It’s the first day at work for “Joseph Robinhood Biden”, as The daily show host Trevor Noah called him. Among his first tasks, he was to take the oath to the “4,000” people who will assist him. But this Zoom swearing-in came with a warning from the 46th President.
“If you ever work with me and talk to someone, I promise I’ll fire you right away,” Biden told his employees.
“It took a turn,” Noah noted. “Welcome to a new era of kindness and respect. And if you don’t agree with that, I’ll rip your nipples out.
Noah then turned to the redecorated Oval Office, asking, “Is it really an improvement to change Trump’s rug?” I respect the story, but at some point it starts to get suspicious. He then listed the office’s historical artifacts dating from past presidencies. Antiquities did not impress Noah. “Dude, are you broke?”
A piece of history is always there, Noah noted. “Regardless of the other changes, the Martin Luther King bust remains. Because nobody wants to be the guy who takes MLK’s bust off. If a tornado hits the office, it stays.
But redecorating is just a symbolic change. People are already noticing how Biden’s presidency will be different from Donald Trump’s, as Noah played a talking headline montage highlighting this point. “Joe Biden is so lucky. Then Noah said, “This is George Washington.”
The lesson for all of us is to “always follow the worst possible person”.
