Jill Biden Snaps At Reporters Over Questions About Her Husband’s Fitness: ‘Don’t Scream At Me’


First Lady Dr. Jill Biden was caught in a candid and heated moment with a reporter who challenged her ability to manage President Joe Biden while his campaign has plunged into free fall. At one point Ms. Biden can be heard ordering the person to refrain from “screaming” at her.

As soon as she exited a coffee shop, the first lady was pelted with questions about machinations by House Democrats to force President Joe Biden out of the race. Mrs. Biden, 76, dutifully kept her head down and continued moving toward her car until being set off by a benign follow-up question.

“How are you feeling about the state of the race?” asked a female reporter.

“Why are you screaming at me? You know me. Don’t scream at me. Just let me talk,” said a visibly frustrated first lady.


Dr. Biden has taken heat in recent days for insisting that her husband, at the age of 81, is physically and mentally prepared to handle another four years in the White House. During a testy briefing with reporters on Tuesday, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy if Jill Biden is running the country after President Biden becomes less than the best version of himself after 8 p.m.

“Biden says he’s best before 8 p.m., but say the Pentagon picks up an incoming nuke at 11 pm — who do you call? The first lady?” Doocy asked.

“He has a team that lets him know of any, of any news that is pertinent and important to the American people,” KJP coldly replied.


In the days following his disastrous debate against former President Donald Trump, it was widely reported that the first lady and son Hunter Biden cloistered President Biden into family time where they berated his closest aides for failing to protect him from calls to drop out of the race.  According to a report from the New York Times, members of Biden’s family were adamant that he should stay in the race and work to turn things around. First Lady Jill Biden has been a major advocate for her husband’s campaign and has blamed his aides and top advisers for last Thursday’s debate performance.

“Hunter doesn’t trust” his father’s senior aides, one source told the New York Post. “I think Hunter wants to be there, and POTUS isn’t going to say no.”

With increased participation in her husband’s flailing reelection campaign, Mrs. Biden has seen her own popularity decline and has also been saddled with allegations of mistreating her staff. In April a poll found that former First Lady Melania Trump was significantly more popular than Jill Biden at this point in time during her husband’s term. The New York Post also reported that Anthony Bernal, who is considered Jill Biden’s “work husband,” has been accused of sexually harassing White House staff while being insulated from consequences by the first lady.
