I reported over the weekend about one of the Jill Biden CNN interview snippets that had been leaked. The complete interview ran Monday evening.
Jill was asked if Joe Biden would take a competence test if he ran again, as Nikki Haley has suggested for all candidates above the age of 75. One would assume that the majority of individuals would have no difficulty with such a test. Until they had an issue, that is. Former President Donald Trump, who has already declared his candidacy, was in favor and even suggested that everyone of all ages take one. Yet when asked if Joe may have one, Jill objected.

Jill Biden stated to CNN journalist Arlette Saenz that it is “ridiculous.” “We would never even discuss something like that,” she said.

“How many 30-year-olds could travel to Poland, get on the train? Go nine more hours, go to Ukraine, meet with President Zelensky?” she said. “So, look at the man. Look what he’s doing. Look what he continues to do each and every day.”
It seems as though they have something to hide. Therefore, they can no longer conceal it, as we see him nearly every day and are thus aware of all his issues. Indeed, we are looking, which is a problem for them, as the RNC pointed out by displaying a footage of Biden snoring during a press conference.
But, this is not the main issue, despite the fact that it is humiliating and weak. The difficulty is what he really says and does, which, as we reported on Monday, tends to be worse, such as getting lost on stage and delivering fantastic tales.
Jill did not assist with the cleanup when she was questioned about the confidential documents and after she discovered their existence. “Probably when the rest of America did,” she claimed.

Probably? Either you did or you didn’t. “We had no idea,” she insisted. “So I think we found out when everybody else did.” The interviewer asked where were the documents found and Jill says they were at the “Biden Penn Center,” reversing the name of the “Penn Biden Canter” and putting Joe’s name first. The interviewer has to remind her that classified documents were also found in their home and asked where were they found there. Jill claimed they were in the garage and that she didn’t even have the “time” to go through those boxes so “we had no idea they were even down there.”
I don’t know who is instructing them to play this crazy defense, but it’s ridiculous. I suppose the problem is that they don’t have a strong defense, so this may be their only option. We’re expected to believe that random individuals placed documents in his office at the Penn Biden Center, in their garage adjacent to his cherished Corvette – he claimed that the materials were secure since they were near his Corvette. And random individuals entered his residence in a place other than the garage and left secret materials. They were collected from several times of his career, including his service in the Senate and as Vice President. He acknowledged that there were 1974-dated documents. Yet, he has no clue how these Senate documents were removed from safe places and transported to his residence. Jill’s argument is unconvincing, and for good reason.
There is also the possible issue of his handwritten notebooks, which were taken by the FBI along with the documents. If they can demonstrate that the notebooks were used to transcribe any of the sensitive papers, even this flimsy argument will be discarded. Providing they perform their duties. As Biden himself disclosed, he possessed information dating back decades, so he cannot only blame a former staffer for boxing up boxes during his tenure as vice president.
CNN would not be CNN if there were no softball upchuck moments. Saenz questioned her over their FaceTime usage. Saenz gushes like a 12-year-old schoolgirl, “Does he call you more, or do you call him more?”
.@ArletteSaenz: How often do you guys face time?
Jill Biden: I don't know, a couple times a day.
Saenz: Even if you're just in D.C. Or when you're traveling?
Biden: I'm traveling, I'm at work. I mean he calls a lot
Saenz: Does he call you more or do you call him more? pic.twitter.com/TrIHvU8r91

This is the information they believe people seek. Hey, CNN, if you want to be taken seriously, you can’t ask cringe-worthy questions that make people want to vomit.
