Jill Biden did her best to physically block eager reporters from getting near President Joe Biden at the White House's Lunar New Year celebration.

The First Lady was seen expertly moving herself between the journalists and her husband — who has been recently mocked for repeatedly fumbling his words and flubbing names in speeches — as they peppered him with questions about the classified documents that had been found in one of his old office buildings.

"This has really gotten concerning," former Georgia Rep. Doug Collins said in a Friday, January 27, interview addressing the incident. "In all fairness to the first lady, nobody elected her to answer questions for the president on issues that the press may have questioned."

The President's special counsel, Richard Sauber, made a statement on the initial finding in early January.

"On the day of this discovery, November 2, 2022, the White House Counsel’s Office notified the National Archives. The Archives took possession of the materials the following morning," he explained at the time. "Since that discovery, the President’s personal attorneys have cooperated with the Archives and the Department of Justice in a process to ensure that any Obama-Biden Administration records are appropriately in the possession of the Archives."
