Folks’s Gushy Valentine Cowl Story on Joe & Jill Biden Has a Bizarre Hunter Twist
People magazine has a new cover story by Joe & Jill Biden for its February 15th issue (a true Valentine’s Day for liberals). The cover is a syrupy advertisement: “Faith, Family and Finding Strength Together: The President and First Lady on surviving the tragedy, keeping romance alive – after 43 years! – and begin the new chapter of the nation. “
Reporter Sandra Sobieraj Westfall’s questions are her usual puffballs, such as: “You have written [your memoir] Promise me Dad that you both will get stronger and tighter under pressure. We have seen public marriages – especially in politics – collapse under stress. What is your secret? “
Also, “Could you do this job without her?” And, Given the pandemic and economic crisis issues, do you lean in prayer to help guide you?
But towards the end there is a surprise on the last page of the interview:
People: One of the first things you did as president was sign tough new ethical codes for nominees. When father saw the son Hunter [and his business deals in Ukraine and China] Do you go under the microscope, do you also set guard rails for family and friends to avoid the appearance of wrongdoing?
President Biden: We’re going to run like the Obama-Biden administration. Nobody in our family or in our extended family will be involved in any government company or foreign policy. And nobody has an office in this place. You always have access to Pop and Nana, but nobody – I remember an accountant saying years ago, “You know, you can charge fees [the Senate] Some of the gas that you use in your vehicle at home. “And I said no. That’s how I see it: the foul line is 15 feet from the basket. Never bring me closer than 17 feet because it really is.” is a matter of public trust. [Italics mine.]
Dr. Biden: And we have to rebuild that trust in the government.
This is a really unsatisfactory answer if you’re not a people magazine. Much of Jäger’s dealings in Ukraine and China took place during the Obama-Biden administration! You don’t have to have a White House office or be “involved in any politics” to benefit from Biden’s family – sons, sons-in-law, siblings.
But most of the article was bubbly. Inside the magazine, the interview began with a zippy photo of the couple next to the words “WE SHARE EVERY OTHER DREAMS: After a breakneck first 7 days, the President and First Lady become real about their joy, surviving heartbreak – and their determination for the.” To give the nation a fresh start. “In one quote, Biden said:” Other people meditate for me, prayer centers me. “
Four years ago, people shared their Trump inauguration coverage with their excitement for the pink “womens march” with the pussy hat. With the Trump family having a nasty Secrets & Lies cover page in the summer of 2017, people avoided the Trumps for the most part during the last presidency.
