Jill Biden Stars on Vogue Cover, Sparking Outrage From Audience

(RepublicanJournal.org) – President Joe Biden is seeking a second term in office. He recently appeared on the debate stage with former Commander-in-Chief Donald Trump, where he gave a very lackluster performance. Four days after the event, Vogue debuted its new cover online with First Lady Jill Biden as the focus. That move has sparked a lot of controversy.

For the most part, Jill Biden has been seen as a quiet figure by her husband’s side. Yet, as time has gone on, more people have begun to see her as someone vying for power and prestige and in the meantime, hiding her husband’s true condition from the public.

This isn’t the first time the FLOTUS has been on Vogue’s cover, she’s appeared twice before. It’s actually considered a rite of passage for presidents’ wives to grace the magazine — the exception being former First Lady Melania Trump whom the magazine decided not to feature during her tenure. But in a time where Biden’s health and age are the subject of much concern going into the 2024 election, some consider it tone-deaf and attention-seeking behavior.

Emblazoned across the cover, where Mrs. Biden is wearing a tuxedo dress by Ralph Lauren, is the statement “We Will Decide Our Future.” That, too, has also drawn outrage, with voters speaking up and saying they will be the ones to make those decisions. One even said they were “done with [Jill Biden’s] entitlement.”

Some say that the first lady is overshadowing her husband, particularly since he is refusing interviews. Ankler Media editor-in-chief Janice Min said that’s exactly what is creating animosity, when “his wife has her third Vogue cover during an election where voters are saying over and over again it is all about the economy.”

Then, there’s the matter of Vogue’s editor being intricately involved with the Bidens, hosting private fundraisers for the president’s re-election campaign. Voters have made it clear they want the Bidens to focus on issues that everyday Americans face, not on being the face of a magazine, rite of passage, or not.
