Sarah Huckabee Sanders is not your most informed, and certainly not your classiest player in the world of right wing political mania, but this is beyond the pale even for her. She mocked Joe Biden’s stutter, and immediately deleted the tweet when Twitter blew up in her face. She told Biden that she “didn’t know” he had a stutter. Three presidential bids, eight years as vice president, and how many years before that as a senator — and this is new information? But it does make sense, if you think about it. If you’re going to support Trump as wholeheartedly as she has, you have to be oblivious to who’s who and what’s what, even as he is. That’s the whole trick to Trumpism, stay in your bubble and stay ignorant, keep the blinders firmly in place, because once you get some information, you won’t be able to stick to your ridiculous talking points anymore, and the game’s over. And on this occasion, she really stepped in it.

Twitter piled on with comments about SHS’s weight, her “Picasso eyes” that don’t match, all kinds of things, asking her “how do you like it?” This was don’t dish it out unless you can take it night for Sanders.
I mentioned Sarah was buzzed because in my experience, alcohol tends to make social settings a bit friendlier, even w/ politics involved. Not for Sarah! Folks were avoiding her like the plague. Turns out there ain’t even enough alcohol to forget defending mass child abuse.

I think SHS deserves everything she has gotten tonight, and more. The last straw for me was when she lied about Jim Acosta “striking” a “young intern” — and when all was said and done the video was doctored, sped up, and the woman in question was not an intern, but an employee of the White House communications office for a number of years.
SHS is cut from the same bolt of cloth as Hanoi Hannah and Tokyo Rose. She’s a propagandist par excellence and she plays dirty. She was playing dirty with Biden tonight and she got caught. Too bad. I have zero compassion at this point. Not after all the lies that poured from the podium when she was press secretary. Maybe she should look up compassion, too, when she’s looking up empathy, and maybe it will begin to dawn on her why she’s so reviled.
