An Arizona governor has divided opinions this week after footage showed him allegedly "mocking" Joe Biden's stutter.

 

But, with the way the whole 2020 election process has been playing out...

Are we really surprised?

The incident happened yesterday at President Trump's latest rally in Tulsa.

The Arizonan governor, who is usually a well-respected figure in the area, gave a speech and, in doing so, seemingly mocked the Democratic candidate's childhood speech stammer.

Since the controversial speech, Twitter has been alight with speculation...

But, while some have slammed the governor for his actions, many have argued that his speech wasn't quite as it seemed.

Now, we are mere weeks away from the highly anticipated presidential election...

And it's been an explosive journey coming up to it, to say the least.

Donald Trump is hoping to gain victory and be reelected as President of the United States...

But it seems that he has some serious competition from his rival, Joe Biden.

Of course, the election couldn't have fallen on a worse year...

But it has been powering on ahead... despite many major setbacks.

The first presidential debate was held on September 29th at the Samson Pavilion of the Health Education Campus in Cleveland.

Entering into the debate, Biden had a significant and persistent lead in the polls. Biden's lead was compounded by a cash crunch in Trump's campaign, with Biden's campaign donations improving significantly.

President Trump was obviously aware of this...

And in the weeks running up the debate, he attempted to cast doubt over Biden's abilities, claiming that he was suffering from dementia and that he was taking performance-enhancing drugs. Trump even requested Biden to take a drug test before the debate.

But overall, the ninety-minute debate, that was held by Fox News' Chris Wallace, was a bitter one.

Both Trump and Biden seemed to be having a field day throwing insults at one another and calling each other out.

The whole debate was certainly made personal...

And it didn't leave a pleasant taste in the mouths of viewers who were, quite frankly, left feeling disgusted at what they had just witnessed.

It all felt very disorganized...

And the people of America have never before felt so disheartened in the run-up to an election.

And, just when we thought things couldn't get any worse, along came President Trump's coronavirus diagnosis.

At the start of October, the President and the First Lady, Melania, tested positive for the potentially deadly virus. Trump insisted that they immediately went into self-isolation together and that they felt fine, but after just a few days, he was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Centre.

In the days following his shock diagnosis, Trump continued to insist on how he was "feeling better than ever."

But when Joe Biden proposed making the next presidential debate a virtual one in the interest of health and safety, Trump put his foot down.

FYI, this wasn't just Biden's idea.

The Commission on Presidential Debates announced that the October 15th town hall-style debate in Miami would take place virtually as health experts raised concerns about whether it would be safe to hold the event in person given Trump is still recovering from COVID-19.

So instead, Joe Biden participated in a Philadelphia town hall forum moderated by ABC's George Stephanopoulos on October 15th...

via: Getty

And in typical Trump fashion, the President announced at the last minute that he would be holding his own town hall forum in Miami at exactly the same time, hosted by NBC.

Trump's event was hosted by NBC's Savannah Guthrie...

And this was the first time ever that 2 hopeful presidential candidates went head-to-head at the same time while not being at the same event.

Trump's forum was firey and argumentative...

via: Getty

While Biden's was calm and collected.

Right now, Joe Biden seems to be in the lead going by the polls...

via: Getty

So, of course, Trump is doing everything in his power to knock his chances.

And this brings us back to our story.

Yesterday, the president was joined by Arizona governor, Doug Ducey, at his Tulsa rally and, let's just say, Trump seems to have acquired his own little sidekick.

Ducey made some strong claims about Biden...

Stating that, if he were to win the upcoming election, he would lock down America, he'd raise taxes, and that he would make Washington D.C. a state (not sure where the relevance was with that one.)

But then, he seemingly moved onto a more personal attack.

via: Getty

During his speech, Ducey appeared to make fun out of Biden's stammer, stating: "J-J-Joe Biden is wrong for America."

The whole thing was caught on-camera...

via: Getty

But people are seriously divided.

For the most part, people are outraged at his blatant mocking...

And have demanded that he issue a formal apology.

However, on the other hand...

Some people are convinced that Ducey did not mock the Democratic candidate and that it was either a genuine stutter or a bad edit.

Ducey himself even weighed in on the scenario...

Writing on Twitter: "This is false. I did not mock Joe Biden's stutter, nor would I ever."

You can watch the moment here and decide for yourself.

Did Ducey mock Biden? Or was it a simple, yet unfortunate coincidence?
