MEDIA INVENTED LIE ABOUT TRUMP MOCKING DISABLED REPORTER

August 31, 2016

Just when you think the media could not possibly become more loathsome, the Fourth Estate bullies prove you wrong again. The Washington Post's latest ugliness was to exploit the disability of a newspaper reporter in order to smear the Republican nominee for president. Then -- and this is the least surprising part of the story -- the Post lied about it.


Other than the subject of that paragraph -- which I slyly switched from Trump to the media -- that is an exact paraphrase of the Post's opening lines from an editorial hawking the media's most successful lie about Donald Trump: that he mocked a man for being disabled.


I have a chapter on that lie in my new book, In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!, It was perfectly obvious that Trump was not mimicking any disability that Serge has, but I didn't have the smoking gun to prove that the media were lying and knew they were lying. Now we have it.


A group called Catholics 4 Trump has posted a video clip of another part of that same speech, in which Trump imitates a flustered general. Guess what? He does the exact same arm flailing.


In another speech, Trump pretended to be a timorous Ted Cruz. Again, he does the exact same arm flailing. You can see the videos here: http://www.catholics4trump.com/the-true ... disability


Neither the general nor Cruz is disabled.


If a jury ever saw these videos, it would acquit Trump immediately. Trump's impression of a groveling reporter is just like his imitation of a groveling general and just like his imitation of a groveling U.S. senator. He's like Rich Little that way: All his impressions look the same.



Perhaps Trump is not a subtle actor, but he's utterly innocent of making fun of a disabled person.


Now consider the media's role in manufacturing, and then protecting, this lie. Reporters were at Trump's speech. They were filming it. They saw him do the identical imitation of a general during that same speech.


The media knew damn well that Trump does the arm-waving routine whenever he's pretending to be a flustered person. But they never allowed the public to see the clip of Trump doing the same imitation of a general.


That is proof that the media knew they were lying.


And isn't it curious that in the midst of the frenzy over Trump's allegedly mocking a disabled reporter, you've never seen the reporter interviewed? Why don't they show us Serge, so that the public can gasp in horror and say, Why Trump's imitation is the spitting image of Serge Kovaleski!


The reason the media won't show an interview with Serge is that if you ever saw him speaking, it would be blindingly obvious that Trump's imitation isn't in the same universe as Serge's affliction. Serge speaks perfectly calmly. He does not twitch, jerk or flail his arms. (That's Debbie Wasserman Schultz you're thinking of.)


There's an old interview with Serge here: http://www.catholics4trump.com/wapo-fac ... disability.


The absence of a current Serge interview is the dog that didn't bark. The only reason you will never see anything but a still photo of Serge is so that the media can trick the public into believing he has something like cerebral palsy.


In fact, his disability is almost the exact opposite of what Trump was doing: Serge has arthrogryposis, which locks his wrists in place, actually preventing movement.


We also have proof that the media know they are lying about Trump mocking a disabled man. In the "Comments" section to a Washington Post article pushing this lie, someone posted a perfectly respectful response that included the Catholics 4 Trump videos -- of Trump doing the exact same imitation of a general and of Serge being interviewed. The Post deleted the comment -- and pronto!


Why did the Post instantly remove those videos from the "Comments" section? To hide the evidence of its lying.


That's consciousness of guilt. The Post couldn't allow anyone to see those videos because then everyone would see that this is how Trump imitates any frightened person. Maybe he won't be hired by "Saturday Night Live" as a sketch comedian -- and as you know, that show will hire almost anybody these days -- but Trump did not "mock" a disabled man.


None of the media's other hysterical anti-Trump campaigns are getting any traction. Trump said a Hispanic judge was biased against him? It's hard for people to be outraged when our entire justice system is premised on the idea that all-white juries can't be trusted to deliver fair verdicts to black defendants.


Trump criticized a Gold Star Dad? Yes, but that Gold Star Dad also happened to be a snarling Muslim who took the stage at the Democratic National Convention in order to viciously lecture Trump, saying he has no right to venture opinions because his kid didn't die in Iraq. Khizr Khan isn't exactly a baby seal.


Trump called Hillary the "MVP" of ISIS? Most people didn't need the media's earnest "fact-checks" establishing beyond dispute that ISIS has not, in fact, given Hillary the MVP award. Nor "Most Improved." Nor "Best Spirit.”


Of all things Trump has been accused of, the claim that he made fun of a disabled person is the only one that has hurt him -- and justly so, if it were true. But now we know it was a big, fat, intentional lie by our guardians of truth and justice in the media.

I refuse to watch liberal news anymore! I just watched your interview with Steph from Yahoo news, wow was I wrong in thinking they were pretty fair. I've also boycotted movies for years and now this year, it's tv altogether. I get my news from reliable sources only! Thank you Ann for sticking up for what is only right!

I am hooked on Ann for several reasons........being male it is pretty darn obvious.

But the wit, the intelligence..........and, my personal favorite, the tearing apart of liberals. Funny thing is, Ann is so fast that the America hating liberal not only has no clue what just happened but she rips into them again while they are still trying to figure the last ripping. Ripfest. And the looks on their faces...........

I would love to see Ann discuss things with the child like guy running for v.p. on the democratic side. What a dufus that one is.

The lying media is beyond contempt. Man.........what has happened to America?

So Ann, you now claim Trump was imitating a "flustered person?" In your new book, you give a different explanation. You still denied Trump was making fun of Serge, a disabled reporter, but instead profess Trump was impersonating a "standard retard."

Can we assume in all of your many books and many interviews, that you too are impersonating a "standard retard?"

the media also invented lies about Tim Kaine being a liberal

except now all the liberal-centric organizations, special interest groups and non profits scream how he's always walked on water since his humble beginnings

it's hardly a wonder the human right campaign is abbreviated as hrc

and I know conservative media doesn't want to point it out

they've got their own echo chamber and there's the need to constant rev up their political base

but there's an absurdity when Pence (Trump) has a stronger record of being more friendly than Kaine

that like hillary will say anything, everything to get elected

and even the people that called him out years ago

just give it a pass because the bar has been set so low their only defense is he's not Trump

Trump has a history of making fun of people based on their physical status.

Before he imitated Serge, he spoke about Charles Krauthammer from Fox news. Krauthammer, a paraplegic was pointing out Trumps deficiencies, and Trump replied "now I've got to listen to guy that can't buy a pair of pants?"

He also insulted Carly Fiorina and Clinton for their looks, called Marco Rubio "Little Marco." He's remarked many times a women's worth is proportional to their looks, including "flat-chested women cannot be a 10." His campaign has ads featuring Clinton coughing, getting assistance up steps, and fainting getting into her van. He also mimicked her pneumonia on stage at one of his rallies.

So no, the media did not "make up" a lie about Trump mocking a disabled reporter, or the many times he has insulted others solely for their physical appearance, health or abilities. They don't have to make it up; there's plenty of video where he himself proves he is an ableist a$$hole.

So if you still represent Trump despite him being a despicable person, fine. Just realize his is despicable, and no amount of spin will prove otherwise.

Ann, everyone here has already said they love your wit and humor and intelligence. I'd just like to add my name.
I'm reading your latest and almost finished. It is enlightening and funny too. Thanks and keep up the excellent work.

Might as well mention the topic eh ? You cover that reporter thing in In Trump We Trust, and very well. You also do a
great expose of the cheering Muslims on 9/11. I just don't get it. Why is the media so subversive and anti-American.

Well, that's it,,take care

First, let me say, while I don't spend much time here, I have purchased most of Anne's books, and have been a supporter/follower of Anne Coulter's for longer than either of us are willing to confess to. Why? Because she has been consistently right. She has also written facts that have been WELL researched. So unlike MOST "activist, political hacks, and opinion pundits" When you read her work, you are acquiring knowledge, not just getting a view point.

That all said, now on THIS topic, I can honestly confess to the fact that I have NOT owned a TV set in over 20 years now, and feel I am a much better person for it. I just finished watching a interview with Anne and Tavis (don't know what "channel" he hails), but his stance was truly putrid. He was trying to invoke an emotional appeal, and call it a fact. Now, how does that tie in to "Media lie"? It ties in, because this seems to be how the media has become. They (the media) will make a statement, and they believe the public accepts that as factual. NOT ONLY do they expect US to accept it, they are so far gone, they use themselves as a "source" for proof (which of course is beyond moronic). It kind of goes along with the old political position of "If you tell a lie often and long enough it becomes the truth" which of course is complete nonsense. YET, they believe that is true. We the People are no longer buying into this. This election is pure proof of that. IF the people were "accepting" what the media is shoveling, then there is NO WAY President Elect D. Trump would have won. THIS is the beginning of the end, of the "mainstream media". This is the beginning of the end of the Globalist Push to end the Free West, and bring it into their fold of "8 World Regions" they dream of. We have a CHANCE to reclaim the Republic, and we better NOT let our guard down even for a minute, and need to push hard and continuously against the Globalist, because I can guarantee you, they are NOT done with this.
