Do you know that Politico Mag article we told you about on Friday titled, “The Rise and Fall of the Star White House Reporter”? Well, there’s something REALLY funny in we missed the first go-round. In case you missed it, here it is again:

But Gov. Ron DeSantis spox Christina Pushaw DID NOT miss it. Check out this excerpt:
“A newly released biography about Jill Biden, by two well-respected Associated Press journalists, sold just 250 units in its first week, according to the company.

This is legit ROFL funny. From Politico:
NPD BookScan, which tracks book sales in the U.S., said that prominent books about Trump released in his first two years of office outsold Biden books during his first year and a half by, what an official there said was, “essentially 10:1.” A newly released biography about Jill Biden, by two well-respected Associated Press journalists, sold just 250 units in its first week, according to the company.

This IS pretty humiliating, for the journos AND for Jill Biden:
How humiliating. Jill Biden’s biography only sold 250 copies it's first week. It blows my mind considering her husband is the most popular president in American history.

But it’s even worse than that. Everyone has been bending over backward to promote the hell out of the book. Barnes and Noble, for example:

And co-author Julie Pace was on CNN, too:

As did Vanity Fair:
Jill: A Biography of the First Lady charts the story of Jill becoming a mother to Beau, Hunter, and Ashley, and breaking barriers with her decision to work outside the White House. https://t.co/FWxw6fK7HY

You know, media bias is also giving these authors preferential treatment just because THEY like this First Lady:
"Well respected" journalists. 😆 https://t.co/97Eg1sEPJz
