While Defending Muslim Remarks, Trump Appears To Mock Journalist For His Disability

There’s bound to be some other explanation that el Trumpo is gonna come up with but it really does appear that he’s mocking a reporter’s disability in these comments where he’s defending what he said about “thousands and thousands” of Muslims dancing during 9/11 in New Jersey.

Here’s how Politico described it:

During a defense of his widely debunked claim that thousands of people in parts of New Jersey with large Arab populations celebrated the collapse of the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, Trump performed a derisive impression of New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski — who suffers from a chronic condition that has limited the movement of his arms — at a rally in South Carolina on Tuesday night.

Citing a 2001 article written by Kovaleski that referred to people allegedly seen celebrating the attacks, Trump said it was “Written by a nice reporter.”

Trump went on, “Now the poor guy — you ought to see the guy: ‘Uhh I don’t know what I said. I don’t remember.’ He’s going, ‘I don’t remember. Maybe that’s what I said.’” As he spoke, Trump launched into an impression which involved gyrating his arms wildly and imitating the unusual angle at which Kovaleski’s hand sometimes rests.

That’s pretty rough.

But if Trump fans have shown an incredible ability to defend absolutely anything Trump does or says….

Trump Probably Lied About His Personal Memory Of ‘Thousands And Thousands’ Of Muslims In Jersey Cheering After 9/11

    I think if they shot a reporter or two the BS would cease pretty quick.

  • Noboby cares about this reporter. We care about the fact that the Dems and the GOP are stealing the country by subverting the Constitution and rendering it irrelevant and forgotten. They’re stealing from our children and grandchildren with unsustainable debt. They’re killing lower income wages with an infinite unskilled and semi-skilled labor supply. Unelected bureaucrats are forcing regulatory law upon citizens who have no real legal recourse. They’re nullifying local, state, and federal laws.
    They’re putting our national security at risk with their games in the Middle East. They’ve stolen the health care industry and have almost destroyed the health insurance industry. They’re trying to steal the energy industry and are currently demonizing the food industry as they prepare to nationalize it. They’re nationalizing the housing industry, and the local police forces. I could go on and on.
    While media insiders may be shocked, SHOCKED that Trump would jab some reporter who is disabled, us dirty unwashed masses couldn’t give a shit.

    Everybody’s outraged that Trump made fun of a reporter??? Where was the outrage at Obama when a reporter got his head sawed off by ISIS in a video that the whole world saw??? The outrage seems to be very uneven depending on the targets political leanings. HYPOCRITES!!!

    Why should there have been outrage at Obama b/c of the beheading of a reporter by ISIL? Did Obama mock the reporter? Did he make light of the beheading?

  • Pat

    You just made my point. You’re outraged at Trump for making fun of someone but you have no outrage whatsoever for the president who is obligated (and has the power) to protect American citizens lives. In your mind, mocking is far worse than incompetence that gets someone killed. Your maiden name wouldn’t be “Fonda” would it???

    Considering how many people the Lefty media has driven from public life for having or expressing opposing views, not to mention the vile treatment of said people’s spouses, kids, extended families, pets, friends, family background, handicaps, etc., etc., etc., you’ll forgive me if I am unable to get too wound up about this.
