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.
Mewshaw said she doesn’t necessarily agree with everything she translates, but does the volunteer work in response to requests from people who want to see speeches by Republican politicians and other conservative figures translated into ASL.
Her critics, Mewshaw said, "don’t want this content to be interpreted because they don’t believe in it."
"Deaf people just want a chance to decide for themself what information is out there," she said.
Other attacks on Mewshaw included a Change.org petition that’s garnered nearly 9,000 signatures and a since-deleted tweet by deaf model and actor Nyle DiMarco, who wrote, "Imagine what harm she could cause..,literally holding the message in her hands."
University of North Carolina education professor Jon Henner, who’s said it "would be problematic" for Mewshaw to continue working for the White House, told The Post that "I personally wasn’t interested in cancelling her."

The Xiden admin has got to be one of the most paranoid administrations in US history.
“Everything and everyone must support the party. All hail Angkar!”
Carrying on like Obama’s.
Remember when Biden handlers locked a journalist in a closet?
I’ve always found closed captions easy to read anyway.
Bidet’s circle of sociopaths will turn on each other like jackals—it is all they know.
That’s your boy Fox Wallace!
Remember the signer for Obama at the Nelson Mandela funeral? Biden should hire him. He must have been vetted. Its not like what Biden says makes any sense anyway.
Everyone is being blacklisted, which chills the freedom of other people who will be afraid to speak up.
Soviets, Communist Chinese, Dems’ United States.
The popular potus was booed unmercifully at the Super Bowl
Looks like she’ll have a job in the new Xiden administration!
She’s a dope if she think the Biden Administration would use her. Only Republicans do such stupid things. What the hell is wrong with this woman for thinking any different?
MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY:
Did you watch the video of the pre-recorded message being played at Raymond James Stadium? Not only was he booed, people completely ignored his message and Practically pretended he wasn’t talking. Granted with his feeble slurring speech that he has you could barely understand a word he was saying over the background noise in the crowd. I can clearly understand every word “doctor” Jill said but could barely understand half of what he said.
That is amazing, I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.
What a small, spiteful little bunch of weasel staffers...
It comes with the territory, contract over. Look at it as a blessing as now she won’t be around the pervert Biden.
Naw, they gotta be fed the party line just like the rest of us.
It is hard to make it what the man is saying half the time looks like the entire city of Tampa was defying his mask orders last night
Biden has his own sign language interpreter. Why does he need Trump's?
