You're more than thirty years in public office one of the things like I take note of as they do this walk together interacting with the reporters and some of the Guardsmen who were. Keeping them safe along the route. That's a typical not seeing these Americans lineup as they do every four years also though. What they've done here's a sea change the button simply by just simply wearing masks their effort to deep politicize the mask in this country as we now enter this new chapter. None of them seem bothered by the mass gates gets what when millions of Americans are doing everything in their lives to. Americans are exhausted by the pandemic but as we heard from the new president today we have to prepare for this next chapter and fight this virus every go that little chuck George.

Who were welcome to Biden's once they get to the White House to reports it'll be an usher that had been hired by Milan in the trunk. When consumer and just a really emotional organizations say hey the action would be. The most logical. Person to greet them at this point. Now in charge of the entire White House resident.
