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.

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.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Whines ‘Women Attack Me Relentlessly’ in Fox News Contributor Debut

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Whines ‘Women Attack Me Relentlessly’ in Fox News Contributor Debut“Ladies and gentlemen, she’s a Fox News contributor!” That’s how Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy introduced former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who made her debut as a paid pundit for the network Friday morning. She spent most of her 10-minute appearance fawning over President Donald Trump and feeling sorry for herself. Sanders began by dismissing concerns over the soft September jobs numbers. “Look, I think at the end of the day, there’s no question that the president and his administration have turned the country around and put it on the right track,” she said, arguing that “we are doing better under this president than we have in the previous eight years.” Those assertions went unchallenged by the Fox hosts. When Doocy suggested that some believed “we needed a magic wand” to turn manufacturing around in this country, Sanders chimed in with, “Well, we found one in President Trump.” Even when some time Trump critic Brian Kilmeade raised mild concerns over the trade war with China, Sanders said the president was doing everything right. Newsmax Enlists Bill O’Reilly’s Longtime Right-Hand Man for War on Fox NewsLater, Doocy brought up the infamous incident when Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant in Virginia and wondered whether she is “still taking heat when you go out to eat” now that she’s left the White House. “Sometimes,” she answered with a laugh. “It usually depends on where I am in the country.” Sanders said she has had no problems in her native Arkansas but it’s “hit or miss” in New York City. While she said she hasn’t been asked to leave any restaurants recently, people do sometimes say “nasty” things to her.“What I always find interesting is, 99 percent of the people that come over to say something negative and to attack you are women,” Sanders added, saying she finds that “very startling” from a “group of people that claim to be the champions of women empowerment.” “I’m only the third woman and the first mom to ever be the White House press secretary,” she continued, “and yet women attack me relentlessly instead of being proud that we have more women doing those types of jobs.” “But you’re out of the administration!” Doocy replied incredulously. “I am, but they still see me as someone who is a very pro-Trump supporter,” Sanders said. “I’m not going to change my position.” With that in mind, Sanders offered a small preview of what readers can expect from her upcoming White House memoir. “My experience was extremely positive,” she said, “my book will be positive.” We all know how that approach worked out for her predecessor Sean Spicer. ‘Fox & Friends’ Host Brian Kilmeade: Trump ‘Never Should Have Said’ Mexico Would Pay for WallRead more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
