Biden Scraps Michigan Trip Ahead Of Anti-Lockdown Protests, Calls ‘Lid’ At 8 a.m.

Best President Money Can Buy

Joe Biden has cancelled his planned trip to Michigan today, ahead of anti-COVID lockdown demonstrations, claiming the decision was made due to weather reports suggesting that DC would receive 1 to 4 inches of snow. After Biden stopped working, calling an early “lid” at 8 a.m. this morning, it was announced that Vice President Kamala Harris will conduct in-person events instead. Biden was scheduled to fly to Portage, Michigan today to tour a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine manufacturing facility, but that trip has been postponed, with the President blaming poor weather as the excuse to stop working at 8 a.m.

The trip was cancelled before Washington had experienced any precipitation. It is also worth noting that Portage, Michigan has not experienced any snow this morning, despite temperatures plunging as low as 16 degrees Fahrenheit.

When a “lid” is called by the White House, it means that there are no in-person scheduled events for reporters. Instead, news briefings with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki will be done over the phone today. Read more…
