WATCH: Childish Newsmax Anchor Mocks Biden For Stuttering
As President Biden would say, “C’mon man!” Far right-wing “news” outlet Newsmax thought it put out a gem of a news story about the fact that … wait for it … President Joe Biden sometimes stutters. It’s not like Biden hasn’t very publicly talked about it. Or used the affliction that he’s worked through his entire life to conquer to comfort and encourage other people who stutter. He’s been an amazing role model by informing the general public that stuttering when trying to enunciate words doesn’t mean that you’re mentally deficient.
Newsmax on air personality Benny Johnson teed up a segment on what he called “the funniest administration in American history” in which he added a canned laugh track to numerous clips of President Joe Biden speaking in various situations. Exactly what he was trying to prove or accomplish is unclear while advising that “liberals have lost their sense of humor.”
“If we don’t regularly practice our right to ridicule, we will lose it,” Johnson offered. “This is why it is more important than ever in American history to keep humor and ridicule alive. Because it is now clear that we could very well be on the verge of losing it.”
What he did prove is how absolutely desperate Newsmax and other supporters of twice-impeached, one-term former president Donald Trump are to diminish the reversal of fortune that Biden has engineered in less than two months in improving the country’s economic posture and speeding the delivery of coronavirus vaccines to those who need them the most.
If you don’t laugh, you may cry,” he said after the video clips concluded. “Use your God-given right to laugh. It’s healthy. It’s good for you. It’s good for our country.”
“Laugh at me, I deserve it,” Johnson added.
Um, okay. We will. Here’s the clip.
