[Ed. – Living dangerously. Maybe the Democrats reasoned they couldn’t do much worse by just yanking some passerby off the street and naming him president.]
A designated survivor will not be chosen for President Biden’s joint address to Congress on Wednesday, and several Cabinet members will not attend the speech in person amid the ongoing pandemic.
Usually, presidents designate a high-ranking official to stay in a secure location as they deliver their annual address to lawmakers in case of a catastrophe at the Capitol that kills the president and Cabinet officials in attendance.
However, Biden’s speech this year will be limited to 200 lawmakers, Biden administration officials and staff due to limitations during the coronavirus pandemic. White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed on Tuesday that most of the president’s Cabinet will not be watching the speech in person, so a designated survivor will not be selected.
