Jill Biden visit to Orlando area is first meaningful visit by a FLOTUS in years

First off, this isn’t a diss post on Melania Trump. She did the best she could under the circumstances of her husband’s administration. It’s up to you to decide what kind of first lady she was.

And regardless of what you think of her husband, Casey DeSantis is an engaged First Lady of Florida, constantly honoring veterans and first responders in the state.

But Jill Biden is a regular visitor to the Orlando area. And her visit on Thursday to fight vaccine hesitancy, is the first visit by a First Lady Of The United States with a strong purpose behind it in some time.

Vaccine hesitancy is very real here in the Orlando area. There are people that for a few reasons don’t want the shot.

They think the shot cost money and that they’ll get stuck with surprise bill.

They don’t want the side effects from the vaccine.

They can’t afford to take time off from work.

And as numbers of infected go down in Central Florida, and the masks start coming off, this only feeds their beliefs that getting the shot isn’t what’s in the best interest of their families at this time.

It’s also worth noting that this visit is taking place in Kissimmee. The tourism hub of Central Florida. Home of overpriced housing and low paid workers. The local leaders aren’t getting it done, they need a visit from a first lady to try and revive some faith that they’re not being set up for failure here.

Right there in Osceola County, you have nurses picketing poor staffing conditions in their hospitals (story HERE). Hopefully, someone will let FLOTUS know about that.

Probably not. But hopefully.

It will be good to get an official visit from first lady, Jill Biden, and hopefully her continued involvement in the Orlando area won’t stop there.
