At the Democratic National Convention speakers are repeating the claim, amplified ad nauseam by the left, the MSM, and establishment GOP opponents over the past year, that Donald Trump mocked the disability of New York Times reporter, Serge Kovaleski.

This accusation has served as a very convenient tool to both smear Trump’s character and to avoid having to confront him on substantive political issues. It’s not true. Trump wasn’t mocking the reporters disability…in fact the reporter Serge Kovalesk’s disability is a congenital condition called arthrogryposis. Arthrogryposis causes restricted movement in the joints but does not cause spasms or uncontrolled moving of the limbs like cerebral palsy does. And Mr. Trump has used the same gesture when describing other non-disabled people being frantic (including Ted Cruz).

The video below tells the story of Donald Trump and the disabled reporter that the media is not telling you.
