    The video of trump mocking a disabled reporter was cgi created by George Lucas. So was every other video and recording of him acting like a total asshole.

    That makes absolutely no sense. Are you saying that anyone who makes untruthful statements should be mocked as if they had a physical disability and that Trump doing so was merely a coincidence? Man! You really have to do some mental gymnastics to convince yourself with that type of pseudo logic.

    He imitated the man's disability. Yes, that is mocking his disability. I don't agree at all with what Meryl Streep did. But Trump has to own his actions when it comes to that reporter and Trump's really crass, childish imitation of him.

    Actually that makes more sense than a777.

    Someone please take hiw Twitter away.

    His vindictiveness is that of a 9 year old. Neener, neener, neener. Act like a President for crying out loud. What is going to happen when other countries call him out?

    Again and again and again we are told how Trump is going to raise the bar and Make America Great Again and then we have Trump digging holes to lower the bar.

    What is the man's disability?

    Speaking just for myself, my primary fear is that at the end of the next four years (or god forbid, eight years), the bar will fall so low we'll forget to demand class, experience, principles, and a reading and speaking above the fourth grade in preparation for the next president.

    This is essentially at the heart of my personal conflict in the philosophical question of whether or not Trump should be allowed to keep his twitter account. If he continues to act like a total asshole on that format, there's no question of what kind of person he is. But if by doing so we're gradually forced into a numb acceptance of what is expected of the Presidency, we're all objectively harmed by that.
