(Republican Leader) – New reports have revealed that President Joe Biden will not be headlining his own campaign events in California and New York, adding more fuel to the fire that he is not mentally or physically able to perform the duties of the office. Instead, first lady Jill Biden will be taking his place. Makes you wonder if she’s not really the one who will be running for office, doesn’t it? I mean, if Democrats were smart they’d yank Biden and put in Michelle Obama. There’s still time for that to happen, so who knows at this point, right?
Fox News reported, “While the 2024 presidential election is more than a year away, the first lady will be conducting her first solo outings of the campaign season during a three-day fundraising series in New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles beginning Monday. Most of her time will be spent at four political events, including two in California’s Bay Area, to help her husband’s re-election, the Democratic National Committee and Democratic state party committees.”
Jill Biden, who is 72, will be teaming up with Gabrielle Giffords for an event held in Los Angeles to help celebrate the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the Giffords Law Center, which is an organization dedicated to helping strip law-abiding American citizens of their Second Amendment right to own firearms. The inspiration for the group’s founding was the incident in 2011 that resulted in Giffords being shot in the head.
These will be the first few events for the president’s bride since comments she made last Thursday that did not go over the way she was expecting.
“I’ve visited red states and blue states, and I’ve found that the common values that unite us are deeper than our divisions,” Biden declared before inserting a dramatic pause. When there wasn’t the enthusiastic reaction she was waiting for, the first lady responded by saying, “I thought you might clap for that.”
“Biden, who also works as a community college English professor, urged people at various events last year to prioritize voting in the 2024 presidential election,” Fox News noted.
“Like a lot of educators, to stay organized, I use to-do lists,” she added. “So this election is going to be won or lost by where voting falls on your to-do list.”
Biden then remarked, “Put voting at the top of your to-do list.”
A senior campaign adviser, Elizabeth Alexander, who used to be Jill Biden’s communications director stated that she is very well-liked and will be a “formidable presence” all along the campaign trail.
“As she has been for all her husband’s presidential campaigns, she will continue to be a formidable presence on the stump,” Alexander gushed. “Her warmth and approachability, combined with her 30-plus years as a classroom teacher, make her an effective messenger on the campaign trail.”
Fox News then explained, “Republican strategist Doug Heye said presidents’ wives are generally liked by independent voters. He also suggested she can provide the president a layer of protection against criticism as Republicans run the risk of scrutinizing her and subsequently drawing ire from those who like her.”
“If you’re criticizing the first lady, that can backfire,” Heye added.
The important point of this should be the fact that Biden himself is not out raising monetary support and votes for his own presidential reelection campaign. Ever since he announced his intentions to run against former President Donald Trump in 2020, there have been signs that he is physically and mentally not up to the task of being the commander-in-chief.
He mumbles and bumbles over his words, falls down frequently, stumbles over his words, looks clueless and wanders around, needs cheat sheets to even know where to stand during events, and is often guided around like a lost kindergartener by both Jill and his Secret Service detail.
His absence here does nothing to assuage those fears.
