Why did Trump lie that he didn't know that reporter?
"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"
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."
With his imeccable memories it's pretty hard to forget a report with arthrogryposis, especially when he has spent many times with him and being on first name basis.

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:
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.
