Capt. "Sully" Sullenberger pens op-ed in defense of Biden: 'I stuttered once, too. I dare you to moc

BY MARTY JOHNSON - 01/18/20 07:20 PM EST

Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, the retired pilot known for safely landing US Airways Flight 1549 in 2009, authored a New York Times' op-ed Saturday defending former Vice President Joe Biden's stutter amid mocking comments made about him earlier in the week.

"Sully," who admits that he also had a stutter, begins the piece reflecting on his childhood in Denison, Texas and how hard speaking in class was for him.

"Those feelings came rushing back," "Sully" wrote, "when I heard Lara Trump mocking former Vice President Joe Biden at a [President] Trump campaign event, with the very words that caused my childhood agony.

“Joe, can you get it out?” Ms. Trump was seen saying onstage, as a few giggles are heard from an otherwise silent audience. “Let’s get the words out, Joe.”

1. Perhaps she would do well to mock her father in law...

whose command of the English language is approximately that of a 5th grader (or perhaps even lower).
This horrible family of grifters, liars, cheaters and dumbasses are a cancer on America.
