Joe and Jill Biden Appear At Rally Post Debate

First Lady Jill Biden faced a wave of backlash online after her remarks following President Joe Biden’s widely criticized performance against former President Donald Trump during CNN’s presidential debate. The incident, captured on video, showed her rushing on stage to assist President Biden as he exited following the debate.

“Joe, you did such a great job,” she claimed, despite widespread criticism of his performance. “You answered every question, you knew all the facts.” She then asked the crowd, “And let me ask the crowd, what did Trump do?” to which she answered, “Lie! Yes.”

Douglas Brinkley, author of “The Unfinished Presidency,” shared his thoughts on CBS News’ “Face The Nation” earlier this year. Brinkley remarked that Jill Biden’s actions contrast with those of previous first ladies who have convinced their husbands not to seek re-election. “That’s not the case with Jill Biden. She likes power. She wants to stay. She wants some sense of revenge,” he stated. “The idea of relinquishing it all after you’ve taken the slings and arrows of the last years of attacks, and at the last minute, just when you get all the delegates you’re going to say, I’m going to open it up to a bunch of people — it’s very childish when you read those kinds of reports.”

Online, Jill Biden faced intense criticism for her remarks and her support for her husband’s bid for a second term. Commentator Lisa Boothe expressed her disapproval, saying, “I have no respect for Jill Biden. Encouraging your husband to embarrass himself like this is not love.” Political pundit Jon Gabriel posted on X: “It was elder abuse in 2020. These days, it’s ghoulish.” Former ESPN host Sage Steele also condemned her actions, writing, “Shame on Jill Biden for allowing this to go on for so very long. Shameful actions as a wife. Shameful actions as a human being.”

Former CIA Officer Bryan Dean Wright, who now hosts a podcast, posted: “Jill Biden is, arguably, the worst human on the planet. She knows how bad it is. Joe is sick. And she doesn’t care — about him, or the nation.”

The harsh criticism reflects a growing sentiment among some that Jill Biden’s support for her husband’s political aspirations is misguided and potentially harmful. As the debate aftermath continues to unfold, the first lady’s role and influence in her husband’s political career are under intense scrutiny.
