Pence to Crowd Booing Military Mom: ‘Captain Khan Is an American Hero’

‘Captain Khan is an American hero and we honor him and honor his family as we do all gold star families’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
UNKNOWN FEMALE: "My question for you, Mr. Pence, time and time against, trump disrespected our armed forces and veterans. His disrespect for Mr. Khan and his family is an example of that. Will there ever be a point in time when you are able to look Trump in the eye and tell him enough is enough?"
PENCE: "It's okay."
UNKNOWN FEMALE: "You have a son in the military. How do you tolerate his disrespect?"
PENCE: "Well, I thank you for the question. Let me say first I want to honor your son's service to the country and family's service to the country. I truly do. Let me say I know this has been much in the news of late and in the last few days. As I said last night as Donald Trump said I think Saturday night, captain Khan is an American hero and we honor him and honor his family as we do all gold star families."
