Jill Biden: You'll Have To 'Swallow a Little Bit' With Joe, So We Can Beat Trump
Biden's wife seemingly urges voters to ignore 2020 candidate's gaffes
Dr. Jill Biden has urged voters to consider the "electability" of her husband, former Vice President Joe Biden, ahead of the 2020 Democratic primaries.
Speaking at a bookstore in Manchester, N.H., Jill said that vectors may have to "swallow a little bit" with Joe so they can beat President Donald Trump.
"I know that not all of you are committed to my husband, and I respect that, but I want you to think about your candidate, his or her electability, and who’s going to win this race," Dr. Biden said.
"And so if you're looking at that you've got to look at the polls," Biden said. "If they're consistent and they're consistently saying the same thing, I think you can't dismiss that."
According to tot he former second lady, the party's eventual nominee "just can't have Democrats" to win 2020.
She then stressed that a person must win over independents.
She then highlighted polls in Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania where Biden was leading in matchups against Trump.
"You know we have to include everybody, our party has to be more inclusive, which means we have to go to independents and say 'join us,' we have to go to Republicans and say 'OK, you're a Republican, but you can't tell me that your children are proud of the president, you know, of the things he says and, you know, as a mother or as a father, I mean, how can you be proud of that president as a leader?"
"So yes, you know, your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, healthcare than Joe is, but you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election, and maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, 'OK, I personally like so and so better,' but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump."

Joe Biden just said, “We believe in facts, not truth.” Does anybody really believe he is mentally fit to be president? We are “playing” in a very big and complicated world. Joe doesn’t have a clue!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 10, 2019
Is Biden's wife urging voters to ignore her husband's gaffes?
Earlier this month, Biden continued his series of embarrassing gaffes by saying he was the vice president in 2018 during the Parkland school shooting.
Biden claims he was VP and oversaw the attacks at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that took the lives of 17 people in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018.
According to Bloomberg, Biden said, “those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president.”
However, the Parkland shooting took place long after Biden had left office.
Trump also tweeted Biden was not fit to be president of the United States.
"Joe Biden just said, 'We believe in facts, not truth.' Does anybody really believe he is mentally fit to be president?"
"We are 'playing' in a very big and complicated world. Joe doesn’t have a clue!"
