A Mother Fired Back After A TV Host Picked On Her Autistic Son

Last week Vice President Pence held a special event honoring military families, which isn't the sort of thing that usually attracts controversy. But near the end of his speech, Pence got a little too animated and bumped his arm against a 10-year-old boy in the crowd behind him.

You might remember this, the moment went viral last week because the little boy, Michael Herrera-Yee, "demanded" an apology from the vice president.

Most people seemed to think the moment was cute and silly, and Pence certainly wasn't upset, but that didn't stop Fox host Tammy Bruce from singling the boy out.

During last Friday's episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Bruce used the clip to launch into a bizarre rant about "snowflake" children, while her co-host criticized Michael's parents for teaching their child to insist on an apology.

"I guess we're giving birth to snowflakes now," Bruce said, "because that looked like the kid needed a safe space in that room."

But according to Dr. Ingrid Herrera-Yee, Michael's mother, they have no idea what they're talking about. This week she shared a special message with the hosts that everyone needs to hear.
