A new biography about first lady Jill Biden was just published but not too many people seem interested in reading it.
The book has sold only 250 copies in its first week.
Far more people will read this article than bought the book.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Doctor Dud: Jill Biden Biography Sells Just 250 Copies in First Week
The American people are decidedly disinclined to pay $26 for a book about the life of President Joe Biden’s primary caretaker. Politico reports that a recently published biography of Dr. Jill Biden, Ed.D, sold just 250 copies in its first week of circulation.
The Politico article, which documents the professional anxiety of White House correspondents who find it “boring and difficult” to cover an administration whose policies they wholeheartedly support, cites the poor sales of Jill: A Biography of the First Lady by AP reporters Julie Pace and Darlene Superville as an example of why journalists are so bummed out now that a Democrat is in charge.
Writing a book about former president Donald Trump was a far more lucrative endeavor, and covering his administration was a profoundly exhilarating experience for the journalists who, in their humble view, were “saving democracy.” As Alexander Nazaryan, author of The Best People: Trump’s Cabinet and the Siege on Washington, explained in 2021: “Covering the administration was thrilling for many journalists, in the way that I imagine storming Omaha Beach must have been for a 20-year-old fresh from the plains of Kansas. He hadn’t signed up for battle, but there he was, liberating France.”
That’s just sad.
How humiliating. Jill Biden’s biography only sold 250 copies it's first week. It blows my mind considering her husband is the most popular president in American history.

250 books sold in the first week.
Especially when her husband is the "most popular President in the history of America"

Jill isn’t as popular as they thought she was.
