Trump publicly mocked disabled New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski at a campaign event in South Carolina in November 2015.  Kovaleski has arthrogryposis, a congenital condition that limits joint movement and causes joints to curve.  Trump stated “poor guy”, “you gotta see this guy”, and then proceeded to physically mock Kovaleski’s appearance.
