First Lady Jill Biden offered up multiple excuses for her husband’s failed presidential policies while speaking to the Democrat National Committee on Saturday.
[The President] had so many hopes and plans for things he wanted to do, but every time you turned around, he had to address the problems of the moment,’ Biden told the major Democrat donors. “He’s just had so many things thrown his way.”
The First Lady then proceeded to lay the blame for her husband first on the Supreme Court over the overturn of Roe v Wade, acting like they never “saw it coming” despite having almost 50 years to codify it into law.
“Who would have ever thought about what happened [with the Supreme Court overturning] Roe v. Wade?” she asked before conceding, “Well, maybe we saw it coming, but still we didn’t believe it.”
Despite Jill’s plea, many Democrats have felt that Joe Biden isn’t doing enough to try and protect abortion access following the ruling by the highest Court. Some progressives like Elizabeth Warren have even suggested he could use his presidential powers to open abortion clinics on federal lands in states that have banned them.
She then pointed to a wave of gun violence in 2022 that has seen multiple high profile mass shootings in public places in just a few months as well as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
“The gun violence in this country is absolutely appalling. We didn’t see the war in Ukraine coming,” she continued.
It was at that point that Jill Biden acknowledged the most shocking thing of all, the likelihood of the Republican party taking back Congress in 2022. She did, however, suggest Republicans are “evil”.
“I know there are so many nay-sayers who say we’ll get slammed in the midterms. Okay. The Republicans are working hard, they stick together, for good or evil. So, we just have to work harder,” Jill Biden said.
Jill Biden has taken a very prominent role in her husband’s administration, often acting as his handler. She has instructed him on how to respond to the press and even where to sit and walk. Who do you think is really running the Biden White House?
