Sarah Huckabee Sanders apologizes for mocking Joe Biden's story about helping kids with stuttersThere is apparently a not-insignificant number of people who are both so interested in the 2020 Democratic race they spent the Thursday night before Christmas watching a three-hour debate on TV — and also don't know that former Vice President Joe Biden, the longtime frontrunner, had a stutter, even after a much-discussed recent article about it in The Atlantic. That list includes former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.Biden said in Thursday's debate that he has a long list of people he or his wife call every month to check in on, using as an example a kid who has sought his advice on how to overcome a stutter. He illustrated this by stuttering.Sanders tweeted, then deleted, a textual representation of a stutter expressing her confusion about "what Biden is talking about."> pic.twitter.com/HRZicdTk0P> > — Gillian Brockell (@gbrockell) December 20, 2019Before Sanders deleted the tweet, Biden responded, explaining that he's "worked my whole life to overcome a stutter" and is honored "to mentor kids who have experienced the same." Sanders replied that she "actually didn't know that about you," apologized, and said she "should have made my point respectfully."> I actually didn’t know that about you and that is commendable. I apologize and should have made my point respectfully. t.co/fbmVAqDoWI> > — Sarah Huckabee Sanders (@SarahHuckabee) December 20, 2019It is nice to see people apologize when they make a mistake. It's also unclear what her "point" was, after you strip away the mockery.More stories from theweek.com George Conway has a savage new nickname for post-impeachment Trump Christianity Today's editorial has sparked a family fight about Billy Graham and Trump Trump is now attacking Christianity Today — and its editor is doubling down

Sarah Sanders Apologizes to Joe Biden After Mocking Him for Stuttering at Democratic Debate

Sarah Sanders Apologizes to Joe Biden After Mocking Him for Stuttering at Democratic DebateFormer White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took to Twitter on Thursday night to mock former Vice President Joe Biden for emulating a stutter during the Democratic presidential debate. Biden, who grew up with a speech impediment that he has admittedly spent his whole life overcoming, recalled how a little kid had come up to him saying “I can’t talk,” mimicking the child’s stutter.“I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I hhhave absolutely no idea what Biden is talking about. DemDebate,” Sanders posted to Twitter moments later. After receiving swift and overwhelming backlash for ridiculing Biden and other stutterers, Sanders attempted to pretend the jab wasn’t about stuttering: “To be clear was not trying to make fun of anyone with a speech impediment. Simply pointing out I can’t follow much of anything Biden is talking about,” she wrote.Biden’s official Twitter account, meanwhile, fired back at Sanders with his own statement after leaving the debate stage.“I’ve worked my whole life to overcome a stutter,” he said. “And it’s my great honor to mentor kids who have experienced the same. It’s called empathy. Look it up.”The former Trump flack eventually deleted her original tweet and replied to Biden: “I actually didn’t know that about you and that is commendable. I apologize and should have made my point respectfully.”How Joe Biden Inspired This Reporter to Confront His StutterRead more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
