Why The Words Biden Just Said At His Address Has Twitter Emotional”

As Biden addressed a joint session of Congress - completing 100 days in office, he highlighted extraordinary development at the very opening of his address.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) waits for President Joe Biden to deliver his first address to a joint session of Congress. Photos of the two beginning the night with an elbow-bump, replacing the traditional handshake amid the pandemic, is now going viral.

There is one last bit of history to make, of course. "It's about time. I made history when I was the first speaker to be standing behind President Bush, and he made note of that. It's about time", Pelosi said hours before the speech.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has been in the position before during presidential speeches.

Pelosi, for her part, has led the Democratic Party's House caucus for almost two decades and shattered her share of glass ceilings along the way, as she noted in an Wednesday interview with MSNBC. She has sat there for several addresses by Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump.

Pelosi already knows what it feels like to sit on the rostrum in the House chamber and introduce a president for their speeches.

"The word diplomacy generally suggests a relationship between government leaders, but I believe it has to be broader than that", she said. Others shared powerful images of the trio, saying, "The two most powerful women in the United States have Joe Biden's back", while someone else chimed in, "America, watch out for the shards".

Harris, the first woman and the first Black and Asian person to serve as vice president, sat to Biden's right.

In her role as president of the Senate, she joins Ms Pelosi to preside over the joint session of Congress.

'For all of us who care about women´s public leadership, we still look forward to the day when the person standing at the podium, in front, is a woman, ' Walsh added. "But for now this is a particularly gratifying moment".

He wrote, "Madam Speaker, Madam Vice President.History made". The symbolic seating also connotes the first time that women are first and second in the presidential line of succession, a sign of women in power in their respective roles, CNN said.
