First Lady Jill Biden defended her husband’s disastrous presidency during a recent interview with Real Simple Magazine; saying he’s doing a great job despite a looming recession and red-hot inflation. “Pocketbook issues are bearing down on middle- and working-class families—inflation, gas prices, healthcare debt, the baby formula shortage. What do you say to a parent who's worried about all that, on top of gun violence in schools and the war in Ukraine?” asked the writer. “It's a tough time in history. And Joe and I see that. I think that's the reason he was elected. He's steady, he's strong, he has wisdom, he knows politics, and he knows where he wants to take the country. Sometimes it feels like we're pushing this boulder up the hill, but progress is being made. Joe's been in office for, what, 18 months now? And everybody has access to vaccines. We got the schools reopened—thank God we all got off Zoom—we got health care, we got money for broadband so underserved kids can have internet. I don't want to sound like a political ad, but we have done so much. Gas prices are a huge issue, and Joe is, every single day, on the phone talking to leaders about gas and oil. These problems are coming so fast and furious, and certainly a lot of it is dark, like you said. But I wish people could see more of what Joe has accomplished and how hard he's working,” said the First Lady. Read the full interview here.
