The 69-year-old Republican Presidential hopeful was caught mimicking Serge Kovaleski and it was absolutely disgraceful!
According Hollywood Life, Donald has repeatedly cited a Washington Post article written by Serge a week after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York City, which says, "a number of people…were allegedly seen celebrating” in northern New Jersey. He’s been bringing it up on several campaign stops, but his latest mention featured Donald openly mocking Serge’s arthrogryposis. (It’s a condition that can cause joints to get stuck in one position and victims are often born with weaker or missing muscles).
At a campaign stop in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Donald flailed his arms while mentioning Serge. “Now the poor guy, you gotta see this guy: ‘Uh, I don’t know what I said. I don’t remember.’ He’s going, “I don’t remember. Maybe that’s what I said. This was 14 years ago, he didn’t do a retraction!"
A spokeswoman for the New York Times said, “We think it’s outrageous that he would ridicule the appearance of one of our reporters.” Serge has personally taken to his Twitter account November 26 to share links about the shameful incident.
