Jill, please don't come. Don't associate yourself with this thing.

I want you to come to Japan under other circumstances.

What is the advance team Jen Pasaki-chan?

Probably not, nobody wants their name anywhere near this putrid Olympic corpse of mismanagement and corruption.

Seriously, who cares?

Don't come ! Stay home ! No Spectators ! Tokyo In Lockdown ! or it it a sham, or a scam ? Which one ?

17 ( +21 / -4 )

It's not feasible. Stay home.

14 days

Will she Quarantine for 14 days.

Still surprised not a lot of people understand the meaning of sending only the first lady (or even less, "checking the feasibility of doing it") instead of someone with an actual position in the government for the games.

Please Ms Biden, offer to attend remotely. Set a good example.

11 ( +14 / -3 )

Does anyone really care, given the circumstances of everything that’s happening?

1 ( +7 / -6 )

Geez, I wonder who is going to foot the bill for Biden's security and his ticket to the games if he does go. Whether its the US tax payer or the Japanese, its a huge kick in the teeth for the average Joe or Taro that can't travel abroad or attend the games.

The toughest decision for the Biden administration so far.

Please Ms Biden, offer to attend remotely. Set a good example.

Is that new speak for watch it on the telly?

Please save the US taxpayers the outrageous cost and save the Japanese the headache of hosting her too.

Remember ‘stay home’!

Sending her to Japan on Air Force 1 would be an incredible waste of money, not to mention her time. From DC, that's about 18 hours. I know AF1 is a comfortable aircraft, but let's get serious. Send a nice diplomatic note saying she unfortunately has other commitments. It's done all the time.

"...an incredible waste of money, not to mention her time."

The 'Doctor' is good at wasting both.

-1 ( +7 / -8 )

Come over with Joe!

-12 ( +0 / -12 )

It is gonna be a blow to Japan if she does not come.

Who actually wanna come from overseas to attend such a ceremony with no spectators

Please Ms Biden, offer to attend remotely. Set a good example.

Is that new speak for watch it on the telly?

Not really, it's saying the US govt now has a perfectly legit reason (SoE) to backtrack on the ridiculous commitment Suga whiningly wrung out of Joe Biden at the G7. The Olympics are not political, right? So Japanese face is saved even if she now attends remotely.

Yeah. She can sit in the skyboxes with all the wealthy aristocrats. Observing the bread and circus from on high. It is a fitting metaphor.

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

As long as she flies commercial, on her own dime. Jill Biden, who voted for her?

1 ( +6 / -5 )

Is the China leader coming to learn how to hold Olympics during a pandemic? Only 6 months away.

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

Not feasible. Next.
