    Media critcizes Trump for mocking reporter, but where were they when Obama did this?



    Obama got a pass when he mocked the Special Olympics on Leno…but that was Obama.

    That is your claim.

    In reality, Obama was roundly criticised for it at the time. Revise your history much?

    President Barack Obama has apologized to the chairman of the Special Olympics for his late-night talk show quip equating his bowling skills to those of athletes with disabilities.

    Next trash thread, please - this one's done.

    @meridian5455: are you critical of Trump's horrible conduct towards this disabled man?

    I hope for their party's sake they come up with something better than this nonsense to go after Trump with or he's going sail into the White House.

    He insulted a reporter? Good luck getting Republicans and Independents to turn on Trump over that...

    Something tells me they care about having good jobs in America again just a little more than that.

    So, Trump's profound disrespect for this disabled man AND his dishonesty about it do not disturb you?

    What would he have to do to lose your support? Boil babies in oil?

    lol...

    Trump probably didn't even know he was disabled anyway. Was probably just making fun of a reporter who annoyed him and used what material he could find.

    In any case: comparing this incident to boiling babies in oil proves just how insane politics has caused you to become.

    He apologized fast.

    What kind of person would ever talk like that anyway? If he felt comfortable saying that on national television, you can imagine how much worse he would say in private.

    But he was smart enough to realize what a faux pas he made and how he would look to his supporters, and he apologized quickly.

    Trump probably didn't even know the man was disabled.

    This story is silly. Just another lame attempt to paint him as a bigot - only this time against disabled people. Just like when he called Rosie O''donnel a pig that somehow means he hates all women.

    So sick of these kind of tactics.

    I should start accusing everyone who insults me on this forum as being a racists sexist who is bigoted against white men.

    I do remember the controversy surrounding Obama vaguely. Something about the special olympics I believe? So yeah, he did get some shit over it. I remember.
