District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser defended her decision to attend the Saturday night victory speech from Joe Biden in Delaware as essential after receiving criticism for violating the travel restrictions by visiting Delaware, a state which is on DC’s list of high-risk states for the novel coronavirus.

Bowser was speaking to reporters on Tuesday when one of them, referred to as Sam, asked her if her trip to Delaware was considered essential travel.

“Absolutely,” she replied.

“Let me just say this, Sam,” Bowser continued. “I do a lot of things to advance the interests of the District of Columbia. And some of them are formal, and some of them are informal, but all of them are necessary.”

A round of applause then followed her answer.

She had answered a question from the same reporter right before this remark, explaining that the reason for her trip to Delaware was “to congratulate the Biden-Harris team on a historic victory and celebrate, for Washingtonians, what will be a change at the White House at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.” This remark was followed by applause from the crowd, too.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
