Trump Insults People With Disabilities, AGAIN! This Time It’s The Paralympians

During a White House event that was supposed to honor the Paralympians, the US president did what he does best: He somehow managed to turn what should have been a nice event into an opportunity to insult people.

When addressing the Paralympic athletes in particular, Trump said one of his most cringe-worthy comments ever:

“What happened with the Paralympics was so incredible and so inspiring to me. And I watched – it’s a little tough to watch too much ― but I watched as much as I could.”

You know what’s “a little tough to watch” Mr President? Literally everything you’ve being doing and saying since you became President. Because to you, the United States has become one giant stomach ulcer for the entire world to deal with. You have proven time and again you have absolutely no sense of empathy toward people with disabilities.

Trumps insulting words caused a well-deserved backlash, so much so that the Paralympics organization had to respond.

“Record numbers around the world are not finding Paralympics tough to watch. Billions of viewers now take in the Paralympics in hundreds of countries around the world.”

Many notable Olympians, like figure skater Adam Rippon, skipped out on the White House event.

Rippon wasn’t alone in his disgust. While Trump surely says and does insulting, vile things on a consistent basis – humiliating Paralympians at an event intended to honor their athletic ability didn’t sit well with anybody.

This is not the first time Trump insults people with disabilities: At a South Carolina rally in November 2015, he openly mocked New York Times investigative reporter Serge Kovaleski, who has arthrogryposis, a disease that limits the function of his joints.
