(RightWingAmericans.com)- Jill Biden, the woman hoping to replace Melania Trump as the next First Lady, told ABC’s “The View” on Tuesday that she believes a lot of Republicans will be voting for Joe Biden in the November presidential election, suggesting that many in the GOP are “disillusioned” with the president.
There’s a lot to unpack here…
Meghan McCain, the daughter of the late John McCain who famously ran for president with Sarah Palin in 2008, told Jill Biden that “Republicans are very tribal.”
“Trump says that he has a 96% approval rating in the Republican Party,” McCain said. “He’s predicting a big win because of the silent majority, which we know from 2016 does exist. How can you counter what he’s saying?”
Biden responded by suggesting she believes Republicans don’t support the president…despite the polls consistently showing that Republicans do in fact support his leadership and will vote for him in 2020.
“Well, you know, I think, Meghan, I have a little bit of a different slant on it,” she said. “From what I’ve seen, a lot of the Republicans are going to vote for Joe. You know, they’ve been saying it.”
Who? Who has said it? And how many?
“Maybe they’re not saying it publicly,” she continued.
So I guess she’s saying Republicans don’t like Trump they’re just not admitting it. Ok…
“When I was out there on the trail, a lot of people came up to me and said, ‘Jill, I’m a Republican, but I’m going to vote for your husband because he’s a moderate and he’s a steady leader, and we believe in Joe.’”
Wait, Joe Biden is a moderate now? That’s funny, because only recently it was reported that he hired a Bernie Sanders economic adviser who advocates Modern Monetary Theory. What about that is moderate?
Biden then went on to repeat some of the usual campaign talking points, including making vague criticisms of the way President Trump dealt with the pandemic. She ignored, of course, the fact that her husband criticized Trump when he closed the borders to China to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
“So, I think, you know, of course, Trump has his supporters. I think a lot of his supporters have become disillusioned, especially in the way he’s handled this pandemic,” she said.
Is this really the best the Democrats have got?
