That is fantastic . . . absolutely tremendous. Actually made me laugh out loud . . .
I think I had it covered when I said "in this context I was not mocking the disabled in any way" but you somehow see fit to tell me I should still apologise, using my perhaps clumsy use of one word in same post as the sentence that followed referring to possibly the most offensive man in history.
I am perhaps the first to attack Trump on here but it's because I care about all people generally (so must be Trump's polar opposite - and you can tell I'm truthful as have no need to say 'nobody cares more than me, believe me'), especially disabled, homeless, and any minorities that are discriminated against (more than ever now given recent events) so I will say it was bad judgement, but I am not going to scrutinise every single thing I say before posting in future because nobody is going to please everyone all of the time with choice of words and I'm not in the habit of picking the posts of others apart either.
But it was the tiniest most insignificant oversight compared to the mocking of disabled reporter - I caught a clip of it again on a tweet earlier, and it's even shocking without sound . . . and I read that his remaining 'followers' are choosing not to listen generally at the moment given what's going on and some are even saying he may not even come back into the country after his trip - to avoid prosecution (depending on what comes out) or may not be allowed back in as a criminal!
No-one could make it up . . . and I will happily mock him relentlessly as he brings it all on himself by being a vile, mere husk of a human who deserves everything he gets, and the devil's in the detail - when he won't even take a couple of seconds to look up words he can't spell cos he just doesn't care about that either . . .
"How does it go? counsil, councell, cownsell, cown, no, must be coun, then sell, or cil, cell, sil . . .dumdedum, trump goood, mmmm, donuts . . ."
It would have been a lot easier - and far more respectful - if you had just accepted your mis-use of the word "mongs" had caused offence, apologised for unintentionally doing so and moved on.
Instead you decline to do so and, miraculously, turn it instead into an attack on Trump's spelling ability. And, unbelievably, say that the fact that I pointed out that you had caused such offence actually made you laugh out loud(!)
It is a response that, if it had come from a certain gentleman across the Atlantic, would no doubt have led to further outrage.
Whether "in this context" you were "not mocking the disabled in any way" does not alter the derivation, and therefore the inappropriateness, of the word "mong" and one would have hoped that you would have been fully aware of that and respect those to whom - for good reason - it causes offence.
