Citizens of the United States of America once again saw their frail elderly president, this time with his wife directing him, throughout a visit to a children’s hospital.
President Biden and first lady Jill Biden actually paid a Christmas Eve visit to the Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., where they visited with sick children and their families and read a tale to them.
According to the White House, Jill followed in the footsteps of former first women by visiting the hospital for the holidays, but Friday was special since it was the first time the current president joined in the Christmas ritual.
Throughout the visit, Jill pointed, steered, and spoke for Joe to guarantee the event’s success. Jill would occasionally take his arm and tug him over to his proper location, similar to what we’ve seen throughout Joe’s eleven months in office. Jill would also turn to the audience, coaching them for a reaction in the same way that a circus conductor would after the artists had completed an activity.
Just after 11 a.m., the Bidens arrived at the hospital. EST and talked with youngsters who were creating lanterns as part of a winter crafts initiative in the hospital atrium.

The first pair then read “Olaf’s Night Before Christmas” to a group of youngsters in front of a Christmas tree in the room.
The book was read out loud by the first lady, and it was beamed to the rooms of pediatric patients who were not in the atrium.
