Donald Trump drinking water with two hands and walking down a ramp has people creating “One Hand Drinking Water” challenges, creating a trending Twitter hashtag regarding adult diapers, and making fun of him for walking a ramp. While being concerned about his health and whether he’s lying about it or not is fine, but to make fun of him by creating challenges and otherwise is ableism that doesn’t actually hurt Donald Trump (because he isn’t going to see it and it won’t affect HIM), but it hurts disabled people who do use two hands to drink or a ramp to walk (or ride) on.

This ableism comes from Liberals, Democrats, and Progressives who claim to be allies for disabled people, and even criticized Donald Trump for supposedly mocking Serge Kovaleski, a disabled reporter. The excuse “it’s about Trump, not disabled people” doesn’t work because when you mock disability at all, you are mocking disabled people and partaking in ableism.
