Trump mocks reporter's disability, then denies mocking reporter's disability, demands apology from mocked reporter's newspaper.

Courtesy of the Washington Post:  

A day after he was widely rebuked for mocking a reporter with a physical disability, business mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump on Thursday denied that he had done so and accused the reporter of “using his disability to grandstand.” 

Trump also demanded an apology from the New York Times, the reporter’s employer, which earlier in the week issued a statement condemning Trump for ridiculing “the appearance of one of our reporters.” 

The incident occurred Tuesday at a rally in South Carolina, as Trump was defending his recent claim that he had witnessed thousands of Muslims cheering in New Jersey on Sept. 11, 2001, as the World Trade Center towers collapsed. On stage, Trump berated Times investigative reporter Serge Kovaleski for his recent recollection of an article he wrote a few days after the attacks, which Trump has been citing to defend his claim. 

Trump appeared to mock Kovaleski’s physical condition; the reporter has arthrogryposis, which visibly limits flexibility in his arms.

Part of Trump's defense is that he does not even remember meeting this reporter, so how could he mock his appearance?

In his statement Thursday, Trump said:  

“I have no idea who this reporter, Serge Kovalski [sic] is, what he looks like or his level of intelligence. I don’t know if he is J.J. Watt or Muhammad Ali in his prime — or somebody of less athletic or physical ability. Despite having one of the all-time great memories I certainly do not remember him.” 

“Kovaleski must think a lot of himself if he thinks I remember him from decades ago — if I ever met him at all, which I doubt I did,” Trump said. “He should stop using his disability to grandstand and get back to reporting for a paper that is rapidly going down the tubes.”

So Trump claims to have one of the "all-time great memories" which apparently does not retain information that might make him look like an asshole.

How handy.

That must be helpful when Trump makes insults about a woman's face,   mocks a celebrities weight, or accuses a reporter of bleeding from "wherever."

    This is interesting. Reporter is saying that not only does The Donald know him--having covered him for many years--but that they're on a first name basis.

      One thing Trump will never do is admit he is wrong.

    2. Was there any doubt?

      Trump is a liar.

      So much for his fabulous best in the world great memory.

      Too bad there isn't a lot of tape to expose Trump's lie.

  2. I so want to see this happen whenever Dumb Donald opens his mouth hole

      Trump, to me, is so physically unattractive. Look at his mouth - it's round - small and weird in the way he mouths his words!

      His mouth looks like a butthole. What an asshole!

    Rahm Emanuel‘s use of the word “retarded” was completely inappropriate and he needs to be fired according to Sarah Palin.

    But Sarah's Boo Donald mocking handicaps and special needs and Rush Limbaugh use of the word retarded was just in fun. You know Yuk Yuk Hardy Har Har.

    1. Anonymous2:07 PM

      Do you remember Rush Limbaugh mocking Michael J. Fox's Parkinson's, and then implying he was faking it?

      These people are beyond disgusting. And yeah, I'll come out and say it, so are their supporters.

      Guess what a big difference is between them and me? I would never in a million years suggest that "they should be shot".

    2. how about "shot into outer space"?

  4. Anonymous12:43 PM

    Donald and Sarah are both victims. Anytime soon will Sarah post a Blood Libel video in Trump's defense?

    1. Anonymous1:28 PM

      May both of them rest in hell SOON! They are the worst examples of Americans, having stained our country horribly.

    Imagine if President Obama did what Trump did regarding making fun of the disabled, Sarah would have a stroke from getting excited about starting impeachment procedures against President Obama.

    Donald Trump is the epitome of the spoiled rich kid. He lacks class, has a huge ego and is a bore (in the good manners sense). Trump is proof of what money cannot buy. He is a disgusting pig of a man and he is damn lucky that money can buy some women, yes men, hanger on'ers and the loyality of some offspring. I no longer believe in hell or Karma, but I still believe that Donnie is about to find out that America isn't morally bankrupt enough to approve of his behavior.

    1. Anonymous2:14 PM

      Yes, can you imagine having an interesting or compassionate conversation with Donald Trump about anything, anything you've read, experienced, seen in a museum, heard in a concert hall, enjoyed out in nature, observed with people in general, hobbies, or God forbid, current events???

      Just kill me right now. Inherited money does insulate people from economic reality, but also (in my experience) from common joy.

    2. Anonymous3:40 PM

      Inherited money also means that you are rarely called out for bad behavior, your tasteless jokes garner laughs, your borish opinions are agreed with and attractive whorish women will pretend to find you attractive and interesting, even when you are vile and repulsive. The emporer is naked.

    Trump looks worse and worse every day! He's a nut case that lies like Hell! Everything is on video and he still continues to lie!

    He's got a short fuse and is the worst candidate out there for POTUS.

    Remember, the Republican party hasn't even nominated him as yet to be their candidate! This could all turn ass-over-tea-kettle for the jerk! And, I think it will!

    Trump will never get the black or brown vote due to the horrible things he's said about them. Plus, now he has alienated the handicapped folks - of which I am one!

    He's killing it for the Republicans and Hillary Clinton will be the next POTUS in 2016! I can hardly wait to cast my vote for her!

    What group is left for him to degrade? Hispanics..check;Syrians..check; women..check, handicapped..check; Muslims..check. Who have I forgotten? When is this man going to crash and burn..and he will. His followers are a minority voting bloc of racist, xenophobic, mysogynistic, low information knuckle draggers.

    1. Anonymous1:11 PM

      Considering his white-supremacist followers, I expect some thinly-veiled jabs at Jews.

    2. Anonymous1:28 PM

      He has crossed the line again and again and again.

      The MSM needs to stop covering him.

    3. Blacks, Poor, Old, Sick.

      Bald, Fat, there is no one Trump won't make the butt of his anger or jokes.

      I'm wondering what would happen if the current trophy wife were to be dissed in public. And why is it we don't see her campaigning for her husband? Not enough of a command of the English language?

    If Donald Trump used words like retard and is that guy special needs or DS then of course Sarah would say my boo was saying it to be funny.

    I'm still waiting for the day when the right wing supporters of this reprehensible waste of oxygen will admit that he's not 'politically incorrect'. He's offensive, demeaning, threatening, volatile and abusive.

    And that's NOT the type of person who belongs anywhere near the White House.

    1. Anonymous2:18 PM

      They won't ever. They'll just double down. Because the reality is, they're just like him.

      Except with less money, so they kiss his ass and imagine they'll be him some day. When they win the lottery, of course.

  13. The Times should send Trump a copy, tell him to roll it up and stick it up his arse.

    It would be better if they could take him to court and sue him but they have no standing and they really haven't given them grounds.

    Court would be fun. Trump could be humiliated for his "great memory" and "can't remember". The video could be replayed over and over making him look like the ass he is. It would be a wonderful venue to both expose and humiliate this terribly ugly human being.

    But unfortunately being mean spirited isn't illegal and you can't sue someone for being a foul mouthed blowhard.

    He's a fucking fascist moron. You American democrats better do everything you can to make sure he's not elected. Otherwise the U.S.A. is doomed.

  15. Anonymous3:19 PM

    People should go easy on the disabled fella, you know, cut him some slack. He was born filthy rich, knows very little about just a.bout anything, and enjoys getting attention any way he can.
    When his ancestors immigrated, they changed the vowel in his last name from and "A" to a "U" to be politically correct and not embarrass his mom, whom he loves truly, madly, deeply. Rumor has it she resembled Curley from the three stooges and was absolutely fetching.

  16. Anonymous3:31 PM

    It is no surprise to me that this bombastic moron is saying what he has and is mocking a good number of people. He has always been this way.

    What I find more telling is the number of republicans still supporting him. Given the degree and nature to which he has amped up his rhetoric in the recent past, anyone who still supports him has a lot of explaining to do to convince me that they are not bigoted, xenophobic, mysogonistic, insensitive wastes of space.

  17. Never underestimate the stupidity of the American people. They can see it, hear it, and still be duped into believing it didn't happen.

    This is the face of the GOP. Trump and the Republicans are interchangeable.

  19. Anonymous4:15 AM

    Sarah says people like Trump because he 'tells it like he sees it.' Keep saying that Sarah.

  20. And his poll numbers have dropped again.

    Why I don't understand is why they don't stay down. Are his supporters so brain dead they forget what he's said or done after a few days and start supporting him again?

    Are they so Xian they just keep forgiving him his racist and bigoted transgressions over and over because dot's whut Jeebus wood du?

    I've been referring to Donald Trump as "Trump the chump"; my husband calls him "Donald Rump." So now in our household he is "Rump the chump."


Don't feed the trolls!
