As millions of Americans tuned in to listen to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris deliver their post-election “victory” speech, many noticed that there was a certain something missing. With votes still being counted, and President Trump silent except for a string of tweets expressing skepticism in the vote count, Biden and Harris danced on stage, surrounded by their family (including a cleaned-up-and-sober looking Hunter Biden) before delivering a pair of remarks.
The overarching theme, as expressed by Biden and Harris to their supporters, was simple: Americans had chosen “empathy” over “divisiveness”. And after narrowly squeaking out a victory despite leaving the Senate in GOP hands, while losing a surprising number of lawmakers down-ballot, Harris and Biden proclaimed that it was “time to heal”.
Wearing an all-white pantsuit, Harris described Biden as a “healer” and a “tested and steady hand”, adding that “while I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last”…”Because every little girl watching tonight sees that this is a country of possibilities.”
