14. His imitation of the disabled reporter is what sticks in my mind.

It was the most vicious, crass and disrespectful spectacle I have EVER witnessed from a politician. If a child in elementary school did the same thing, s/he would have been sternly disciplined. Parents would have been called, and if the imitation were in reaction to another child, like Rump's was, there might have been in or out school suspension. As someone who has worked with children with disabilities for 35 years, it was almost unbelievable for me to watch. And yet he got the Republican nomination for president!

They should have turned away when he started barking his birther crap years ago... think Aug 2016 #1
