It’s always the ones who try to act the most composed in public that end up blowing up the hardest in private. First Lady Jill Biden reportedly unleashed her wrath on President Joe Biden and his team after a press conference that, by all accounts, left viewers questioning the president’s mental acuity. It’s heartwarming to see such concern from the power couple.
In the aftermath of Biden’s impromptu press conference, where he passionately defended his mental fitness amidst a swirl of forgetfulness and mix-ups, Axios shared insights from a forthcoming book. According to the excerpts, Jill Biden’s “fiercest protector” mode kicked in, and she demanded answers like a seasoned interrogator.
“Why didn’t anyone stop that?” she allegedly fumed, as if the aides were supposed to swoop in and rescue the president from his own verbal calamity. The look on her face apparently spoke volumes, and one can only imagine the tension in the room as Biden’s performance got a dressing down.
But fear not, loyal Democrats! The party’s reaction to Biden’s press conference was as mixed as a bag of political tricks. Some rushed to defend their champion, while others, huddled in private corners, quietly signaled that the president’s re-election campaign might have taken a considerable hit.
Even seasoned political minds couldn’t help but express their concerns. Paul Begala, a Biden supporter, put on a brave face, assuring CNN viewers that he “slept like a baby” – crying and wetting the bed every two hours, of course.
An anonymous Democrat House member spilled the beans to NBC News, deeming the special counsel’s assessment a “nightmare” that “weakens President Biden electorally.” Grim situations and devastating events, according to Democrat operatives, unfolded before their very eyes, confirming every doubt and concern that voters might harbor.
It seems the consensus among Democrats is that Biden’s press conference was nothing short of a catastrophe. A former Biden White House official went so far as to call it “brutal,” while another likened taking the nomination away from Biden to confiscating your parents’ car keys – because who wouldn’t trust their elderly parents with the nuclear launch codes?
Oh, the joys of political drama! Let’s all hold hands and hope for more entertaining press conferences to come.
