The First Lady Jill Biden is speaking out in a new interview to whine about how Republicans are treating her son Hunter Biden, accusing them of being “cruel.”
While being interviewed by MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, Jill was quick to defend Hunter amidst the onslaught of attacks on him from Republicans.
“I think what they are doing to Hunter is cruel,” she said, according to The Hill. “And I’m really proud of how Hunter has rebuilt his life after addiction.”
“You know, I love my son and it’s had — it’s hurt my grandchildren,” she added. “And that’s what I’m so concerned about, that it’s affecting their lives as well.”
Jill’s interview aired the day after House Republicans voted to advance a contempt of Congress resolution against Hunter, teeing up a full House vote and the potential for criminal charges against the son of the president.
Jill went on to address the frequent Republican attacks on the Biden family, specifically the rhetoric that is used.
“I mean, to look at it, what we used to have, and what the other side, the extremists have turned this country into,” Jill said. “I mean, we would never see things like that, say 10 years ago.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Jill defended her husband Joe Biden from frequent claims that he is too old to be president. He is currently 81 years old, and he would be 86 by the end of his second term if he is reelected, according to Politico. Despite mass fears over this, Jill claims that Joe’s age is an “asset.”
Unfortunately for Jill, however, the bulk of the country disagrees with her. Last August, a Wall Street Journal poll found that 73 percent of registered voters considered Joe to be “too old to run for president.” Joe also ended 2023 with an extremely low 39% approval rating.
Ignoring her husband’s unpopularity, Jill stuck to her guns, claiming it is crucial that he wins this year’s election.
“We have to win. We must win. We cannot let go of our democracy,” Jill said, to which Brzezinski asked, “And if you don’t?”
“I don’t know,” Jill replied. “I can’t think about it.”
Sorry, Jill, but the rest of us can think about it, and there are millions of Americans out there who would love to live in a world where your husband is no longer president!
