U2 vocalist Bono gave President Biden cheers through the State of the Union speech when the president boasted of accomplishments in the past two decades.
Bono, who was invited as the guest of Initially Girl Jill Biden, clapped on many instances in Mr. Biden’s speech, together with when he touted infrastructure investments and U.S. competition with China, as very well as Mr. Biden’s thrust for a billionaire tax.
The “Beautiful Day” singer, who was sporting sunglasses and donned black for the speech, is normally a supporter of liberal will cause and social justice endeavours.
Bono sat beside Paul Pelosi, the partner of previous Home Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Also seated in the initial lady’s box for the speech ended up Ukrainian Ambassador Oksana Markarova and the mom and dad of the late Tyre Nichols who died at the fingers of Memphis law enforcement officers.
