President Joe Biden’s first primetime address will strike a celebratory tone and “commemorate” the one year anniversary of the divisive COVID-19 shutdown policies advocated by the Democrat Party, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed during a press conference on Monday.
“The president will deliver his first primetime address to commemorate the one year anniversary of the COVID-19 shutdown on Thursday,” Psaki announced.
“He will discuss the many sacrifices the American people have made over the last year and the grave loss communities and families across the nation have suffered,” Psaki continued. “The President will look forward, highlighting the role of Americans, that Americans will play in beating the virus and moving the country towards getting back to normal.”

The news comes after the one-year anniversary of talking heads’ highly touted “two weeks to stop the spread” in spring 2020.
Biden’s plans to “commemorate” the anniversary of crippling lockdowns that have resulted in myriad business closures and large spikes in depression received widespread criticism on social media Monday.

In February, Psaki revealed that Biden will refuse to meet with world leaders for the next few months, delegating responsibilities to Vice President Kamala Harris:
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted today that Joe Biden will not be meeting with world leaders in-person for “a couple of months.”
This news comes after the revelation that Vice President Kamala Harris has assumed one of the traditional roles of the presidency, and has begun taking Head of State calls with foreign leaders on behalf of the President.
This news comes amid suspicions that Harris would be running the show throughout the duration of Biden’s presidency due to the President’s apparent cognitive decline. Harris has already had phone calls with French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
“It will be a couple of months before the President has an in-person or invites a foreign leader to meet in person here at the White House,” said Psaki during a White House press conference.
Biden still has no plans to a live White house press conference with a Q-and-A session.
