Trig Palin was shamed. Where was the media?

Trigger Warning:
You'll rage against the machine.
Oh my, it seems Donald Trump has once again offended, well, everyone.  Today he's in trouble for a campaign event Tuesday night where he seemed to mock a disabled reporter.  Let's take a look at the video:
Full disclosure, I chuckled a little bit at the joke.  Of course I've been accused of being a sick weirdo by many people.

You know who isn't laughing?  The Mainstream Media, and pretty much everyone on the left.  They are absolutely fit to be tied that the Donald would dare to criticize someone's physical appearance.  The New York Times issued a statement rebuking Donald Trump.  Frances Ryan, a disabled journalist over at the Guardian, penned an op-ed both decrying Trump and lamenting how bad treatment of the disabled has become common place.  CBS This Morning had a report on the whole incident:
Here's the thing, though.  I remember the 2008 election when an accomplished, yet unpolished governor from Alaska agreed to be John McCain's running mate.  This governor, Sarah Palin, has a son with Down Syndrome named Trig.  This child has been subject to merciless attacks on his disability simply because his mother is hated by the Left.  Andrew Sullivan, you may recall, questioned whether Trig was actually Palin's son.  Liberal website Wonkette published a particularly vile attack on Trig, and retracted it only when public outcry forced them to.  

And who could forget Louis C.K.'s disgusting comments:

Louis C.K.'s show, Louie, is still going strong, by the way, and has been picked up for a sixth season.

Here's Bill Maher using Trig to score a dig at Fox News:

Bill Maher, of course, is still just as strong as ever on his HBO show Real Time with Bill Maher.

Now I will give credit where credit is due.  I've taken the piss out of Salon before, but they did run a pretty exhaustive piece debunking Trig trutherism.

So now everyone's pissed off at Trump because he made fun of a disabled reporter.  I'd be very interested in knowing what these people thought about the whole Trig situation...
