First lady Jill Biden is en route to Japan to attend the Tokyo Olympics — but her accommodations will be far better than the infamous cardboard beds set up for athletes participating in the games.
The first lady’s office confirmed to The Post that she won’t have to sleep on the flimsy Olympic village furnishings, which some athletes suspect are designed to collapse under the weight of two people to discourage sex amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Biden spokesman Michael LaRosa also told The Post that she won’t be staying in a hotel. “She will not be staying in either,” he said.
LaRosa did not say where Mrs. Biden will be residing.
The first lady will represent the Biden administration at the Olympics’ opening ceremony on Friday — should the games go ahead. She will make a stop in Alaska on Wednesday and will meet with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga on Thursday.
