We have all been locked out of something before. I once got locked out of my car back in the day and had to pay a locksmith fifty dollars to get my car open.
People get locked out of things all the time, no matter how powerful, rich or poor you might be you have been locked out of something.
That being said, you would like to think that the President of the United States wouldn’t get locked out of his home or his workplace right…RIGHT?
President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden were awkwardly left out of the White House on Wednesday without anyone to let them inside, according to reports.
The Daily Mail reported that hours after Biden’s inauguration, the Bidens and their entourage of family and friends made their way to their new home — a building vacated earlier that morning by then-President Donald Trump and his own family.
Video shows the pair standing for a few moments as “Hail to the Chief” was playing. On the video shared by the Daily Mail, it appears as though they were waiting for the door to magically open for them for about 10 seconds.
In fact, you’d expect an eager person to be on the other side of that door waiting for a well-choreographed door pull, as inaugurations generally leave no detail overlooked.
The door finally did open, but the strange moment went viral.
The lack of a timely door opening didn’t go unnoticed by former White House staffers.
“There was a protocol breach when the front doors were not held open for the first family as they arrived at the North Portico,” Lea Berman, the former White House social secretary for President George W. Bush, told The New York Times.
Meanwhile, former long-serving White House curator Betty Monkman told the paper, “The delay in opening the door did puzzle me a bit.”
