On Saturday, when giving a speech at a fundraising event in Nantucket, first lady Jill Biden griped to donors.
Jill Biden, the first lady, talking about her husband, President Biden, looked to be sad about what was going on in the world during his administration.
“He had a lot of aspirations and plans for what he wanted to accomplish, but every time you looked around, he was dealing with the current challenges.”
At a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee, Biden spoke with about two dozen people. She set aside the speech she had prepared.
“He’s just had a lot of things piled on top of him,” she remarked. “Who would have guessed that… the legalization of abortion? Perhaps we saw it coming but still did not believe it.”
At the same time, Biden could not predict the outbreak of a conflict in Ukraine, she added.
“The gun violence in America is truly shocking,” she continued. “We didn’t realize the Ukraine conflict was coming.”
The first lady griped that she had thought she would be working on issues like cancer, community colleges, and military families.
“They were supposed to be my priorities. But then, when we arrived there, I had to be the first lady of the hour, with everything that was going on.” She recalled her Wauseka, Wisconsin trip, after a Christmas parade was targeted by a motorist with his vehicle and her Ukraine trip to pay homage to the first lady there.
Jill Biden stated that her husband was the best candidate to lead the country during these trying times.
She described the 2020 presidential election in stark, even violent, terms, implying that those who voted for Trump were “horrible.”
“I believe they selected him, at the very least in my mind, perhaps yours as well. It was a choice of good or evil.”
