Bidens Highlight 'Sacrifice' of Staying Home for Thanksgiving While Trump Urges Americans to Gather

President Donald Trump and President-elect Joe Biden offered different messages to Americans this Thanksgiving as coronavirus cases surge across the U.S.

In an op-ed published by CNN on Thursday morning, Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, acknowledged those who are "staying away to protect everyone during this pandemic."

"It is not a small sacrifice," the incoming first couple wrote. "These moments with our loved ones—time that's lost—can't be returned. Yet, we know it's the price of protecting each other and one we don't pay alone. Isolated in our own dining rooms and kitchens, scattered from coast to coast, we are healing together."

In a video posted to Twitter on Thursday, Biden called the act of staying home "a gift to our fellow Americans."

Trump's annual Thanksgiving proclamation, on the other hand, called for people to get together and celebrate the holiday.

"I encourage all Americans to gather, in homes and places of worship, to offer a prayer of thanks to God for our many blessings," the president's proclamation read.

It'll be nice to have an adult as president again.

1. I'm Starting to Itch a Bit Over This "Adult" Meme

For one thing, it's an insult to minors and adolescents, who in most cases have skills, talents, insights, and curiosity, among so many other traits, far better developed than these stooges.

But I struggle for a more correct comparison that does not fling insults.

"Human" would work if it were not for the other animal spp.!
