Did you laugh and cheer when Mr. trump made fun of the handicapped reporter?
Did you also cheer when President Obama was burned in effigy on a cross? Did you cheer for Mr. Huckabee when he agreed with those who said Chelsea Clinton should be run over by a Mac Truck driven by her mother?
I did not agree/cheer for any of this stuff including Kathy Griffin's stunt.
Did you laugh when many comedians mocked Donald Trump's ten year old son, like making fun of him for thinking his father had been beheaded by Ms. Griffin?
Compared to sasha and malia, who endured 8 years of racism directed at their dad, Trump being chief among them. If he was a decent person, you might have a point. Given that he dishes it out..to 2 girls watching their dad, id say sympathy not earned
When I was 6 years old a white woman spit on me,called me a ni&$er and pushed me in a sewage ditch because I was walking down the street with her son. That is how I grew up with white racists. I survived, and so will the rich white kid.
I neither saw nor heard of anyone mocking Barron Trump. No I would not have laughed.
Did you laugh at Sasha & Malia and the mock hanging of President Obama.
Fake News: Trump Did Not Mock Disabled Reporter And Other Lies From The Left

Tamara, here you go https://www.google.com/#q=donald+trump+ … 7156822930
I am sure you will enjoy this.
I don't believe he did make fun of the handicapped reporter... I think people who hate Trump wanna believe that so they are willing to latch onto it, because they like having another reason to paint him as despicable.
But I believe he didn't see the reporter for years and had no idea the reporter had a condition. I've seen Trump do the whole 'flustered' act mocking other, non-disabled people.
Plus the reporter doesn't actually do what Trump did... he actually barely moves because of his condition... so imitating him by moving around is like imitating Stephen Hawkings by dancing.
Keep in mind, I didn't vote for Trump, I think he has a lot of personality flaws, and I think he's letting those flaws get in the way of him doing his job; he's making a lot of mistakes. But I don't believe this was one of them.
I think accusing people of doing despicable things when they didn't is just as bad as the despicable thing you're accusing them of. Even if I don't like a person, if a person is innocent of something, I am not going to blame them for it. That would make me just as big a jerk if I did that.
I try to look at the situation objectively and determine if the accusation is actually true, or just a knee-jerk reaction and people jumping on a bandwagon... in this case, I believe a lot of people jumped on a bandwagon because they preferred the narrative that Trump will go that low. But I honestly do not believe he did in this case.
"Now the poor guy, you oughta see this guy — uh, I don't know what I said, uh, I don't remember. He's going like, I don't remember." Trump was referring to the more recent interview with Kovalevski. Trump most certainly did see him then, as well.
Mac, come on! The video of trump's mockery is on youtube for anyone to see and I posted a link of tamara below, take a look and see what you think.
have a day.
I've seen the videos, I've researched the story, I've written about it for some of my clients. I don't agree he knew the reporter was disabled and was imitating him (Kov. doesn't even move/talk like that). I just don't see it, I disagree with you two
Wiccan, the more recent interview with Kovaleski was all over the news. This is what Trump was referring to in his comments and gestures. He saw him.
WiccanSage ~ U Obviously have NEVER watched this Disturbing Film which depicts the BIGGEST Mentally Deranged National Disgrace in HISTORY Acting like a FOOL, BABBLING & MOCKING the Reporter https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX9reO3QnUA
One more comment: Trump even admitted that he mocked him, but "not his disability." The fact that he mocked this reporter in such a cruel and thoughtless way is just terrible. "You oughta see this guy," he said. It's in the video.
"I've seen Trump do the whole 'flustered' act mocking other, non-disabled people."
Can you provide a video that shows this? I'd be curious to see it. Thanks.
Mackenzie Sage, Very few people do their research before making a judgement. Thank you for doing so, despite your antipathy to Trump. Your assessment is factual.
MackSW, If Trump could not recognize the man was handicapped then he himself must have a defect. Your apology is breathtaking. You expect that Trump,who is not an impressionist, would give an accurate rendition of someones physical mannerisms. Not!
MackSW..Huh?! What's to research? U see people "jumping on a bandwagon?" HOW did U miss Trump was driving the bandwagon, while twirling a batan? Sorry Mack, U saw the wrong parade.
Wiccan...many others have researched this as well and disagree with you. I hesitated to point out this fact as I didn't want to insult anyone's intelligence.
Alternative, thank you for your link, I had not heard this before the one I saw was only where trump was mocking the reporter.
Blessings my friend.
Genna, thank God for you and your comments
Blessings always my friend.
One of the 1st Lessons I got from my parents was 2 NEVER "MOCK" Human Beings that R "DIFFERENT", a Basic Lesson Donald John NEVER Received as a CHILD ~ Does WiccanSage also APPROVE of Donald LYING 2 COAL-Miners about their OBSOLETE JOBs?
Aime: There are two, but they do not reflect Trump’s complete gestures re his mocking the reporter. Plus, he had seen him in recent TV interviews. We all did. And he stated, “You oughta see this guy…” Regardless -- it was terrible.
I just looked it up. That's interesting. I think it's grounds to claim he wasn't mocking him but I also don't 100% believe his intent. Either way perhaps it'll get him to stop doing that because it looks ridiculous in every context.
I agree, Aimee. The giveaway was his comment as he was mocking him: "You oughta see this guy..." I am convinced he did both -- mocked the reporter and a bit of the disability as well. He slipped in that he wasn't thinking, but he often doesn't.
If you had limited mobility because of a physical disability and someone waved his arms with a goofy look on his face, would you not PERCEIVE it was mocking your disability? Get real!
wiccan, there is a link above that shows Mr. trump mocking the reporter, it has been on TV so, so many times, suggest you open your eyes next time it is on or simply follow the link above.
It has been proven many times that Trump did not mock the disabled reporter. Here's proof from the UK Daily Mail. There are others.

You people who responded on this post need to know a quote by Joseph Goebbels. He was Hitler's minister of propaganda.
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."
"Hillary clinton is the most corrupt person ever to run for office"--el dumpo de trump.
I agree with that goebbels qoute. 30 years of that lie. And you bought it!!!!
LMC, why is it liberals struggle with comprehending facts? There is vast amounts of evidence of Hillary's corruption. She's not in jail now because of incompetence of Comey and Loretta Lynch refusing to prosecute Hillary no matter what.Facts not lies
AMERICA has moved on 2 PROSECUTING the most DANGEROUSLY Unsound Pseudo-President in HISTORY, Donald John ~ The WORLD is an "X-TREME Catastrophic Mess" under Putin's-Puppet who CONFESSED 2 Obstruction, Pledged his ALLEGIANCE 2 Russia etc
I saw him do it. All you have to do is watch the video. Sheesh.
Scott, there is an old saying "Not all you see is all there is" Read the article from the UK Daily mail I provided.
So his default is making motions that Imply "retardation" for anyone he mocks and this is ok with you lot. Also they point out his prior mocking was "less involved" which gives even more cause to think he's deliberately mocking this man.
Mike, I saw trump when he was making fun of the reporter.
I guess the Goebbels saying if true and you have come to believe the lies about Hillary and trump in your face you choose not to believe the facts when you see them.
SES, your reply shows why Trump is president. You can't deal with the facts and reality of Hillary. This past presidential elections would have been easily won by Democrats if you could've comprehended the reality of Hillary. YOU elected Trump.
Actually, it was won by hillary. And we will find out, that includes the ec vote too. Trumpland is corrupt beyond measure, and so is the gop. They cant get away w it forever. And those who die for lack of money will call out from the grave.Big Parade
RMN,the election was won by Hillary by millions more votes than trump who was put in office by the corrupt GOP's electoral college & should all be investigated for Russian collusion.
I love my Country & don't want to see it annexed/ruled by
Dhs:"we have evidence of 21 states whose election related systems were targeted by russian interference". Ive read that trump paid the fsb, and that jared and t-rumps tech manager worked w russia on anti hillary smears netwide. Tic toc said the clock
This is why Democrats keep losing. You don't understand why people voted for Trump You can't deal with reality. Keep that good imagination going. It will provide Republican control for a long time. You don't know what you're doing to yourselves.
They think they hate gvt,but really they only hate democrats.They think women and people of color are taking over their world. They lost the guarentees of the 1950's,and want them back. They dont want to admit theyve had it better than everyone. Over
A newspaper article claiming that Trump waves his arms when he mocks other people is not "proof" that he didn't knowingly mock the reporter's disability. The Goebbels quote, by the way, is Trump's inspiration and M.O. Ask his ghostwriter.
LMC, you're attitude is the reason Democrats will continue to lose elections. You couldn't be more wrong about Trump supporters. You need Trump supporters to win elections...you offer them nothing but insults. This only increases Trump's support.
Lol. Have you read the insults because i support hillary? I got nothing on them. And besides, it has nothing to do with policy. Trumpites will vote far right no matter if shecky the clown is the candidate...(oops). And their prez is insulter-in-chief
How do you explain (away) the video of him doing exactly that? I'll accept there are people who don't care what he does. I will not accept people who try to deny what he does.
Don jr retweeting a fan video showing trump shooting down a cnn plane. No outrage from the kathy griffin haterz!! Cnn has the goods on ole dumpy. Cant wait to hear it. Tic toc
From where I stand, your President would do better if he ceased these childish and undignified charicatures designed to belittle. He is President for the whole nation, not just for those who support him and should observe dignity and protocol.
No, he is not. Hes made it clear who hes president of, and it doesnt include democrats who "have no thought processes, are losers and clowns".Nor is he prez of those who dont believe in right wing extremists god. He is prez of 33% regular people &
That was what was done to Hillary for years and you believe it.
FYI: Trump did not know about the reporter's disability. Trump makes those silly gestures whenever he is attempting to describe anyone who says something ridiculous. No one ever said he was subtle. He doesn't do the Obama & Michelle show. Thank G
Everyone knows "Drumpf" does the "BOZO / Putin SHOW" ~ If you're Correct Yves, this is his "Natural Motion" when reacting 2 something ridiculous, another "STILL Frame" frozen with these same mannerisms should B easy 2 find right? GOOD Luck
"Here's proof from from the UK Daily Mail."
Anytime you're using Daily Mail as your primary source, it's going to be difficult for you to be taken seriously.
Did he or did he not make fun of the handicapped reporter?
If he did, I will not laugh at such inhumane gesture.
But, there is a doubt as to whether he indeed do it so I would rather end my comment.

10,000 veterans expected but only 4,000 showed up according to reports, what does that tell you?: I’m not sure why a treacherous, cowardly, yellow draft dodger like Mr. Trump who avoided serving our country would expect our brave military veterans, courageous men and women who he disrespects and...
