ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Tuesday (November 24) appears to physically mock the disability of a reporter who suffers from a chronic muscular disease that affects his arm movement. Trump, while at a campaign stop in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, was discussing an article written by former Washington Post reporter Serge Kovaleski about the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. The article has been at the center of attention of comments by Trump saying that Muslims in New Jersey had celebrated the attacks. "A nice reporter. Now, the poor guy, you gotta see this guy. 'Oh, I don't know what I said, I don't remember,'" Trump said while waving and bending his arms into crooked positions. Kovaleski is a Pulitzer Prize winning reporter who now works for the New York Times. The times released a statement saying that Trump's comments were "outrageous" and his comments have drawn negative reaction in various news outlets.
