The optics on this are terrible.
According to a report from The Daily Wire, while First Lady Dr. Jill Biden was visiting war torn Ukraine —on Mother’s Day —President Joe Biden was working on his golf swing, hitting the links with his brother Jimmy.
From The Daily Wire…
A reporter covering the president’s weekend visit to his home in Wilmington, Delaware, chronicled Biden’s golf trip.
“Pool joined the president’s motorcade near the Biden residence at 3:22pm ET,” Los Angeles Times reporter Courtney Subramanian said in a pool report. “Pool arrived at the Fieldstone Golf Club at 3:29 pm ET. Pool has not seen POTUS today. We’re headed to the hold location.”
Later, she wrote: “POTUS is golfing with his brother Jimmy, per the WH.”
Meanwhile, across the world and in a literal war zone, First Lady Jill Biden was doing Joe’s job.
“I wanted to come on Mother’s Day,” Biden told Ukrainian First Lady Olena Zelenska. “I thought it was important to show the Ukrainian people that this war has to stop and this war has been brutal and that the people of the United States stand with the people of Ukraine.”
According to Fox News, “The two first ladies met in a small classroom in front of reporters before meeting in private. Zelenska and her children have remained in an undisclosed location due to safety concerns as Moscow made it a priority early in the invasion to try and assassinate Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his family. ”
No word on how Joe’s golf game went.
