Larry Elder angrily berates Rachel Jeantel for having a speech impediment

Published

on

Conservative radio host Larry Elder lashed out at Rachel Jeantel Wednesday night on CNN because she suffers from a speech impediment.

How the young black woman talked during the trial of George Zimmerman resulted in a combination of sympathy and mockery. Elder suggested that Jeantel was unintelligent and uneducated because of the way she spoke.

However, Jeantel suffers from a structural underbite, a condition which makes it difficult to pronounce many consonants correctly because of the position of her teeth in relation to the tip of her tongue. The condition can only be corrected with surgery.

“Rachel Jeantel needs to get her act together,” Elder said. “If my mother were alive, she would say, ‘How dare she speak like that.'”

CNN host Piers Morgan noted that Jeantel was trilingual — she speaks English, Spanish and Haitian Creole — and had a GPA of 3.0 in high school. She fell behind in school because of an illness, which is why she started her senior year of high school when she was 19-years-old.

“Does she sound to you like anyone you want to hire in any kind of capacity?” Elder responded.

Although Gidley was referring to Biden's family, several commenters noted that the campaign aide could also have been talking about Trump's children.

The View’s Sunny Hostin calls out GOP voter suppression ‘shenanigans’: ‘Reeks of desperation’

Published

on

"The View" co-host Sunny Hostin called out Republican "shenanigans" intended to suppress voter turnout.

The panelists discussed reports of President Donald Trump's supporters -- including one Miami police officer -- trying to intimidate voters and wreaking "havoc" outside polling stations, and Hostin said that doesn't show a lot of confidence.

"Well, it just seems to me that it reeks of desperation, but primarily from the Republican Party," Hostin said. "All of the shenanigans that seem to be coming up, you know, are the Republican Party trying to limit the number of polling stations, the Republican Party in California putting out these sort of dummy ballot boxes."

In a video posted by his son, bestselling author Max Brooks, Mel explained to viewers why he was making his first-ever video political endorsement.

The video starts with the 94-year-old Brooks pointing to his son and grandson standing behind him behind a glass door.

"They can't be with me," he explained. "Why? Because of this coronavirus! And Donald Trump's not doing a damn thing about it."

He then said that he believed Biden would do a better job of containing the virus and would help America get back to normal sooner than the current president.
