Republican presidential contender Donald Trump has been criticised for mocking a disabled New York Times reporter.
Mr Trump performed an impression of Serge Kovaleski, who suffers from a congenital joint condition, at a rally.
He has used a 2001 article by Mr Kovaleski to back up widely disputed claims that "thousands" of Muslims in New Jersey celebrated the 9/11 attacks.
The New York Times called Mr Trump's actions "outrageous".

Since Trump's claims about Muslim Americans celebrating 9/11, the reporter has said he does "not recall anyone saying there were thousands, or even hundreds, of people celebrating".
The press has lied, because Trump never said there were thousands or hundreds of Muslims celebrating the destruction of the World Trade Center. He only used an analogy to indicate the term "tailgate" used by the The Washing post reporters signified there were far more than two such Muslim celebrants.
The press is relentless!!
I wish the Trump Family a Happy Thanksgiving
It’s amazing how they constantly misquote this guy and exaggerate what he does. Meanwhile Hillary is completely coddled and protected. One of THE most corrupt politicians in this nations history and they protect her. This press can EAT ME with this crap.
Stand up Chuck!
I’m sick of all the Psychological Terrorism by the left and their media minions.
Why doesn’t trump just stop with the mocking and move on in a more appropriate manner. Like a gentleman, for example.
if you can’t stand the heat , get out of the kitchen
He’s not really a reporter, he’s an affirmative action slot filler
I watched the video and Trump was not mocking his disability in any way, what he was mocking was the reporters perceived apoplectic denials wen put on the record.
Geez, what a pantload we hear from the Brits! You know, the people who have no-go zones for the police in Muslim neighborhoods!
Frank “dead rat head” Luntz and others have said they have found that NOTHING will dissuade Trump supporters. This time we will not be fooled into nominating the candidate they pick for us and they are beginning to understand that.
“Stand up Chuck.”
Yes, and where was the media outrage over that remark?
I don’t think he was mocking the guy. I mean he wrote the article 14 years ago and I doubt Trump knows him. Trump was just waving his arms around to act like a hysterical liberal. Common motion most people do when describing something crazy. NYT grasping for straws.
Let's not make asses out of ourselves
Life is going to suck for these weenies under President Trump.
I can hardly wait.
Does the New York Slimes seriously think Trump is familiar with every disability of ever one of their two bit reporters?
Poor liberal crybaby media can dish it out but they can’t take it?
Their thin skins can’t take criticism. Sucks to be them.
Trump is not going to lose votes by attacking the New York Times.
I’m just getting tired of the theatrics.
I'm sure the GOPe will still do its utmost to fix the nomination. If so, they are going to have to do it through voter fraud. No way would anyone with a brain cell vote for Yeb or whoever the GOP hierarchy tries to force down our throats.
Hey BBC, take your Brit white faggotry and kiss my American Ass!
