Despite the fact that America is more divided than ever right now, and President Joe Biden’s approval ratings are abysmal at best, his wife Jill Biden is still claiming that his administration will help Americans heal.
Jill made this comment while visiting Waukesha, Wisconsin, where six people were killed earlier this month when Darrell E. Brooks, 39, allegedly plowed through a Christmas parade in a red SUV.
“I think we do that by showing up. And Joe was showing up today in Kentucky,” said Jill, who was accompanied on this trip by second gentleman Doug Emhoff. “Doug and I are showing up here in Waukesha. People are not only, you know, hurt physically, but also emotionally.”
Jill also encouraged those who are facing these tragedies to keep pushing.
“They’ve shown us the resilience and they keep going, they find purpose, and I think that’s the way that you deal with the tragedy,” she told CNN. “You know, look at the (Milwaukee Dancing Grannies), they’ve already been out again. The high school band has already been out again. And I think that’s one way that certainly our family has found to heal.”
Jill was referring to the fact that multiple members of the Milwaukee Dancing Grannies were killed in this tragedy.
“What we saw here today, in the face of this unspeakable tragedy, was this community coming together,” stated Emhoff, who is married to Kamala Harris. “You could really feel nothing to do about politics or anything, it only had to do with this community coming together to help each other get through this.”
“Jill and I are very similar. It’s like we just raise our hand and do what’s needed to help, not only our spouses — we love our spouses, obviously — but it’s really to help the President, the vice president, this entire administration,” he added. “By doing that, if we have to travel all over this country to do that, we’re gonna do that.”
Meanwhile, President Biden was in Kentucky, which was devastated by a massive tornado last week.
“I just want you to know — I’m driving the governor crazy calling him all the time — but there may be things available that would be helpful six weeks, six months from now that you’re unaware of. And so we’re — I’ve instructed my team to make you all aware of everything that is available from a federal level,” Biden said. “Don’t hesitate to ask for anything.”
Many Americans feel that Biden is the last person who would be able to bring our country together right now.
