Lara Trump, wife of Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump, mocked former Vice President Joe Biden’s stutter at a “Women for Trump” event in Iowa Thursday night, calling the speech impediment Biden has suffered with since he was a child “sad.”
“I feel kind of sad for Joe Biden, and you know that’s when it’s not going well for him right? Because I’m supposed to want him to fail at every turn, but every time he comes on stage and they turn to him I’m like, ‘Joe can you get it out? Let’s get the words out Joe.'” she said on stage. “You kind of feel bad for him.”
Biden opened up about his stutter last year in an interview with a reporter from the Atlantic who also suffers from the speech impediment. Biden talked about how he spent years trying to overcome his stutter, which he said made him feel “shame” in his youth.
“Anger, rage, humiliation,” Biden told the Atlantic, describing how the stutter made him feel. “A feeling of, uh—like I’m sure you’ve experienced—it just drops out of your chest, just, like, you feel … a void.”
This is not the first time someone in Donald Trump’s orbit has mocked someone with a disability.
Trump himself infamously mimicked a disabled reporter’s hand movements during a campaign rally during the 2016 election.
It’s also not the first time someone in Trump’s orbit mocked Biden for his stutter.
Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made fun of Biden’s stutter during the Dec. 19 debate, tweeting, “I I I I I I I I I hhhave absolutely no idea what Biden is talking about.”
Biden responded to Sanders’ mean tweet, saying, “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.”
Sanders ultimately deleted her tweet and apologized.
“I actually didn’t know that about you and that is commendable,” Sanders tweeted. “I apologize and should have made my point respectfully.”
Lara routinely trashes the former Vice President by claiming that he is feebleminded which he is unable to keep up with her father-in-law, the President:
“I’m expected to desire him to fail at every turn, however each time he comes on stage and they turn to him I’m like, ‘Joe, can you get it out? Let’s get the words out Joe.’ You kind of feel bad for him.”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the former chief spokesman for President Donald Trump, tweeted an apology to Joe Biden Thursday night after mocking the former vice president’s reference to stuttering at the sixth Democratic presidential debate.
“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,” the former White House press secretary wrote in a now-deleted tweet during the PBS NewsHour/POLITICO debate. Biden had just referenced talking with a “little kid who says I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I can’t talk, what do I do?”
Sanders’ comment, which appeared to mock a speech impediment Biden has struggled with throughout his life, triggered an eruption of angry responses on Twitter.
“To be clear was not trying to make fun of anyone with a speech impediment,” she tweeted in an attempt to defend her initial comment. “Simply pointing out I can’t follow much of anything Biden is talking about.”
Biden‘s Twitter account then acknowledged the swipe, quote-tweeting Sanders shortly after the debate saying, “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.”
Sanders quickly backtracked, deleting her previous tweets and responding, “I actually didn’t know that about you and that is commendable. I apologize and should have made my point respectfully.”
Biden’s stutter has gained widespread attention in recent months after comments about his debate performances. He has referenced it in interviews about Trump since the summer and, in a widely read interview released by The Atlantic last month, Biden detailed his childhood stutter and how it affected him growing up.
Sanders, who left the White House in July, is widely expected to launch a campaign to be governor of her home state of Arkansas.
Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders on Thursday asked forgiveness to former Vice President Joe Biden after mocking a dispute minute where Biden– who has actually been open about overcoming his own stutter– appeared to imitate a stuttering kid to relay how he links to people.
In a video that has gone viral, Nancy Pelosi attempts to describe why she has actually decided to postpone the impeachment circus. The essential part of that sentence is “attempts to.” What comes out of her mouth makes no sense whatsoever. None.If you wish to

” We are, we have, I have … When we bring the costs, which is, simply so you know, there’s an expense made in order by the Rules Committee that we can contact at any time in order to send it to the Senate and to have the provisions in it to spend for the, for the impeachment. And after that the next action, and the eh, que, uh … uhl … … whatever you want to call it, the qu uh, the trial,” Pelosi addressed when inquired about her choice not to submit the impeachment of President Donald Trump to the Senate.
” That is where you put the managers. I was not prepared to put the managers in that costs yet due to the fact that we do not understand the arena that we remain in,” she added.None of the above
makes any sense whatsoever. She just became rather coherent in the tail end of her response:” Frankly, I do not care what the Republicans state.” Pelosi somehow was able to say that without stammering and stammering.
