Liberal:

I cannot do anything. Because of my situation the government should take care of me, they owe me that because I am different. I should have someone to take care of me. Someone that is sympathetic to my cause. I will rail against a broke and unjust system that does not treat me special. I will tell anyone who will listen about the grave injustice laid upon me by my fellows. I will wallo in self pity all the days of my life.

That is the clear difference. It's not the disability, or anything else in life, it's how we react and how we deal with it,
BS. Don't try to change the subject. The reporter in this discussion is disabled and has a long career as a reporter. He earns a very good living.

The subject of this thread is that Trump mocked the reporter's disability, and then later lied when he said he didn't know the reporter was disabled. Trump is caught in a big lie. Again.

Trump is showing himself to be a liar. He can't be trusted.

Trump blasted by New York Times after mocking reporter with disability


This is the kind of dirt-bag POS some want for President!
IMO Trump got into this Presidential race just to feed his colossal ego with no thought to actually winning the GOP nomination and then go on to vie for the Presidency, now he's the front runner and could be the President ,a job he really has no interest in doing so to dissuade people from voting for him he is throwing out extreme viewpoints ,trouble is the more extreme he gets the more a particular demographic loves him.
If he cant get out of his potential Presidential nomination i think he will come up with some fake medical condition that will force him to abandon the race.

Trump is doing his best to get out of the race, even he didn't see himself polling this well. The problem is that there are a lot of *******s on the right eating up every word that comes out of his mouth.

No one is talking about 'tone' of voice. It's what one says with the voice, not their tone.

LOL, really? Is the reporter in question on welfare? Do you even know if he's conservative or liberal?

Isn't it funny how Trump needs so many people to explain what he is saying - when, in reality, the rest of the world knows EXACTLY what he was portraying.

I guess you will believe what you want to believe but the majority of America is not following Trump's lead.
To borrow a phrase from Carly Fiorina, I think people all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said.

You know that Trump was fully aware - his underlings had to tell him that the reporter was that spaz from the NYT during his morning brief and he ran with it.
