Dr. Jill Biden told CNN host Jake Tapper that it is unfair to criticize her husband’s so-called “gaffes” when President Donald Trump lies so often.
During an interview that aired on Sunday’s State of the Union program, Biden stopped Tapper immediately when he brought up the word “gaffe.”
“Your husband has been known to make the occasional gaffe,” Tapper said.
Biden interrupted: “You can’t even go there! After Donald Trump, you cannot even say the word gaffe.”
“I can’t even say the word gaffe,” Tapper smiled. “But…”
“Nope,” Biden said, shutting the host down. “Done. It’s gone.”
“The gaffe issue is over?” Tapper asked.
“Over, so over,” Biden replied.

Federal appeals court grants Trump campaign ‘expedited’ hearing after Giuliani bungles case in Pennsylvania
The United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit has granted the Trump campaign's motion for an expedited hearing in a case that is being handled by attorney Rudy Giuliani.
Last week, federal Judge Matthew Brann tossed out a case in which Giuliani had asked for 680,000 ballots to be invalidated in Pennsylvania. But Giuliani's team had removed legal claims about the demand from its motion to the court.
In his ruling, Brann said that Giuliani could not file an amended complaint in his court. The Trump campaign responded by filing an amended motion for expedited review with the Third Circuit of appeals.

But experts have questioned how it couldn't be an inconvenience that would lead to problems for incoming national security and public health officials, The Atlantic reported Monday.
Biden has worked to raise money for the transition, telling supporters that since they don't have access to the funds for incoming presidents, that they need donations to make it.
