Jill Biden tells The View voters will ‘choose good over evil’ and back Joe: First lady dismisses ominous polls, says it’s Trump who ‘can’t string a sentence together’


Jill Biden offered a fiery defense of her husband’s presidency in an interview with The View on Wednesday, warning voters that the choice between Joe Biden and Donald Trump is a choice between ‘good and evil.’

She repeatedly referred to the former president as a would-be dictator whose election would cause bloodshed and predicted that the Supreme Court would be stacked with Republicans who would take away women’s rights, gay rights and voting rights.

«We can’t take things for granted,» she said. “Think of the Supreme Court, for God’s sake, talk about things getting worse. Can you imagine putting more Republicans on the Supreme Court? We will lose all our rights.’

In the interview, Biden also stood up for protesters on college campuses, expressed confidence the president’s polling numbers would rise and dismissed concerns about her 81-year-old husband, saying he and Trump were «basically the same age.»

The first lady was on the daytime talk show to talk about her upcoming children’s book: ‘Willow the White House Cat.’

But most of the questions related to the November elections. Jill Biden, who raised money and ran the campaign for her husband, emerged as his staunchest defender, deflecting questions about his age, the upcoming debates and his declining poll numbers against Trump.

Jill Biden, who is doing press for her upcoming children’s book, used airtime to praise Joe Biden’s character while taking a jab at Donald Trump.

«This election is not about age because like — I mean, Donald Trump is going to be 78. And Joe is 81. They’re basically the same age,» the first lady said.

“This election is about character. So you have two options. You have my husband, Joe, who you all know is of integrity, he is strong, he is steady, he is a leader. He is smart. He’s energetic or you have chaos.’

She dismissed questions about whether Trump would take over the upcoming presidential debate as he repeatedly interrupted Biden four years ago.

She noted that measures were taken by both campaigns to prevent this from happening.

«They’re going to turn off the mics so nobody can go around or yell at anybody, you know, not that my husband would do that, so it’s already negotiated.»

She said Americans need to see the two candidates on stage against each other.

“I think the American people deserve a debate because you have to see your choices. You’ve got to see Trump and you’ve got to see the president and you’ve got to see the differences and my husband — and you see how smart he is and how experienced he is and then you see someone who’s like you say, I’m going to use Joy (Behar’s) words, I can’t put a sentence together.»

She argued that the president will justify himself in the polls. Biden trails Trump in many key battlegrounds that will decide the election.

Jill Biden said the president’s re-election campaign will take nothing for granted, calling Trump a «bad» choice in November.

“We’re going to go to college campuses and go to every state we can get to. I traveled every day. Joe traveled as much as possible and we will not take anything for granted,” she said.

«These polls will turn around, I’m sure, because as time goes on and people start to focus a little more on what’s at stake and start to educate themselves on the issues and the differences between these two men, I believe the American people will vote good from evil.’

The first lady also warned that there could be violence and bloodshed in the country if Trump wins in November.

«You have to believe him when he uses words like dictator, bloodshed, third period, violence, we’ve seen it, so when he says those words, believe him.» Don’t think it won’t happen,” she said.

Biden, who teaches English at Northern Virginia Community College, has defended Gaza protesters on college campuses, but said he thinks the protests should be peaceful.

«People have the right to protest. This is why we have a democracy. Thank God we live in a democracy, but I think protests must be peaceful,” she said.

“Why would we be violent? What is the point of the violence? Are they really not protesting with violence? It makes no sense.»

“I think especially for women this year, women’s rights, our freedoms. Democracy is at risk,» she said when asked about President Joe Biden’s campaign against Donald Trump.

She argued that voters could choose between the steady presence of her husband or the chaos of Trump.

«We have a choice. We can have my husband who is calm and composed and strong and has character and integrity or we have the second option who is chaotic,” she said. «We have to make a decision. Democracy or chaos.’
