I obviously would never advocate making fun of anyone. I even cringe when I see jokes of people making fun of Clinton's appearance, laugh and voice. I don't like when people make fun of Trump's hair. These things, like a disability, cannot be helped. Yet people make fun of them anyway. I have cerebral palsy, and I've been made fun of a million times. I'm not going to crumble and pout. Life moves on, and I hope I don't behave like that to anyone else.
But, to be honest, I'm not convinced that Trump even made fun of the reporter with arthogryposis.
I just spent over thirty minutes viewing videos of Trump getting excited over reporters. His movements are practically identical for anyone he is angry with. Also, with arthogryposis, involuntary movements aren't part of the disability. His limbs are basically stuck in one position but they aren't spastic when he talks. He is still. Therefore, it wouldn't make any sense why Trump would be spastic when making fun of someone who isn't at all spastic. People with cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and other neurological disabilities have spasms when talking. People with muscular disabilities do not. They rarely even have a speech disabilities as well.
In the supposed moment Trump made fun of this guy, Trump was moving spastically. The reporter doesn't do that. I believe this reporter used his disability to deflect from himself making untruths in his reporting. That's the whole reason why Trump was mad at him in the first place.
But, instead of dealing with his own misgivings in his writings, he turned it around saying Trump made fun of him. Well played and probably gained a few Clinton votes. But, I'm a special education teacher and I have been around disabilities my entire life to know the difference. If I'm wrong, I'm sorry - but as of right now, I think I'm correct.
Trump, in multiple interviews about this reporter, repeats the same information. Trump has spoken to possibly thousands of reporters through the years and doesn't even remember what the reporter looked like. How would he remember what this one looked like of all the thousands he has talked to? Trump doesn't strike me as a guy that remembers every face to the name. Now Trump might be lying or he is telling the truth but as we know in this election, the truth isn't a big factor on the Clinton side either.
Hilary Clinton has been accused of making fun of people with mental challenges and retardation. Did she or didn't she? Can you prove it? If she did, would it sway your vote? My guess is no.
I'm voting for Trump or I'm voting for no one. I never said I'm a huge fan of Trump or even any kind of fan.. I like that he has no problems telling people exactly how he thinks and he doesn't play with political correctness. I like that he's not owned by the GOP or the Democratic Party but he's fresh face to politics. I like that he doesn't like liberal media. I like that he works hard and he has done several good things for people and society. I like he is not afraid to stand up to ISIS and want to protect people in our country. I think he's more patriotic than Clinton. I think he is more pro life than Clinton.
Is Donald Trump my first pick for president? No. I wanted Ben Carson, and I like Trump's kids - wish they were running. But, unfortunately, we have Trump or Clinton. And I know I'm a woman and have a disability and should be voting for Clinton. However, I can't get behind someone who has done so many illegal things and lies - not once - but over and over again. Clinton along with Obama are again the two most pro abortion politicians out there. Usually, pro-choicers are saddened by abortion and agree on some restrictions. They even acknowledge that the unborn baby has some rights at some point. Not Clinton. A few days ago, she even said a baby at 40 weeks of gestation should have no rights at all.
If someone is that far away from reality and logic, how can anyone trust her? She's saying that killing a baby minutes before birth is fine but moments after is not. And, as far as disabilities, Clinton sees no ban needed for aborting babies with disabilities. How can someone care about disabilities and yet find nothing wrong in killing an unborn baby simply because of a disability? It doesn't make sense.
