Jill Biden will grace the cover of the August issue of Vogue magazine where she talks about how President Joe Biden was “just a calmer president,” without naming former President Donald Trump.

In a series of pictures posted by the magazine Tuesday on Instagram, we see the first lady posed for a snap wearing a long-sleeve navy blue floral dress while at the White House. (RELATED: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez Deliver Stunning Performances At Joe Biden’s Inauguration)

In a second, we see FLOTUS and POTUS in a courtyard of the patio outside the Oval Office standing close together like they are dancing. And in a third, the first lady looks intensely at a computer with a pencil in her mouth as she appears to be working on something.

During the interview, Jill was asked about the mood of the country since Biden has become president.

“During the campaign, I felt so much anxiety from people; they were scared,” FLOTUS shared. “When I travel around the country now, I feel as though people can breathe again. I think that’s part of the reason Joe was elected.”

“People wanted someone to come in and heal this nation, not just from the pandemic, which I feel Joe did by, you know, getting shots in everybody’s arms,” she added. “But also…he’s just a calmer president. He lowers the temperature.”

At one point, the president admitted their marriage has been affected since he was sworn in and the first lady agreed.

“Yeah, it has,” POTUS said. “I miss her. I’m really proud of her. But it’s not like we can just go off like we used to. When we were living in Delaware and married, once a month we’d just go up to a local bed-and-breakfast by ourselves, to make sure we had a romantic time to just get away and hang out with each other.”

“I’m not complaining,” he added. “It’s part of the deal. But this life prevents it. It’s just harder. Don’t you think that’s right?”

“Oh, yeah,” Jill added.

Former first lady Melania Trump never made the cover during Trump’s presidency, while former first lady Michelle Obama was on the cover three times. Former first lady and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was on the cover twice, once as first lady and also being endorsed by the magazine in 2016. Vice President Kamala Harris was also on the cover in February.
