Sarah Sanders steps in hornets’ nest when she mocks Biden for ‘stuttering’ during debate

Ah, where would the left be without their collective outrage… but you have to admit, reducing Thursday evening’s Democratic presidential debate down to a cry-fest over stuttering is oh, so fitting, given the status of the party today.

Of course, there can be no outrage without a target on the right, which is were Sarah Sanders comes into play. The former Trump White House press secretary responded to a bizarre moment of former Vice President Joe Biden imitating a stuttering child.

“I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I hhhave absolutely no idea what Biden is talking about,” Sanders tweeted.

She would later delete the post after pearl-clutching liberals like Ana Navarro, CNN’s favorite “Republican,” objected.

“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,” Sanders clarified.

This being an unfortunate reality that occurs often on the campaign trail, not being able to understand Biden’s ramblings about roaches and gangbangers named after a favorite breakfast cereal.

Here is the moment in question”

“My wife and I have a call list of somewhere between 20 and 100 people that we call at least every week or every month to tell them, ‘I’m here.’ I give them my private phone number. They keep in touch with me. The little kid who says, ‘I-I-I-I-I-I-I can’t talk, what do I do?’ I have scores of these young women and men who I keep in contact with.”

 

 

Given that Biden used to have a stuttering problem explains how accurately he imitated a stuttering child, but it didn’t fare as well for Sanders.

Biden responded online to Sanders’ tweet: “I’ve worked my whole life to overcome a stutter. And it’s my great honor to mentor kids who have experienced the same. It’s called empathy. Look it up.”

This prompted an apology from the former Trump administration official.

“I actually didn’t know that about you and that is commendable,” Sanders tweeted. “I apologize and should have made my point respectfully.”

As seen when Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant by its liberal owner, being the daughter of former Gov. Mike Huckabee, an outspoken former preacher, and a Trump supporter, the left reserves a special, unhinged level of ire for her.

Here’s a short sampling of the hate being spewed in response to her tweet:

And this from Emily Brandwin, who says she is a former CIA disguise officer — which speaks volumes about the makeup of the intelligence agency in post-Obama America.

Of course, there’s another perspective that runs counter to the manufactured outrage that suggests, “Stop being so soft!”
