Jesse Kelly rails against emboldened Jill and brittle ‘half-there’ Joe: Am I supposed to enjoy this little sitcom?

The First TV’s Jesse Kelly blasted first lady Jill Biden during a segment on his Thursday evening program as adding to the perception that President Joe Biden appears weak and frail to America’s enemies.

“It matters when the president of the United States looks like a half-there old man,” Kelly began, playing a clip of Biden tripping up the steps to Air Force One before moving on to an appearance the Bidens made before U.S. troops stationed in Europe.

He then played some clips of the Bidens interacting with soldiers — one with Jill saying, “Joe and I are always excited to visit with our troops and their families,” and another showing Joe standing behind her, pointing at and saluting them, which led his wife to admonish jokingly, “Joe, pay attention,” after which the president then offers the first lady a salute.

“Am I supposed to enjoy that little sitcom?” Kelly, a U.S. Marine combat vet, responded. “That moment — the commander-in-chief of the world, standing behind his wife, with a mask on his face, both of them vaccinated, a thousand feet away from anybody else?

“I don’t mean to take a light moment and make it too serious, but again, the wolves are watching,” he continued, a reference to the country’s global competitors. “They’re watching. And why is the president standing behind his wife at the podium anyway?

“What’s his wife doing talking to anybody?” Kelly added, his voice rising. “You weren’t elected to anything! You’re the first lady! Sit in the back and shut up!”

He went on to ask why she was putting photos of herself on Twitter “prepping for the G7” meeting of the world’s biggest economies.

“What are you prepping for? A shopping trip?” Kelly railed. “You’re not the president! No one elected you! And it’s weird. Okay, so why are you doing this? Is this some, ‘I am woman, hear my roar’ thing? Or can the president not handle it himself?”

Kelly then pointed out that Vice President Kamala Harris, meanwhile, is also making foreign trips instead of Biden, referencing her visit last week to Guatemala and Mexico to discuss the migrant border crisis, as well as meeting with and talking to foreign leaders and U.S. allies.

“Who’s in charge? I don’t know. You don’t know. But Joe Biden certainly isn’t,” Kelly, who will take over colleague Buck Sexton’s 6 p.m.- 9 p.m. Premier Network talk radio slot later this month, continued. “We’re going to pay a price for that kind of weakness.”

Kelly said competitors like Russian President Vladimir Putin watch President Biden’s words and actions carefully before playing a clip of the president telling American troops that the “greatest threat” to the world is “global warming,” a view he claimed is also held by members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

“What do you think Vladimir Putin or [Chinese President] Xi Jinping think when they hear the president of the United States talk like that?” he asked. “I know what they think. They are sitting there with their pals and they are belly laughing at us. ‘Look at these suckers! Look at these chumps! Global warming!’

“We can’t do this anymore,” Kelly said.
