On Thursday Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) reminded America of the kind of person Donald Trump truly is.
The California Congresswoman spoke on the house floor next to an enlarged photo of Trump mocking a disabled reporter during the 2016 campaign.
She used the photo as an example of “how people with disabilities are treated in our society.”
Waters commemorated the 27th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act a day earlier.
“Our president indicated to us what he thinks about people with disabilities long before he was elected, when he mocked a disabled reporter. Mocking the disabled is rude and insensitive and it sends a terrible message to our children.”
Waters’ original plan was to have the photo of Trump mocking the disabled reporter that had a CNN chyron explaining his remarks. But the House presiding officer was against it and told Waters she needed to use a different photo.
“Would you tell us why?” Waters inquired.
“It’s the determination of the chair that it’s a breach of the decorum of the House,” the presiding officer replied.
Waters used an identical photo without the CNN chyron.
Trump came up with a pathetic excuse back in January as to why he mocked Serge Kovaleski of the New York Times, who has a cogenital joint disorder.
“I was never mocking anyone,” Trump told the New York Times in January. “I was calling into question a reporter who had gotten nervous because he had changed his story.”
