Jill Biden Makes Excuses For POTUS’s Lack of Progress at Private DNC Fundraiser in Nantucket

Speaking to donors at a private Democratic National Committee fundraiser on the tony island of Nantucket, Massachusetts, on Saturday, First Lady Jill Biden blamed “unanticipated crises” for her husband’s failure to pass his ambitious agenda, according to CNN.

“[The President] had so many hopes and plans for things he wanted to do, but every time you turned around, he had to address the problems of the moment,” Biden said.

“He’s just had so many things thrown his way. Who would have ever thought about what happened [with the Supreme Court overturning] Roe v. Wade? Well, maybe we saw it coming, but still we didn’t believe it. The gun violence in this country is absolutely appalling. We didn’t see the war in Ukraine coming.”

She continued: “So many young girls, my own grandchildren included, went up to the Supreme Court and marched. I say, ‘Okay, good for you. But what are you going to do next? You feel good about yourself because you voiced your opinion but what are you going to do next? What is your plan?'”

CNN reported that Biden expressed frustration in her own role as first lady. She was distracted from her own planned agenda by unforeseen developments.

“I was saying to myself, ‘Okay, I was second lady. I worked on community colleges. I worked on military families. I’ve worked on cancer.’ They were supposed to be my areas of focus. But then when we got [in the White House,] I had to be, with all that was happening, the first lady of the moment.”

FLOTUS also blamed Congress: “I know there are so many nay-sayers who say we’ll get slammed in the midterms. Okay. The Republicans are working hard, they stick together, for good or evil. So, we just have to work harder.”

I wonder how Biden’s comments were received by the wealthy DNC donors.

Her remarks are really quite extraordinary. She claims that President Joe Biden hasn’t accomplished anything because he’s had to cope with the same types of unanticipated domestic and foreign events that every world leader in history has had to contend with.

Biden should explain that to former President George W. Bush who, eight months into his presidency, received word that the World Trade Center was under attack. Or to former President Donald Trump, who had to deal with a mysterious new virus originating from China that threatened to kill people throughout the world in unprecedented numbers.

Doesn’t every president or first lady have to deal unexpected events? In fact, isn’t life for every human being on the planet the process of responding to a never-ending string of unpredictable situations?

What administration since former President Bill Clinton has not had to contend with gun violence in America?

They didn’t see the war in Ukraine coming? I am convinced that Russian President Vladimir Putin and every other bad actor in the world were emboldened by her husband’s disastrous decision to abruptly withdraw from Afghanistan. Without alerting our closest allies and against the advice of his military advisers, Biden pulled U.S. troops out of the country. He abandoned hundreds of Americans as well as our Afghan allies, and left behind over $80 billion worth of U.S. military weapons and vehicles. There’s no question that debacle diminished our stature on the world stage.

Almost immediately, Putin began massing troops and military equipment at the Ukrainian border. Informed of the troop buildup by intelligence officials, Biden had nearly six months to work on a strategy to avert Putin’s brutal invasion.

Her husband’s insistence on blaming record gas price on Putin is disingenuous. He declared war on the fossil fuel industry the day he took office. Prices had climbed to prohibitive levels long before the war. Putin’s invasion pushed prices even higher.

As of Monday morning, just 18 percent of Americans think that the country is on the right track. The RealClearPolitics average of presidential job approval polls stands at 38.7 percent. And the majority of Democrats don’t want Biden to run for re-election in 2024.

Maybe Jill Biden ought to sit down.

  1. Dr. Jill is like all the rest of the left. They all talk this way. They get a bit more power and all the stuff you used to never hear, well, they get bold and forget to shield their innermost “feelings”. The left is pretty bold and arrogant. Drunk in power, but terrified of losing. Bad combination.

    As far as “They didn’t see the war in Ukraine coming”, that’s just a bald faced lie. They have been encouraging Ukraine and Russia to do the dance since before Crimea was seized by Russia. And the Biden gang has been stealing everything it could from Ukraine, for years, at the same time. This war is about covering up their crimes as it is anything else.
    Instead of disingenuous, call what Biden said about his blaming gas prices on Russia what it is, another bald faced lie. When someone campaigns on killing fossil fuels, and then does it after stealing his election, you can’t stop at disingenuous when he says it was someone else’s fault.

    As far as I’m concerned, Joe Biden and the entire administration needs to be immediately removed and replaced, immediately after the midterm election. That is, if we have that so-called “Red Wave”. You just can’t rule out another theft. Look at all the damage they have caused in such short a time. Jimmy Carter is laughing his ass off, now that he is no longer the worst Democrat president in American history.
