Discussing the Claim that Donald Trump Mocked a Disabled New York Times Reporter

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of family, after she shared a Twitter screenshot from here

Lisa M.: seriously

Terrence B.: Because he wasn’t mocking a reporter with a disability..

Sara: Although in retrospect, he denied he was making fun of the reporter after the fact, is it a coincidence that the reporter looks like this (see attached photo) and Trump is doing that mocking gesture with his arm in the video:

I wouldn’t give merit to his version of the truth, T. He’s a politician and a pig.

Terrence B.: I understand but the story I seen didn’t come from him but it was to dispell the Comercial of where we seen him making the gestures.. It was pieced together to show a negative when actually it was in response to the area reporter getting caught out that when asked a question about his meeting Trump… But I agree with you.. Don’t like the man but it is what it is now.

Rayn: Hillary Falsely Accuses Trump of Mocking Disabled Reporter:

While it is *technically* true that he wasn’t mocking this reporter’s disability, and that the mainstream media did a lot to help peddle the idea that he did, Trump isn’t totally innocent, either, as he *does* have a habit of mocking people by repeating their words, often in an exaggerated way, while spastically moving his arms, and continuously shaking his head – sometimes even leaving his mouth wide open when doing so. It is no accident that these happen to be classic symptoms of palsy, such as is presented in certain forms of cerebral palsy and in Parkinson’s disease.
