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.
Wow, so so sad that this person who is going to be our president thinks he can just deny something he did publicly in front of the world. How can anyone think this guy is a good person? It blows my mind.
I'm not sure which is worse - the people who openly embrace or dismiss the racism, misogyny, dishonesty, childishness and general lack of humanity of the person they voted for, or the ones who deny that he said the things he said or did the things he did when there is proof. At least have the stones to own your choice.
If you haven't see Trevor Noah's documentary on Netflix yet, watch it. It's fantastic and very inspiring... So glad I watched it. What an amazing guy he is...
His followers don't care. The man could kill someone on video and they would STILL support him because for some reason they think he is the second coming.
He's like a 2 year old. He lies constantly & denies what he did even if it's in writing or on tape. I do believe he needs a mental evaluation & I hope the media & everyone else keeps calling him out on this stuff. He needs to grow up & learn to do the job he ran to do.
That's why he "loves the poorly educated" (Trump's words not mine). He knows he can say & do anything and they won't doubt him cuz they don't know any better; bless their hearts.
The thing is that she never named him in her speech. So for him to make such a complaint against her is admitting he's guilty of the act.
The thing that bothers me is that, it is absolutely clear he is mocking a disabled person. Period, end of story. Yet people who claim to be "God fearing people" defend this because they are so filled with malice towards anyone who would criticize this jackass, it blinds them.
I'd like to say it's unbelievable that Trump supporters would believe Trump about this, but... they do. They eat whatever shit Trump gives em. I've never seen Trump say "You should see this guy.." then make those kind of gestures when talking about anyone else.
He can say anything becausse his supporters will beleive anything. he says
But Kellyanne says he didn't do it, why won't you believe him??? Let's see, believe the continued lies he tells or believe what my eyes saw? I know it's a close contest, especially to the Trump supporters, but I think I think the "eyes" have it!
If you went to elementary/middle school anywhere in America (probably anywhere in the world) you know holding your arm and flapping it in such a manner is suggesting that someone has a particular disability. It is similar to calling someone the R-word regardless of whether or not they have an intellectual disability. To deny that this is a mocking gesture of a disabled person is pure shit. It is disgusting that people seriously think it's ok for the PEOTUS to make such a mocking gesture towards ANYONE, especially a disabled person.
He probably thinks we're all dumb and he is the only smart one! And that just proves he has mental issues! Yes, there are some dumb people, the ones that believed in his lies and voted for him...but I hope they're getting smarter now they're seeing the real Donald!
He is just a step away from calling people "retarded" but since he does it all the time, it is ok?!? He'd be fired as a teacher's aide or a customer service rep for mocking people that way, but was elected as president? SMH We live in an odd time.
But, but but, he has always used that silly gesture. But but but, Serge said, but but but he was impersonating, not mocking...
I love the way people defend this man. The way they try to redefine mocking to fit their needs. I have had so many people share so many videos with me trying to convince me this isn't mocking. Yet, I've seen it all and I've decided that YES IT IS!
The Trumpsters try their best to say "Well he made fun of Ted Cruz and nobody said anything". Yeah, because Ted Cruz doesn't have a disability! There's no justification to mock someone who has a disability's reaction!
donald trump is an absolute moron i cant believe we are stuck with this moron for the next 4 years.. our only hope is maybe he will do something that gets his dumb ass impeached. in the words of my grandma we all better get right with god because shit is about hit the fan the moment this moron is our president.
He said "you have to see this guy" and then displayed an imitation of his disability. It looks nothing like the other instances where he did a similar motion. Trump is an absolute clown, and if you still can't see that you really need to do some deep soul searching.
Donald trump makes the gesture for all people when hes mocking them. Just like Trevor noah ignores basic facts if they dont conform to his biases... and we have video evidence of that too Mr. Noah.
And hillary's emails were put out there & she still denies it 😂 I guess we'll never know the truth. Seriously it's both sides so both need to stop pretending like they're so high & mighty
