Dr. Jill Biden, who seems to be doing most of the campaigning for the 2020 Democratic ticket while her husband stays in the basement doing debate prep, spoke with CNN’s Jake Tapper on his “State of the Union” show Sunday. Tapper had the temerity to bring up Joe Biden’s gaffes, and his wife was having none of it — not “after Donald Trump.”
Q: "Your husband has been known to make the occasional gaffe"
Jill Biden: "You can't even go there. After Donald Trump, you cannot even say the word gaffe."
Q: "I can't even say the word gaffe?"
JB: "Nope. Done. It's gone."
Q: "The gaffe issue is over?"
JB: "Over. So over." pic.twitter.com/NV8bAs7TP9

So what would she say to all of us out here who think they’re deliberately keeping Biden in the basement so he doesn’t make any gaffes?
She’s right. We’re beyond gaffes, there’s something seriously wrong with Joe

That settles that, I guess. Who was interviewing whom?

And just like that, it was.
That's the hard hitting journalism we've come to expect from CNN.

Similar response when someone in the media does their job and asks about Hunter’s criminal activity.

Let me rephrase: your husband barely makes sense. How far gone is he really?

Nothing like turning it back on someone else rather than actually acknowledging the fact.

What does the Biden campaign think it doesn’t need to answer any questions? They always respond with aggression, not answers. They’re as bad as the Trump campaign. It’s ridiculous.

Where is Joe?

Debate prep, obviously.
The political gaffe machine.

All they have is “we aren’t Trump”.

Jill, without mentioning Trump or his post as POTUS, what’s up with your husband’s gaffes?

Well, now we know who is in charge.

Why is Jill speaking for her husband ?Joe Biden should be answering these questions.

I think we know the answer.

Wrong. We can still go there. And we do.

We’ll still be covering Biden’s gaffes, even if he wins … especially if he wins.
