WASHINGTON (AP) – New First Lady Jill Biden thanked the President of the US Capitol on Friday for giving a basket of chocolate chip cookies to members of the National Guard, thanking President Joe Biden for “keeping me and my family safe”. I had an undisclosed affair.
“I just want to say thanks to President Biden and the whole, whole Biden family,” she told a group of guard members at the Capitol. “The White House cooked you some chocolate chip cookies,” she said, before joking that she couldn’t say that she had baked them herself.
Joe Biden was sworn into office on Wednesday, just two weeks after a riot by Donald Trump supporters in a futile attempt to keep Congress from certifying Biden as the winner of the November presidential election. Extensive security measures were then put in place for the inauguration, which closed without major incidents.
Jill Biden told the group that her late son, Beau, was a member of the Delaware Army National Guard, having spent a year stationed in Iraq in 2008–09. Beau Biden died of brain cancer in 2015 at the age of 46.
“So I’m a National Guard mother”, he said, adding that the baskets were a “small thank you” for leaving their home states and coming to the nation’s capital. President Biden thanked the head of the National Guard Bureau in a phone call on Friday.
The first lady said, “I really appreciate all of you.” “The National Guard will always hold a special place in the heart of all Beadens.”
Jill Biden’s undeclared troop journey came after her first public visit as a first lady.
He also highlighted services for cancer patients at Whitman-Walker Health, a Washington institution that serves HIV / AIDS patients and the LGBTQ community. The clinic receives federal funds to receive assistance in federal areas.
Staff told the first woman that the cancer investigation had fallen since last March because patients did not want to come due to the coronavirus epidemic. More and more patients are taking advantage of options to see a doctor online.
When the issue of universal access to broadband Internet was raised, Jill Biden, who is a teacher, said that she would hear from teachers across the country who could not get in contact with their students due to spotty access in some areas.
“We just have to work together and address some of these things,” she said. “The first thing we need to do is address this epidemic and get everyone vaccinated and go back to work and go back to our schools and get things back to the new normal.”
