Jill Biden says America can't see how hard her husband works

 January 16, 2024

Jill Biden raised some eyebrows by vigorously defending her husband's work ethic in an interview with Morning Joe.

The First Lady tried to explain Joe Biden's poor approval ratings by saying that Americans just don't see how hard he works each day.

Of course, many are sure to find Jill's comments hard to believe given the chaotic state of the country and Biden's virtually invisible campaign presence, which has left Jill picking up the slack.

Jill defends Joe's work ethic...

While Biden has been criticized for spending an unusual amount of time in office on vacation, Jill said her husband "works every single day."

"And I think what people don't see is how hard Joe works every single day," she told Morning Joe. "That he gets up thinking what he can do for the American people," she said.

It's not surprising that many Americans assume Biden is completely inactive - or else actively destructive.

While inflation has slowed, prices and interest rates remain well above pre-Biden levels and millions of illegal immigrants have poured into the country.

Concern about Biden's age is widespread, but Jill, who is often seen guiding her husband in public, improbably touted his age as an "asset," echoing Joe, who says he has "wisdom."

“He has wisdom. He has experience," she continued. "He knows every leader on the world stage. He’s lived history. He knows history. He’s thoughtful in his decisions. He is the right man or the right person for the job at this moment in history.”

Working those phones...

Despite her husband's frequent absences from work, Jill said her husband is a very busy man.

“He’s on the phone, and he’s on the phone with leaders from foreign countries, and he’s on the phone with his cabinet. Or he’s on the phone with somebody who’s lost their home because of a tornado or going through some personal problem," she said.

Despite Jill's aggressive defense of her husband, prominent allies including Barack Obama have raised concern about his re-election bid and campaign operation.

In 2020, Biden had the luxury of campaigning from home during COVID. But the pandemic is in the rearview and Biden is under pressure from allies to pick up the pace.

Biden has based his campaign on saving "democracy" from Donald Trump, who Biden has portrayed as a would-be dictator even as Democrats try to remove Trump from the ballot.
