Jill And The Advisors' - Former Aide Drops Jill Biden News

Michael LaRosa, who previously served as First Lady Jill Biden’s press secretary, discussed her influence over President Joe Biden during an appearance on "Jesse Watters Primetime" Tuesday evening.

Jill Biden, known for making the Marine Corps Band play a personalized entrance theme akin to "Hail to the Chief," reportedly holds significant sway over her husband's decision regarding his reelection bid. On "Jesse Watters Primetime," host Jesse Watters questioned Michael LaRosa about Jill Biden's role in influencing the president to stay in the race.

“Tell me a little bit about Dr. Jill. We don’t know her the way you know Dr. Jill. She apparently is telling Joe, ‘Stay in,’ and isn’t listening to the press or anyone at all. Why?” Watters asked.

LaRosa recounted Joe Biden’s 1988 presidential campaign, which he ended after it was revealed he had plagiarized a speech from Neil Kinnock, the British Opposition and Labour Party Leader. LaRosa described the plagiarism scandal as “scarring” and a “huge learning lesson” for the couple, highlighting the significant impact it had on their political lives and strategies moving forward.

“One thing that was so interesting about the George Stephanopoulos interview was when he said that if we lose, he would have given it his all. He got a lot of flak for that, right? It reminded me so much of what happened in ‘87 because as soon as he dropped out that same day, he was going into a hearing to chair the board hearings. Jill was with him in the anteroom, and she heard him say something very similar like, ‘Well, at least I can go focus on this hearing now,’ and she cut him off, took him by the shoulders, and said, ‘No, you have to go f-ing win.’ She knew that was sort of the retaliation moment for him,” LaRosa said.

“They learned a long time ago they were not going to let headlines, polls, or pundits push them out ever again. That moment was scarring for them, Jesse. She had never had his character or his integrity attacked before. He had been groomed to run for president for 15 years. He was a great rising hope, and the way that campaign ended was pretty devastating for them. But it was a huge learning lesson in political combat. She’s from Philly like you, so she likes to fight,” he continued.

“Yeah, we love to fight. We like to scrap. And we’ll just do it for fun. We don’t care,” Watters responded. “Did you hear Michael Moore at the top accuse Dr. Jill Biden of elder abuse? What would Dr. Jill say to that?”

“She would say that she hates politics, but she loves him,” LaRosa responded. “He never got in the way of her career, and she wasn’t going to get in the way of his. They just never did that with both of their aspirations. They lived independent professional lives outside of each other’s shadows.”

“So, she would never… this is his decision, you know? Jill, the advisors, his sister, and his family are probably there and giving advice. But Jill alone won’t make this decision, and I don’t know if Democrats really want her to be making the decision for the party. And I don’t think she would want that decision. I don’t think she’s comfortable with it,” LaRosa told Watters.
