In a fawning NBC interview released Friday, First Lady Jill Biden declared that stepson Hunter is innocent despite the FBI having reportedly obtained enough information to charge him with multiple crimes. Hunter is many things, but one thing he is not is innocent, as anyone who’s read about his laptop from hell knows.
That infamous computer, left at a repair shop by the drug-addled son of the president, revealed the 52-year-old’s obsession with pornography and his love of booze, prostitutes, and crack. It also revealed numerous emails regarding shady financial transactions, with some referring to the “Big Guy,” which many interpret to mean Joe Biden.
But Jill is apparently not concerned:
“Everybody and their brother has investigated Hunter,” she said in her East Wing office. “They keep at it, and at it, and at it. I know that Hunter is innocent. I love my son, and I will keep looking forward.”
FIRST LADY: "I know hunter is innocent!"

The president has also expressed his support for Hunter, telling CNN’s Jake Tapper earlier this month:
I have great confidence in my son.
I love him and he’s on the straight and narrow and he has been for a couple years now. And I’m just so proud of him.
Hunter hasn’t always reciprocated Jill’s kindness. While he was dating his late brother Beau’s widow, Hallie Biden (which is indescribably creepy, let’s just say it), Hunter fired off nasty texts:
F–k my stepmother for always being as much of a selfish silly entitled c–t as you.
In another text to his uncle, James Biden, Hunter wrote that his stepmom was a “f–king moron, a vindictive moron.” Doesn’t sound that innocent to me.
The rest of the interview paints the First Lady in glowing terms, with the writers gushing, “macarons and fresh-baked cookies awaited reporters who arrived for this interview.” Did Melania Trump ever get treatment like this? They go on to describe how she’s deeply involved with White House decision-making and is a dogged protector of the president. When you’re finished with the interview, you can’t escape the distinct conclusion that she—and not her husband—is running the show:
The country hasn’t seen a first lady quite like the 71-year-old Jill Biden. She’s reinvented the role by holding down a day job at a community college in northern Virginia while also functioning as a traditional first lady whose portfolio includes military families, health care and education. Less visible is her behind-the-scenes role as a presidential adviser.
She is also adept at subtly steering her loquacious husband back on track or on schedule. She’ll gently grab his elbow when he’s lingering too long with reporters or guests and making them late. If he’s gone off on a tangent in a meeting, she’ll place her hand on his knee to bring him back to the point of the discussion, White House aides noted.
Although the authors describe her behavior as “subtly steering her loquacious husband back on track or on schedule,” RedState’s Sister Toldjah reports differently:
…a new report from the New York Times which detailed how the First Lady was stepping in for her husband in key battleground races contained new information as to the depths she goes through to control not just Biden but also his infamous handlers, the ones who are charged with aggressively herding the press away from him, cleaning up his rhetorical messes, and who also work hard at limiting his public appearances so as to avoid any more embarrassing gaffes.
To me, Jill has looked increasingly exasperated in the last few months as Joe’s decline has hastened, with him often stumbling around in confusion at the end of events and blurting out incomprehensible sentences. Last month, she had to literally shove him off the stage. She also ripped into her staff in January for failing to get her husband to stop talking to reporters. She’s that terrified he’ll say something unintelligible.

As to whether or not Biden will run again in 2024, the First Lady isn’t telling. However, NBC reports that she has signaled privately to Democrats that she wants him to. If so, the question will be: who are we really getting in office, Joe or Jill?
Some would commend Jill Biden for supporting Joe and Hunter Biden; after all, they’re her husband and stepson respectively. The truth, however, is that she’s an enabler, and continuing to prop up a frail old man and encourage him to run again is bad for the nation as he drives the U.S. into the ground. Her defense of Hunter, meanwhile, just comes across as brainless; she could support him without saying something as ludicrous as “he’s innocent.” Nobody believes that and if Republicans win the House in November, they’ll surely investigate and we’ll hopefully find out.
Comments like that would surely get her booed by this crowd:
