Biden stated in an interview with US Magazine in 2016 "I have a rule for every single staff member who's ever worked for me in 42 years: If you ever come to work when your kid has an important function, no matter what you're doing for me — if you ever show up for me and you miss your wife's birthday or your husband's birthday or your kid's thing, don't work for me. And I mean it. That is the God's truth. I can swear on my word as a Biden.” #happyagain #infinitynp #widows #widowers #widowed #youngwidow #suddenwidow #cancerwidow #infinityforthewidowed #remarriedwidow #JoeBiden #NeiliaBiden #NaomiBiden #BarackObama #AmericanPromiseTour #SyracuseUniversity
