The pilot known for his heroic “Miracle on the Hudson” landing of US Airways Flight 1549 in 2009 has written an op-ed in The New York Times defending Joe Biden’s stutter after it was mocked by the president’s daughter-in-law — and revealing that he, too, stuttered as a child.
Capt. Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger III started the editorial, headlined “Like Joe Biden, I Once Stuttered, Too. I Dare You to Mock Me,” by reminiscing on the pain he felt as a kid in northeast Texas growing up with a stutter “and the bullying that would follow.”
“Those feelings came rushing back, when I heard Lara Trump mocking former Vice President Joe Biden at a Trump campaign event, with the very words that caused my childhood agony,” Sully wrote.
The retired pilot, who also served in the U.S. Air Force, references his daring landing in the Hudson River — and credits it with helping get over his stutter.
“A speech disorder is a lot easier to treat than a character defect,” he wrote. “You become a true leader, not because of how you speak, but because of what you have to say.”
Yet another example of the egregious reporting we see every day in the mainstream media. Anyone who takes 10 seconds to watch what I actually said can clearly see that I never mention a stutter — didn’t even know he had one — but they can’t help themselves https://t.co/i7oyVR6xlp
