Former Apprentice contestant Marlee Matlin responded to reports that Republican nominee referred to her as “retarded” in the best way possible. The deaf actress spoke out on Twitter, condemning Trump for his ableist slurs and standing up for the millions of people around the world who suffer from disabilities and are stigmatized by crude brutes like Trump for the way they were born.
This is, of course, not the first time that Donald Trump has mocked the disabled. In a now notorious incident, Trump mocked a disabled Washington Post reporter, Serge Kovaleski, for calling out Trump’s false accusations that he had seen “thousands of Muslim celebrating the Twin Tower attacks on the rooftops of New Jersey.”
There isn’t a section of the American people – apart from racist white males – who haven’t been insulted by Donald Trump. The man is a walking vat of toxic hatred, and he doesn’t deserve to be anywhere near the White House.
