Election TV: ABC Uses Jill Biden’s New Book to Cheer Biden 2024

News & Politics

Another day, another book tour takes over the networks. This time it was First Lady Dr. Jill Biden on Wednesday’s Good Morning America (GMA), with her latest children’s book Willow the White House Cat. It could have been quite the interview but was nothing more than a cushy campaign booster on Disney owned ABC with Biden taking time to declare the ‘end of Democracy’ if her husband is not elected. 

It is ironic enough that a feminist such as the First Lady could possibly appreciate a focus on her husband during an interview about her work!  At one point, the conversation moved from her book to more political subjects, like the upcoming election:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: It is of course an election year. How do you describe the people watching at home what’s at stake?
DR. JILL BIDEN: Everything is at stake. I think especially for women this year. You know, women’s rights, our freedoms, democracy is on the line. And we have a choice. I mean, this is what I am out there saying, we have a choice. We can have – you know, my husband who is calm and steady and strong and has character and integrity, or we have the other choice, which is chaotic and, I mean, if you just look at what you just reported on — the craziness of it all. So, we have to decide: democracy or chaos?

If it is not yet clear, Dr. Biden seems to be able to campaign better in writing a children’s book and going on GMA to get free publicity, than any one of her husbands gaff-filled ‘speeches’. In other words, she resorted to such ridiculous doomsday claims as can be seen in nearly every other Biden campaign speech

ABC’s treatment of the First Lady, however, is something completely limited to Democratic party members, such as the treatment of Melania Trump throughout her time in the White House. Melania is notably reserved in the area of politics compared to Dr. Biden, yet ABC had no problem pressing the women with inappropriate and pointed questions. Attacking her marriage, and familial relationships, this 2018 interview highlights the blatant double standard used in the media. 

Rewinding to the beginning and it was a gushy back-and-forth about the book centering around a house cat at the White House and how much of the staff that keep the building running smoothly remain, regardless of party.

But the ABC crew really laid it on thick when they asked her about teaching and even thanked her for all she’s done for “women’s health” (click “expand”):

ROBERTS: I know we often talk about how we all have a favorite teacher —
SPENCER: Yeah.
BIDEN: Uh-huh
ROBERTS: — and how they impacted our life. This Saturday we know where you are going to be, Erie County Community College.
BIDEN: College, yes!
ROBERTS: You’re the special commencement speaker, what’s your favorite part about speaking to the next generation of leaders and thinkers?
BIDEN: Well, I know that all of the opportunities that they’re going to have. And you know six out of 10 children don’t go straight to a four-year college, but now they have so many other pathways. And they can — we have career connected learning where they can start in High School, earn College Credits and go into, like, cybersecurity or environmental studies or robotics, so many interesting careers now. Careers of the future and that’s what I think is exciting that people – students just don’t, have to think “oh I just — I need to go to a four year college.” That’s not true anymore.
SPENCER: That is not true and also so passionate about women’s health and we thank you for that.
BIDEN: Oh my gosh.
SPENCER: I know in November you and the President launched the White House Initiative for Women’s Health Research. Talk to me about the progress that you seen made.
BIDEN: I’m so excited about that because there — you know, women’s health has been underfunded and understudied for so long, so I’m sure that many of you have friends, somebody in your family. And women go to the doctors and they come away, they don’t have answers to their questions.
ROBERTS: They don’t.
BIDEN: And so especially for women who are maybe middle age or over, you know, what is menopause? What are hot flashes? Why do I feel this way? You know, why is my hair thinning? Why am I moody? We need answers to these questions.
SPENCER: Yes, we do.
ROBERTS: Yes we do.
[Laughter]
BIDEN: Not getting personal or anything. But now it will change because we are funding the research and I am so excited about it because things will change.

With the books as a hook, it was no surprise the liberal media are gearing up to stream what looks more like a Biden campaign than a real interview. The narrative of a presidential family member writing children’s literature is nothing new as in past years Chelsea Clinton has pervaded media stories with their books and free campaigning. It was almost four years ago that Biden was on air speaking about her book, and vouching for her husband’s place as president.

MICHAEL STRAHAN: We are joined now by First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, here live this morning to talk about her new children’s book, Willow the White House Cat. Dr. Biden, welcome to GMA

DR. JILL BIDEN:Thank you.

STRAHAN: Well, we can — we can give it up. Hey!

[Applause]

BIDEN: Thank you. Thank you.

STRAHAN: This is a great story.  A new story, inspired by real-life events, so tell us about it.

BIDEN: That’s right, so it’s the story of Willow the White House cat how she came from Western Pennsylvania from being in a barn to the White House. And really, it’s kind of a behind-the-scenes, cat’s eye view of what it is like to live in the White House. [Laughter]

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: We were talking about the illustrations, so beautiful! Tell us about working with Kate Berube.

BIDEN: Well, she came to the White House. Of course, she met Willow and she met all the people who worked there who are so warm and welcoming and make the White House a home. And so, she had her tour and she met everybody, so I think she felt right at home like we do and like Willow does.

ROBIN ROBERTS: Of course, it’s a children’s book but really there is really a lesson in there for all of us isn’t there?

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah and it’s that learning can be fun. Reading can be fun.

ROBERTS: Yep.

Biden: So that I hope that you know children enjoy the book. I hope that teachers use it before they come to the White House. Have you been to the  White House?

STRAHAN: Oh yeah.

ROBERTS: [LAUGHS] A time or two.

BIDEN: Okay, alright, I just wanted to make sure that you got to.

[Laughter]

LARA SPENCER: I’d like to come again.

BIDEN: Okay!

STRAHAN: We never had a cat’s eye view.

LARA SPENCER: Willow really does have the best perch.

BIDEN: Yeah.

SPENCER: This is your third children’s book —

BIDEN: Yes.

SPENCER: — Dr. Biden, what is it about writing to kids that is so special to you?

BIDEN: Well, I am an English teacher and I want children to love reading. And I want children to know that reading is fun, learning is fun, and I want, you know, people to know about the White House and the people inside that make it all run because there are almost 100 people there. And they dedicate their lives to making the White House run. And it doesn’t matter whether you are a Republican family or a democratic family. They always make everything so special for us. And for the people who visit there every single day. We have thousands of people come on tours and they make it beautiful. They make the house beautiful for all the people in the United States.

STRAHAN: And you’re so passionate about education.

BIDEN: I am.

STRAHAN: Yes. And you had the first ever teacher of the year State Dinner. And so, with your finger on the pulse of education right now, what are the biggest concerns for teachers and how can we help them?

BIDEN: Well, I think when I talk to teachers and we had that State Dinner which is the highest honor for teachers and it was so filled with joy. The whole night was just magic. And I think that teachers are always sort of thinking about their students. You know a lot of students are dealing with mental health issues. I think a lot of that is due to the pandemic. And so, I think that if we commit probably to acts of kindness each and every day, I try to tell my students that and my own kids and grandkids, it makes such a difference, you know? Just the little smile, maybe a pat, maybe it’s that note, maybe —

STRAHAN: Yeah.

BIDEN: — it’s something to reach out to people to make connections.

ROBERTS: I know we often talk about how we all have a favorite teacher – 

SPENCER: Yeah.

BIDEN: Uh-huh

ROBERTS: — and how they impacted our life. This Saturday we know where you are going to be, Erie County Community College.

BIDEN: College, yes!

ROBERTS: You’re the special commencement speaker, what’s your favorite part about speaking to the next generation of leaders and thinkers?

BIDEN: Well, I know that all of the opportunities that they’re going to have. And you know six out of 10 children don’t go straight to a four-year college, but now they have so many other pathways. And they can – we have career connected learning where they can start in High School, earn College Credits and go into, like, cybersecurity or environmental studies or robotics, so many interesting careers now. Careers of the future and that’s what I think is exciting that people – students just don’t, have to think “oh I just – I need to go to a four year college.” That’s not true anymore. true anymore.

SPENCER: That is not true and also so passionate about women’s health and we thank you for that.

BIDEN: Oh my gosh.

SPENCER: I know in November you and the President launched the White House Initiative for Women’s Health Research. Talk to me about the progress that you seen made.

SPENCER: Yes, we do.

ROBERTS: Yes we do Dr. 

[Laughter]

BIDEN: Not getting personal or anything. But now it will change because we are funding the research and I am so excited about it because things will change.

SPENCER: Yep.,

STEPHANOPOULOS: It is of course an election year. How do you describe the people watching at home what’s at stake?

BIDEN: Oh, my gosh, so — everything is at stake. I think especially for women this year. You know, women’s rights, our freedoms, democracy is on the line. And we have a choice. I mean, this is what I am out there saying, we have a choice. We can have – you know, my husband who is calm and steady and strong and has character and integrity, or we have the other choice, which is chaotic and, I mean, if you just look at what you just reported on — the craziness of it all. So, we have to decide: democracy or chaos?

SPENCER: We also have to celebrate you because you cannot leave here without us all saying Happy Birthday. You have a birthday coming up, a fellow gemini. Come on in there, Seth.

[Cheers and applause]

BIDEN: Oh, my goodness! Thank you! Oh my goodness, thank you!

SPENCER: We can packed those up for you. We just wanted to say have a happy birthday. 

BIDEN: Oh, thank you.

SPENCER: We know you are busy, but we hope you take a moment to celebrate yourself.

BIDEN: Thank you.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Happy birthday.

ROBERTS: Thank you for all that you do.

SPENCER: And congrats on the book! We love Willow!

BIDEN: Thanks!

STRAHAN: Thank you for being here. An absolute — absolute pleasure. And Willow the White House Cat will be available next Tuesday. Best — best — best perspective in the White House – 

SPENCER: Yep!

STRAHAN: — everybody.
