As global tensions rose and economic uncertainty plagued the American people this week, the Bidens welcomed a new four-legged friend into the White House.
The first lady’s office announced that America’s first family welcomed a two-year-old gray-and-white-striped cat named Willow to the White House.
Reuters reports that a spokesperson for Jill Biden, Michael LaRosa, confirmed that the young tabby cat — named Willow — was named after Mrs. Biden’s hometown of Willow Grove, Pennsylvania.
According to LaRosa, Mrs. Biden met Willow at a campaign stop in 2020.
“A farm cat from Pennsylvania, Willow made quite an impression on Dr. Biden in 2020 when she jumped up on the stage and interrupted her remarks during a campaign stop in 2020,” LaRosa said, “Seeing their immediate bond, the owner of the farm knew that Willow belonged with Dr. Biden.”
While Willow may be living her American dream, many humanoid Americans are having an incredibly rough winter as the domestic economy aggressively trends downward and tensions continue to rise abroad.
Americans are watching their wages and savings evaporate due to inflation, and Russia continues to mass forces along Ukrainian borders.
Inflation increased by 7% last year, according to data provided by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. This is the biggest increase in inflation since the early 1980s, marking a 40-year high. Notably, core inflation — the inflationary rate not accounting for price fluctuation in things like food and gas — rose by 5.5%.
While the Biden White House celebrates the addition of a new pet to the first family’s rotating menagerie of critters, the American people are watching as their wages and savings shrink before their very eyes as the economy spirals down the drain.
American citizens are without evacuation assistance from the government and the American embassy in Kyiv has been closed, as Russia stands ready to attack and invade Ukraine. The U.S. State Department believes foreign intelligence shows “every indication” that Russia will use force against Ukraine by mid-February, reports Fox News.
The Washington Examiner reports that President Biden previously stated he has “no intention of putting American forces or NATO forces in Ukraine.” But, regardless of his intentions, American lives are still at risk and American interests abroad are being compromised.
According to the Associated Press, the first lady has been expecting Willow to move into the West Wing since last April. Whereas the legacy media and its left-wing acolytes might find the Bidens' new pet endearing, the American people continue to worry about what lies in the future.
