It’s almost as if the Trump Train is hurtling toward the cliff and its brakes are broken:

More from The Hill:
Donald Trump’s campaign sent out an email to surrogates this week titled “URGENT PIVOT” as the campaign seeks to control the damage from Trump’s war of words with the parents of a Muslim U.S. Army captain killed in Iraq.
“All — As usual, the media is working against our efforts and our messaging specifically as it relates to the tragic death of Capt. Humayun Khan,” Scott Mason, Trump’s director of congressional affairs, wrote.
“We are asking you to review and use the attached talking points in your daily messaging, including a release and/or statements you can put out in your social media immediately to support Mr. Trump and OUR message, that we must end radical Islamic terror so that soldiers like Capt. Khan, and all Americans, will be safe.”
Apparently Trump adviser Al Baldasaro didn’t get the memo:

"Mr. Khan, you disgraced your son, who died as a hero. You used him as a political pawn," Trump veterans adviser Al Baldasaro tells NH1.

Guess calling for Hillary Clinton to be executed by firing squad wasn’t enough.
@kylegriffin1 To be clear, that's the same Al Baldasaro who said Hillary Clinton should be killed by firing squad?

Nice guy, huh?
Al Baldasaro has a storied history of insulting and slandering others, but attacking the Khans is low even for him. #nhpolitics
