I'm not sure how pointing out a person's history of giving the middle finger to the law is "partisan". He was busted in the 1970's for race-based housing discrimination. Not just accused - busted. Then in the 80's we learn he orders people to intentionally break the law, and this time it's a law designed to assist disabled people. In the 90's, him and his daddy are busted for casino fraud. Hiring undocumented workers. His wife wins a divorce on "cruel and inhumane" treatment. The 2000's, lather, rinse, repeat. The 2010's - Trump University fraud, him bragging about sexually assaulting women ("GRAB 'EM BY THE P***Y!"), campaign finance fraud for which there have been guilty pleas and convictions, the list goes on.

 

Not sure how any of that can be considered "partisan" when all it is, is a recap of the indisputable legal record.

 

 


Another strange comparison - construction directions to an engineer and a sexual assault. Strange, very strange.

There is quite a junk box of "Oh how I hate Trump" out there for the petty to rummage around in.

 

This from a claim of something almost 40 years ago. What would cause Barbara Res to suddenly remember this and go public?


Chances are Barbara Res never forgot this incident. Just like women who are sexually assaulted at work, or where ever (#MeToo movement) never forget what they experienced. And just like the #MeToo women, there comes a time when it's impossible for them to keep their mouths shut about it anymore. And, as is typical for the MAGATS, they blame the messenger.

 

This seems to be a pattern for Trump. Refused to comply with the law for those with a disability, and then mocks a disabled reporter on the presidential campaign trail. Guess nothing's changed in those 40 years concerning Trump's hatred for disabled people.

 

 


I have never been raped but I would think it would be more traumatic then being told what buttons to put in an elevator.


Who said it had to be traumatic for Res? I would certainly remember someone insisting that I break the law, particularly a law designed to assist disabled people.

 

 


And say nothing about it for 35 years and suddenly - SHAZZAAAM!!!! Some people really hold a grudge.

 

And comparing the memory of that to getting raped. Sounds like a bit much.

Everyday, the Media just brings more wacky things Trump has gotten away with to date. I wish the reports Where Fake. Thank goodness we have the media, not all of us believe anything Tweeted  by Trump. Trump didn't even know what Braille was, just nuts.

Yep, and given Trump's history of giving the middle finger to the laws that he's now president of the country that enacted them, Res' op-ed really doesn't require a giant leap to understand his repeated behavior.

 

This isn't the first time Res has blown the whistle on Trump's behavior, be it criminal or amoral. She's even admitted lying to defend him, so that must a requirement in order to work for him, right Michael Cohen? What's most interesting to point out, is that Trump has never said that anything Res has ever stated is untrue - and this is a guy who will rant in a tweet storm about crowd size for crying out loud.

Wasn't the topic about Braille in the Trump Tower, but instead of discussing that you are making it about Trump?  Is there documentation about the topic, or is it just the word of someone years later?  And then you go into a laundry list of things about him. 

 

In my post I asked if there is Braille lettering on the elevators or not?  You didn't answer that instead went off onto a rant.  I just want to know the answer to my question.


Note that the title of the topic includes "trump":  " Trump No Braille on Trump Tower Elevators".  So you see, the topic is about trump, it's about him ordering that braille is left off of the elevator controls.  It doesn't matter if braille ended up being installed, the point is that he ordered it not to be. It speaks volumes about the ignorance, bias, and bigotry of the guy you support and defend at every turn.

 

It's amazing the lengths that trump supporters will go to in trying to defend the bigotry, ignorance, and immorality of trump.


Man learns from history that man learns nothing from history.

No one who followed Republican policy for more than a couple weeks would have problems understanding Der Trumper's failure to provide the slightest consideration to blind poor people.

 

Rich blind people will have someone with them to push the right buttons, poor blind people have no business cluttering up anything with Der Trumper's name on it, which pretty well sums up GOPers attitude to aide to the disabled.

 

As for cash transactions, the rest of the world has different size bills for different denominations and since the 1960's the Dutch have printed the denomination in braille on their currency. The size difference in the bills is determined by what a blind person can distinguish by touch alone. Bad news for Republicans - they wouldnt be able to cheat the blind guy selling newspapers anymore.

Ok, you got your partisan jab in, now has anyone substantiated that her comments is correct, or were they made for some other reason? 

 

Did she report them to building inspectors?  Why is she just revealing this now instead of years ago?  Too many questions about such information being revealed now instead of when it happened.

 

Finally, was Trump's orders followed, or does the elevators have the Braille signs up?

That has nothing to do with it being the law that braille is used in the elevators, even in trump's buildings. trump isn't above the law, prior to him becoming president nor now.


So Trump objected...but have you checked to see if Braille was used in the end?  Or is it that you just want to continue the posts in the same line?  All I have seen is that he had objected.


"Get rid of it."
