    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.

    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.

      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

      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.

      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.

      Genna Eastposted 16 months agoin reply to this

      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.

    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.

      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.
