A new report from the New York Times shares insight into the day-to-day operations of the White House and the decision-making process from the Office of the President – and how Jill Biden may be a big player behind the scenes.
According to a Times conversation with professor Lauren A. Wright, Jill Biden, “…has become completely intertwined with the political efforts of the West Wing…”
She said, “This role has become so serious and political. It must be part of the strategic White House planning and effort. Otherwise, you’re wasting opportunities.”
The Times even framed Jill Biden as the better orator of the couple, “Compared with her husband, Dr. Biden is the more disciplined communicator.”
Writers point toward the overall “protectiveness” of Jill Biden over President Joe Biden, especially regarding interactions with the public or the media.
“She is incredibly protective of Mr. Biden, and has been involved in the hiring of his press staff and other senior aides. (She vetted Jen Psaki, Mr. Biden’s first press secretary, alongside her husband.) She has been direct when she believes they have not protected him: After Mr. Biden delivered a nearly two-hour news conference in January, members of his senior staff were rehashing the appearance in the Treaty Room when the first lady appeared.
She pointedly asked the group, which included the president, why nobody stepped in to stop it, according to a person who was in the room. Where was the person, she demanded, who was supposed to end the news conference?”
Stacey Matthews (aka Sister Toldjah) pointed out in a Red State article covering the Times report that while Jill’s actions may be perceived as endearing, it’s a bit strange for the Commander in Chief to require such handholding,
“In a normal situation, a woman stepping in to protect and defend her aging husband, to make sure he’s not taken advantage of or made to look bad is not a big deal. There are female caregivers all across America who do just that every day with their spouses, and that’s okay.
But this is not a normal situation we’re talking about there. Joe Biden is the President of the United States, a position in which projecting strength and demonstrating the ability to communicate coherently and make your own decisions is paramount to your success here at home and abroad as well as with your international foes, who though they may not respect whoever the president is at any given time do respect strength.”
President Joe Biden’s personal struggles have been well documented by the writers at Rogue Review. The ability for Joe Biden to act on his own accord is essential to the question of whether Joe Biden will run for re-election in 2024.
