Though President Joe Biden has been forced to work in isolation due to his recent COVID-19 diagnosis, first lady Jill Biden has been keeping up with her scheduled appearances of late, including a tour of summer learning programs in the state of Connecticut.
However, as was captured in embarrassing video footage, Mrs. Biden was attacked by multiple hecklers outside a New Haven ice cream shop who were determined to make their dissatisfaction with her husband’s job performance loudly known, according to the Washington Examiner.
As the Hartford Courant reported, Jill Biden was in Connecticut as part of a broader tour focused on efforts designed to address learning loss caused by pandemic-related school closures.
During a break in the action, Biden – accompanied by Education Secretary Miguel Cardona and Democrat Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont – visited the Arethusa Farms ice cream shop for a sweet treat, after which Lamont marked the occasion with a tweet that gushed, “Discovered today that @FLOTUS and I share to common loves: teaching kids and ice cream.”
The governor’s jolly social media post, however, gave no hint of the unpleasant incident that occurred on the way in to the New Haven business, when a man yelled to the first lady, according to Fox News, “Your husband is the worst president we ever had, you owe us gas money!”
Seemingly unaware of – or intentionally indifferent to – the boisterous critique, Mrs. Biden replied, “Thank you! Thank you for your support, than you!” after which a second bystander hollered, “You suck!” WATCH:

President Biden’s approval rating has continued to plummet to record lows in recent days, and while some might argue that it is unfair to public attack his spouse for the policy choices he makes, a growing number of commentators have started to suggest that it is Mrs. Biden’s raw political ambition that has led to the mounting crises the country now faces.
As early as last summer, amid the disastrous American withdrawal from Afghanistan, Fox News’ Rachel Campos-Duffy contended that Jill Biden should never allowed her husband to seek the highest office in the land given his obviously worsening cognitive decline.
“Who are the people responsible for putting someone this incompetent and frankly this mentally frail in this position…I’m sorry, as a political spouse, I can’t help but look at Jill Biden,” said Campos-Duffy, who added, “[n]o one knew better his state of mind than Dr. Jill Biden. And if you ask me, the most patriotic thing Jill Biden could have done was tell her husband, to love her husband, and not let him run in the mental state that he is in. I think she failed the country as well.”
PJ Media’s Stephen Kruiser echoed those sentiments earlier this year, saying, “During the campaign, I kept mentioning that Biden must not have anyone who really loves him. I was mostly talking about his wife, of course. The United States is being subjected to this misery because Jill Biden is power-hungry and wasn’t in a position to grab any herself.”
According to Kruiser, “Doctor Jill is perfectly content to let Joe finish his long career falling apart on television just so she can have everyone in Washington suck up to her while she’s keeping the evil teachers’ unions in bed with the president of the United States,” but luckily, such plans stand a good chance of being thwarted in the next presidential election cycle, if not by a frustrated Democrat Party elite, then by the American voters who have simply had enough.
