Sounds … festive But before calling it a day off, let’s talk about Biden’s first big speech – the unspoken, the unspoken – the great moments you may have missed.
It is The girls, Let’s do this.
This is what the president said last night
In a speech Wednesday night, Biden both looked back on his first 100 days in office. : developed a vision for the future of his administration, from talking about raising taxes for the rich to calling on Congress to take action against gun violence and police reform.

A historic moment for women. In previous speeches, did you notice two women standing behind the president? No. It’s because it has never been before. In his opening remarks, Biden nodded to Vice President Kamala Harris and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who were behind him. Harris was the first woman to be elected vice president, and Pelosi became the first woman speaker in 2007.

How did the GOP react? Guess:

Is America a “racist country”?
Room Tim Scott defended the country record in the race as an opportunity in response to Biden – optimism. Scott does not downplay the country’s racial and ethnic differences, but says Democrats are ignoring the actions of the past century for political and financial gain. “Listen to me clearly,” he said. “America is not a racist country.”
HarrisThe country’s first US Indian vice president չէր disagreed with some of Scott’s statements, but not all. He said that America is not a “racist country”, but on Thursday morning on “Good Morning America” the nation must “speak the truth” about its history through racism.
Everything else that happened in Washington.
