On the day Jill Biden was set to take the stage at the virtual Democratic National Convention, an exclusive from the British-based paper the Daily Mail documented allegations from her first husband, Bill Stevenson, who claims their marriage was destroyed because she cheated on him with then-Senator Joe Biden. Despite the allegations being fresh news, the Tuesday evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC covered them up to protect their candidate and boost Jill’s forthcoming speech.
The networks also gushed about former President Bill Clinton, who was also set to address the party. But he too was facing scandal as new images of him getting a massage from one of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s victims also surfaced earlier in the day.
“Tonight, Joe Biden's closest confidant takes center stage. Dr. Jill Biden, his wife of over 43 years will speak from the Wilmington school where she once taught English,” boasted White House correspondent Kristen Welker on NBC Nightly News.
She further gushed: “In excerpts just released, Dr. Biden will speak in deeply personal terms saying – ‘there are times when I couldn't imagine how he did it, how he put one foot in front of the other and kept going. But I've always understood why he did it. He does it for you.’ Dr. Biden has long been one of her husband's fiercest defenders. She memorably shielded him from a protester who rushed the stage on Super Tuesday.”
