After much of the outright obnoxious behavior of Donald Trump towards a reporter with a disability, there has been, quite rightfully, anger from the disability community. I say anger because rage, disgust, fury, etc. will quickly move me to extreme language…and that’s not hyperbole. It would also seem the rest of the country isn’t particularly fond of “Presidential-hopeful Trump’s” picking on a person with a disability. In response, some enterprising person crafted the meme below. And…I LOVE IT.
Image: Photo of Donald Trump book cover with photographs of Trump and text that says, “Crippled America: how to make America great again.” Coupled with book cover style photograph of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s text saying, “Crip Led America how FDR’s new deal made America great in the first place.”
If anyone knows the original author of this meme, please let me know.
And although I tend to steer clear of the political or at least represent multiple perspectives, this is one of those times where I have a hard time doing so, and frankly there IS no other side to such bullying.
