Jill Biden spoke with Jake Tapper in an interview that aired during CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday and dodged a potential question regarding her husband’s gaffes, declaring “you cannot even go there,” Swamp Drain reported.
Donald Trump Jr. reacted Monday on “Fox & Friends”, calling Jill Biden’s statement “absolutely asinine”, adding, “The media will carry their water for [Joe Biden] and let him get away it, just like Jake Tapper did.”
“Your husband has been known to make the occasional gaffe,” Tapper said, referring to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
“You cannot even go there. After Donald Trump, you cannot even say the word ‘gaffe,’” Jill Biden interjected.
“I can’t even say the word gaffe?” Tapper asked, which prompted Jill Biden to defend her husband, saying, “Nope. Done, it’s gone.”
“The gaffe issue is over because…”, Tapper responded, to which Jill Biden said, “Over. So over.” Continued Below
Asked what he makes of Jill Biden dodging the question and Jake Tapper moving on, Donald Trump Jr. responded, “You can’t talk about it with Joe Biden. The fact that Jake Tapper would let her get away with it doesn’t surprise me. You know, once a Democratic operative, always a Democratic operative. It’s an absolutely asinine statement.”
“Joe Biden can’t remember where he is 50% of the time. He forgets the office that he’s running for. He’s not willing to campaign and speak to the American people, presumably because they’re ballot harvesting, as we saw from James O’Keefe last night. And because, the media will carry their water for him and let him get away with it, just like Jake Tapper did,” Trump Jr. said.
“If Donald Trump made one Joe Biden type error once, it would be all over. Joe does it everyday, so that’s why he’s in debate prepping. He can’t be on the campaign trail because he needs to be able to preform for 2 hours, despite having done this for 50 years. It’s absolutely asinine that she could get away with saying something like that when her husband is literally– most inept, in terms of speaking, in terms of ability,” he continued. Video Below
“You would think that after half a century in Washington D.C., you’d be able to remember your platform,” Donald Trump Jr. said of Joe Biden. “You’d be able to remember a couple talking points and not need a teleprompter. It’s absolutely ridiculous.”
“But Jill Biden is campaigning because Joe doesn’t seem capable of it. But unfortunately, she’s not the one running for president, despite them putting her out there much more than him,” he added.

He also tweeted on Monday:
No one in the history of campaigns will have done more time on debate prep and Joe Biden. He better have the greatest performance in the history of debate with as little time as he’s been on the road and obviously preparing. https://t.co/vPFDDcIzKR
