WASHINGTON: Camping in bare offices, President Joe Biden’s new White House team has spent the first three days of his life trying to help Binder Clips and IT – oh, and save the country from multiple crises.
He took over the leadership of the world’s most powerful, rich and modern country on Wednesday. But after the drastic change by the Donald Trump administration, the incoming staff faces some of the same problems as a typical tenant in a new apartment.
But the warnings from Press Secretary Jane Sasaki and the offices run by her media operations are that empty shelves and rows of walls are less than homely.
Throughout the day, Meghan Hayes, the director of message planning, had to write on her cell phone because the computer was not working. Another staff member asked if anyone had seen the binding clips in the large cardboard box before the rumors of a failed office delivery.
However, if Biden’s staff did not have time to hang the pictures, they would have already changed the White House. Weakness, the most obvious difference is that now everyone wears a mask against Code-19. On his first day at the Resolution desk, a picture of Biden playing black masked games praised the new era.
Trump has never worn a mask in public, fearing it would send a message of weakness. He has never worn anyone in public in the Oval Office, wondering what “presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens” would think of him.
