First Lady Jill Biden just told a group of donors that crises, both at home and abroad, are to blame for President Joe Biden’s lack of success, the New York Post reports.
What the first lady didn’t tell donors is that the crises are Biden and the Democrats’ fault. In fact, it would appear that the first lady is oblivious to this fact.
“So many hopes and plans”
The first lady took part in a private Democratic National Committee (DNC) fundraiser in Nantucket, Massachusetts, on Saturday. The event was held at a private home with only about two dozen people in attendance.
It was at this private meet-up that the first lady blamed her husband’s lack of success on anything other than her husband.
“[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 said.
“Who would have ever thought?”
The first lady went on to provide a number of examples, including Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, gun violence, and even the U.S. Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade. She, of course, left out some more more important examples.
He’s just had so many things thrown his way. Who would have ever thought about what happened [with the Supreme Court overturning] Roe v. Wade? Well, maybe we saw it coming, but still we didn’t believe it. The gun violence in this country is absolutely appalling. We didn’t see the war in Ukraine coming.
The first lady also spoke about how her own plans have been upended.
I was saying to myself, ‘Okay, I was Second Lady. I worked on community colleges. I worked on military families. I’ve worked on cancer.’ They were supposed to be my areas of focus. But then when we got [in the White House,] I had to be, with all that was happening, the First Lady of the moment.
A reality check
The first lady’s comments show how out of touch with reality she, her husband, and her fellow Democrats are.
The biggest problems that her husband has faced and continues to face — from the economic crisis to the energy crisis to the border crisis and more — are her husband’s doing. They exist and continue to exist precisely because of the agenda that Biden and the left have forced upon the American people.
How could Biden and the Democrats do any good for our country when they can’t see this simple fact?
