‘I am dying!’ Jill Biden sends heads to desks with visit to ‘appropriately named’ high school

The latest example of how tone-deaf Team Biden is involves first lady Jill Biden visiting a school in West Valley City, Utah.

The name of the school? Hunter High School.

Mrs. Biden was accompanied by U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, and they traveled to Hunter High to advocate for “educator wellness.”

“Thanks to the work of your governor and your first lady, Utah has taken a big step forward in paying teachers what they deserve,” Biden said. “Supporting educators does not have to be a red issue or a blue issue — it’s an American one.”

She spoke at a podium that featured a sign that simply said, “Hunter High School,” with the term “school” being on a second line.

Political commentator Adrian Norman summed it up best when he tweeted, “It just doesn’t get any more on-brand than Jill Biden speaking behind a podium that says ‘Hunter High.'”

“Jill Biden trying to distract from her comments about Hunter’s drug abuse, and ending up under a giant banner reading “Hunter High,” is straight out of a VEEP episode,” tweeted education policy strategist Angela Morabito.

Mrs. Biden used Hunter’s drug addiction last week to bash Republicans as they investigate Biden family business dealings with foreign entities.

“I think what they are doing to Hunter is cruel, and I’m really proud of how Hunter has rebuilt his life after addiction,” she told Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski.

Below is a video capturing the staged reception the first lady received upon arriving at the high school:

Social media certainly had fun with the photo-op that made ridicule easy… here’s a quick sampling of some of the responses, as seen on X:
