This is a good man and we are lucky to have him. A feel good thread.



https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/president-biden-shares-helpful-advice-during-nantucket-visit-with-girl-who-has-struggled-with-a-stutter/ar-AARj63G?ocid=uxbndlbing

President Joe made a point of meeting this young lady with stuttering issues and promised to help her with her problem.
**************

“Avery said to him ‘Mr. President, I have a stutter just like you,’” she wrote in the Facebook post. “He stopped everything, put his hands on her shoulders, looked her right in the eyes and said ‘Remember this: it doesn’t define you. I have had a stutter my whole life and I’m now the President of the United States. You can be anything you want to be.’ And he spent the next 10 minutes talking to Avery about his stutter, about the movie ‘The King’s Speech’ and some of the tricks he uses when the words get stuck.”

(BTW that State Cop behind the President is very much "on point."

4. "Good Man"

My thought exactly. Look to the kids who interact with our Presidents....Obama and Biden absolutely connected to children. Trump, not at all.

humble. Geez, my son has a stutter too, I said President Biden had a stutter and now he's President. You can overcome.

16. That state cop looked sharp and looked to be on point too

He had Joe and company's back and what ever in the area that was in his per view he was on top of it.

12. SO glad we have him.

It's all too easy sometimes to forget just how lucky we are, what with covid still raging, Repugs still acting like a-holes, TFG still screaming about imaginary election fraud, and everything else that's going on.

Whatever we do, we must not lose sight of how unspeakably worse things could be right now, if that good man hadn't won the election.
