Jill Biden is trending on Twitter this morning, with lots of celebration of her physical prowess protecting Joe from anti-milk female rowdies.


But what does it say about Joe? Plus, why trash Melania, and why assume that in an actual showdown she would not kick your ass? I think she would! Nothing weak about her. She's got her steely eyes open, scanning the horizon for trouble, and it's not easy to walk around in stilettos and to maintain sullen dignity while married to the biggest character in the world. She's tough. Absolutely no reason to think she is not.

But good for Jill. I still have the question whether Joe, an old man, is physically and mentally sharp enough. If Trump and Melania were in that precise situation, do you think Trump would end up appearing as if Melania had saved her man? Notice that Jill says "It's okay, go ahead," and turns Joe back around to the microphone. She's a step or 2 ahead of him.

Also, did you see that in this clip, he's pinching and rubbing his nose with his hand? Hasn't he heard that we're all supposed to stop touching our face? I want to see leadership! Don't touch your face in the time of coronavirus.

That's DOCTOR Jill Biden to you, peasants!

He's down to woman-level, but that's good enough.

I Have Misplaced My Pants said...

I’m sure you all mean to say DOCTOR JILL BIDEN.

gspencer said...

My take is that she’s as desperate to get into the WH as Plugs; Number One Observatory Circle not good enough for her. She’d get to be First Lady and all that comes with it. She might even take up Jackie’s pill box hats.

Birches said...

All hands on deck to make the Bidens appealing.

tim maguire said...

Jill may have been protecting her man, or she may have been clinging to him for protection. I don't see anything in the video that favors one interpretation over the other. Either way, it shows they have a good supportive relationship, which is nice.

And the gratuitous dig at Melania is what I expect from people like this.

Mal said...

Jill is 9 years younger than Joe. She looks in much better shape - maybe she's stronger than Old Joe. Jill is probably used to running interference for Joe, just like Elaine Chao did for Mitch McConnell.

Good women.

HoodlumDoodlum said...

Let's not milk this incident; these protesters aren't exactly the cream of the crop; scares like this cause a lot of psychic churn...and so on.

Jill reacted correctly but the much more impressive feat was Symone Sanders, a Biden campaign worker (former Bernie spokesperson, in fact) both jumping on the stage and charging across it to hit the second protester who jumped on stage. She had good vision, surprising speed, and excellent commitment to the rush--moved like a solid defensive tackle!

Also: sort the fucking security out, people. I'm not a fan of these Dem candidates but I'm even less of a fan of threats of political violence.

daskol said...

Watching Biden compensate for his mental decline is straight upsetting. He'll lose his place in a speech, and then cover it by saying "Oh you don't want to see me get all riled up." He can read his speech and he can emote only by yelling, but the minute his eyes wander or he tries to just speak, he's lost.

1. Berine will still have more delegates, probably today when CA is done counting and the proportional delegates from all states are assigned
2. It may be reassuring to those who fear socialism and disdain a commie lover like Bernie to see that he is having trouble getting a majority in the Dem Party. However, the DNC and other pillars of the Dem establishment lining up behind an empty suit who's emptier than most, who is literally empty of content and message if you listen to his speeches, is way more sinister than the Crazy Bernie phenomenon. Way creepier.

MadisonMan said...

anti-milk? WTH?

gilbar said...

So; Let me see, if i've got this straight?
Jo Biden is Such a decrepit, demented old coot; that he has to have his Mommy Protect Him?
[no no gilbar, it wasn't his mommy, it was his second wife]
and, does THAT make it better?

WHY didn't he take the milk people out behind the gym? I thought HE was THOUGH?
Why didn't he at least challenge them to do push ups?

His wife isn't a doctor, she's his NURSE

daskol said...

I think less of Jill for standing by her man in this situation. She knows better than anyone he's not up to this. You can see it on her face.

Etienne said...

"you'll never see Melania do that"

You have to laugh at retarded tweets.

Guffaw

Jail is committing elder abuse by not convincing Joe to withdraw

Fernandistein said...

Were they waving pictures of Republican fetuses?

Big Mike said...

Joe Biden does look befuddled, Jill a bit more with it. Sorry, DOCTOR Jill.

I think Donald Trump would toss off some quick remarks like “Put ‘em in the slammer and make sure they get nothing to eat but hamburgers!” The press would then do their usual pearl-clutching about how mean and thoughtless Trump is towards vegan dissenters, only to discover that the whole episode rebounds for Trump’s favor because vegans are obnoxious and no one likes them except other vegans.

Althouse is correct about Melania. Melania is Slovenian, and the protestors would find out what it means to pick a fight with someone born in the Balkans. Slovenians have a thicker veneer of civilization than the Serbs and Croats and the bandits of Crna Gora, but it’s just a veneer.

chickelit said...

Biden isn't boring -- he's mendacious.

Bob Boyd said...

Jill jumped between Joe and the ladies knowing he would go for their hair. She saw him rubbing his nose and that's what put her on high alert.

Ann Althouse said...

"Jail is committing elder abuse by not convincing Joe to withdraw..."

Let's name the baby Jail.

It could be pronounced "Gail."

But, yeah, I agree. I think I've heard Scott Adams use that joke: Letting Joe run is elder abuse.

Bob Boyd said...

Anti-milk protestors that don't show their tits? What a gyp!

Hagar said...

Not a joke.

Danno said...

That Brooklyn dad guy's tweet stream shows he is suffering TDS in a bad way. Hopefully someone will put him down like a rabid dog.

William said...

Wendy Deng, whilst married to Rupert Murdoch, put on an impressive display of cat like reflexes when she jumped out her chair to defend Rupert from a protester. She looked really fierce. Might have been worth a few extra million when they negotiated the divorce settlement....If I were a billionaire, I would marry a woman who was thirty years younger and very fit and lithe. Such women can serve not only as arm bracelets but also as bodyguards.

mockturtle said...

Melania would definitely defend Trump when appropriate but not if it caused him to lose face. I always admired the way Nancy Reagan protected her Ronnie without being too obvious about it.

Much as I dislike Biden, I'd rather see Jill in the role of First Lady than the repulsive Mary Jane O'Meara Sanders. Hoping that the beautiful and elegant Melania will continue to grace our national stage for four more years.

BleachBit-and-Hammers said...

"why trash Melania"?

Because hate fueled hivemind corruption excusing leftists - that's what they do.

rcocean said...

Melania has those steely eyes. I wouldn't cross her. Seriously. She looks like one tough broad under those fashion designer clothes.

rcocean said...

Why are they upset? Unemployed Milk Maids?

hombre said...

Jill was afraid Old Joe would break in half under the onslaught.

rcocean said...

I just hope we don't see Jill helping President Biden up the stairs to meet Putin.

AllenS said...

Jill was afraid Slow Joe would be confused, and agree with the "No Milk for You Crowd."

rcocean said...

You need to understand that a Democrat/liberal meme is that R's are all stuffy puritans who have loveless marriages. So Nixon and Pat were frustrated prudes, unlike vigorous beautiful Jackie-JFK. Barb and Nancy were the butt of jokes because she was a ugly Grandma and nancy was a dragon lady. Laura was supposed to be a secret Liberal who despised her Husband and otherwise was an empty headed hausfrau.

With Melania, its that she secretly hates Trump and suffers under his tyranny.

rcocean said...

Betty Ford escaped all that because she was a drunk, who supported abortion publicly and made it clear she was a social liberal.

Ralph L said...

Joe has to have milk with his CornPops.

Gusty Winds said...

That Brooklyn Dad account is a Trump troll account. That guy is somehow always at the top of any comments on Trump tweets. Whoever is running the account is connected. He's not representative of anything.

Andrew said...

"Watching Biden compensate for his mental decline is straight upsetting. He'll lose his place in a speech, and then cover it by saying "Oh you don't want to see me get all riled up.""

I noticed the same thing last night. Biden does this all the time, and it's getting worse. He interrupts himself when he can't continue his stream of thought. Honestly, it felt like the crowd was enabling him. Like they were encouraging a disabled person to give him confidence. Very sad.

Anyone with their eyes open can tell that he is not up to this task. I have never seen anything so peculiar in my life. The closest comparison would be Bob Dole, but his mind was still sharp; he just looked old compared to Clinton. Biden looks like he wandered in from the hospital next door. Elder abuse is an accurate term. Trump, despite his age, has amazing stamina. There's no way Biden can compete mentally or physically.

Brooklyn Dad is a beta lefty. Read some of his threads. He would have hidden BEHIND Jill Biden. What a wuss...

BleachBit-and-Hammers said...

"lunging vegans "


Perfect.

Calypso Facto said...

Now if Joe could just tell intimidating Dr. Jill apart from his sister ....

BleachBit-and-Hammers said...

I'm glad his daughter was able to save him like that. From lunging vegans.

Browndog said...

Men protect their women. Inherently hardwired. Go to war, battle, and die to protect them and the children.

Unless, you know, libs and soy, and what not.

Psota said...

I guess the Secret service decided to take a step back??

Spiros Pappas said...

If Joe Biden wins, his wife will be de facto President. Mr. Biden is clearly out of it and he needs a caregiver or a protector. That will be his wife. So Mrs. Biden needs to get vetted.

Wince said...

Notice that Jill says "It's okay, go ahead," and turns Joe back around to the microphone. She's a step or 2 ahead of him.

Both Biden and Bernie have wives who act more like "Visiting Angels".

Wilbur said...

"Much as I dislike Biden, I'd rather see Jill in the role of First Lady"

Dammit, that's DOCTOR Jill!!

About these nuts rushing the stage, this shit will stop when one of them gets their clock seriously cleaned by someone on stage. A shot to the nose will produce a lot of blood and hysterical screaming but no permanent damage.

On reflection, some serious harm might be needed to stop it.

Browndog said...

Vice-President Secret Service protection ends 6 months after leaving office.

JAORE said...

Perhaps it was Jill that confronted Corn Pop.

Martin said...

Joe Biden is in early stage Alzheimer's, he needs all the help anyone can give him.

AZ Bob said...

I watched the video. It looks like a lot of nonsense. The people rushing the stage were looking for an opportunity to waive their signs on stage. None of them held a weapon. Much about nothing.

Char Char Binks said...

Jill just wanted to make sure Joe didn't see any other boobs.

Lloyd W. Robertson said...

If Biden is elected, is this going to be another Woodrow Wilson post-stroke situation? The Constitution was amended in order to prevent something like that.

bbkingfish said...

We don't have to guess what Trump would do. Even a loud noise and he would duck and look for someone to hide behind.

For anybody who has dealt with a loved one with dementia, this is heartbreaking. It doesn't get better.

Greg the class traitor said...

But good for Jill. I still have the question whether Joe, an old man, is physically and mentally sharp enough.

Why in the world do you still have any questions? Did you see him flub remembering the preamble of the Declaration of Independence?

The guy's just not there. it's pretty much elder abuse to keep him running. Now, he's a sleazy con-man with a corrupt family, so I'm perfectly fine with him getting abused.

But if you actually want the Democrats to put up a decent candidate, you shouldn't be fine with Joe being in the race

alan markus said...

@ I Callahan "Brooklyn Dad is a beta lefty. Read some of his threads. He would have hidden BEHIND Jill Biden. What a wuss..."

That is why I thinking that if he were rushing Trump, Melania would grab him by the wiener, and squeeze and twist it, until he doubled over and fell to the floor. Too bad I don't do Twitter.

Phidippus said...

Agreed fully with AA's read of Melania. I'd love to see that pencil-neck reporter tangle with her mano a mano.

What could Jill Biden be thinking about? Of course, we often don't see our loved ones the way others do, or maybe she has her eyes on the prize, but to be mistaken for your sister in law? It's cruel to him and embarrassing to everyone else.

She needs to take him home and make him a nice warm cup of non-dairy Ensure.

Drago said...

bbkingfish: "We don't have to guess what Trump would do. Even a loud noise and he would duck and look for someone to hide behind."

The video clearly shows Trump reacting to multiple Secret Service agents sprinting aggressively to him in a way that looked to take him down for cover.

But thanks again for demonstrating how far you and the LLR-lefties will go in mischaracterizing what happens on film.

Tell us more now about how Trump improperly fed fish in Japan with PM Abe while you are at it! (I particularly liked that episode because it only took about 30 minutes for the video proof of the lefty/LLR-lefty lies to be exposed in the most blatant of fashion and thus accelerating the public understanding of MSM rot)

Meade said...

"For anybody who has dealt with a loved one with dementia, this is heartbreaking. It doesn't get better."

Very good point. Bears repeating.

mockturtle said...

Tcrosse observes: For anybody who has dealt with a loved one with dementia, this is heartbreaking. It doesn't get better.

That's why Dem voters will be looking hard at the VP candidate selection.

Darcy said...

Yeah, Jill protected her man from the fierce anti-dairy ladies. But has she protected him from running for president when he is clearly suffering from dementia? No. I despise her because of this. You don't do that to someone you love.

Disclaimer: My mom suffered excruciatingly from dementia until she fell into a somewhat peaceful know-nothingness. The time between the two phases was short. Damn the Biden family.

Darrell said...

Lefties want the dairy industry to disappear because that leads to the veal industry. And they are nuts.

robother said...

"Melania is Slovenian." Yeah, not to be messed with. (As is Klobuchar, just ask her staff.)

Jason said...

This idiot doesn't know Eastern European women.

If Melania is anything like her fellow Slovenian women, she'd have slipped a shiv into these protesters ribs before they knew it and they'd be bleeding out off camera. And she'd look great doing it.

Sebastian said...

"I still have the question whether Joe, an old man, is physically and mentally sharp enough"

You still have the question? Really? I mean, other than straining to stay "neutral," as an "observer," what possible basis could there be for still having the question?

chuck said...

Nothing weak about her.

High heels. I look at those shoes and think she would be the first the lions would take.

There's a major issue: anti-milk.

These Dems are all crazy. I hope the attackers get jail time.

Bay Area Guy said...

Not a fan of Jill (or Joe), but I salute her for fending off these idiotic leftist protesters. Sick of those folks.

Beloved Commenter AReasonableMan said...

The term 'character' is performing a lot of work in this post.

Beach Brutus said...

The Professor discussing the relative fighting merits of Jill and Melania reminds me of the scene in Guarding Tess where the secret service agent is handicapping a fictional boxing match between Tess Carlisle and Nancy Reagan.

Iman said...

Jill Biden is Slow Joe’s Valerie Jarrett.

Iman said...

Those anti-milkies almost had a Malcolm X scenario working there...

Inga said...

“Yeah, Jill protected her man from the fierce anti-dairy ladies. But has she protected him from running for president when he is clearly suffering from dementia? No. I despise her because of this. You don't do that to someone you love.”

Why didn't Melania stop Trump from running if she loved him so much? Clearly he is as cognitively impaired as Biden. It was pretty evident when he was conducting an imaginary orchestra during the National Anthem. If Trump can be President with is own dementia issues, so can Biden.

And a happy covfefe to everyone.

Inga said...

Clearly you're f'ing nuts

Tom T. said...

Trump has joked about this sort of situation. At some fundraiser, he described meeting with Steve Scalise after the shooting and mentioned how Scalise's wife "cried her eyes out when I met her at the hospital that fateful day … I mean not many wives would react that way to tragedy. I know mine wouldn't."

Darcy said...

I'll pass on discussing your delusion, Inga. Hope you are well!

Jim at said...

You'll never see Melania do that.

And if Melania would've done that, that clown would be pointing out how much of a pussy Trump is to have a woman protecting him.

This 'heads I win, tails you lose' bullshit gets old real fast.

Jim at said...

If Trump can be President with is own dementia issues, so can Biden.

So, are you going to cut and paste this stupid crap in every thread?

JaimeRoberto said...

Melania would have frozen them with her icy stare.

But let's face it, when lefties send their protesters up on stage, they're not sending their best. They're sending vegans. Some of them, I suppose, are good people.

You’ve not met many vegans, have you?

Big Mike said...

If you can get that close to a presidential candidate with a sign, then you can get that close to the candidate with a ceramic or polymer knife, or something else dangerous. I’m assuming that metal detectors at the event take care of guns and steel-bladed knives, but you don’t need guns to kill someone. Secret Service needs to up its game.
