If you’re a Democratic First Lady, you can expect lots of puff pieces from outlets like ABC’s Good Morning America and Vogue magazine. If you’re a Republican? Not as much. GMA journalists on Tuesday gushed over Jill Biden appearing on Vogue for the first time, hailing the “inspiration.”
ABC reporter Janai Norman sounded like she was a PR rep for the Democrat, fawning, “Dr. Jill Biden, the First Lady who is also a former second lady, a current professor who is sometimes called Dr. B. But according to Vogue, in informal settings she'll say to call her Jill.”
Working to supplement the magazine’s puff piece with an ABC one, Norman hailed, “This morning, the First Lady appearing on her first Vogue cover. GMA getting an exclusive first look at Dr. Jill Biden pulls back the curtain on her life in the White House.”
Vogue.com editor Chioma Nnadi continued the state run propaganda, touting Biden as an “inspiration” to all:
The reason she is an inspiration, I think, she's embraced her role with both hands and she's also kept her role as a teacher, you know, he she's extremely inspiring as someone who can multi task with a smile on her face and seems to make everything possible and a sense of optimism and joy in everything that she does.
Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is a long-time Democratic donor, so we can consider this a donation. GMA co-host George Stephanopoulos is a former Democratic operative for Bill Clinton. So nice when Democrats in the media can work together.
In an 2018 interview with Melania Trump, GMA's Tom Llamas scolded Melania Trump about Brett Kavanaugh, huffing that “some might say” “you need to stand with women.”

Good Morning America
8:12 AM ET
ROBIN ROBERTS: But now our GMA cover story. First lady Dr. Jill Biden on the cover of Vogue magazine giving insight into her life in the White House, how it's affected her marriage and juggling it all as she continues to teach and Janai is back with the first look.
JANAI NORMAN: Good morning again. Dr. Jill Biden, the First Lady who is also a former second lady, a current professor who is sometimes called Dr. B. But according to Vogue, in informal settings she'll say to call her Jill. She’s sharing how she's tackling those roles all while serving the country. This morning, the First Lady appearing on her first Vogue cover. GMA getting an exclusive first look at Dr. Jill Biden pulls back the curtain on her life in the White House saying, “I want the White House to feel comfortable. It's like my beach house where you feel like you can just come in and your bathing suit is sandy but it's okay to sit down on the chair. I want people to feel that way, that they're comfortable, that it's their house, not like it's, ‘oh, I can't touch this. “
CHIOMA NNADI (Editor, Vogue.com) The reason she is an inspiration, I think, she's embraced her role with both hands and she's also kept her role as a teacher, you know, he she's extremely inspiring as someone who can multi task with a smile on her face and seems to make everything possible and a sense of optimism and joy in everything that she does.
NORMAN: Since President Biden took office six months ago the First Lady has crisscrossed the country for speaking events saying she never takes her role for granted. “When I became Second Lady, I always said, I will never waste this platform and now I have a bigger platform and there's so much to do. There is so much to do.” Dr. Biden also juggling her career as an English and writing professor.
ANITA MCBRIDE (Director, First Ladies Initiative, American University): She is the first First Lady to have a job outside the home. And being first lady is a full-time job in itself but to Dr. Biden who has often said “Teaching is not what I do, it's who I am,” she came into this role of First Lady saying, I'm going to continue to teach.
NORMAN: But their busy questions are a challenge. President Biden telling Vogue, “I miss her. I'm really proud of her, we have to figure out a way – and I mean this seriously -- to be able to steal time for one another.” The First Lady agreeing saying they try their best to have dinner together. “It's just part of the day that we set apart and we still light the candles, still the conversations, still put the phones away.” Vogue has a long history of featuring first ladies. Every First Lady going back to Lou Hoover with the exception of Bess Truman and Melania Trump, who were not featured in the magazine. But really cool to learn more about Dr. Jill Biden, the First Lady, all of those things. [Laughs.]
