SuperPAC supporting Hillary Clinton goes after Donald Trump for mocking the disabled.

Courtesy of HuffPo: 

In the 60-second spot, titled “Grace,” Columbus, Ohio, parents fondly speak about their young daughter, who was born with spina bifida. They then recount their horror after seeing the presumptive GOP nominee mock New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, whose arthrogryposis impairs his arm movements. 

“The children at Grace’s school all know never to mock her. And so for an adult to mock someone with a disability is shocking,” the mother says in the ad. 

“When I saw Donald Trump mock someone with a disability, it showed me his soul, it showed me his heart. I didn’t like what I saw,” added the father.

Seems like a pretty powerful ad that simply uses Trump's own words against him.

I imagine there are literally dozens of ads that can be written using that same approach.

You know you would think that ads like this would convince Sarah Palin that she cannot continue to support Trump, after all she is supposed to be such a defender of folks with special needs or disabilities.

But then I remembered how she responded when that video of Trump first surfaced:

“Oh yeah, I I saw the footage, I think it was just yesterday, or two days ago,” said Palin. “Yeah. And um, again, if that was mocking an individual, if that’s accurate, then, no, you don’t — I — it’s terrible, its terrible.”

Yeah, but certainly not terrible enough to keep her from shaking her water filled pom poms on his behalf.

    I am trying really hard to not start crying in front of a bunch of strangers. This entire primary is a joke. I would say that nearly half of everybody who has come into my precinct was either not on the roster or they had their party changed or it says that they were supposed to receive vote by mail ballots and they never received them. Having to hand someone a provisional ballot when they clearly did everything right is heartbreaking. I sincerely hope that it's not this bad throughout the entire state.

    Yes. Donate the truck to the Donald J Trump victim, the "disabled woman" and Double down. Buy a new home for her too. Abused, disabled, mocked by a tiny mental narcissist. THE FACE OF REPUBLICANS, THE VOICE OF REPUBLICANS. don j trump

      Did somebody say "disabled"?
      Palin's fb has several pictures of her and Trig at a baseball game in AZ. Best line of the post...nothing better than baseball, apple pie and motherhood.
      Stop laughing!

    There are dozens of devastating ads that can be easily prepared to oppose Trump based on the fact he acts like a racist, immoral, nasty, bigoted, homophobic 12 year old spoiled brat.

    How about this one, where he calls Bill and HIllary "terrific people"?

    Hear that? You have 5 weeks to dump trump.

    1. And have a cypher replace polarizing Trump? -- NO. The GOP en masse will certainly vote for a non-Trump then. No, better to take a chance on Trump who is imploding -- what will he look like to Independents by November? They vote for change, but Trump?

    Training trump to dump America? really? The rumpfluenza and bigoted spoiled hateful face of the republican party should remove himself from the ballot. Hey your morals, manners and respect are showing.

    Looks like America is not ready to be a socialist country.
    Thank God

      Do you enjoy your Social Security check each month? That's Socialism, dumbass!

    2. Anonymous5:11 AM

      And Social Security came to us with a Democratic president and a Democratic Congress. It is a precious part of our way of life and we should treasure it and not let the GOP take it away.

    3. Yes, and here is the mind exposed of the Trump supporters and too many GOP in general...and they WILL vote, and cheat and gerrymander & voter suppress. They must not prevail. Bernie supporters: hold your nose if you have to but please vote Hillary; anything else is a vote for the right wing.

      Thank you, Barbara, for putting country first. Much appreciate!

    Look at the faces that stand with trump on stage. His daughters face is telling. She knows her dad well. Don cannot change himself. Just think IF this person is elected and when impeachment begins? how will he behave?

    1. Perhaps there will be a military coup? It happens in other non-Democratic countries, which America is fast becoming, if not already there.

    I do not like Morning Joe, but his epic rant this morning, is well worth the watch (3:27 min).

    "it says a lot about what kind of person he is — unethical at best, criminal at worst."

    "Trump is a snake-oil peddling charlatan for the 21st century; the lovechild of P.T. Barnum and George Wallace.

    theme of Trump’s presidential campaign has been his hostile, anti-intellectual attitude — he is almost disdainful towards facts and expert opinion"

    Use HRC as a Gun against Mo Joe's Head?
    Fuck all those bloviators on dRumps "orgy BED"...

    Ethically I am against superPACs.

    However, I hope that any/all Hillary minded superPACs expose the orange bloviating dRUMPf for what he is - over and over and over again. His election would be the end of America.

    I love the link about what Sarah said about "mocking disabled people". As if it makes a difference, she who played the flute in a beauty pageant she lost, has to know "the context" because loverboy Don the Dipshit said and did it. She needs to know "the context" because what difference does it make. And the interview ends with "Sarah Palin has a son with Down Syndrome". I need to know the context before calling her an idiot, anyone have any examples?

    This campaign appears to be more about men behaving unethical and the women that they have abused and got away with it. Look at all the men that surround trump. All accused of assault, rape and corruption. Look at the paid republican women, All accepting and cheering the men whom abuse women. The campaign of nasty little men who abuse women and scream "Its a mans world"
