Former Trump White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is being highly-criticized after she mocked Joe Biden’s stuttering during Thursday night’s 2020 Democratic presidential debate.


The former Vice President, who grew up with a stutter he has worked his entire life to control, was actually emulating a child who he said came up to him, saying “I can’t talk.”

Huckabee Sanders took to Twitter in an apparent attempt to disparage Biden.

“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 tweeted.

Biden quickly responded.

Huckabee Sanders deleted her tweet, claiming she was “trying to make fun of anyone with a speech impediment.”

It appears few believe her.

“Christian. Wife. Mom to three. Former Press Sec for @realdonaldtrump. @foxnews contributor. Presidential appointee @fulbrightboard. Traveler. Arkansan.”

Huckabee Sanders later apologized but did not admit she was mocking Biden – which also was not well-received:
