Donald and Melania Trump were infamous for their PDA’s (Public Displays of Animosity: the countless times Melania swatted away her husband’s disgusting tiny hands, the frozen stares between the couple, the several times Trump failed to cover Melania with his umbrella …
You don’t have to be a political scientist or a marriage counselor to discern that the Trump’s marriage isn’t a romantic fairy tale but a marriage of convenience. Sparks will rarely fly between a trophy wife and her doddering old husband.
Joe and Jill Biden are infamous for their PDA’s (Public Displays of Affection). Since Inauguration Day, the first couple hasn’t been shy about expressing the love they have for each other.
Joe Biden has been rightly criticized for being too handsy with the spouses and female children of politicians, but at least he’s also very affectionate with his wife of 43 years.
Whether it’s a tender kiss before boarding Marine One or holding hands as they walk their dogs, the love and affection between the Bidens is an expression of their sincere love and it’s a wonder to behold.
The PDA’s between President Biden and Dr. Biden aren’t ostentatious or gratuitous, but heartwarming. They don’t make us cringe, instead they make us smile at delightful display of an elderly couple still in love with each other.
I wish the Bidens a happy Valentine’s Day.
