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


Are you sure he's lying? Trump has been speaking to reporters nearly his whole life.

Lol you said:




"Arthrogryposis limits the movement of the arms. Trump was moving his arms. If it was an imitation of the disability, it was a poor one"


In my interpretation you suggest Trump wasn't imitating the reporter due to arm movement..anyway no point beating a dead horse..it's just my interpretation

Trump insisted that he couldn’t have known the man was disabled because "I have no idea who this reporter, Serge Kovaleski is, what he looks like or his level of intelligence. … Despite having one of the all-time great memories I certainly do not remember him."

Yeah sorry, I do not see how it is possible that Trump remembers every reporter he's ever met, let alone their disabilities.

How do you know he was lying about knowing the reporter?

Maybe he was lying about "having one of the all-time great memories" instead.

With his imeccable memories it's pretty hard to forget a reporter with arthrogryposis, especially when he has spent many times with him and being on first name basis.

That's pretty obvious.

Meeting Trump was probably a memorable experience. Probably not so much for Trump.

Maybe you're right. Trump has poor memories.

Wow, are people still debating whether he mocked the disabled reporter?

Lol...

LOL I know right. I've said twice that the point is moot few pages ago.

Yep. It does seem obvious. But who knows? It's not important.

No comment.

By the way, you know he makes those gestures all the time? Towards people that are not disabled?

Yes yes, but it's Trump and hes an a-hole, so he was definitely mocking the reporters disabilities in front of people live on TV.

Yes I know and Les made that point with a video of him doing the same thing with others.

Here we go again. LOL. And you told us to stop.

The issue is if he actually remembered who he was. But as we have agreed last page he has poor memories despite him saying otherwise.

o it's cool to position ones hand and make stuttering noises in a demeanor that resemble as a reporters disability (who was directly being addressed) because it's "deserved," teasing - and not mockery, however, it's not cool to call the man who made such gestures a meaningless gesture because a platitude of reasons ranging from:

FCC violations
It's public broadcast and therefore ITZ 4 DA CHILDREN
It's "tasteless, disgusting, etc"


He made the same gestures about many people, including Ted Cruz.

I think you're confusing my views with someone else's in order to set up a little strawman that you can knock down. I never said anything about the FCC, about children, nor did I say Colbert's remarks were disgusting and tasteless. Another swing and a miss.


My comment was not a reply to you and was not singling you out.

But hey, if the shoe fits. You called it.
