Skip to comments.Donald Trump under fire for mocking disabled reporter

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".

LOL....first thing that came to my mind too...
Pile it on, Donald!
What is a good lie or two among friends. Trump does not make fun of handicaps. Trump makes fun of liars.
Serge to Trump: You can’t criticize me for my NY hit pieces because I’m handicapped!
I’m with you. It’s high time we had a bully in our corner! I’m sick to the point of puking over the liberal pansies that have taken over the Republicrat Party.
The Democrat Party is dying a slow death and is anathema to America’s climbing out of the stinking Obama swamp.
The Republicrat Party is just another head on the one party snake.
The NY Times has alway used Serge’s handicap as an intimidation tactic to silence critics of his hit pieces. It won’t work with Trump.
Serge playing the “I’m Handicapped” Card on Twitter:
Exactly how did Trump mock him? I don’t for minute think Trump mocked his physical disability.
I saw Trump’s Myrtle Beach speech and he mentioned that article from the Post and the author. I think all he said was how they are acting like they never even wrote the piece. If he mocked that guy it was only in reference to the guy disowning his own story nothing else.
I bet Trump, like most of the rest of us, have no idea about any physical problems. Another Lying Hit Piece.
Looking at this thread, Trump is certainly bringing out the best in people isn’t he?
Don’t have my speakers connected so can’t here what is said, but........

The New York Times talk about disabled.
Ronald Reagan was a gentleman who by the time he ran fro the presidency had a history of arguing on behalf of liberty and the constitution.
“I love Trumpâs fearless war against PC garbage, but I really think this kind of thing is the wrong kind of behavior for a President”
Same here. I agree with most of what he’s saying on the campaign trail, but in time, people are going to tire of the antics. Cruz is by far the more genial and presidential of the two.
More importantly, does Trump have an answer for America's voter fraud problem?
