Jill Biden, the first lady, reportedly was not given a warm welcome at Lincoln Financial Stadium, the home of her cherished Philadelphia Eagles. Biden, who grew up in Hammonton, New Jersey, just beyond Philadelphia, served as an honorary captain for the Eagles’ game against their fierce NFC East rivals, the Dallas Cowboys, on Sunday night. However, when she attempted to lead the throng in a performance of “Fly, Eagles, Fly,” the audience reportedly booed her brutally and chanted profanities about her husband.
Mrs. Biden, who was in attendance to promote the Cancer Moonshot project, certainly understood the fight song and grinned as she sang passionately in front of approximately 70,000 loud spectators. On its national broadcast, NBC featured a brief clip of her appearance, which was then shared on social media.
“FLOTUS leads the audience in #FlyEaglesFly before kickoff,” the official account of Sunday Night Football on NBC posted on Twitter, sharing the video.
In that footage, the only sound emanating from the crowd is “Fly, Eagles, Fly.” People in the stands, on the other hand, heard distinct sounds and shared their thoughts on social media.
The audience booed and yelled “F*** Joe Biden,” according to Tea Party Patriots.
“At last night’s Philadelphia Eagles game, Jill Biden was greeted with boos and shouts of “F*** Joe Biden.”
Some in a top section of the stadium were yelling a more family-friendly form of “FJB, Let’s Go, Brandon,” according to a video released by Newsmax host Benny Johnson.
Others present did not post video footage, but they did mention the boos and chanting on social media.
“Philly really BOO’d Jill Biden BAD,” wrote NFL veteran Clay Harbor, who was picked by the Eagles in 2010 and spent the next three seasons with the organization. He also added a laughing emoji, indicating that he considered the episode amusing.
Described as an “Eagles insider,” According to John McMullen, “FLOTUS Jill Biden is booed. Her status as an ‘Eagles fan’ did not save her.”
“Several media outlets have covered the story as well. OutKick is a well-known sports website, but writer Matt Reigle said late on Sunday night that videos of the booing and “FJB” chanting were hard to locate on social media. On Monday afternoon, though, a quick search of “Jill Biden” on Twitter returned scores of messages that contained the video. It’s unclear whether the recordings were more difficult to find after his narrative was released.”
