Be ready to have your hopes dashed. According to CNN, if Jill Biden has her way, we may get an additional four years of her doddering, enfeebled husband and his society-crushing policies. Whereas she had been against Joe running for reelection in 2024 — she must be exhausted at constantly having to move him into place and shut down his incoherent ramblings — it seems the first lady has had a “tidal shift” in her thinking and is “all in” on four more years of elder abuse. From CNN:
The first lady was still mostly skeptical as of early fall – “not a proponent,” as one person familiar with her thinking told CNN. But in the month since the November midterm elections, in which Democrats defied the fate of most parties of first-term presidents, friends noted a change.
Jill Biden is now “all in” on the idea, according to a person who works with the East Wing.
Where to start with this one? First, he never, ever should have been put forth as a candidate back in 2020, and the blame is squarely on the shoulders of Jill Biden. His frequent appearances from their basement were cringe-inducing — anyone with even a shred of decency had serious, second-hand embarrassment watching him bumble his way through “interviews,” then look off camera expectantly to see if he’d be rewarded with his special pudding treat. She not only allowed her husband to humiliate himself over and over again, she actively encouraged it. She worked hand-in-hand with her fellow, soulless Democrats to take a clearly incapacitated man and put him exactly where he, in his diminished state, shouldn’t be: in power. But power, not wifely duty, is apparently what drives Jill Biden, so here we are.
And it’s not like things improved once Joe became president; Jill Biden’s elder abuse simply moved from their Delaware basement to the White House and the world stage. The consequences of Jill’s actions and ego are very real: the United States is a laughingstock to rest of the world, our economy is in the crapper, a firehose of illegals is streaming across our southern border every day, and Vladimir Putin, who knows Joe Biden is a joke, is playing around with his nuclear arsenal. While her husband mumbles incoherently and wanders around in a daze, Jill stands by and applauds like a mother watching her toddler appear in the preschool Christmas play.
Lest we think Jill Biden lacks the authority to make the monumental decision on whether or not Joe Biden runs again in 2024, there’s this:
The first lady, and she alone, has the full weight of kibosh; she can still stop what seems inevitable in a political calculus if she has concerns about her husband’s age or how another run would affect his legacy or their family.
In other words: what Jill wants, Jill gets. And she clearly wants this carnival act to continue, even though she could — as any good, loving wife would — put her husband’s needs first and put the “kibosh” on any 2024 plans his political handlers are pushing. It seems especially cruel of Jill Biden to deny her husband, a man clearly in need of daily naps and therapeutic recreational activities, the chance to spend his sunset years in retirement. We’ve all earned a Joe Biden retirement, but there’s Jill, clad in her drapery-inspired wardrobe, standing in the way.
