Joe Biden didn’t officially become the President-elect until late-Wednesday night when Congress certified the Electoral College votes.
However, he and his team have been feverishly working on their plans to take over the White House at noon on January 20 since November when he unilaterally declared himself the President-elect.
But Joe Biden just got a monkey wrench thrown into his big Inauguration Day plans.
Presidential Inauguration Day is a major event in our nation’s capital.
Normally, folks line the streets and hold a massive parade for the President on his way to the Capitol for the swearing in ceremony.
But not this January 20.
In fact, after spending the entire campaign hiding in a basement, Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day parade has been cancelled, ending the tradition.
As The Daily Mail reported:
President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration parade has been cancelled in favor of a virtual version designed to limit crowds during the coronavirus era.
Organizers announced the changes on Sunday, saying that a ‘virtual parade across America’ will be held instead of the traditional procession on Inauguration Day, January 20.
Following the swearing-in ceremony on the west front of the US Capitol, Biden and his wife, first lady Jill Biden, will join Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and her husband in participating in a socially distanced Pass in Review on the Capitol’s opposite front side. Those are military traditions where Biden will review the readiness of military troops.
Our nation is facing a time of despair.
And right now, more than ever, we need a leader who will stand before the American people and deliver a message of optimism and hope about the future of our country.
Instead, Joe Biden is attempting to strike fear in the hearts of the American people by canceling the Inauguration Day parade.
