A new biography of First Lady Jill Biden only sold 250 copies in its first week of publication, according to a Politico report.
Jill: A Biography of the First Lady was written by AP reporters Julie Pace and Darlene Superville, but it couldn’t interest more than a couple hundred people to buy it after its release on April 19.
The First Lady has had more than her share of propping up by the media, but it doesn’t seem to be doing her much good as a public figure.
Biden is often present when her husband the President speaks and has helped to guide him to the right place or get him away from the podium when he’s speaking out of turn on many occasions.
Taking care of a “doddering” president
It honestly looks like she’s taking care of a doddering old man who isn’t sure where he is half the time, but then, that is exactly what she’s doing.
It’s kind of sad to watch, but she still can’t get any attention from the people even though it’s likely she’s probably running the country at least as much as he is.
It’s also possible that the book isn’t doing well because it lacks any salacious gossip about her life or anyone else’s, for that matter.
For instance, her first husband Bill Stevenson claims that she had an affair with Joe Biden while they were still married and that Jill left him for Biden, but she tells an entirely different story in the biography.
It’s possible people don’t want to hear about things they think are probably lies, and consider Jill’s side of the story pretty boring.
Even more so, though, it seems that most people have just lost interest in Biden’s presidency, and along with it they have lost interest in Jill as well.
We will see in another few months how much this dynamic extends to Democrats as a whole, but recent polling suggests that Democrats will lose a high number of seats in the House and will lose some in the Senate as well.
That’s when Democrats may start to sit up and take notice of what’s happening around them and how their entire party could be slipping away because of their progressive politics.
