Donald Trump and the Disabled

It's not what you think.

Donald Trump and the Disabled

And tonight on this lovely, eve of Friday we have another Trump video debunked. Now I’m going to put this out there for you very clearly. I’m going to remain as unbias as possible. All I want is to keep uncovering the truth and telling it. The way we can say it is just to say it. I don’t need to sell you the truth; you know the truth. I’m just putting it out there. With that being said, I’d like to introduce the truth to you.

If you remembered a while ago, Trump reportedly mocked a disabled reporter from The New York Times, Serge Kovaleski, at one of his rallies early in the election cycle. (From the Conservative Times, reference at the end of this article. More on him later. He made the mistake of Arabs celebrating the 9/11 attacks in 2001 and then tried to turn his journalism into something by overseeing Trump attacks.) The photo you have all no doubt seen is indeed falsely represented Trump’s hand motions. (Seriously, didn’t you take an ethics class, or did your journalism degree come from a cereal box?) freeze-framed the “offensive gesture” at literally the same time, put the photo….well, I’ll just insert it below.

Left to Right: Donald Trump and Serge Kovaleski. NEVER HAPPENED (Look, you can even tell it’s a plant if you have any background or knowledge of very basic photography).

Look here, everyone, the photo of Trump, he is mocking somebody, and he’s mocking Serge. But how Serge responded to tough questions. He’s done the same thing to Ted Cruz, again, who got flustered answering about waterboarding! Last time I checked, Cruz was good, no disability.

Here is the full video that you can watch on youtube . (No, I don’t consider this a “source” but this person is trustworthy, clearly spoken, and obviously educated, unlike some journalists I know).

Truth #1: Donald Trump did indeed move his hands in an awkward manner.

Truth #2: It was in reference, (and if you go here , you’ll see the context in which it was spoken, not just what I’m saying, or what the commentator says) to how Kovaleski responded to a question

Truth #3: A simple Google search will show that Serge Kovaleski suffers from a congenital joint condition! I knew someone at Regent with that same disorder, their hands are fixed in an odd position! Serge Kovaleski suffers from arthrogryposis, a condition which limits the movement of joints and is particularly noticeable in Kovaleski’s right arm and hand. Here is a liberal site for you to balance it all out.

Truth #4: This video is crap! News flash: SERGE KOVALESKI ISN’T AUTISTIC!

The beginning of this awful video shows a kid with autism, flapping his hands. And yes, it is common for Autistic children to flap hands and make odd gestures. I understand that. But this video!!! Oh, if you could feel the feelings I’m feeling right now…It’ll hit you…like a train!!

All right, I’m done for now. If you have any comments or questions, drop them down below. Thank’s everyone, and have a GREAT Monday !
