I won't dispute that his actions certainly appeared as though he were mocking the reporter to those who knew the reporter had a handicap. If Trump didn't, it was fitting that he be made aware of how it appeared, I don't have a problem with that. The problem is that there seems to be a trend in trying to make him look bad continually and over nothing, e.g. this tidbit on lowering the flag over last week's shootings. On NBC News Monday, NBC News national security contributor Frank Figliuzzi told host Brian Williams that President Donald Trump was at least inadvertently sending a secret message to the “white supremacist movement” by ordering U.S. flags flown at half-mast due to the deadly shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, to be re-raised on August 8th. The president said that we will fly our flags at half-mast until August 8th. That`s 8/8. Now, I’m not going to imply that he did this deliberately but I am using it as an example of the ignorance of the adversary that`s being demonstrated by the White House. The numbers 88 are very significant in neo-Nazi and white supremacist movement. Why? Because the letter H is the eighth letter of the alphabet and to them, the numbers 88 together stand for “Heil Hitler.”
If this isn't off-the-wall, I don't know what is.
As far as positive things, I don't know what you want me to say..he's trying to do what he and many of us think is best for the country in spite of road-blocks at every turn.
