Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham of The Ingraham Angle mocked Joe Biden’s stutter during his Town Hall on Wednesday, and even acknowledged that she would “get into trouble for this.”
Talking about the CNN event in Ohio, Ingraham asked fellow presenter Raymond Arroyo for his opinions on Biden’s performance at the event.
Arroyo said Biden told a bunch of “old stories” and rehashed some old campaign lines. Then, the network decided to show a series of edited clips that zero in on Biden’s hesitation and stumbled answers to questions.
Once the montage was over, Arroyo said that the situation “was a disaster” and referred to CNN anchor Don Lemon who hosted as being “dumped” with Biden’s campaign slogans.
Ingraham decided to take a different route as she said, “He did like to say a lot, ‘seriously, I’m serious’” before she mimicked a stutter.
Arroyo interjected and said: “These are little crutches when he can’t quite recall, or he is having difficulties.”
Afterwards, Ingraham continued to speak, as she mockingly stuttered over the word ‘look’ while adding, “I’m going to get myself in trouble here, Raymond.”
“This town hall was almost like a coming attractions reel for Walt Disney Company,” Arroyo said in response to Ingraham. “They are giving the public their first glimpse of their new animatronic Joe Biden,” he continued to say mockingly.
Nikki McCann Ramirez, a researcher for Media Matters for America, shared a clip of the segment to her Twitter, which prompted users to criticise Ingraham.
