First Lady Jill Biden rushed in to help Joe, making effort to stop him from getting into a debate with a reporter about abortion.
“As the President and First Lady left the White House to board Marine One, Biden jogged up and stopped to talk to reporters,” reports Breitbart.
“Biden had ashes on his forehead for Ash Wednesday, a day marking the beginning of the Catholic season of Lent which prompted a reporter to ask him why he supported abortion when he claimed to be Catholic,” reports Breitbart.
“I tell you what, I don’t want to get in a debate with you on theology, but you know…” Biden began.
The First Lady walked up quickly to get the President’s attention and interrupted the exchange.
“Well, anyway,” Biden said after the interruption. “I’m not going to make a judgment for other people.”
REPORTER: "As a Catholic, why do you support abortion?"

Biden said he was giving up “all sweets” for Lent.
“And you know me, I start off with dessert,” he said. “No ice cream. Nothing.”
Biden received his ashes at the White House after praying with a cardinal.
“Biden agreed with Pope Francis to pray and fast for the Ukrainian people on Wednesday, as they face escalating attacks from Russia,” reported Breitbart News.
“I think he’s right,” he said.
