When he made the same gestures to others was he mocking their disabilities? No, because they were not disabled. But in this instance he is?

You just refuse to give him the benefit of the doubt, instead resorting to circumstantial ad hominem and attributing motive.

It does make him look like a disabled retard.


Is that your sense of humor at work again?

So basically it's an habit for Trump. But still he should have known better than that because he should have known that his waving his arms could be taken as mocking him, knowing that he was disabled.
So the point is moot.


He didn't even remember the reporter.

Him having a long history of pantomiming disability (even in those who aren't disabled) doesn't debunk him mocking the reporter.

Ugh. A cyber-wink. No wonder hashtags get you going.

It is clearly your opinion that he wasn't making fun of the reporter. Many feel that he was. Either way, it was a stupid act.

Now you're reading my mind? I'm stating the fact that the opinions go both ways on Mr. Trump's action. You don't know what I think, and there's no "ad hominem" involved, as I have not called you any names, or decried your argument on the basis of mean things I might say to you.

You're making a fallacious argument based on your opinion, not upon facts.

That's not even an argument. It doesn't not debunk him either.

You're pretty strange. But you're ok in my book. Sometimes you do give good debates.

Like I said it's a moot point.

"Doesn't not debunk"?

Really? You're taking it to double negative territory?

He has a long history of acting like those he disagrees with are somehow "retarded". In the reporter's case... he actually had a disability. It's really not that complicated.

We went through extensive arguments at the time Trump did this.

It is very obvious to me that Trump IS ridiculing the reporter because of the angle of his elbows to his body.

Other than that, Mr. Trump is a fairly uninspired mime (in my opinion), and he does make the same stupid sound with the same stupid look on his face in different situations (in my opinion) ... but that's merely a function of his low intellectual wattage (again, in my opinion).

Yeah. I agree that he was mocking that reporter but that's just my opinion.

Sorry, I did not mean you personally.

The opinion that he mocked a disabled reporter was passed off as fact to the credulous for quite some time. The video evidence proves it as false. Therefor it is opinion? No bubble gum could stretch between that logic.

Please enlighten me. I am unaware of his past imitations of the disabled.

Except that the video doesn't "prove that" at all.

It can just as easily be said that the video shows he has a long history of acting like those he disagrees with are somehow "retarded".

Bring up the evidence and we can weigh it against evidence to the contrary.

You've brought no "evidence to the contrary" to compare to, but I do appreciate you bringing that video evidence of his long history to illustrate the point I've been making.

A better question would be...
Why did Trump lie that he didn't know that reporter?

Because you haven't brought up the evidence.
