The Conference the created war  Jill Biden commented on this during the UnidosUS Annual Conference which was held in San Antonio, Texas. 

Despite all the hate that she got on the comment, there were a lot of people who came out in her support, and CBS host Gayle King was one of them.

The “CBS Mornings” host Gayle King also left the fans assured that the remarks left after the comment by Jill Biden were not true as that is not who she is.

Not correct 

Gayle King also made sure to convey the fact that the message that Jill wanted to give out did not come out correctly while coming to her defense.

The co-host of the show “CBS Mornings” called the controversy to be “incredibly offensive” whereas the reporter Christina Ruffini also called out the comment’s poor timing given the timing of the meeting of President Biden with Mexican President Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador which was scheduled for the next day. 

Despite coming out in support, Gayle King has managed to garner more haters than supporters for the support she has shown to Jill. Some people have commented on her going “too easy” on Lady Biden.

Some include Curtis Houck who is the managing director of NewsBusters has called her out for her defensive efforts and also criticized the network for covering the issue very shortly.
