“Dr.” Jill Biden said in an interview Tuesday that her husband, President of the United States Joe Biden, has “done so much” and that she wished “people could see more of what Joe has accomplished and how hard he’s working.”
Joe might be doing a good job, but his policies don’t work. Gas prices have risen to an all-time high and stock markets are in turmoil. His approval rating has fallen to historic lows. The economy is currently in recession according any reasonable definition. Jill’s own star has been fading recently, as she stepped on a rake with tacogate and her approval ratings crumbled.
“Sometimes it feels like we’re pushing this boulder up the hill, but progress is being made,” she said in an interview with Real Simple.
Real Simple magazine, a lifestyle magazine with shopping tips and recipes, is published monthly. It is not clear why the First Lady sounds out here. The headline of the piece reads: “Exclusive: Dr. Jill Biden, First Lady of the United States discusses What it means to be a working mom.”
Jill gets her “Dr.” moniker because she earned a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) The University of Delaware in 2007 awarded her a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Educational Leadership. I’m not one to demean someone’s credentials, but the title doctor is misleading as many people think she’s an actual medical M.D. (Check out Whoopie Goldberg’s priceless reaction, where she hopes Jill will become the next surgeon general because she’s such a “great doctor.”)
I’m sorry, but…. she’s a working mom? Her youngest son was born in 1981. Meanwhile her stepson Hunter has not exactly turned out so well, so I’m not sure hanging her hat on that one is such a good idea.
Is she wishing she could spend more time with her children? Yes:
Yes! It’s especially important when you have children. You’re always thinking, “Did I spend enough time at his game?” Or, “Should I have said that?” You’re always questioning yourself because you want to be the best mother you can be, the best teacher you can be.
I wonder what other game she didn’t spend enough time with? Hunter plays in a over-40 softball league. Then she goes on to detail her dining-party routines, which include her frequent use of Post-It note reminders to people to slice the tomatoes and lemons. Then she returns to her reality.
I don’t want to sound like a political ad, but we have done so much. Joe talks to people every day about oil and gas. Gas prices are an important issue. This is a fast-paced, serious problem. And a lot of the solution may be dark as you have said. But I wish people could see more of what Joe has accomplished and how hard he’s working.
People can’t see what Joe has accomplished because he can call leaders all day and night about gas and oil, but his energy-killing policies are clearly what is to blame for the insane prices at the pump. Sure, they’ve been touting that prices have come down in recent weeks, but I took this photo Sunday, July 28:
There is not much to be proud of.
The rest of the interview is filled with cutesy gossip about Joe’s baking skills and their candle-lit dinners. This interview would have been sweet if the couple were your grandparents, or older couples you enjoy spending time with. I actually applaud her for standing up for her husband; in the words of the great Tammy Wynette, “Stand By Your Man.” But her efforts at defending what is now being openly talked about as the worst-administration-of-all-time fall flat.
There is simply no defense for this president who is presided over a flagging economy, unhappy people, unstable world order and an out-of control border. I appreciated her tips on lemons, but they won’t solve our problems.
