“I was a garbage man, like Troy [his character in Fences]. You get eight hours’ worth of work, but you can do it in three. So you can go home as soon as you finish. Post office, you get three hours of work and you make it last eight. I did both. I liked being a garbage man better. But they weren’t bad jobs. People say, ‘Oh the difficulty of making a movie.’ I say, ‘Send your son to Iraq. That’s difficult.’ It’s just a movie. It’s like, relax. I don’t play that precious nonsense. Get outta here. Your son got shot in the face? That’s difficult. Making a movie is a luxury. It’s a gift. It’s an opportunity and most importantly it’s a gift. Obviously everybody here is talented enough to do that. But don’t get it twisted.”
So when Queen Meryl referenced Trump mocking the disabled reporter, I had to search that- I thought it was a mistake on his part but that he had apologized for it.
I searched the story again. I must’ve missed it before, but I am finding out now that it was a media creation. The expressive Trump was using his hands to imitate someone who is flustered and backtracking their story, or groveling. And it was not the first time during his campaign that Trump had used these hand gestures. But the fake media pushers used the reporter’s disability and freeze frame imagery to make Trump look like the bad guy. Can’t believe Meryl and some of the news organs I heard yesterday are still using that story. Never knew a smug elitist “victim” could almost shame me.
