First lady Dr. Jill Biden decorated the North Lawn of the White House for Valentine’s Day with candy-heart sentiments as a message of hope and healing for Americans.
This simple gesture is a soothing balm for a country recuperating from the four years of Trump administration fuckery.
The Bidens and their two German shepherds, Champ and Major went for an unscheduled stroll to view Dr. Biden’s handiwork, with a pool of reporters and a C-SPAN crew in tow.
Dr. Jill was sensibly dressed for the frigid weather in a long raspberry coat and black boots, and Joe was wearing a black leather jacket and faded jeans. A casually dressed couple, wearing face masks, walking their dogs is the shot of normal behavior that we so desperately need in these troubled times. The fact that this normal couple happens to be the First Couple gives us hope that we may just be able to return to normalcy after four years of chaos.
This heartwarming scene could never have occurred during the Trump administration, the disgraced president didn’t have any pets in the White House, and I doubt he kept any jeans in his closets.
In an interaction with the press the Bidens debated with each other over who loved each other the most. Can you imagine if the Trumps argued about who loved each other the most, the press would break out in laughter.
I’m going to have a terrific Valentine’s Day and a peaceful next four years in the knowledge that Joe and Jill Biden, and Champ and Major are in the White House.
