First Lady Jill Biden came to the rescue during her husband’s catastrophic first year as president, claiming she took on a “healing role” as he grappled with the pandemic, natural disasters, financial upheaval, and a deeply divided nation that appropriately questions his ability to lead.

“I didn’t kind of expect, which was like a healing role, because we’ve faced so much as a nation,” she commented to the Associated Press.​

She made the remarks during an interview in Las Vegas following a trip by the First Couple to visit those who were devastated by the December fire in Louisville, CO where more than 1,000 homes were destroyed. The duo also pushed climate change while they were there.

The first lady, 70, toured Waukesha, WI as well after the Christmas parade massacre where six people were killed including a young boy.

Then she traveled to Kentucky last week after a number of monster tornadoes ripped through five Southern states and killed over 90 people.

Her time seems to be spent going from one tragedy to the next these days. Jill Biden is apparently capitalizing on that fact by publicly pointing out that those visits are a “prime example” of the responsibility she feels as the first lady toward Americans.

“I would want to know that my president and first lady cared about me,” Biden pandered. “I think that’s an important part of what I do. I mean, just helping people through the tough times.”

“I know the tough things that we’ve been through in our life and I know how much the acts of kindness have meant to me and to Joe,” she remarked. “So I just know what a difference it makes when you show up. I think showing up is really important.”

Not everyone believes he proclaimed selflessness.

The interview follows another disastrous poll for the President that came out on Sunday. It showed the majority of Americans believe that the Biden administration hasn’t focused enough on the economy and inflation. Fifty percent claim the president’s first year in office has made them “frustrated,” 49 percent say they are “disappointed,”40 percent say they are “nervous,” and 25 percent contend they are “calm” and “satisfied.”

The poll’s results showed that 58 percent assert that Biden hasn’t paid enough attention to the economy while 65 percent claim that he hasn’t focused on inflation, according to the CBS News/YouGov poll.

A Quinnipiac poll last week showed that Biden had cratered to an all-time low in approval ratings of 33 percent. That’s a 17 point drop from February. It shows rising anger among Americans who are fed up with the pandemic and with not being able to obtain items they need while paying through the teeth for the ones they can currently get.

In a disconnected and what some might call delusional sentiment, Jill Biden referred to the White House as a “magical place” and claimed she wants to be able to take advantage of her position.

“I’ve always said that if I were ever given this platform, I would never waste it. Not one day,” the first lady commented. “That’s why when I wake every day, I think, ’What can I do today? … What am I doing? Where am I going? What’s the strategy? What’s the plan?’”

“It’s going to be an exciting year. It’s got to be a better year with the pandemic,” ​Biden unflinchingly said. “I mean everybody, I think everybody across this country is saying, ‘C’mon, it’s got to be a better year.’”

Many are completely unimpressed by Dr. Jill Biden, instead telling her “Physician, heal thyself:”
