Former Vice President Joe Biden tore into former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders after she made fun of him for acknowledging his problems with stuttering during the PBS & Politico Democratic Debate.
As Biden spoke about the people he has met throughout his campaign near the end of the debate, part of his statement included an imitation of a child suffering from a stutter.
The former veep has spoken on the campaign trail about how he used to stutter as a child, and that he meets with kids with similar struggles who ask him for advice.
Your boss came to power by mocking people with disabilities and now you are using your influence to do it too. https://t.co/rnKCRkxZnm

-Mocking a reporter with a physical disability
-Saying a teenager with Asperger’s doesn’t emote properly
-Doing this when Biden was obviously sympathizing with people with speech impediments https://t.co/v5i4Lau3IW

Biden has worked to overcome stuttering his whole life and he was invoking all the stuttering kids he comes across on the campaign trail. https://t.co/LjZBc326Vn

I actually didn’t know that about you and that is commendable. I apologize and should have made my point respectfully. https://t.co/fbmVAqDoWI
