Biden Administration Accused of ‘Humiliating’ Sign Language Interpreter

This isn’t a good look for an administration claiming to serve “all Americans”.

Joe Biden made a whole lot of promises during the 2020 election, but there weren’t a whole lot that were all that specific.

That’s because Biden only had one real job out there on the campaign trail:  Remind people that he wasn’t Donald Trump.  This was the entire ethos of the Democratic Party, if we’re being honest.  All the left wanted to do was keep their distance from the then-President, and bank on the dislike of Trump being far greater than the affinity for Biden.

So ol’ Joe kept telling us that he’d be “a President for all Americans”, and that these “dark days” could soon be over.

But, now that he’s in the White House, there seems to be some friction regarding what “all Americans” really means.

The White House sign-language interpreter who was outed as a supporter of former President Donald Trump said Sunday that she hasn’t been offered a return engagement since — and blasted critics who attacked her credibility and professionalism.

Heather Mewshaw, who began working as an independent contractor for the White House last year, said she hasn’t been contacted by the Biden administration in the wake of a Time magazine report that revealed she translated speeches for conservative social media groups.

“The goal of my activity — at the White House or with Hands of Liberty — is that it’s all about access,” Mewshaw told The Post.

And it gets worse…

“The thing is, I was canceled and humiliated publicly and it was unjust and unfair.”

Mewshaw, a 41-year-old married mother of four from Glen Burnie, Md., also said she’s been “harassed” and “intimidated” online for providing American Sign Language translation for the Hands of Liberty Facebook group and its defunct predecessor, Right Side ASL.

The Biden administration has refused to comment specifically on Mewshaw’s situation, referring only to a generic statement made regarding ASL interpreters in general.
