Khizr Khan Lied About Travel Ban

Khizr Khan didn't tell the truth. But isn't he supposed to be beyond reproach?

From the Daily Wire:
Gold Star father Khizr Khan finally admitted that the United States never banned him from traveling.

Earlier in March, headlines were ablaze with the news that Khan's planned speech at a lunch in Canada was canceled. The organization hosting him Ramsay Talks wrote on Facebook that Khan's "travel privileges were being reviewed."

Khan himself said in a statement, "This turn of events is not just of deep concern to me but to all my fellow Americans who cherish our freedom to travel abroad. I have not been given any reason as to why. I am grateful for your support and look forward to visiting Toronto in the near future."

The story never made any sense from the get-go. As the Daily Wire pointed out, no American citizen can be barred from traveling to another country if they haven't been charged with a crime. Furthermore, a visa is not required to enter Canada, so the implied notion that President Donald Trump's immigration and refugee pause was somehow involved couldn't have been true.

...But now Khan has admitted his canceled lunch was not the result of the U.S. stopping him from traveling.

In an email to a local PBS reporter, Khan wrote, "I did not want to go through the hassle of uncertain rules and capricious implementation."

Additionally, Khan was wary of "Muslim profiling." He won't travel again until he's certain that he won't have to face any sort of Muslim profiling at the border.
He made it all up and did nothing to stop the Leftist media from promoting his lies as news.

Fake news.

This reflects very poorly on Khan. And the Leftist media.
