First Lady Jill Biden and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff shared a special moment Tuesday night. The pair of presidential spouses kissed each other on national television as her husband prepared to give his third joint address to Congress in his annual State of the Union.
The passionate peck (which lasted longer than a typical peck) kept the first lady smiling like a 27-year-old Carly Rae Jepsen.
At 80, President Joe Biden is the oldest man ever to occupy the White House and deliver the State of the Union. If he runs again and wins in 2024, the president will be 86 by the end of his second term.
Joe Biden has shown his age ever since he was vice president and struggled on the 2020 campaign trail to shake doubts about his aptitude to serve four years in the Oval Office. He mused about kids listening to “record players” in prime-time debates, forgot what state he was in on more than one occasion, and botched both the Declaration of Independence and the Pledge of Allegiance. Of course, sometimes the president couldn’t even make it through coherent speeches, which Americans witnessed again when they turned on their televisions Tuesday night.
Jill Biden, nine years younger, was always by his side, even though Hunter Biden was calling her an “entitled c–t.” But did she want to be? On the campaign trail in December 2019, Joe nibbled her finger on stage. So sexy.
The unseemly tableau is further made scandalous by the fact that Emhoff is the husband of a vice president known for her affair with a powerful politician that helped advance her career, and in light of the fact that Jill Biden’s ex-husband claims her relationship with Biden began by having an affair. If Biden were a Republican, his wife’s bizarre kiss to another man on national television would no doubt be a source of unending and unseemly speculation by the corporate press, decorum be damned.
