Jill Biden took to social media on Tuesday to defend her husband after the country of Afghanistan descended into chaos as he withdrew troops.
Jill used the same exact PR trick that Joe used during his disastrous WH speech.
Deflect, change the subject, and make everyone think you’re a hero by doing the “difficult” thing, not the “stupid” thing.
It’s a massive spin-job, and nobody bought it when Joe tried it, and I doubt the needle will be moved by Jill.
Here’s what she did – she C&P the parts of Joe’s terrible speech, where he turns the disaster that he created into a “difficult hero move” by changing the entire narrative.
But the problem is, this has never been about leaving Afghanistan – it’s about HOW he left, that matters.
Here’s what Jill said:
“My heart is with all the families of those who served and sacrificed in Afghanistan for the last 20 years,” Jill began. She then quoted her husband as she wrote, “As the President said, ‘I cannot – and I will not – ask our troops to fight on endlessly in another country’s civil war – taking casualties, suffering life-shattering injuries, leaving families broken by grief and loss.’”

“If you are hurting today and need to talk to someone, the Military Crisis Line offers free, confidential support, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for service members, veterans, their families, caregivers and survivors. Call 1-800-273-8255 or text 838255,” she continued.

This move from Jill comes as more and more criticism falls on Joe’s shaky old shoulders.
On Monday, Joe spent $30, 000 US tax dollars to take a break from his vacation and head back to the WH to deliver one of the most disastrous speeches in presidential history.
“I stand squarely behind my decision. After 20 years I’ve learned the hard way that there was never a good time to withdraw U.S. forces,” Biden said, according to CNBC. “I am president of the United States of America. The buck stops with me.”
Biden sort of admitted that he had not seen this all coming – even though back in July, he said on video that NONE of what happened, would actually happen.
“The truth is, this did unfold more quickly than we anticipated,” Biden said of the swift offensive carried out by the Taliban.
Despite all the chaos, mess, and people who have died and been abandoned, Biden doesn’t seem to have any regrets.
“I know my decision will be criticized, but I would rather take all that criticism than pass this decision on to a future president,” Biden said.
What a load of malarkey.
Biden then addressed American troops directly, saying, “I want to acknowledge how painful this is to so many of us. The scenes we’re seeing in Afghanistan, they’re gut-wrenching, particularly for our veterans, our diplomats, humanitarian workers, anyone who has spent time on the ground working to support the Afghan people.”
“For those who have lost loved ones in Afghanistan, and for Americans who have fought and served in the country, serve our country in Afghanistan. This is deeply, deeply personal. It is for me as well,” he continued, referring to his late son Beau, who was deployed to Iraq for a year and died of cancer in 2015.
Meanwhile, over 5,000 Americans are still abandoned in Afghanistan, and they’re being told they will only have “limited” help to get out.
