Host Mika Brzezinski had asked her for her thoughts on the House Oversight Committee investigation into Biden’s corruption allegations, in which Hunter is a major part of.
“How have you been coping personally with the onslaught of accusations against your husband and your family, including and especially Hunter, he’s the focus of a House Oversight Committee hearing holding, holding him in contempt, obsessing over him, showing pictures of him during vulnerable moments in his battle with addiction on the floor of the House, this would crush any family,” Brzezinski asked.
Jill then expressed her grievances over the treatment of Hunter.
In her words, “I think what they are doing to Hunter is cruel, and I’m really proud of how Hunter has rebuilt his life after addiction. I love my son and it’s hurt, it’s hurt my grandchildren, and that’s what I’m so concerned about — that it’s affecting their lives as well.”
As for the first family’s Republican-coined alias, “the Biden crime family,” Jill did not have any defense, other than to laugh and say looking at “what we used to have” was hard.
“And what the other side and the extremists have turned this country into, I mean, we would never see things like that, say, 10 years ago,” she stated.
During the interview, she also discussed her husband’s reelection efforts, suggesting that concerns about his age and fitness to serve are invalid. According to the first lady, Biden’s age is more of an asset.
“He’s wise, he has wisdom, he has experience. He knows every leader on the world stage, he’s lived history, he knows history, he’s thoughtful in his decisions. He is the right man or the right person for the job at this moment in history,” she stated.
Jill’s complaints about House Republicans’ treatment of Hunter comes ahead of a House vote scheduled for next week on whether Hunter should be held in contempt of Congress for refusing to submit to a House subpoena for a closed-door deposition.
Hunter had defied the subpoena right in the front of the Capitol on the same day the deposition was to hold, daring Republican leaders to come get the testimony from him publicly.
