Tom Hanks Set To Host Biden’s “Inauguration TV Special” Next Week

What do you do when you’re not going to have millions of people coming to your inauguration in person – either due to Covid restrictions, or perhaps just plain old apathy? 

You enlist Hollywood elites to create a virtual reality to replace actual reality. This is what Joe Biden and Kamala Harris appear to be doing for their upcoming inauguration. 

In what is bound to be a snooze-fest, Tom Hanks is going to be leading a TV special for the inauguration of President-Elect Biden next week that will air on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC, according to the LA Times.

The “special” is also going to include Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato, Ant Clemons and Jon Bon Jovi.

Grammy nominee Ant Clemons will also be part of the special. Clemons wrote this week: “To say that this is a dream come true would be an understatement. 2020 was accompanied with so much weight from so many angles … we were inspired to create something that could serve as a bit of hope through such trying times. I can only pray that the same hope we felt while writing this song, shines throughout this presidency as we step into a new chapter.”

Timberlake commented: “Hopefully the theme of 2021 is redemption. What an honor. … We got the phone call to be asked [to perform for the inauguration], and I was like, ‘Uh … yes?’”

The Presidential Inaugural Committee is also hosting a fundraiser on Friday that will include actors from the shows “The West Wing” and “Scandal.” 

Hey, I’m not a politician, but I play one on TV!

Inauguration events will also include former Presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton, the Times noted. Presidential Inaugural Committee Chief Executive Tony Allen concluded: “It is time to turn the page on this era of division. The inaugural activities will reflect our shared values and serve as a reminder that we are stronger together than we are apart, just as our motto ‘e pluribus unum’ reminds us — out of many, one.”

We can’t wait to see the ratings.
