People argued with me yesterday that he wasn’t mocking him because of his disability and that he uses this mannerism for all sorts of people. As if that makes it okay. It’s exhausting to argue about something that should never be justified.
"But Trump wasn't mocking the reporter's disability, he was mocking his indecisiveness! He did it a bunch of times before!"
Why is a presidential candidate mocking ANYONE?
When someone SHOWS you who they are - believe them. How many times does Trump have to get caught in a lie before we believe that he's a liar? Trust what you see, not what someone says.
People say "He wasn't mocking the disabled reporter, he always does that (makes spastic motions to mock people)". Um, ok, and that is better how?
The orange tool denies everything he says or tweets. Is he so stupid that he thinks there's no electronic evidence left behind?
The right wing explanation is that the illness being mocked isn't the illness that the mocked person has... therefore Trump could not have possibly been mocking that person. Seriously. Like Trump would even know the difference, or care.
My dad voted for Trump and I can honestly say I have never felt so betrayed in all my life. That disabled man that Trump made fun of could easily have been me. By him voting for trump it was like he was telling me that I didn't matter to him. He adopted me. He promised to protect, care for and love me. Once he voted for Trump he broke that promise and I showed him the door. I am done. I have no room in life for that kind of negativity.
now imagine if Obama did this, the outrage would be unfathomable, but it wasn't and for some reason Trump gets a free pass, I don't understand it
It's funny that Trump supporters (and Trump himself) won't believe what is actually on tape to see with their own eyes but will believe a headline that someone sitting at home typed on their computer and posted on social media.
Trump excuse and a video compilation online is that he has made those hand gestures in interviews for years. So he didn't just mock a disabled reporter....his has been mocking the disabled and mentally challenged for years.
