Late last week, the Violence Against Women Act was finally reauthorized by Congress. President Biden was the original writer and sponsor of the act decades ago, and of course he was working with congressional leaders to reauthorize. Angelina Jolie also went to Washington several times in the past year to personally lobby senators and representatives to reauthorize. While there were no photos of Jolie and President Biden together during her previous Washington trips, we do know that she took meetings at the Biden White House. And now look at this – Angelina was invited to be part of the Wednesday White House event for VAWA. Zahara was there too, and President Biden even referenced Zahara while he was at the podium:

Jolie also spoke to NBC News while she was there in Washington. Speaking about VAWA, she said in part: “It is personal to everyone. Everyone who cares about family, everyone who cares about children, everyone who cares about their own safety and the health of their community. I [think] this country doesn’t recognize what a serious domestic violence and child abuse problem it really has.” She has been telling us what happened to her and what happened to her children this entire time, and very few people want to listen.
