Countless controversial stories continue to come out about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his rather sordid past. Earlier this week it was the Access Hollywood audio recording from 2005 when Trump boasted about being a sexual predator. Since then, more and more women have been coming forward with stories of their own sexual assaults by Trump.
As First Lady Michelle Obama so eloquently said in her speech on Thursday, Trump’s words and actions have shaken all of us to our core.
Another disgraceful story has surfaced about Trump being insulting — which unfortunately isn’t at all shocking. This time, his hurtful words were directed towards Oscar-winning actress and former Celebrity Apprentice contestant Marlee Matlin who happens to be deaf.
The Daily Beast reported that, according to three different longtime Celebrity Apprentice staff members, Trump made a habit of insulting, mimicking, and referring to Matlin as mentally handicapped, just because she was deaf.
Due to nondisclosure agreements, the sources requested to remain anonymous.
He even wrote a note while sitting at the boardroom table that read, “Marlee, is she retarded?”
After hearing about The Daily Beast’s report, Matlin issued a statement on Twitter, because she isn’t going to just let him get away with being disrespectful and intolerant.
She continued on, making her point eloquently and beautifully.
Voting on November 8th is the only way to make all of this craziness stop.
