    No. You think it excuses his behavior, but it doesn't. Period. It only reinforces that not only was he making fun of the disabled reporter, he has a history of making fun of disabled and handicapped people.

    The fact that you don't know the difference between facts and propaganda is why no one can take you seriously.

    We're not talking about Wordforge. We're talking about the president of the united states.

    That you don't understand the difference... , and don't understand the difference between facts and propaganda ... all of it. All of it is why you can't be taken seriously.

    :rofl: I can literally say the same thing about you.

    :shrug: So? I didn't hear your autistic screeching when Obama was making fun of his political opponents.

    You sure are projecting quite a bit.

    Wow. That's a lot of effort for such a flimsy comeback.

    Examples of this? The closest thing I can come up with was his "special olympics" comment, but in that case:

    1) he was making fun of himself, and

    2) he admitted he was wrong to say that and apologized, something Trump has never done about anything.

    Oh, I don't know, how about that comment about people clinging to guns and religion that people such as yourself like to defend? :diacanu:

    Says the person who literally has no comeback, and who has constantly repeated the same lies in an effort to try to make them true. :diacanu:

    Ok, how about it? First of all, are you aware of the original context of that remark? For one thing, he was talking about voters, not political opponents. For another, he was explaining to supporters why it was difficult for Democrats to gain much traction in rural areas. It was rather inartfully put, but then again it was a private conversation, not a campaign speech.

    Nothing else, then?

    So, no actual examples of Obama making fun of opponents during a campaign speech?

    "Making fun of [his] political opponents" was your phrase, not mine. And I assumed we were making an apples to apples comparison, since Trump's mockery occurred during campaign speeches. But since you have insisted on moving the goalposts, I'll settle for any example of Obama making fun of anybody, in any context.

    No, you're attempting to stack the deck by narrowing the circumstances, as if there is a difference.

    There's no difference to you in how Trump and Obama comport themselves and how they treat others? That's what you want to go with?

    What? You're veering dangerously close to @Eminence territory. What lies do I constantly repeat in an effort to make them true?

    Only everything you posted in response to what I said. Like, for example, claiming I'm a Trump supporter because I call out lies for what they are.

    When's the last time you called out one of Trump's lies?

    Why would I have to do that when he does such a good job of that himself? :diacanu:
