Jill Biden: ‘Every Time You Turn Around’ Joe Hit with Another Crisis
'He had so many hopes and plans for things he wanted to do'
First lady Jill Biden told donors that her Husband Joe Biden is being continually hit with problems in front of donors in Nantucket on Saturday while delivering a speech at a fundraiser.
The first lady appeared saddened by what was happening to the world during his presidency.
“He had so many hopes and plans for things he wanted to do," she said.
"But every time you turned around, he had to address the problems of the moment,” she added.
Biden spoke to about two dozen guests at the fundraiser for the Democrat National Committee.
Biden set aside her prepared remarks for a frank discussion.
“He’s just had some many things thrown his way,” she said.
“Who would have ever thought about what happened."
"Roe v Wade? Well, maybe we saw it coming," she added.
"But still we didn’t believe it.”
She also said Biden was unable to predict a war in Ukraine.
“The gun violence in this country is absolutely appalling,” she continued.
“We didn’t see the war in Ukraine coming.”
The first lady complained she expected to work on issues like community colleges, military families, and cancer.
“They were supposed to be my areas of focus," she said.
"But then when we got (there) I had to be, with all that was happening, first lady of the moment,” she said, recalling her trips to Wauseka, Wisconsin, after a man targeted a Christmas parade with his car and her trip to Ukraine to visit the first lady there
But Jill Biden said her husband was the right person to lead the country during these difficult times.
She recalled the 2020 presidential election in stark terms, indicating that those who voted for Trump were “evil.”
Voters who supported her husband, she explained:
“I think they chose him, at least in my mind, maybe yours as well, because it was a choice between good and evil.”
