MYRTLE BEACH, SC - While most Americans were preparing to stuff their mouths with turkey, presidential hopeful Donald Trump, was stuffing his with something else...namely, his foot!

Trumpisms are not in short supply on the campaign trail, and no topic is off-limits. But, some are saying, this time....The Donald has gone too far by mocking a reporter's disability.

"Now the poor guy, you gotta see him (Trump jerks his arms and speaks in a funny voice) aaahhhh, I don't know what I said, ahhhhh I don't remember."

New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski's condition causes contortions in his limbs. Trump's been citing a story the reporter wrote for the Washington Post in 2001 that referred to thousands of people allegedly seen celebrating the 9/11 attacks. Kovaleski disputes Trump's claims.

After the backlash over Trump's impersonation, Trump says he's owed an apology because he doesn't know the reporter, or "what he looks like or his level of intelligence. I don`t know if he's J.J. Watt or Muhammad Ali...."

One thing we've seen, Donald Trump has trouble keeping his feelings to himself and sometimes what he says is offensive. Like, linking undocumented Mexican immigrants to violent crime.

"They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

If Trump is looking for a campaign theme song, he might want to consider Britney Spears, "Oops I Did It Again."
