Did Trump Mock A Disabled Reporter?

Media Invented Lie About Trump Mocking Disabled Reporter
The Washington Post’s latest ugliness was to exploit the disability of a newspaper reporter in order to smear the Republican nominee for president. Then — and this is the least surprising part of the story — the Post lied about it. 
Other than the subject of that paragraph — which I slyly switched from Trump to the media — that is an exact paraphrase of the Post’s opening lines from an editorial hawking the media’s most successful lie about Donald Trump: that he mocked a man for being disabled. 
It was perfectly obvious that Trump was not mimicking any disability that Serge has, but I didn’t have the smoking gun to prove that the media were lying and knew they were lying. Now we have it. 
A group called Catholics 4 Trump has posted a video clip of another part of that same speech, in which Trump imitates a flustered general. Guess what? He does the exact same arm flailing. In another speech, Trump pretended to be a timorous Ted Cruz. 
Again, he does the exact same arm flailing. 
First, here's a video of the reporter, so you can see his disability. Note that the reporter's hand seems to be a little small, and stuck in a certain position. Neither his arm, his hand, nor any other part of his body are spastic, waving around, or the like.

Now, here's a video of Trump supposedly making fun of the reporter's disability.

Now, here's a video of Trump making fun of Ted Cruz' disability (which, of course, Ted Cruz does not have).

Now, in this next video, you can see Trump make fun of a U.S. General using the same motions and voice inflections.

Neither the general nor Cruz is disabled. If a jury ever saw these videos, it would acquit Trump immediately. Trump’s impression of a groveling reporter is just like his imitation of a groveling general and just like his imitation of a groveling U.S. senator. 
He’s like Rich Little that way: All his impressions look the same. 
Perhaps Trump is not a subtle actor, but he’s utterly innocent of making fun of a disabled person. 
Now consider the media’s role in manufacturing, and then protecting, this lie. Reporters were at Trump’s speech. They were filming it. They saw him do the identical imitation of a general during that same speech. 
The media knew damn well that Trump does the arm-waving routine whenever he’s pretending to be a flustered person. But they never allowed the public to see the clip of Trump doing the same imitation of a general. That is proof that the media knew they were lying.

Bloomberg: Hungary to crackdown on Soros groups

GatesofVienna: Political Islam is ALL of it Here is one of Bill Warner’s new videos, “Hijra, Islamic Migration”.
But it is so much more than that. With each of his expositions you can learn something new, sometimes with his charts, sometimes just with his ideas, often with his Socratic questions.
The progressive map showing the conquest of the Arabian Peninsula followed by the subjugation of other areas once they moved in, is sobering. That’s one reason Dr. Warner says he never talks about Muslims as individuals (except for Mohammed). His interest is jihad and sharia, i.e., ISLAM. By coincidence, that’s a habit I began about ten years ago. There is no point in naming names when the ultimate goal is saturation of a culture by Islam via the various forms of jihad.

Dr. Warner notes that the American media and academia attack his character, calling him “unbalanced” – I presume they mean he’s mentally unbalanced. However, he observes that when he visits Europe and is interviewed, the whole of the program is simply aired – no personal
attacks.One wonders if it is a courtesy extended to him as a guest; I cannot imagine the EU permitting such a discussion by its own people.

Even if you think there’s nothing new here, or perhaps especially if you do, a careful reading of his material is sure to give you new ideas.For me, it was the three pillars holding up sharia law. Yes, I know what they are, but to see them visualized is a help. Bill Warner is a born teacher…and I love his Tennessee accent.

OT - excellent commentary by Anne Marie Waters to Q&A . . .
