“[The President] had so many hopes and plans for things he wanted to do, but every time you turned around, he had to address the problems of the moment”
Speaking to a group of Democrat donors at a private home on Nantucket this weekend, First Lady Jill Biden complained about things that have happened over the last two years that have imposed on her husband’s goals as president.
Cue the world’s smallest violin.
It’s fascinating that Jill Biden has more pity for herself and her husband than the American people who have had to suffer under his policies.
Jill Biden on President Joe Biden’s hindered progress: ‘He had so many hopes’
First lady Jill Biden on Saturday voiced frustration about the stalled progress of President Joe Biden’s tenure in the White House during a private Democratic National Committee fundraiser.
The first lady said during the event in Nantucket, Massachusetts, that her husband has been consistently challenged by unanticipated crises while in office, placing blame on global woes. Biden’s remarks came as the President’s job approval rating stands at 33% according to a recent New York Times and Siena College poll, which also noted just 13% of Americans say the country is heading in the right direction
“[The President] had so many hopes and plans for things he wanted to do, but every time you turned around, he had to address the problems of the moment,” said Biden, speaking to about two dozen attendees at a private home on the popular vacation island off the coast of Massachusetts.
Oh, there were unexpected problems that had to be handled? Welcome to reality. That’s kind of part of the job of the president.
Jill’s hopes as First Lady were also apparently dashed.

Jill Biden talks frustrations at DNC fundraiser: I had to be ‘the first lady of the moment’
She said the president has had to grapple with a range of issues, hindering his ability to focus on other plans and goals, according to CNN.
“He’s just had so many things thrown his way,” Jill Biden said while in Nantucket, Mass., the network reported. “Who would have ever thought about what happened [with the Supreme Court overturning] Roe v. Wade? Well, maybe we saw it coming, but still we didn’t believe it. The gun violence in this country is absolutely appalling. We didn’t see the war in Ukraine coming.”…
Still, Jill Biden revealed that she too had experienced her own challenges as first lady.
“I was saying to myself, ‘OK, I was second lady. I worked on community colleges. I worked on military families. I’ve worked on cancer.’ They were supposed to be my areas of focus. But then when we got [in the White House] I had to be, with all that was happening, the first lady of the moment,” Jill Biden said, CNN reported.
Dana Perino of FOX News was talking to Clay Travis of Outkick yesterday, who made a fascinating observation about Jill’s comments.
They’re in the past tense.
