Every day now, Donald Trump finds a way to disgust and repulse me with some new, even more disgusting thing than the day before. In fact, I have come to learn that the “it couldn’t possibly get any worse from here” idea is a moot one with Trump “in charge.” Fact of the matter is — it can always get worse.
Trump himself has really driven this point home here lately, with the election just around the corner, and his desperation growing at an alarming rate with each passing moment. Suffice it to say, if Donald Trump ever did have a bottom, somewhere down in the fiery depths of Hell, he certainly doesn’t anymore.
No one will soon forget Trump’s now-infamous mocking of disabled New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, who suffers from a chronic joint condition, in 2015, at a rally ahead of the 2016 presidential election that he would go on to “win.”
To be perfectly honest, I will never understand how that very moment didn’t serve as the end of Donald Trump’s very short political career. But nevertheless, the guy managed to weasel his way into the White House, which brought us to where we are today.
This afternoon, Donald continued on his schedule of daily public events following his bout with COVID-19 with a midday MAGA rally ahead of his Town Hall on NBC tonight. And in the process of his desperate attempt to mock his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, Trump threw us all back to that horrific day in 2015, when he made fun of Biden with an eerily similar “bit” to what he subjected Kovaleski to:

Trump was attempting to poke fun at what he felt was Joe’s wishy-washiness to raise his hand in support of “free healthcare for illegal immigrants” during a past debate. However, we all know where he first got that move.
I would say that I’m disgusted. Appalled. Infuriated. But frankly, those words don’t even begin to touch how this makes me feel.
How very sick you have to be to pull a stunt like this.
