The First Lady Jill Biden is speaking out in a new interview to whine about how Republicans are treating her son Hunter Biden, accusing them of being “cruel.”
Jill Defends Hunter – Attacks Republicans
While being interviewed by MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, Jill was quick to defend Hunter amidst the onslaught of attacks on him from Republicans.
“I think what they are doing to Hunter is cruel,” she said, according to The Hill. “And I’m really proud of how Hunter has rebuilt his life after addiction.”
“You know, I love my son and it’s had — it’s hurt my grandchildren,” she added. “And that’s what I’m so concerned about, that it’s affecting their lives as well.”
Jill’s interview aired the day after House Republicans voted to advance a contempt of Congress resolution against Hunter, teeing up a full House vote and the potential for criminal charges against the son of the president.
Jill Slams Republican Attacks On Her Family
Jill went on to address the frequent Republican attacks on the Biden family, specifically the rhetoric that is used.
“I mean, to look at it, what we used to have, and what the other side, the extremists have turned this country into,” Jill said. “I mean, we would never see things like that, say 10 years ago.”
Of course, Jill made no mention of the way that Democrats have spoken about and treated the former President Donald Trump and his family over the years. When it came to the Trumps, no attack was too below the belt for leftists, and no attempt to destroy their lives went too far. Now that it’s Hunter Biden in the hot seat, however, liberals like Jill are suddenly losing their minds over rhetoric and politically motivated “witch hunts.”
Jill Defends Joe’s Age
Elsewhere in the interview, Jill defended her husband Joe Biden from frequent claims that he is too old to be president. He is currently 81 years-old, and he would be 86 by the end of his second term if he is reelected, according to Politico. Despite mass fears over this, Jill claims that Joe’s age is an “asset.”
“I see his vigor, I see his energy, I see his passion every single day,” said Jill, 72. “He has wisdom, he has experience.”
“He can do it. And I see Joe every day. I see him out, traveling around this country. I see his vigor, I see his energy, I see his passion every, single day,” she added. “I say his age is an asset. He is experienced. He knows every leader on the world stage. He’s lived history. He knows history. He’s thoughtful in his decisions. He’s is the right man, the right person for the job at this moment in history.”
Unfortunately for Jill, however, the bulk of the country disagrees with her. Last August, a Wall Street Journal poll found that 73 percent of registered voters considered Joe to be “too old to run for president.” Joe also ended 2023 with an extremely low 39% approval rating.
Ignoring her husband’s unpopularity, Jill stuck to her guns, claiming it is crucial that he wins this year’s election.
“We have to win. We must win. We cannot let go of our democracy,” Jill said, to which Brzezinski asked, “And if you don’t?”
“I don’t know,” Jill replied. “I can’t think about it.”
Sorry, Jill, but the rest of us can think about it, and there are millions of Americans out there who would love to live in a world where your husband is no longer president!
