Jill Biden: Other Candidates Might Be Better But You Have To Vote For Joe Biden

During an interview, Presidential candidate Joe Biden's wife, Jill Biden, took an odd approach when explaining why Democratic voters should vote for her husband instead of the other candidates.
Jill Biden urged voters to not look at what the candidates are proposing for our country but instead whether or not they can beat President Trump.
“I know that not all of you are committed to my husband, and I respect that,” Jill Biden said during a campaign event in Nashua, N.H. “But I want you to think about your candidate, his or her electability, and who’s going to win this race.”
“Your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, health care, than Joe is,” she added. “But you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election. And maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, ‘OK, I personally like so and so better,’ but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.”
She continued: “So I think if your goal — I know my goal — is to beat Donald Trump, we have to have someone who can beat him.”

It seems as the 2020 election gets closer, Jill Biden along with the rest of the Democratic candidates are running on, "we have to beat Trump" instead of offering ideas of what they are going to do to make America a better place.
Joe Biden has been his worst enemy since he announced he would be running for President. Shortly after he announced, the former Vice President was met with several sexual harassment allegations from multiple women claiming that he had touched them and "sniffed" them in inappropriate ways.
Biden has also suffered from his own gaffes.
One gaffe came when Biden was talking to a crowd and said that "poor kids are just as bright as white kids."
“We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented, as white kids.” He quickly added, “Wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids, no I really mean it, but think how we think about it.”
One of the most entertaining gaffes came when Biden said "we choose truth over facts."
“Everybody knows who Donald Trump is. Even his supporters know who he is. We got to let him know who we are. We choose unity over division,” he said. "We choose science over fiction; we choose truth over facts."
It doesn't stop there. Recently, Biden made the claim that he was Vice President during the Parkland shooting which took place in 2018. Biden was out of office in January of 2017.
Biden said to reporters that “those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president.”
The Biden campaign is having a rough time covering for the former Vice President's gaffes so they are now blaming the media, not him.
“This is a press narrative, not a voter narrative,” Biden's campaign spokeswoman Symone Sanders said. “If you were to look at the coverage in Iowa this weekend and juxtapose the local newspapers and local television coverage to national media coverage you would have thought these reporters were at two different events.”
She then said the media should “elevate the conversation” in relation to the election instead of reporting things that do “not matter.”
“We cannot allow this election to devolve in a tit for tat over name-calling and ‘gaffes,’ something that does not matter,” Sanders added. “This is not something that’s registering with the American people.”
