President-elect Joe Biden urged Americans to remain patient for a coronavirus vaccine through Thanksgiving and the holiday season by continuing to take precautions such as wearing masks and maintaining a social distance.

Biden noted the first Thanksgiving was celebrated Dec. 18, 1777, by George Washington and his troops on the way to Valley Forge during the Revolutionary War. ...

“Gratitude even in the face of suffering has long part of what Thanksgiving means in America,” Biden said in an 18-minute speech from The Queen theater in Wilmington, Delaware....

Biden acknowledged the difficulty of spending holidays isolated from relatives because of health warnings not to travel or gather in large numbers.


President Donald Trump's annual Thanksgiving proclamation calls for Americans to "gather" for the holiday, even though federal public health officials have explicitly warned against it.

The final line of the proclamation, issued by the White House press secretary's office Wednesday evening, reads: "I encourage all Americans to gather, in homes and places of worship, to offer a prayer of thanks to God for our many blessings."

First lady Melania Trump on Monday oversaw the arrival of the White House Christmas tree maskless, at one point posing for pictures with the tree farmers, who removed their own masks. And on Tuesday, an unmasked Trump pardoned a turkey in the White House Rose Garden

One promoting America's well-being and the closeness of shared sacrifice, the other encouraging spread of pandemic and obliviousness. Hit the road, Jack :-/
