Dr. Jill Biden is hot stuff. She’s smart, she’s cool and she loves pranks and holidays. I always thought that Dr. Biden dresses “like a teacher,” in that she’s usually wearing something a little bit twee and cute rather than super-stylish. But now I wonder if Dr. Biden is actually more of a ‘90s alt-fashion girl. Can a doctor get some flannel and ripped jeans up in here? No? Then how about a heeled ankle boots, a twirly skirt and FISHNETS?? Dr. Biden deplaned at Andrews Air Force Base last week and her fishnets are still making headlines.
Of course, there are people crying about how no one said “you go, girl” when Melania Trump wore any of her ridiculous couture costumes and something something, why are fashionistas being mean to Melania? For what it’s worth… Melania occasionally wore a suit or a blouse I liked, but her style wasn’t even all that great. It was just expensive. And her personality was so awful, that *did* affect how we saw her fashion. Dr. Biden is a breath of fresh air and a cool lady, so of course we’re going to clap when she wears fishnets and ankle boots. Meanwhile, Dr. Jill “pranked” her staff and reporters on this same trip:
First Lady Dr. Jill Biden had a busy day on Thursday (otherwise known as April Fools’ Day, or, to me, the worst pseudo-holiday in rotation). While traveling on Executive One Foxtrot, the First Lady’s plane, Biden pranked staff and reporters by dressing up as a flight attendant (complete with a black wig and name tag reading “Jasmine”) and handing out Dove ice cream bars. After serving dessert, Biden reportedly returned to the cabin sans wig and exclaimed “April Fools!”
Biden is apparently a known in-flight prankster. In her memoir she wrote of hiding in an overhead bin on Air Force Two when her husband, President Joe Biden, was vice president.
Amid a chaotic day of First Lady duties and elaborate pranks, Biden also wore an unexpected (though greatly appreciated) outfit. Jill paired a set of black floral fishnet tights, black heeled booties, a semi-pleated leather skirt, and a fitted black blazer. Think: Early aughts emo meets White House matriarch.
As promised during her husband’s 2020 campaign, Dr. Biden has maintained her full-time job as an English teacher since the inauguration. According to a CBS News report, Biden is currently teaching three remote introductory English courses at Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA).
What do we think about a prankster First Lady who has access to wigs? It’s cute, I guess. She seems to have a warm relationship with her staff and with the journalists covering her… which Melania never had. Protect Dr. Jill and her fishnets at all costs!
