How revolting

Maybe these cretins have finally been given enough rope. In Lewandowski's defense, there are no doubt plenty of Trump supporters who want a final solution for the disabled.

They are rude and crude, but nothing will change, until the electorate does something.

In Lewandowski's defense,

WRONG! There is NO defense for his words, none! To even consider it is wrong!

13 ( +17 / -4 )

To be fair, I think he would've had the same response if the child wasn't disabled. It doesn't seem like he was mocking the disabled specifically. He was simply being flippant and callous about a terrible situation, which is plenty bad, don't get me wrong.

Come on, do you seriously think so? Although I agree that there are probably not many humanists among Trump supporters, I honestly don't think the vast majority have any eugenic tendencies. A tad harsh imo.

The first story I saw on this reported his comment as "Womp Womp." Not sure which is more infuriating.

When will the staunch Trump defenders (Black, Bass, et al) jump on here with some lame spin-terpretation? What is the acceptable sarcastic aside when discussing crying imprisoned Down Syndrome children, eh proud neocons?

I talk about this subject on another article, but Trump supporters don't seem to have a problem with it.

The cup holding empathy seems to be dry in the Trump camp/ Palace. Even the golf cups are dry.

I thought this was going to be about the misfiring Poland striker Robert Lewandowski. Instead it's just another grotesque Trump staffer exposing his true nature.

I honestly don't think the vast majority have any eugenic tendencies. A tad harsh imo.

Not for a moment is it harsh. Look around the internet and look on here: I've seen posters beside themselves with glee at terrorist bombings in Europe, gloating at the dead children as the blood was still flowing. The mods instantly removed the comments, but they were there. You're being naive. They don't care about anyone who isn't like themselves.

Lewandowski on girl with Down syndrome: 'Wah wah'

I'm not surprised

Yep honorably served in the US military. WIth immigrants who served honorably as well and filed paperwork to become citizens. Also served with dishonest immigrants who didnt want to pay US taxes on their pay as citizens. So they served their time and then took their 20 year pensions back to their home country, then had their children enlist to start the process all over again.

There is a process for legal immigration use it. What kind of parent takes their disabled kid and sneaks them into another country, then expects that country to pay all the medical costs?

-16 ( +4 / -20 )

@PT, good catch--serving his country could mean bolstering foreign army psy-ops for all we know. Well, he might be in line for a medal for his frantic copy and pasting about the benign etymology of "Womp Womp" he is busy with today. I'll be he knows, or can be taught, a lot more sarcastic noises for commenting on the disabled.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

The Branch Donaldians cheer this on. Let us not forget, Trump himself mocked a disabled reporter. Very sad that most Republicans (not all) are full of so much hate that they follow this cult leader.

13 ( +14 / -1 )

I don’t think there is an official spelling for the womp-womp sound effect.

Basically it looks like this Lewandicantspellhname was as cold as we would expect from someone who supports separating Down’s syndrome kids from their parents.

@Blacklabel, the father of the child in this story is a legal US resident and lives an hour down the road from where the kid is being imprisoned. Probably dozens of cases like that showing this tough guy prison camp charade is totally unnecessary nonsense. It's just Trump/Sessions copying tactics from their idol Joe Arpaio (descendant of illegals, just like the ones saving your bacon in the army).

@blackl which is a huge difference.

If your intent in defending this and caging children is to score own goals for the Trump team, you're succeeding.

But there is a spelling. An a phrase. And its the sound when you lose on the gameshow "The Price is Right". Google Price is Right Womp and you get the "losing horn" sound video on Youtube.

Its generally a sound of "epic failure*, which described the point of the other person perfectly, it was nothing to do about the

The cesspool of people in the Trump circle is a distillation of evil.

Bullies, all of them.

Does Corey have a mother? Is she proud tonight?

I’d take a hundred illiterate, penniless refugees in, and deport Corey in a heartbeat.

A lowlife, just like the orange swamp creature he worked for. Mocking people with disabilities or life-threatening illnesses appears to be inherent in those working for this disgrace of an administration.

13 ( +13 / -0 )

So what does that make a parent who drags a disabled child from from El Salvador or Guatemala, through safe Mexico, all the way to the US border just to get the child separated from them and detained. While being told and knowing is what would happen, What kind of a parent and what kind of a person would so such a thing?

Mocking people with disabilities or life-threatening illnesses appears to be inherent in those working for this disgrace of an administration.

We have video of Trump himself mocking a disabled reporter by mimicking his disability, so mocking the disabled has already been approved as acceptable by the Republican party.

Disgusting really.

Then we could research Pat Sajak and Alex Trebek every time there is blatantly boorish sarcasm. Priceless.

You're being naive. They don't care about anyone who isn't like themselves.

Possibly. Perhaps I got sidetracked by jcapan's reference to nazi's 'final solution'.

With all due respect to Trump supporters, many/most of them do not represent nor belong to what I would call a racial/social/intellectual/genetic elite. Would go even further, a fair few would probably have been targeted pretty early by nazi's eugenics program (due to cognitive and/or physical congenital disabilities). They're what Hilary called (wrongly imo) 'deplorables'.

This is why I think most Trump supporters wouldn't target weak/disabled ppl (unless they aren't 'true' Americans) as they themselves are 'weak' I.e. 'they are like themselves' (unlike Lewandowski who's part of a political/social elite).

I just saw the clip... even though he said 'wah wah' (as in the trumpet with hand over the end going "wah wah waaah..."), I would equate that with a very sarcastic "my heart bleeds".

Why is this odious guttersnipe even allowed air time? He's utterly vile.

If America isn't going to accept the illegals then deport them... but never separate kids from their parents... that's just evil. Why would anyone even think was a good policy?

This from the BBC:

Mr Trump has blamed Democrats for the policy, saying "we have to break up the families" because of a law that "Democrats gave us".

It is unclear what law he is referring to, but no law has been passed by the US Congress that mandates that migrant families be separated.

Fact-checkers say that the only thing that has changed is the Justice Department's decision to criminally prosecute parents for a first-time border crossing offence. Because their children are not charged with a crime, they are not permitted to be jailed together.

These callous cretins will be not be wah wah-ing when the November Midterms come around, but blubbering into their beer. The decent folk of America can instead then enjoy a nice slice of cold schadenfreude with their beer.

9 ( +9 / -0 )

Lewandowski should have refrained from the wah, wah, but he was not making fun of the child's disability, he was trying to express his frustration with all these parents trying to bring their kids and themselves into the U.S. illegally. If we can ever get the wall built, we can prevent a lot of these cases of family separation at the border.

-10 ( +2 / -12 )

These callous cretins will be not be wah wah-ing when the November Midterms come around, but blubbering into their beer.

Don’t bet on that, that gap has been closing, it’s not a sure win by any stretch of the means. Why do you think the Dems are in panic mode? The Russian hoax is slowly coming to an end, Stormy is nowhere to be found, virtually everything the left tried to get Trump on, every single lie they weaved, came crashing down, he didn’t take us to Nuclear war, we survived the laughable browbeating of our European allies, survived the NK summit, I could go on, but the Democrats have a real problem, their lead shrank, they have about a 7 point lead and for a Democrat in this environment with polls this close is very nerve racking for the Dems, that means they are within the error of margin. Not good. Also, what will they run on? What’s their message? Impeach Trump? Ok, so let’s say the Democrats retake the house, and then they impeach the president, then what? The Senate is still Republican. Roadblock!

The decent folk of America can instead then enjoy a nice slice of cold schadenfreude with their beer.

Which Americans? The Red ones or the Blue ones?

This is how the 3rd Reich began, de-humanizing everyone who isn't part of the core fascist in-group.

Keep watch over the people who can't bring themselves to condemn this repulsive behavior. If they can't see the humanity in a kid with Down's Syndrome, they won't be able to see the humanity in you when the state comes to drag you away.

Having seen it, I'm inclined to agree. I didn't get the impression his 'comment' was in regards to the kid having a disability. That said:

he was trying to express his frustration with all these parents trying to bring their kids and themselves into the U.S.

That seems like a nice way to say it. It pretty douchey though. These are real people he's talking about, and his 'comment' makes extreme light of the plight of these people.

You have more confidence than I. The far-right is mobilized, and they vote like mad. The right already has a history of doing better in the midterms, and Trump is super popular among his base right now. I'm thinking it's more likely that the Republicans will come out ahead in the upcoming election. Their people are more fired up than ever.

And he said it on Fox News. Anybody who saw the clip of it on TV probably also noticed that the Fox News Hostess did nothing to rebuke Lewandowski for saying it. She should have, but she didn't.

I have to disagree. A reporter's position is to report, which means getting the news. They are not there to be the moral judge. A good reporter would question him on doing it, and get more insight into it, but I'm not thinking of any situations right now where I feel a reporter should be rebuking anyone.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

While I find the whole situation with what's happening at the border pretty reprehensible, I think the title of this thread is inflammatory. The 'comment', and the Down's Syndrome were to unrelated things that the thread title has related to each other. Others have said the same in the thread. This is the type of thing that gets extremists screaming 'fake news', which brings down trust in the media. For that reason, it's important that news writers ensure that the title of the news article accurately matches the content of the article. Otherwise people scream 'click bait' and again, trust in the media gets brought down.

So what does that make a parent who drags a disabled child from from El Salvador or Guatemala, through safe Mexico, all the way to the US border just to get the child separated from them and detained.

You are conflating the issue and you are making an apples to oranges comparison, it has nothing to do with the kids. I think would feel bad if the kids were held in appalling unlivable conditions, but that’s not what is happening here.

It’s all the same, you break the law, you can’t take your kids if you get locked up.

Keep watch over the people who can't bring themselves to condemn this repulsive behavior.

So it’s not abusive to allow a child to wander through a hot desert unaccompanied?

If they can't see the humanity in a kid with Down's Syndrome, they won't be able to see the humanity in you when the state comes to drag you away.

Are you serious????

-8 ( +3 / -11 )

Are you serious????

Yes, are the kids criminals? A three-year-old? No? But the parents are and they are going to prison for a long long time under the Trump's rule. But these little kids are not. And with their parents in prison (for years and years) it means the US will have more little citizens to feed and give medical care to. Also, free schooling. All on the tax payer's dime. Yes, seriously!

In Lewandowski's defense, there are no doubt plenty of Trump supporters who want a final solution for the disabled.

A “final solution” will not be necessary if preventive steps are taken re Downs Syndrome in the manner Iceland is handling it. People with Downs are just that: people. In uturo there are no they, just it unless I am mistaken.

Ok, so now you think, these kids are off to the final solution?

The final American solution will be these kids become American citizens. Trump followers think the parents of these kids are very very bad rapist criminal child pedophile abusers and don't deserve to keep their children. OK, then. So these kids will just go through the US government system and be fast tracked to their citizenship- thanks Trump. More non-white kids become Americans. Then what happens to the parents?

No Americans get separated from their children for committing a bureaucratic misdemeanor.

This type of comment is very unhelpful. The left screaming ‘fascist’ or talking about the Third Reich runs the language down and makes the words lose their impact, Oh, look, the shrill lefties are talking about final solutions and exterminating the disabled again. One day a real exterminationist scumbag might come on the scene and shrug off these attacks as more squealing from the usual suspects. It does the sensible people on the left a real disservice.

It reminds me of politicians talking about every election as the most important ever.

If that were the law, then they would if that were the case.

The Holocaust was legal under German law too.

Yes, that was Germany back then, but this is America and all the legal 3rd world new citizens are mostly from countries where people are dark skinned, so we’re going to round them up as well or do they get a pass because they’re legal?

This is a weird one, because I fully agree with you that going overboard on the left doesn't help anything. But on the other side I actually think very often that what we are seeing is probably a very similar progression to how things moved forward in Germany pre-WWII. We aren't there yet, and I really really hope we never end up there, But I'd be lying if I said I didn't see any similarities from what I know to what I am seeing.

What’s your. Definition of evil? For me, evil is watching grieving Americans who’s loved ones were killed because of our lax immigration laws and open borders, that our politicians don’t care, rather they care more abou either cheap labor or that they hope that giving free entitlements will encourage them to vote. I think it’s evil when our politicians spin lies on a sensitive issue they know they have no merit in commenting at and would rather lie in order to get their base going by using a tragedy to get a political advantage.

I find that evil.

If they're unwilling to condemn evil when the state commits it against someone else, they'll be unwilling to condemn evil when the state commits it against you.

What’s your. Definition of evil?

Evil is harming someone who didn't do harm to you, including harming a child because you don't like their ethnic group.

For me, evil is watching grieving Americans who’s loved ones were killed because of our lax immigration laws and open borders, 

And so you choose to respond by harming children who have done nothing wrong to anyone, just because you choose not to see the difference between a single adult immigrant who did harm and a child who just happens to have the same legal status.

That is one of the ways I define evil. If you cannot target retribution against the actual person who did the wrong, then you aren't even up to the level of moral development Hammurabi proposed almost 4000 years ago, not to mention all the developments in moral philosophy that have come since then.

Child psychologists consistently agree that forcibly separating children from their parents at a young age is deeply traumatic, and can affect them for the rest of their lives.

The same can be said when the child is called to do something in front of the class, or the child gets embarrassed or sexually assaulted which happens a lot to these kids making the journey on the way to the States, physical assault, verbal assault, all can be deeply traumatic and many have gone through this. Again, what’s your point?

Trump is building concentration camps for children as young as 3 months old.

Trump is not building anything and once the faculty is up and running, that’s better than being in the hot desert, I care, so I don’t want them to be out there where they can get hurt, at least in a detention center they’ll be fine and can play and use WiFi.

No, it can't.

 sexually assaulted 

It's not government policy to sexually assault kids (as far as we know, at least.). It is government policy to traumatize children by forcibly taking them from their parents for no good reason. It is strange that you try to defend an evil the Trump Regime is doing by comparing it to another evil no one is doing or calling for.

Again, what’s your point?

That Trump's policy of forcibly abducting minority children from parents who have merely committed a misdemeanor (if that - some parents whose children have been stolen have been legal assylum-seekers) is evil.

What's your point?

Trump is not building anything and once the faculty is up and running

I'll just quote that demonstration of doublethink for the record and call this conversation to a close. Nothing of value can be found debating with people who are unwilling to confront evil.

3 ( +8 / -5 )

No, it can't.

Yes, it can and it does, kids that were caught up in wars, forced into slave labor or suicide bombers, I could go on and on, there are many, many traumatic situations that children have to go through, not only this particular incident.

It's not government policy to sexually assault kids (as far as we know, at least.). It is government policy to traumatize children by forcibly taking them from their parents for no good reason.

So why don’t you feel the same about the thousands of American kids that have to endure the same thing?

It is strange that you try to defend an evil the Trump Regime is doing by comparing it to another evil no one is doing or calling for.

I think it’s strange as well as sad that liberals are trying to defend the criminal acts of parents pushing them to enter a sovereign nation unattended and a minor illegally.

That Trump's policy of forcibly abducting minority children from parents who have merely committed a misdemeanor (if that - some parents whose children have been stolen have been legal assylum-seekers) is evil.

I understand, but the law is the law, if I try to enter China right now with my kids, they’re not going to put us in a detention center together. I get your point, it’s sad, but they’re being cared for and at least they don’t have to worry about being in the unforgiving heat, many can talk to their parents and overall, they are in a much better position like this.

I'll just quote that demonstration of doublethink for the record and call this conversation to a close. Nothing of value can be found debating with people who are unwilling to confront evil

That depends on what your definition of evil is.

I made my point perfectly clear.

And it's perfectly clear that these kids will become Americans. The parents love their children so much they push them over the border. The kids are taken from their parents to become American citizens. All on Trump. And more parents will hear what Trump is doing so they will keep coming and keep coming and keep coming. This never happened under Obama. The last time this kind of amnesty happened was with Reagan. 3M green card amnesty.

When another Fox panelist mentioned that story, Lewandowski responded with "Wah wah."

Separating Down’s syndrome children from their criminal parents- bad. Aborting them because they have Down’s syndrome - who cares right?

I’m tired of the media’s collectivist one dimensional outrage. It is so transparently fake. Children of criminals are “torn from their mothers arms” every day in every country on Earth. If a parent cannot be placed in custody because there are children the criminal justice system would completely break down. This only seems to be a problem because Trump can be associated with it. It is sad for the innocent children but it is the wrongdoing parents fault - not society’s. Get over it people.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am pleased to introduce you to the Republicans Party. They stand for:

Torture of enemy combatants.

Separating kids from their parents at the border.

Drug tests for the poor who apply for food assistance.

Viciously racist rhetoric from their president.

Mass incarceration.

Cutting back on medical care for the poor.

Ending asylum for those fleeing violence in their home countries.

Police brutality in poor neighborhoods.

By “support” I mean that they either actively support these things or else they’re happy to let them continue without any criticism. This is the fundamental human cruelty and venom at the heart of the contemporary GOP.

This isn’t new. I've been saying this for nearly two decades. If you were a country club Republican, it was possible to squint and pretend otherwise. No more. The Republican party is the party of Donald Trump. Lock, stock and two crude and un-American smoking barrels.

So, conservative, now it’s time for you to chose: Whose side are you on?

Separating Down’s syndrome children from their criminal parents- bad. Aborting them because they have Down’s syndrome - who cares right?

"But, but whaddabout...."

The man won because millions of Americans were tired of being neglected, tired of our borders open to allow everyone and everything in

Kind of. But you've got the cause and action backwards here. Trump convinced millions of Americans that they needed to be afraid because he claimed the borders were open to allow everyone and everything in. He chose this issue to push, and drove people into a frenzy in his campaigns. It was very much like you see preachers doing in churches - and a cross referencing of the bible belt and Trump supporters finds a strong correlation. His followers fell for the words from his silver tongue, then they retroactively rewrote the way they portray the story, to make it sound like they always thought this was as big an issue as they portray it to be now.

America has never had open borders whatever Trump and his supporters say. There's no border wall between Canada and America.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Left has hearby declared that pointing out political hypocrisy, so popular during the Obama administration, is now no longer allowed. T

That's silly. You can do it all you want. And I can point out how ridiculous it is all I want.

The ironic thing here is that you took my criticism to be me saying you're not allowed to speak, not realizing that would mean that your criticism of my comment would be you saying I'm not allowed to speak. You are guilty of the exact behavior which you are complaining about.

Anyways, every time you guys try to excuse behavior based on some perceived hypocrisy, you are trying to use the 'two wrongs make a right' logical fallacy, which most of us had debunked by our mothers when we were five or six years old.

The first story I saw on this reported his comment as "Womp Womp." Not sure which is more infuriating.

Watching the video, it's pretty clear he's saying "wah wah", an exagerated sobbing noise, mocking the other person's sad story.

I'm not sure why everybody was reporting it as "womp womp", which is more like the sad trombone sound.

Of course, either one proves what an uncaring, heartless, and mean piece of crap he is. But, Trump's entire administration and campaign is filled with these people. So, no real surprise.

And, three million more Americans voted for his opponent.

Have the asylum seekers build it as a condition for being considered.

No that is exactly what I wasn’t saying. You were trying to avoid discussion of the other side of the issue by using the Left’s now popular “whataboutism” debate ender. That’s not an effective debate tactic it’s just lazy.

Of course Lewandowski was attacked by the Left and establishment Republicans for his opposition to open borders. The Left want more Socialist voters and businesses want the cheap under paid labor. The law as written and as is the norm for most all other countries in the world do not allow the free flow of citizens across borders. When that happens the citizens of each country lose control of their governments, economies, and cultures. America is well along this path. Socialists apparently are against the idea of a nation state at all. To me, this is a recipe for political and social chaos - which is very evident in the US already. The chaos won’t get better when Trump is no longer in office. There will just be another Left or Right wing version of him that will come along next.
