Naomi Biden’s got her eye on her granddad after his latest comments about this year’s Thanksgiving celebrations.
President-elect Joe Biden said in a news conference Monday that he and his wife, Jill, had narrowed down which family members could attend their holiday gathering this year in line with public health guidance about celebrating safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
His granddaughter caught wind after a reporter tweeted the Democrat’s comments:
Biden passed on advice from public health experts that gatherings on the Nov. 26 holiday be limited to five people, with an absolute maximum of 10 people, who should socially distance and wear masks.
He said family members who come to visit will have been tested within 24 hours of their event.
“I would strongly urge, not just for your sake but for the sake of your children, your mother, your father, your sister, your brothers.... Think about this. There should be no group more than 10 people,” he said.
Naomi, the daughter of Hunter and Kathleen Biden, is the eldest of Biden’s grandchildren. She made several appearances during her grandfather’s presidential campaign, including at the Democratic National Convention with her sisters Maisy and Finnegan and cousin Natalie. The four said they’re extremely close with their grandfather, who calls them almost every day.
Apparently, the grandkids were the ones who broke the news to the presidential candidate that he’d won the race.
Joe and Jill Biden were sitting on their back patio at home when their grandchildren rushed out to tell him, “Pop, Pop! We won!” according to NBC News. Naomi Biden shared a photo of the family embracing over their win.
