First Lady Jill Biden is reportedly very upset with those pressuring President Joe Biden to withdraw from his re-election campaign after his challenging debate performance against former President Donald Trump last week. According to ABC News host Martha Raddatz, sources within the White House have indicated that President Biden’s close inner circle continues to support his campaign, asserting that he can win as long as he persists. “This, of course, includes his wife Jill, who they said is lashing out at those who want him to get out of the race,” she added.

According to reports, Biden’s family is taking steps to strengthen their control over his campaign and administration. This move is aimed at sidelining those within the ranks who have been leaking information to the media and allegedly attempting to undermine the president in the run-up to the party’s convention. “The debate fiasco has opened up a lane for the family to surpass staff and start helping out their father and brother who they love dearly,” a source close to the family told NBC News. Jill and Hunter Biden are said to be the main driving force keeping the president from dropping out of the presidential race.

“I believe the family has witnessed blunder after blunder by key staff personnel, and the debate is likely the straw that broke the camel’s back,” the source told NBC News. “Post-debate, the supposed loyal staff, instead of taking responsibility, pointed the finger back at the president and said: ‘His fault.’ I can think of no other singular action that would agitate the Biden family more.”

On CNN’s “Laura Coates Live,” commentator Scott Jennings criticized Democratic governors last week for their continued support of Biden, labeling them as “complicit” in what he termed the “biggest cover up” concerning Biden’s mental fitness. The discussion followed calls from some Democrats for Biden to step down as the party’s nominee after a disappointing debate performance.

Jennings highlighted the limited support from Biden’s immediate circle, while CNN host Laura Coates noted that 23 Democratic governors had shown their support by joining Biden at the White House on Wednesday.

“Once again, behind closed doors, Joe Biden rides unicycles and juggles knives — he looks real good behind closed doors! Let me tell you that‘s what we‘ve been hearing for three-and-a-half years. These governors are now participants in the biggest cover up in American political history,” said Jennings.

“The condition of Joe Biden has been hidden from us for three-and-a-half years, now these governors are complicit in it. We all saw with our own eyes Thursday night. We don‘t need governors to tell us behind closed doors he’s fine. I saw what I saw, and so did every other American,” Jennings added.

Prior to discussing the governors’ support, Jennings noted that the Trump campaign has remained silent on the topic, suggesting that this silence is strategically advantageous for them: “They’re doing exactly what they need to do, which is nothing. He’s running — Of his three campaigns, this is the best managed, best run campaign and it‘s obvious to me he wants to win.

“The way he conducted himself at the debate, the way he‘s handled the last few weeks. Remember coming out of that conviction in New York to right now has been the strongest period for Donald Trump‘s campaign,” Jennings continued. “He‘s got a cash infusion. He’s way up in the polls — the polls you showed tonight. I mean, if he wins the national popular vote by five or six points, you‘re talking about the house going bye-bye for Democrats, you‘re talking about Joe Biden dragging down maybe seven Senate seats we‘re in landslide territory if these polls hold.

“So Donald Trump is doing exactly what he needs to do and I don‘t have much to say beyond listening to Julie plead for the White House to do something. Except one thing, they [Democrats] don‘t have a messaging problem, they have a candidate problem,” he noted further. “Most Democrats seem to know that, the only people that don‘t know it are the Biden family. You got Jill Biden on the cover of Vogue, you got Hunter Biden now running White House senior staff meetings, apparently. I mean, it seems to me you‘re gonna have to drag these people out of the White House by the fingernails, Julie, I‘m sorry to tell you.”
