President-elect Joe Biden has spent the past three weeks speaking in public far more often than Donald Trump has. But Biden has picked his spots, well aware that his appearances were as much about pressuring Trump and the GSA to cave on transition as anything else. Now that the transition process has formally begun, Biden is going big.
Joe Biden will be interviewed on NBC News tonight by Lester Holt at 6:30pm eastern time. Biden has already been announcing cabinet picks and emphasizing specific initiatives during various one-off appearances. We suspect he’ll use his national spotlight tonight to focus on his presidential agenda and leadership message at large.
– Congrats to Paul Ryan for having the courage to finally speak up about the election the day after the transition began. That’s a real profile in courage right there. Eye roll. Could this guy be any more of a coward?
