2020 frontrunner Joe Biden continues to engage in behaviors which cast doubt on his credibility as a presidential candidate. These behaviors include making various gaffes, failing to connect with the progressive wing of his party, and making blatantly untrue statements about President Trump. Recently, Biden attempted to curry favor with the Republican Party by stating that there are an “awful lot” of great GOP members.
Yesterday, Jill Biden spoke out in order to save her husband’s failing campaign and she certainly didn’t do him any favors. According to Jill, Americans should simply “swallow a little,” get over the plethora of issues surrounding Biden, and ultimately vote for him. Fox News reports these statements from Biden’s wife and if she actually believes that what she’s saying is reasonable, she may be crazier than Biden himself.
Reviewing Jill Biden’s Message to Americans
During a speaking event in New Hampshire, Jill pushed the narrative that her husband is the most electable candidate. There was a time where many Democrats might have agreed with her, but Biden’s multiple blunders (conflating poverty with race, mistaking U.S. states, confusing Margaret Thatcher with Theresa May, etc) have caused Democrats to question Biden’s fitness.
Then, Jill went on to state that even though other Democrats are better on policy, voters should still get behind Biden 2020.
In her own words:
“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.”
Then comes the most absurd line of all.
“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.”
Reasons Not to “Swallow a Little Bit”
The arrogance and hubris associated with Jill Biden’s statements are truly something else. What’s actually amazing is that she genuinely believes those remarks will help her husband. If Biden’s campaign isn’t working out for him, that’s his fault.
The truth of the matter is that Biden has failed to win over the progressive wing of his party, he can’t keep his foot out of his mouth, and despite his attempt to curry favor with the Republican Party, he’s certainly not popular amongst the right-wing. Americans do NOT have to “swallow a little bit” and get behind a terrible candidate.
If Joe Biden somehow manages to win his party’s nomination, he will get shredded by President Trump on any debate stage and ultimately lose the 2020 election. Democrats know this and it’s why they’re running scared as their frontrunner continues to crash and burn.
