Just when I think Donald Trump can’t get any worse…he does.
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid chastised Trump on Friday for joking about an accident that blinded Reid in one eye. Reid said, “Donald Trump can make fun of the injury that crushed the side of my face and took the sight in my right eye all he wants — I’ve dealt with tougher opponents than him.”
Reid is a fierce critic of Trump’s, and was referring to remarks that Trump made in an interview with The Washington Post that was posted Thursday night.
The Post reporter told Trump that Reid had said that Trump is “not slim and trim”, and Trump responded, “Harry Reid? I think he should go back and start working out again with his rubber work-out pieces.”
Reid was exercising with a rubber resistance band in his bathroom on New Year’s Day 2015 when the band broke or slipped from his hands, causing him to spin around and strike his face on a cabinet. Reid lost vision in his right eye and suffered a concussion, broken orbital bones, and a broken rib.
Reid said, “I may not be able to see out of my right eye, but with my good eye, I can see that Trump is a man who inherited his money and spent his entire life pretending like he earned it,. In Searchlight (Nevada), we learned a thing or two about hard work that Trump may not have learned at his boarding school.”
Trump made his remarks the same day that Reid took to the Senate floor to blast Trump as “a spoiled brat” and “a human leech who will bleed the country.”
Mocking a disabled reporter…mocking a blind Senator…what’s next???
