Trump did NOT mock a disabled reporter. He makes funny gestures all the time
This was the second video I made about Trump following the viral success of the first one which you can see here:
Trump had been smeared in the media as someone who mocks disabled people because he did some funny gestures while imitating a NY Times journalist who has a disabled arm.
What had happened was that during his campaign Trump had made this statement about the Twin Tower attack in 2001:
“I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. Thousands of people were cheering.”
Media organisations and fact-chekers said Trump was lying but he found a report in the Washington Post written by Serge Kovaleski on September the 18th, 2001 which seemed to confirm his statement:
"law enforcement authorities detained and questioned a number of people who were allegedly seen celebrating the attacks and holding tailgate-style parties on rooftops while they watched the devastation on the other side of the river."
Kovaleski subsequently seemed to walk back on what he had written in his report stating:
“I certainly do not remember anyone saying that thousands or even hundreds of people were celebrating. That was not the case, as best as I can remember.”
Trump ended up doing an impression of Kovaleski walking back his claim at one of his campaign rallies while relating this story. He made funny gestures flailing his arms around. Kovaleski had a disabled arm but Trump says he never met him or didn't know he ever met him. Kovaleski insisted he had met him years ago and was therefor, he believed mocking him for his disability.
I made this video to show that Trump often makes weird gestures with his hands when imitating people. It was removed from youtube when my channel was deleted and I'm not sure if it was archived anywhere.
