Not mocking people for traits not under their control was once known as "manners".

I can respond. Trump did NOT insult all Mexicans. He was referring to illegal aliens. Anyone who is reasonably intelligent knows that.

Nudge my memory - what Presidential candidate was that, again?

I watched the video and I didn't see Trump mocking the reporter because of his physical disability. He mocks the media because they are the media and the disability that the media has isn't physical.

I guess this is another in the string of lame attacks that Jeb's people are doing. I can tell you I wouldn't pay much to anyone for this kind of story.

Hillary wouldn't need to publicly mock anyone, they would just disappear or commit suicide. Death by Clinton.

Trump is pretty clean if they have to stoop to this sort of thing. All the stuff they have been coming up with truly is a "hoot". It was the same with Carson. When you hold just about anyone up next to Clinton, they look darn good.

Go back and read what I said. I'm tired of your lack of reading comprehension skills.

That does make for a rather lacking comparison, then - doesn't it? You know it, and I know it: The mockery, despicable as it was, wasn't part of anyone's campaign, much less spoken by any candidate. Whereas here, we have Trump mocking someone for their disability - in person.

What you are saying is we need to limit free speech and be PC. That incorporates and translates into being criticized for telling the plane truth. If minorities are offended by the truth it's up to them to be tolerant. Politicians are pushing a oneway street on tolerance. No better example of that than Christians around the world who are told to change while Muslims are not ask to change anything. I say Muslims need to be tolerant and need to be schooled on tolerance. Christians shouldn't be ask to remove a neckless with a cross on it to appease any other group. I reject your statement that - "that is just the way it is" I want to see someone elected who rejects it also.
Trump is not an entertainer, he is a moron trying to buy and polarize himself into the White House. He should remember that the President is not just the president of a fan club, but of the entire population.

Entertainers in politics are not a good idea, anyway. Just look at Reagan or Schwarzenegger. People should stick with what they are good at.
