The New York Times appears to be attempting to paint first lady Jill Biden as America’s savior, claiming that she “isn’t standing on the sidelines” when it comes to fighting for the soul of the nation and unifying Americans.
“Eight months into Biden’s presidency, both he and the first lady are finding that winning the ‘battle for the soul of the nation’ may be his most elusive campaign promise. Trying to prove it’s still possible, Dr. Jill Biden isn’t standing on the sidelines,” the leftist media outlet proclaimed.
The New York Times opined that this summer had been really hard on President Biden:
“The summer was a rough one for President Biden. Another pandemic surge prompted Mr. Biden, a veteran moderate, to attack Republican governors and embrace vaccine mandates. A bipartisan infrastructure deal hung in the balance. The American withdrawal from Afghanistan, during which 13 service members were killed in a terrorist attack, was criticized as violent and haphazard.”
And the first lady felt his pain. “I love him, and it’s hurtful,” Jill Biden told the Times in an interview. “I do feel the sting of it. I wouldn’t be a good partner if I didn’t.”
After lengthily covering Jill Biden’s history and glowingly painting her as an icon, the media outlet turned to a divided America.
“Despite pleas from the Bidens for Americans to overcome their differences during a devastating pandemic, there is evidence everywhere that the country is no more united than it was when Mr. Biden took office: As Dr. Biden graded a stack of essays in her plane cabin on Wednesday, her TV was tuned to a CNN report that said more than half of Americans believe democracy is under attack,” the publication reported seemingly insinuating that it is Americans’ fault that the country is in disarray under the Biden administration.
The Times then noted how awful it is that obscenity-laden signs are seen along motorcade routes for President Biden. They even played up the claim that the first lady had physically put herself between the president and violent detractors.
The piece went on and on about everything Jill Biden. It actually appeared to be more of a propaganda puff-piece than an interview and it rehashed all the reporting concerning the first lady immediately before and after Joe Biden’s election.
One commenter on Twitter went so far as to ask, “Did Jill Biden write this?”

Many believe that Jill Biden controls her husband to a certain degree and is the actual power behind his title. The piece by the New York Times seems to intimate that she will be the one to save America in her husband’s stead, giving credence to that assertion.
The positioning for Jill Biden comes after a poll conducted by Fox News indicates that the majority of Americans feel the country is less united since Biden took office.

Jill Biden is now in damage control mode after the bloody Afghanistan withdrawal that left 13 U.S. service members dead, a botched drone strike that killed an innocent Afghan family, the exploding crisis at the border, France pulling its ambassador because it was left out of a nuclear submarine deal, the FDA nixing Biden’s touted booster vaccine plan, and a myriad of other political catastrophes that President Biden has been responsible for.
Americans can agree on one thing… President Biden has massively divided the country and they are not impressed with his significant other:
Where does abandoning Americans behind terrorist lines figure into the "battle for the soul of the nation"? https://t.co/KK06k72WDZ

It’s just such a shame Joe Biden can’t win the soul of the nation by running away from the disasters he created.

Joe Biden has been batting for soul of half of America at the behest of the other half. He’s derisive, divisive, and polarizing. Nothing like he campaigned to be.

It's not particularly unifying when you scapegoat a large segment of the population for being responsible for the continued spread of the virus. https://t.co/W5mYfZpGGc

Incredible how every time the WH is occupied by a Dem, the 'adversarial' media just goes into full ass-kissing mode with no shame whatsoever. https://t.co/0j1Y7KmNP7

The Bidens have already lost the “battle for the soul of the nation.” According to polls, the USA is more divided under Biden than Trump.
The ‘great uniter’ is actually the great divider. Biden’s lost the middle already. Dr. Jill will accelerate such divisions, not placate them. https://t.co/QV7FQLvOww

LOL, “battle for the soul of the nation”. The guy who left US citizens & allies stranded in Afghanistan, who invites thousands of Hispanic migrants who’ll depress low-income wages because they’ll vote Dem, but denies Haitians & Cubans who may not, is the moral standard?
