“Donald Trump denied mocking a reporter’s physical disability — insisting Thursday he has no idea what the journalist looks like, while lashing out at the “financially failing and totally biased” New York Times for calling him out.
“I have no idea who this reporter, Serge Kovalski is, what he looks like or his level of intelligence,” Trump said in a statement Thursday, misspelling the maligned reporter’s last name. “I don’t know if he is J.J. Watt or Muhammad Ali in his prime — or somebody of less athletic or physical ability.”
