Jill Biden: People Feel like ‘They Can Breathe’ after Trump
Biden took the opportunity to trash Trump at event
First Lady Jill Biden blasted President Donald Trump by claiming that people have come up to her saying “I feel like I can breathe" after he left office.
During a glitzy Hollywood fundraiser on Friday thrown by Democratic mega-donor Haim Saban and his wife, Cheryl, Biden took the opportunity to trash Trump.
The event was intended to raise money for Democratic National Committee’s Democratic Grassroots Victory Fund.
Oh, and the prices of the tickets were not for the average American.
$1,000 per person and going as high as a whopping $36,500 shows you who is in attendance.

“Thank god we won, because if you think of what went on on January 6, and if you think, ‘What if we were living with that president today?’
People keep coming up to me now and saying ‘I feel like I can breathe.’”
In her address to the donors assembled on Friday evening, Jill Biden brought up the January 6 riot at the Capitol in order to take a swipe at Trump.
“If you think of what went on January 6, and if we were living with that kind of president today — it’s like you can’t even let your head go there,” she reportedly said.

“And then once we were elected, people came up to me all the time, everywhere I went, and said, ‘Jill, I feel like I can breathe,’” she said.
The same day, the Bidens attended another fundraiser in Brentwood hosted by Andrew Hauptman and Ellen Bronfman Hauptman, and co-hosted by former Disney and Dreamworks boss Jeffrey Katzenberg.
Biden’s hobnobbing with Hollywood elite comes as inflation hit a new high in May with prices soaring a stunning 8.6 percent.
The current soaring inflation defies the prevailing media narrative that inflation had cooled off a bit.
In a statement sent to Deadline, Katzenberg said:
“The money raised today will help get people to the polls on election day in November."
"Just the idea of Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell in charge should be enough to get people out to vote.”
