The American people have spoken guys. Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. is the 46th President of the United States! His win has been projected by various news agencies after he took the lead in Pennsylvania and Nevada and secured enough electoral votes to win the presidency which, according to The New York Times, is “exactly 48 years to the day after he was first elected to the Senate.”
As of press time, people across the country are taking to the streets to celebrate the Biden-Harris win, popping the champagne and dancing, USA Today reports.
But who exactly is Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.?
Joseph was born on November 20, 1942 in Scranton, Pennsylvania to Catherine Eugenia “Jean” Biden and Joseph Robinette Biden, Sr., a used-car salesman. Morepopularly known as Joe Biden today, he is reportedly the “eldest of four siblings in an Irish Catholic family.”
Biden, a law graduate from Syracuse University in New York in 1968, has dedicated over 40 years of his life as a public servant and counting. He is the oldest U.S. president ever elected and he was also the fifth youngest senator in history when he was elected to the U.S. senate in 1972 at the age of 29. Joe Biden then went on from being Delaware’s longest-serving senator with six terms under his belt to being the 47th vice president of the United States under the Obama administration.
However, Biden’s life is not without challenges. His first wife, Neilia Hunter Biden, died tragically from a car crash in December 1972 along with their infant daughter, Naomi, while their two sons Beau and Hunter, were seriously injured.
But life does go on. Biden would meet his second wife Jill Taylor Jacobs in 1975 through his brother and the couple would marry two years later with the encouragement of his two young boys who were only 6 and 7 years old then.
The story, which Biden himself recounted, goes like this: One morning, Beau and Hunter walked into Joe’s bathroom while he was shaving, clearly wanting to say something but “they were having trouble getting started,” a news article reported. After much difficulty, Hunter finally managed to blurt out, “Beau thinks we should get married.”
Joe clarified in his interview that “by we, Hunter was referring to the four of them — himself, Beau, Joe, and Jill.”
“‘Well,’ Beau said, ‘we think we should marry Jill. What do you think, Dad?'”
Joe and Jill did just that and in 1981, they would have a daughter which their then young boys would name Ashley Blazer.
This is probably the part of the story where people would usually say, “and they lived happily ever after.”
But in reality, life really, is not without heartbreaks. Biden’s eldest son, Beau—a decorated war hero—died in 2015 at age 46 from Glioblastoma, an aggressive type of brain cancer.
The death of his son was instrumental to Biden’s decision not to run for the 2016 presidential election. Even though it was his late son’s wish for Biden to take another shot at presidency—which he first tried in 1988 at the age of 44—Biden instead campaigned for Hillary Clinton.
At the time, Biden was unable to honor his promise to his son. He declined the chance saying that the “pathway to presidency was too difficult for a family still grieving Beau Biden,” Time Magazine reported.
But finally, Joe Biden had not only made good of his promise to his son; his dream of becoming a president of the United States also came true today.
And now that the election is finally over and he got the job, it is Joe Biden’s turn to make his promises to the people of America a reality. Among the Biden-Harris administration’s first order of business, he says, is to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement and of course, control the coronavirus pandemic that continues to wreak havoc across the United States.
This is just the start as there are many other issues that the administration must address as well. For instance, the plans to roll out for education and plans to advance racial equity across the American economy, among many others. Then there is also the matter of uniting a greatly divided America on top of the job losses the country recently suffered and the economy that has taken a downturn because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Read the Biden-Harris administration plans here.
Today, the Trump Administration officially left the Paris Climate Agreement. And in exactly 77 days, a Biden Administration will rejoin it. https://t.co/L8UJimS6v2— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) November 5, 2020
When @JoeBiden and I are in the White House, we’ll listen to the experts when it comes to public health, create a pandemic board that oversees testing, and make COVID-19 testing, treatment, and vaccines free for all Americans.— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) October 31, 2020

A United States president has plenty of things on his plate but we, the LGBTQ community, can rest easy as we are part of the Biden-Harris administration’s plans just as we had been when he was vice president. Read his plan for the LGBTQ community here.
To know more about Joe Biden and his accomplishments while he was serving as senator and eventually, vice president of the United States, read here.
The Adam4Adam community would like to extend our warmest congratulations and best wishes to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on their election as President and Vice President of the United States respectively.
We’re in for years of misery. It’s going to be another Obama administration whose economic recovery was the slowest since the 1940s. Get ready for crushing taxes, massive job losses, more businesses going under, strict lockdowns, attacks on our freedoms and micromanagement of our lives on a scale that the average Biden supporter has no understanding of. Add to that Antifah, Black Lives Matter and their Marxist driven violent agenda. When they’re marching through your neighbor your life and property won’t be spared because you’re yelling ‘but I voted for Biden’. With the black, hispanic and gay communities waking up… Read more »
wow I didn’t know you had a talent to predict the future.
Trump didn’t take the country back. He made it worse.
Seems like you’re tRUMP supporter. Do you make more than 400K? Do support tRUMP’S anti LGBTQ policies? Do support his racism? Enjoy your life….
I support free assembly of people, free commerce, freedom of speech and free agency instilled by the constitution where the power is supposed to be given to the people. If you thrive on those idiot wedge issues then I wont lose sleep when the mRNA vaccine never tested in history gives you cancer.
Wayne, saying Trump is anti-LGBTQ and racist isn’t so just because you said it or some lying, delusional leftist gay said so. Let’s take racism. Give me one example. Trump signed criminal justice reform releasing small time drug offenders from jail. These are the same people, primarily African-Americans, who Kamala Harris put in prison. He created long-term funding for HBCUs. Blacks has the lowest employment on record prior to the pandemic economic shutdown. Yeah. Some racist.
not because the cheetoh made 1-2 laws to help them that it does not means he is racist.
Obama took office during a recession, trump* took over a growing economy i find so interesting the republicans have forgotten about the national debt. Under trump* it has basically grown on borrowed money. For 8 years we heard about the national debt. When one examines the facts it grew about 3 trillion that was actually due to Obama. I believe last count it is up 7 trillion under trump*. BLM and Antifa are not responsible for much of the violence. The extremest right wing groups are the cause of much of it. Remember trump* took 3 days to renounce white… Read more »
If you dont wish to challenge the established narrative of what media churns out with actual facts then yeah joe biden will definitely heal us!!!
The last 4 years wasn’t wonder years for us Americans. Pathological liar for President. Unarmed black men and women shot down like dogs or smothered to death. Corona virus killing thousands of people that the past President gave up on. President was Impeached. People in food lines for free food. Kids were pulled out of school. Military personnel was called losers, bounty put on their heads. NFL players called son of bitches. Peaceful America protester were tear-gassed authorized by Trump. President cuddling with Putin, taking his side over our intelligent agency. Lindsey graham lied on tape about his criteria for… Read more »
I hope you continue to take the next president to task on all these issues, but I think we all know that will not happen. I assume we will just hear further blame on Trump as Biden can’t control the virus, and that shooting of any individuals by cops gets swept away. Given Biden and Harris’s records on minority rights and imprisonment, you’re kidding yourself that things will get better. We just won’t hear about it from you and the media. Until there’s a viable third party nothing matters.
Matt, I was just responding to you when you said ” we’re in for years of misery ” honestly I’m physically drained from the Trump years. You seem like a level-headed guy. You know this country couldn’t afford another 4 years of Trump. They boarded up stores and secured the white house with additional fencing for a reason. Just saying. Trump was tolerated with for 4 years. Everyone knew he’d be a 1 term impeached President. I pray for unity and peace!!! I also pray that the next years don’t be misery for you but be filled with happiness and… Read more »
And you are right!!!! He will lock our country back down, mandatory masks, sell us back out to China, Come for our guns and right to free speech. But the 25th Amm. Pelosi is gearing up for was not for Trump its to remove Biden!!! Kamala becomes president and Pelosi becomes VP then Kamala can step aside and let Pelosi take control. This was the plan all along!!!!!! Kind of funny the gay community has been used in the Coup
You’re right about all that up to the point of Pelosi becoming VP. Harris can choose whoever she wants (rather who her puppet master wants).
Wow! You’ve included pretty much ALL the right wing propaganda that the trump campaign has been feeding its supporters. I am still amazed at the number of people that still swallow all the lies, half-truths, and things taken out of context as true. You might want to research any and all of your accusations that have no foundation in fact.
take a look at how many lies you have been spoon fed the last 4 years and look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself damn was i really that blind or just filled with propaganda hate
Exactly right…but don’t forget higher gas prices too.
wow I am so happy to see someone on this site state the truth. Gives me faith not all those in this community are lost.
Matt, you are exactly right. What kind of idiot raises taxes in the middle of a recession? The Left always says Trump lies. Really? Joe Biden is a major liar and a plagiarist. Doesn’t matter. He won’t be there for long. Pelosi has her 25th Amendment invocation legislation ready to go. Harris is a fraud. I know. I live in California. First, she is only 25 percent Black and only identifies as such because it’s politically expedient.
she is Indian and black, her dad is Jamaican her mom is Indian, where the fuck do you get your % ? Did you fail your Maths class?
Lmao, you’re so funny; in this country since the 1800’s, “the one drop rule” was set in Louisiana. All you need is one drop of African blood, you’re black. This, is how the country see’s her, “BLACK.” Your point about about raising taxes though, resonates, I hope he just raises taxes on the $400,000+ earners. These corporations are getting away with murder, practically. The reason for the ballooning debt in this country which tRump is slapping the shit outta the poor-retired and old folks with, like it’s their fault.
Amen Matt, I can hardly freaking wait…..and a HUGE thank you out there to the “single issue” voter on ALL fronts. He will be a puppet for that clown AOC and the rest of the squad members.
Obama was THE BEST president ever, honey! and Biden will repeat, while Kamala will further it!
“We’re in for years of misery” .. ummm no, we’re in for the BEST years of our lives, honey! Obama was just the beginning! Harris for future President, too!
Since when does the corrupt fake media make the call….c’mon man everyone knows whats really going on.
oh Fox is fake now? oh well….
and why is it fake? because loser trump says so? Is he your god ?
YES all mainstream media news outlets are FAKE I liberal owns FOX. All of the oppression media sites and magazines like OUT, Pink, and the list goes on are leftist owned and want to have us gays think we are oppressed. BIG Tech is also to blame and not to mention they like to suppress free speach.
ahahahahah too funny. The whole world is responsible not the cheetoh?
Since you know tell us. Why not tell us that you knew republican state legislatures made laws to not count mail ballots before election day.
Not yet he’s not. Media projections mean nothing. Someone isn’t president just because they say so. Recounts and lawsuits have to be settled first. Once recounts are complete and states certify the result, then and only then is the election confirmed. And before triggered people go off, I’m not attacking or supporting any one candidate. It’s just how the process is. But you would think that since the media and social media are so quick to remove fake news, they just might want to hold themselves to the same standard.
we shall see… :)))
oh and like the 2016 was done fair and square? Russia wasn’t involved? so when it’s trump winning 2016 no need for recounts right?
So far most of trump’s cases have been tossed.
Weird part is even if they had gone through wouldn’t have affected enough votes to matter
You just keep believing the results are going to change. See you in 2024, when you will still be screaming about this election being crooked.
LEts not forget the said Gore won the presidency not all that long ago!!!!
“JOE BIDEN IS THE NEW PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES” Anyone who has an 8th grade understanding of US laws knows that that statement is far from true. 50 US States need to certify their elections. That can take weeks. Then, the US Congress does as well. And then the winner needs to be sworn into the Office. None of that even in a smooth election would all happen until about the third week of this coming January. This the first, and I hope it’s the last, US election I’ve ever been given numerous reasons to doubt the legality of… Read more »
ok mister the inspector. The same “fraudulent” votes are also the one that elected the orange cheetoh!
This is great news! What is interesting is to see how people voted in certain states. The reality is that Joe Biden won this election and more likely when all the electoral votes are counted, he’ll have 306 electoral votes. I don’t think there was fraud in this election. If there was, the democrats were pretty stupid to not secure the senate or keep more house seats. The current president is more likely going to look like a spoiled baby who has his ball taken away at the sandbox if he doesn’t concede gracefully. I think Trump has every right… Read more »
Mark brings up a good point. it is said that President Trump is not going to be reelected. And that Joe Biden will be the new president. Yet there has not been a corresponding switch from Democratic to Republican seats in both houses of Congress. That raises many questions.
Joe Biden has been a champion for gay rights, blacks, latino and all underrepresented citizens for almost five decades. Trump supporters are getting what Hilary supporters got in 2016. The country has spoken. I could not be happier. It was awesome seeing people celebrating all over the world. That’s a first in my lifetime. Yesterday is one I’ll always remember.
Actually if you look at Biden’s record, he’s done a lot of talking but has not done a lot of changing. This is true of much Left/Democratic /Liberal rhetoric. Voters are also willing to buy the talk. Without fact checking the walk.
Biden is not ONLY Biden, he comes with a team of very eclectic and intelligent people. Not just old white men and family incompetent members like trump’s team.
The president is not the one controlling everything.
Trump was just a clown, anti gay, anti abortion, anti everything that is modern. Biden and his team will let people live the life they want.
Dave, you cannot provide evidence of Trump being anti-gay. “Anti everything that is modern”? You cannot be serious.
I have several videos where he says that the is against gay marriage. Also I hate HIM, his old white man mentality, that dont believe in climate change, trans rights, equality, I just hate him.
He and Obama got the ACA passed. Our current ex-president spent four years trying to destroy it. John McCain gave the famous thumbs down. Millions of Americans have health insurance without fear of pre-existing conditions causing them to lose their insurance. That’s just one thing Biden has done.
Biden has done plenty of DOING, he ain’t just a buncha talk like “the former president”, honey, ya know, like all those RALLIES Trump does .. useless rallies he does just to project that image of his! talk the talk but never walk the walk
Joe Biden has not been a champion for any of those groups for five decades. He voted in favor of the Defense of Marriage Act and to cut off federal funds to schools that teach the acceptance of homosexuality. His landmark piece of legislation, the 1996 Crime Bill, ended up incarcerating thousands of African-Americans.
With the Senate remaining Republican & with a very conservative right-leaning Supreme Court, Biden has no chance to enact any relevant legislation or possess any political clout. The SCOTUS will strip ACA & abortion “rights” to a screeching halt.
Joe Biden has told students he would forgive $10,000 worth of student loan. When you look into that promise he has very little power to do that. It only covers public universities and public loans. Further, numerous government agencies would be involved. And would have to get past Congress. So in reality he made a promise that had no meat behind it. But it did get him student votes. Does that make him brilliant or does that just mean he’s going to have a lot of pissed off voters the next they have a chance to vote for him?
We can all agree that Biden has a little chance to enact relevant legislation and little political cloud, there is no way that the supreme Court is going to kill the affordable Care act or abortion rights. The Court may modify them to some extent but certainly would not vacate them completely.
SCOTUS is not going to kill the ACA. You know if Roe v. Wade was reversed, it does not mean abortion is illegal. It is up to the individual states to decide.
Thanks Rick! Glad you’re one of the SMART ONES!
The Senate is not necessarily going to remain Republican. There is one race which undecided. There are two run offs in Georgia. That’s three seats, yet to be determined, which will decide who holds power.
Biden’s first order of business is to remove the filibuster so any radical plan can be enacted but women are terrified of (the unlikely event of) having the states decide their right to kill the fetus inside them. Scared of losing such a small thing but we’ve already lost free assembly, free speech, and free commerce but we’ll gloss over that…
We made the White House Great Again by kicking out that Sudafed sniffing whackjob who’s known for crapping his depends daily. The Bible Bunker Baby will go down as one of the worse American presidents right under Warren G. Harding.
3 supreme court justices, tax reform (albeit not enough), unprecedented peace deals.. I think you are fooling yourself if you don’t think at least 40% of the country thinks he accomplished what he was elected for…
“As of press time, people across the country are taking to the streets to celebrate the Biden-Harris win..l”
And at the same time people across the country were taking to the streets to express opinions otherwise.
ahah sure with stupid guns and black pickup trucks! lol
Not so fast. They just took Pa away from him due to an audit. This is why the media shouldn’t be so quick to call things.
I wonder out loud how much of the dispute about the election of President Biden is about race. Let’s get real and tell it like it is. I wonder how Trump supporters and other white people really feel about having a half-black woman as Vice President. 91% of black women voted for Biden. That’s amazing!! Biden got tons of vote from black cities like Detroit, Philly, Atlanta, etc. That gave him the advantage because Biden really needed Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia. My point is the same as it was when Obama won Presidential elections twice. The majority of the American… Read more »
Wow, it was all about race with Obama and now that its another old white guy lets.. make it all about race… Keep with those blinders on bud… Biden is an insanely racist individual who got lucky and pandered just enough to get into the white house…
Sir, if you research and study black history you will understand why it’s always about race for me. I don’t know your race, but people who haven’t experienced racism are less sensitive about racism and could care less. Trump refusal to denounce white hate groups during the debate hurt me to the core. Hell yea, I shed a tear!!! Maybe you need to take your blinders off.
Trump denounced hate groups over 30 times but you don’t care… its all talking points. I don’t support either party, but the hypocrisy of those cheering biden and hating trump is astounding… But enjoy…
Trump is an idiot.
Why don’t you be a man and admit you’re a Trump supporter!!!! You’re one of those closeted Trump supporters. You said more than once that you don’t support either.. Bull!! You voted for him behind a closed voting booth. Lol. It’s a lot of guys like you out there. He got over 70 million votes. You ought to be ashamed of yourself but then again, you are because you’re closeted. You closeted because you realize he hate you because you’re part of the LGBTQ community. If you wasn’t gay, you would be an openly proud Trump supporter. Facts!!!
There’s something REALLY wrong with you, man. Even if he did, would you really believe a pathological liar, tek, really? So of the two whom did/would you vote for, hell, we know already, just glad he lost!
He won fair and legally unlike 45 get over it suck it up!
This right here, the hypocrisy of the last 4 years of people screaming Trump isn’t legitimate but immediately wants everyone to accept this election… both sides are a joke.
What has forever been etched in my mind, is that those calling themselves Americans because they were born here, who voted for Jim Crow, Fascism and sexisms’ in place of democracy. Isn’t that why Europeans came here, fleeing the mother countries and their oppressions. . . “No matter where you go, there you are”, “you can’t run form yourself.” Those whom voted for tRump, are not really Americans, but more of the darkest, of their mother countries; frontin’-posing as the idea of what an American really is all about. So, this is what the “new world order” is all about,… Read more »
Never forget that Joan Rivers was stopped by TMZ asking about there being a gay president in the future and she said that Obama was gay and that Michelle was trans. She later died during a routine medical procedure. Alternatively you can be a late night talk show host and call Trump a cocksucker and thats totally ‘ok’. So if you cant believe that they would scam Trump’s election when you can openly hate him….then please at least stop posting your political opinions : )
First it is NOT trump’s election.
and second, all election officials are saying that there are no facts and proofs that the election was fraudulent.
My question to you is : as an intelligent human being, why do you believe what trump says just because you hear him say it on TV or read it on twitter?
The elections polls were recorded day and night, and people from both sides were there to make sure everything was done properly.
He’s not President yet, not even President Elect yet. The electoral college will determine who will be President.
don’t cry when it happens for real though…
it already has 279 to 214?
Joe Biden is NOT “the President”. Joe Biden is the President-ELECT. We can only have one pres at a time. Plus, need to clean the STENCH out of the WH before we let Joe move in!
he will be kicked out, it’s not HIS WH dude…ahah
very early with so much contention right now and court battles
God bless you and Kamala, may you both reign for the next eight years, honey!
and thanks for bringing Pete Buttigieg on for the ride!
i hope HE gets to be on the ticket in 2028 too! ♥
Thank you President Biden! ♥
