Jill Biden ‘Lashing Out’ At Those Trying To Oust Joe

First lady Jill Biden is said to be lashing out at those who have been calling for her husband, President Joe Biden, to step aside from the presidential campaign and allow a new Democrat to take his place.

ABC News anchor Martha Raddatz said there was backlash in the White House after the president’s interview on Friday with fellow ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos.

She joined Stephanopoulos and said that the president will not get better before the November election.

“No one can stop the clock. And this is about age,” she said. “That’s exactly what that’s about. And this will dominate this campaign. Aging is not like a broken bone — it doesn’t get better. So, there is an opportunity every time he goes out — every time Joe Biden goes out — that he will show his age. I mean, he said he is not more frail. You asked him, you told him, ‘You say, ‘Watch me.” Everyone is watching. And believe me, they are going to be watching even more closely as we go forward.”

“Administration officials I have spoken to said that very tight inner circle is telling them he can win, that he needs to keep going. This, of course, includes his wife, Jill, who they said is lashing out at those who want him to get out of the race,” she said.

The president has been stubborn in his instance that he is staying on as the Democrat nominee since the interview.

The president spoke to the crowd gathered in a middle school on Friday and said he was staying in the campaign for the White House.

“In 2020, you came through for me. I am the nominee of the Democratic Party. I’m the nominee of this party because millions of Democrats like you voted for me in primaries all across America. You voted for me to be your nominee, no one else. You, the votes — the voters, did that,” the president said.

“Despite that, some folks don’t seem to care who they voted for, well guess what? They’re trying to push me out of the race,” he said.

“Let me say this as clearly as I can — I am staying in the race! I will beat Donald Trump! I will beat him again in 2020!” he said, apparently forgetting the year we are in before correcting himself. “ By the way, we will do it again in 2024. I learned long ago when you get knocked down, you get back up.
