According to a new report, Jill Biden is playing a disproportionate role in her husband’s administration in order to defend him.
Jill Biden, the wife of President Joe Biden, is directly involved in the process of vetting administration officials, attending meetings, shielding her husband from the stress of long events, and performing a variety of other tasks that keep him from having to handle too much on his own, according to sources.
“Jill Biden’s reported influence in the White House comes as Joe Biden has been scrutinized for being led off stage by the first lady, and appearing to be physically led away from reporters’ questions. Jill Biden has been appearing frequently at public events and plans to hit the campaign trail going into the 2024 election,” The List reported.
According to the source, Jill is “running the show” in the background.
Behind the scenes, First Lady Jill Biden might be running the show. In an interview with David Muir, President Biden was asked about a second run, and he joked, “I gotta call [Jill] and find out.” He was kidding, but there is some truth behind his wife’s influence. A former senior adviser told Politico, “She is always his final gut check.” As of April 2023, the president officially made his re-election bid. He released a campaign video where his wife can be spotted embracing the vice president, speaking out, and politicking on the campaign trail.
A former advisor to the Head of State revealed, “She is typically present when senior campaign staff members present a strategy to her husband.” She will pose inquiries. But she never participates in decision-making.”
Jill Biden has recently made public statements in response to concerns regarding Joe Biden’s mental capacity:
His age raises concerns about his mental and physical abilities. Nikki Haley, a Republican presidential candidate, proposed requiring politicians over the age of 75 to pass a mental competency examination.
However, the first lady says a competency test is absurd. In an interview with CNN, Jill Biden defended her husband saying, “How many 30-year-olds could travel to Poland, get on the train? Go nine more hours, go to Ukraine, meet with President [Volodymyr] Zelenskyy?” There’s no need for a competency test in her eyes, you just need to open yours. She says, “So, look at the man. Look what he’s doing. Look what he continues to do each and every day.”
Under President Biden, the White House has witnessed unprecedented exits.
According to a recent report, Jill Biden’s office is experiencing significant turnover due to the departure of a critical assistant.
Elizabeth Alexander, the former director of communications for Jill Biden, will manage the “messaging arm” of President Biden’s 2024 re-election campaign.
“The move speaks to how Biden’s campaign is still taking shape, one week after he announced he would seek another term. The campaign announced only two staff hires on its first day: campaign manager Julie Chavez Rodriguez and principal deputy campaign manager Quentin Fulks,” Brookings reported.
“Since 2006, Elizabeth has been a steadfast advisor to President Biden and the first lady. Her deep communications knowledge and expertise will serve the campaign well — helping stand up a campaign communication team that will reach voters where they are across all forms of media while staying true to who Joe Biden is,” Anita Dunn, a Biden adviser, said in a statement.
