Donald Trump ignores disabled child

Out of sight, out of mind

[Update: Another video surfaced of him greeting the child on the way in, but do scroll down to see some of the amazing disabled activists who led the health care fight!]

Here’s a video from the White House of Donald Trump greeting a group of people at the White House. As you can see, a young disabled child repeatedly reaches out to shake Trump’s hand as he moves down the row greeting everyone. Despite a repeated attempt to shake the hand of the man standing directly next to and eventually in front of him, Trump doesn’t even see the child, stepping toward the side door without ever even acknowledging him.

This is actually perfectly symbolic of how Trump views disabled citizens in general, he doesn’t see them or think of them at all. Out of sight, out of mind. He may ignore them, but disabled activists have emerged as some of the biggest heroes of all in this health care fight. National ADAPT members have been ignored, mocked, berated and arrested, but they refused to give up.

These protests were organized by National ADAPT, a national grass-roots community that organizes disability rights activists to engage in nonviolent direct action, including civil disobedience, to assure the civil and human rights of people with disabilities to live in freedom.

Blogger Angry Asian Man points to an early video showing Donald Trump greeting the child in the wheelchair, but points out he ignored the two Asian girls while shaking hands with everyone else.
