Yes. That is another HUGE weakness. Only a LOSER doesn't have the strength to admit to being wrong.

Think about History. Those who cannot be diplomatic tend to Dictate. Is that what people want?

Sheesh!

There are so many people so angry they don't care anymore I guess. Join the Bully's team, yeah, make all Those People who make us mad be back at the bottom of the pyramid where they belong!!! Woo Hoo!!!!
/End sarcasm

My dear friend has arthrogryposis and she is 100 percent paralyzed from neck down. Her hands fold inward opposite of how hands are to go, limbs are like toothpicks. Zero muscle. Has to be dressed, bathed, fed, taken everywhere. But she does not feel sorry for herself. She has traveled the world, does her own makeup *someone holds the brushes but she moves her head to put on the eyeshadow, blush, eyeliner - and it's way better done than I can even do* , creates almost realistic art work of people, is a many times published author, types faster on computer than I do, all this is done with her mouth. She does more and has done more than most folk who have use of all their limbs. She wasn't to make it past 10. She is now in her early 30's and doing amazing. She is my inspiration

On that note: Trump revolts me. it blows my mind how horrific he gets, wrose and worse, and people still like him???????? I'd fear a country under his rule. We would be back to days where no one had rights but rich caucasian males. everyone else would be 4th class citizens. If even allowed to have the word 'citizen's attached to them.

It's okay though when Trump hating reporters ask questions they shouldn't be asking....


Is the man running for Prez or county counsel on poultry cleanliness? I wouldn't even trust him on that but I would think a tough question would be in the offing. Can't answer it, "WHINE!!!!!!!" Like I said earlier, give me 5 minutes. I'll make him cry.


After thinking about it a bit, I have to agree that mocking a disabled person is very over the top where professionalism and decency should always be observed. Trump or anyone else has no excuse for that. Maybe Obama and Hillary rubbed off on him some,, although that isn't an excuse either. The way Obama and team have gang raped the pursuit of liberty and happiness, and turned the American dream into a Chairman Mao wet dream might be a part of it, but even with all that, it is pretty dumb to be making fun of a left wing liberal Gimp reporter while on the campaign trail! It's a lose lose anyway, with the state run media moguls and how they do their Houdini show using a version of the free press that makes a jail cell look like a sunny vacation.


Edit: Or rather, what would make a sunny vacation look like the inside of a jail cell.

Love that you are able to blame Obama for the actions of Trump.
Obama Derangement Syndrome is strong there.

Ah, but you didn't read very good. Again.. I clearly left a legitimate escape there which says it is still not an excuse. But I always craftily add in shots at the walking piece of dog crap named Obama. It's called utilizing English literature like how they teach in college.

And if you are really on your game, you can interject societal trends created by a sitting president, which is clearly quite damaging to America, and outline anywhere, how those trends affect people, you know.. It really isn't difficult. For most. People are moody when they are asked about America, and whenever people see Obama say some new falsehoods about what he did or wants to do, then goes into self admiration mode, it makes millions of people very peeved, and they say mean and witless things.

Things like that are the reasons people might begin to lose it everywhere, BUT THAT ISN'T AN EXCUSE, so don't blame Obama, Understand now? However, what I did was illustrate a societal trend which can account for people going bonkers here and there.

I doubt this concise correction of your Ad Hominem will fix your confirmation bias, but hey, It's Thanksgiving day, and I am feeling neighborly!

Here's a thought.

My British friends. How embarrassing is Prince Phillip? Would this guy be any different?


prince Philip has no political power so its just sad and funny.

The idea of someone like that holding power though is scary.

I don't think mocking the disabled is a strategy. I just don't think he has any emotional control. Someone crosses him and he goes ballistic.

Think about it.

Crazy, is trump originally a British created slang term for farting?

Tabloid cartoonists should have a field day with that one....

At the Tuesday rally in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Trump ridiculed Kovaleski, telling supporters: “Now the poor guy. You ought to see the guy: ‘Err, I don’t know what I said. I don’t remember.’”
www.theguardian.com...




As he spoke, Trump pulled his arms up to his chest and flailed about in what looked like an imitation of the journalist’s disability.





In his Thursday statement, Trump said he had not been aware of the journalist’s disability and “merely mimicked what I thought would be a flustered reporter trying to get out of a statement he made long ago”.


Does anybody believe him?

He's shaking and mocking the guy and now he lies and claims he wasn't mocking him where he clearly was

Imagine this kind of liar as a president?

He's dangerously delusional and his supporters would follow him to hell...

And as Trump and his followers were descending into Hell where he had just led them, they would all say “were going to heaven"

That is massive self deception one of the most dangerous traits a people can exhibit

It seems like trump is just treating him like any other overly critical reporter.

Most people with disabilities are more insulted and humiliated by people patronizing them and treating them with kid gloves instead of treating them like everybody else. We abhor "special treatment."

Good question.

I'd say Phill the Greek is far more embarrassing as he does it on such a frequent basis. Thankfully he has no power, but he does have the press so gets away with saying whatever he wants.

Donald Trump fires off epic statement, tweetstorm after being accused of mocking reporter's physical disability

Trump denies mocking journalist who has disability, demands an apology

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.”
...
"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.”

Nice.

He is clearly and totally mocking the reporter's disability. What a schmuck. And the bigger schmucks are people who still support this asshat.
