National Leaders from the Tri-State Present Inauguration Gifts

Senator McConnell among the lawmakers delivering gifts and remarks to the new President and Vice President

Posted: Jan 20, 2021 8:28 PM

In lieu of tradition, members of the United States Congress presented President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris with gifts on inauguration day following the ceremony.

Both were given engraved 32-pound crystal vases and photos from the ceremony.

Miniority leader and Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell teamed up with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during post-inaugural events.

The congressional leaders handed over a pair of American flags to the new president and vice president and their spouses.

McConnell then took time to honor the historic moments that had just taken place outside the capitol building.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave remarks mirroring those of Senator McConnell to welcome a new administration to the White House.

Following the exchange, Biden and Harris attended a wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.

Just another day in paradise. Temperatures surged back into the low 70's for the first time in a week and a half and with southerly winds finally returning to the region, more warmth is on the way for the Tri-State. In fact, this evening looks nothing short of absolutely gorgeous across the area - by dinnertime we'll have fallen back down to 71°, but only as low as 58° by 10PM. So, if you have plans out and about this evening, all you may need will be a sweatshirt. We'll also remain relatively mild early Saturday morning, especially when you compare Saturday morning's anticipated low of 48° to previous mornings earlier in the week. Brrr.
