The Bidens & the Harris-Emhoffs prepared meal kits at DC Central Kitchen

Isn’t it relaxing to have a president and first lady who are nice, decent people? Every single day of the Trump administration was a nightmare fueled by a selfish, narcissistic demon who didn’t care about anyone other than himself. Nowadays, Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden do lovely things like “get excited about the White House Christmas tree” and “prepare Thanksgiving meals at DC’s Central Kitchen”:

President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, served up turkey and sweet potatoes on Tuesday at the D.C. Central Kitchen, an organization that makes fresh food for schools and homeless shelters in Washington, ahead of this week’s U.S. Thanksgiving holiday.

The Bidens were joined by Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, who dished out green beans and gravy, respectively. The two couples, who were also joined by famed chef Jose Andres, were putting together Thanksgiving meal kits along with staff from the facility.

Americans celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday with a traditional meal that often includes turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and other fixings.

Asked what he was thankful for, Biden told reporters: “the people standing right next to me.”

After their community service event, the Bidens headed to Joint Base Andrews for a flight to Nantucket, Massachusetts, where they are scheduled to vacation for the remainder of the week.

This is great! Many food banks and shelters put together these kinds of meal kits these days and I always think it’s so smart. I love to donate canned goods to Thanksgiving food bank drives, and there are a lot of churches and grocery store chains which donate frozen turkeys and fresh produce too. It’s great that Kamala Harris and Doug were there too, helping out. Jose Andres even posted some photos! Also: the Christmas tree got delivered to the White House this week and I can’t wait to see how Dr. Jill decorates the White House for Christmas. She loves holiday decorating! Everything is going to be red and green and sparkly.

    So refreshing to have good, kind, decent people working and living in the White House again.

      @ Lightpurple, I know!! They were also at one of the military bases earlier this week handing out food for service members too!! They talked about how much love and admiration they have for our active service members and retired service members. They spoke with many service members too!! They openly said how much they love and appreciate each and every one of them!!! It was so touching and lovely!!!

      It’s wonderful to see decency, appreciation and compassion back in the WH again!! I can’t wait to see what else Biden and Harris do to make this country a better place for everyone!!! I am also giddy with their commitment to making everyone’s issues important!!

    Man I’m so excited to see some heartwarming decor this year.

    I love this.

    I am super excited to see how Dr Biden decorates this year.

    What a difference a year makes, I tell you.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ TIFFANY, I am too!!! In addition to what we experienced in the last administration, the ongoing issues with housing, vaccinations and the epidemic of evictions for millions of Americans who are still suffering from being evicted and having to find reasonably priced housing. In addition to the immeasurable trauma and lack of protecting students and teachers. Students learning from home are still issues with states refusing to mandate vaccinations for teachers that have suffered. And we have the ongoing issue of misinformation regarding vaccines and states opposing laws to mandate vaccinations and companies as well. Which has left us with too many Americans unvaccinated and they are the ones holding every facet of our lives from moving forward. We have suffered an unprecedented amount of trauma since 2019/2020 and it will take years and possibly decades to recover.

    I’m not a huge Biden fan but I did vote for him, in part so I wouldn’t have to hear what enraging, racist, outrageously stupid thing the president had done every day.

  6. Monica says:

    I’m confident there will be no ghostly, menacing red or white trees.

  7. Traveler says:

    I am an unabashed Biden/Harris fan. Can you imagine any of this being sincerely done by anyone in the last administration or by the majority of the repubs in office today?

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ Traveler, I too am an unabashed Biden/Harris fan!! I am still a fan of fan the Obamas as well!! And President Jimmy Carter still doing what is important for those suffering from lack of basic housing!!

      I can’t see any Repugnant doing anything to help common Americans, not unless it benefits them directly! McConnell only supported the last bill due to the enormous amount of money Kentucky will get from it. I have become so disgusted by the entire Repugnant party that I mute when anyone of them are on air. I barely survived the last administration, and I think a majority of Americans feel this way too. The trauma and harm they caused in the last administration will be felt for decades.

  8. Lizzie Bathory says:

    It’s honestly such a relief to not worry every morning that there’s a sociopath as President.

    Can’t wait to see how Dr. Biden decorates for Christmas! Aside from Christmas 2020, when I thought the trees looked fine, I always found the showy coldness of Melania’s holiday decorations to be very revealing.

  9. WithTheAmerican says:

    I love these people so much. I’m tearing up in gratitude for their decency. But also, Biden and Dems did just pass huge legislation -FDR style- to help every day Americans and our media doesn’t talk about it because it’s not exciting like having a dictator unable to hold a bottle of water.

    Good good people. Doing good good things.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ WithTheAmerican, I know!! Instead we hear about inflation and the lack of the ports not being able to move containers fast enough. People don’t seem to realize that the country that makes these products were shut down for a full year. And that consumers will have to take the brunt of it. I already started shopping before I usually do so that if they have it in stock, I buy it. These issues are not at the fault of Biden, but some do like to blame him.

  10. JL says:

    I always appreciate Thanksgiving volunteers. There is a need (particularly in the “off-season”, like February, when food banks are getting the least overflow produce from grocery stores) for volunteers and donations year-round, but Thanksgiving presents its own challenges! At our local food bank, there is an insurance team that comes in every year for a day of chopping up squash. One person starts with a literal machete, and the squash moves down a line getting chopped into smaller pieces. This is the kind of thing that really helps: we get TONS of donated squash every year, but few of the clients have the time or energy to deal with it in its original form.

    I am very distressed that vice president Harris is getting bad press and smeared by many outlets. It’s a damned if you do it damned if you don’t situation. Deja vu.

  12. RoyalBlue says:

    so refreshing to have kind and considerate leadership,

  13. J ferber says:

    So what’s the big news? Didn’t Donald and Melania do the same every Thanksgiving? Oh yeah . . . They didn’t.
