those family gatherings with the in-laws.
