Trump Didn’t Ignore Disabled Child

Q: Did President Donald Trump ignore a disabled child who tried to shake his hand?

A: No. A viral video clip omitted Trump’s earlier interaction with the boy.

FULL ANSWER

The headline of a July 29 story on washingtonjournal.com says: “This Video Of A Disabled Toddler Trying To Shake Trump’s Hand And Getting Ignored Will Break Your Heart.”

The story — which Facebook users flagged as potentially fake news — claims that President Donald Trump overlooked the child at a July 24 event at the White House highlighting problems with the Affordable Care Act.

But the video clip, which has received more than 250,000 views on YouTube, is misleading. It doesn’t show Trump’s earlier interaction with the young boy, who also wasn’t trying to shake the president’s hand, his mom said.

“Just a few days ago, the President gathered a number of people willing to be political props, dubbing them the ‘victims of Obamacare’ at the White House while he made a vague, rambling pitch for its repeal that was entirely devoid of any discussion of policy or the catastrophic effects that repeal would have,” the Washington Journal story says.

“When he was finished, he turned to shake the hands of those behind him — except for one child, who happened to be in a wheelchair.”

        Hillary’s face on election night was like a Christmas gift.

      J.K. Rowling got a break only cause someone had looked at an overlooked Manuscript and called attention to it. Funny how an overnight success cannot deal with someone that did not get a break like President Donald Trump. He made his own breaks , which took him along time . If she had any class she would apologize to the person she offended., but would rather stick to comments like Trump is worse than Lord Voltimort . This is why President Trump wants people who love our Country to come in and not those who cannot respect our President enough to know when to say they had made an error in judgement .

  • Bertie

    Disgusting doesn’t do justice to the shameful disingenuous politiking of the Liberal left.

    JK Rowling one of the worst offenders – still hasn’t apologised to Trump!

    • Patricia Eddy

      OF COURSE HE DIDN’T IGNORE THE LITTLE BOY. POTUS WAS VERY CONSIDERATE TOWARD THE LITTLE BOY.

    • greenlantern1

      Since when does ANYONE owe HIM an apology??

      • Bertie

        Absent manners then are you Green?
        If you fallaciously smear someone, once caught out doing such, an apology is merited, regardless.

        • greenlantern1

          Manners?
          Our ONLY, jailed, attorney-general was Nixon’s first, John Mitchell!
          Our ONLY VP, to enter a plea bargain, was Nixon’s first, Spiro Agnew!
          Our ONLY special investigator, to be fired, was Nixon’s first, Archibald Cox!
          Our ONLY president, to accept a pardon, was Nixon!
          Perfectly clear??

  • John J. Mulhall

    The LSM [Lying Sacks of (Media)] keep getting caught with their anti-President Trump propaganda… soon no one will believe them, including their ‘useful idiots’ (a name given by Stalin).

    • greenlantern1

      How come RACHEL MADDOX keeos rising in the polls while Bill O’Rielly keeps falling?

      • John J. Mulhall

        greenlantern1 – I suspect that the useful idiots are not skilled in critical thinking and they don’t consider that the LSMs just might have an agenda they want to follow. My first experience with that was Vietnam and it continued thru my time as Mayor and Councilmember in my city, but if you don’t consider ‘other voices’ and other opinions, I have found you don’t learn (that includes me).

        • greenlantern1

          Vietnam?
          Ever hear of Dien Bien Phu?
          Who was VP?

          • John J. Mulhall

            Are you asking me if I fought for the French? (Dien Bien Phu) No, I am USN vet. Who was LBJs VP? The name doesn’t come easily to mind, but I can tell you that when LBJ had his gall-bladder operation we did 3 days of ‘stand-down’ meaning only defensive patrols until he got out and personally approved the new targets. Scum of the earth. Should have let his generals and admirals conduct the war.

          • greenlantern1

            LBJ’s VP was Hubert Humphrey.
            I apologize for neither!
            Nixon was VP!
            Remember his “secret” plan to win Vietnam?
            Remember Kissinger’s promise, to North Vietnam, that it could get a better deal with Nixon than LBJ?
            Remember the BAY OF PIGS?
            Castro KNEW about it!
            Who betrayed it?
            E. Howard Hunt?
            G. Gordon Liddy?
            No wonder Nixon liked them!

      Rush Limbaugh is a LEFTY??

  • Jaron Gant Joyner

    President Trump-The News Media isn’t Going to give you a Break-But “We The People”-Don’t pay any Attention to them anymore so you just Stick with the American people-We have your “BACK”-And hope all those Liberal-Owned Medias-GO-BROKE.!!!!

    • truthseeker

      Think about what J.K. Rowling pays in Taxes in England. George Clooney stated he did not feel safe in his Mansion in England and could not wait to get back to LA . How much does the English people pay for all of the Royals who sit on their Royal Crowns .

  • gilfaethwy

    The Left has as much contempt for the truth as they have for President Trump. Anything that they can twist into fodder for their hatred, they do, however egregious or gratuitous. They will elide, omit, distort, misinterpret, misrepresent, cherry pick and baldly fabricate their propaganda, and then “report” it through their outlets misleadingly called “news sources” as if it were the whole, unvarnished, unaltered, and unchallengeable “truth”. This whole kerfuffle is a case in point…

    Ms Rowling had really better check her facts before weighing in with such unwarranted spleen– and doing so with such obvious eagerness.

    • greenlantern1

      Nixon told the truth?
      Rush Limbaugh?
      Ann Coulter?

      • gilfaethwy

        But NIxon told the truth much, even most, of the time. (He’s a complicated subject, one who had deep-seated inferiority and persecution complexes.)

        Rush Limbaugh? You may not like what he says nor the way he says it, but he doesn’t lie. Your including him shows you haven’t really thought things through– and that you have swallowed the sometimes prevarications, sometimes barefaced unmitigated lies, told by many on the Left– Schumer and Waters, Pelosi and Warren, and those one-time news outlets turned into propaganda peddlers like the NY Times, the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC and the like.

        Ann Coulter? I don’t know enough of her or her statements to judge one way or the other.

        • greenlantern1

          Still waiting for Limbaugh’s stand down cables!
          Why didn’t he show them to Trey Gowdy?
          To Trump?
          Ever read about President Abraham Lincoln?
          Did he have the FREEDOM OF SPEECH, to introduce, his SPOT RESOLUTIONS?

    • truthseeker

      If you notice in the Story of Harry Potter and how every time he saves Hogwarts, he still lives in a shared Dorm , gives up everything and has to always go back to an unhealthy environment. Funny they have no Room in that Castle for him to stay . This is what Socialism is like. It would not matter if you invented the Car, cause it would belong to the Government . She (J.K. Rowling) reminds me of Professor Snap always looking at the Dark side. Most of her money was made in the States, every time it comes on T.V. she gets a kick back . Wonder how she would feel if we called Prince Charles an Adulterer , or Prince Harry a child from another Dad ? He sure does not look like Charles with that Red Hair .

  • greenlantern1

    Did Trump mock a disabled reporter?

  • Allen Shaw

    Solve the problem. Show us the picture of President Trump shaking hands with the child. Do not ask us to believe you.

  • jim jones

    Yes, and he drowned a litter of kittens and kicked a dog. Get real!

  • Bruce

    It’s not just the liberals! It’s also Republican Never Trumpers ( list at http://www.wmd.com ) We need to get on them and Lindsy Grahm is at the top of the list!

  • jjmcl431

    if you have an upset stomach and want to throw up and feel better, speak to a liberal.
