The Biden Administration has called in the BIG guns.
According to a report from Axios, Academy Award Winner and America’s nice guy Tom Hanks has been tapped to narrate a video celebrating Biden’s first year.
The video will be “blanketing today’s airwaves — from breakfast to evening news to prime time — with a video promoting a recovering, resilient America,” Axios reports, adding, “The committee, which was nominated for an Emmy, is spending several million dollars in leftover inaugural funds to air the ad on broadcast and cable TV today. The Presidential Inaugural Committee then will spend a similar amount over the next week to amplify the video on digital platforms.”
“In recognition of the President’s first year in office, the Biden-Harris Presidential Inaugural Committee believed it was important to celebrate the strength and perseverance of the American people in the face of extraordinary adversity, just as we did a year ago today. … Through the voices of those Americans — including some who participated in last year’s celebration — the video also highlights the progress that’s been made over the last year,” the PIC told Axios.
“Past inaugural committees have used leftover funds in various ways, including donating to the White House Historical Association or renovations in the presidential residence,” Axios noted.
But not Joe —he’s spending his funds to remind everyone how terrible his first year was. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) mocked the move on Twitter, reminding the Biden Administration that the Simpsons did it first.
