Montel himself confirmed the brief romance a year ago in a tweet: “@KamalaHarris and I briefly dated about 20 years ago when we were both single. So what? I have great respect for Sen. Harris. I have to wonder if the same stories about her dating history would have been written if she were a male candidate?” he said in response to a tabloid journalist.

President-Elect Joe Biden Announces COVID-19 Advisory Board & Urges Americans To Wear Masks In Fight Against Coronavirus

Joe Biden addresses the nation with a briefing about the newly formed COVID-19 Advisory Board on Monday morning (November 9) from Wilmington, Del.

The President-Elect revealed the board, which consists of 13 doctors and scientists and will be led by Dr. David Kessler, former Food and Drug Administration commissioner, Dr. Vivek Murthy, former U.S. Surgeon General, and Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith, a professor at Yale University.

During his speech, President-Elect Biden urged Americans to wear masks to aid in the fight against coronavirus as we wait for a vaccine.

“So please, I implore you, wear a mask, do it for yourself, do it for your neighbor. A mask is not a political statement, but it is a good way to start pulling the country together,” he shared.

He also spoke about the promising vaccine news, but reminded Americans that “we’re still facing a very dark winter” and that “there’s a need for bold action to fight this pandemic.”

“The bottom line, I will spare no effort to turn this pandemic around once we’re sworn in on January 20th to get our kids back to school safely, our businesses growing and our economy running at full speed again,” Biden added.

“This election is over,” Biden said. “It’s time to put aside the partisanship and the rhetoric that designed to demonize one another. It’s time to end the politicization of basic responsible public health steps like mask wearing and social distancing.”

Watch the full briefing below:

Biden has been wearing a mask himself throughout his campaign.

George W. Bush Calls Joe Biden & Kamala Harris to Congratulate Them on Victory & Calls Election 'Fundamentally Fair'

George W. Bush is congratulating Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

The 74-year-old former President of the United States gave his well wishes to President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris on Sunday (November 8).

“The fact that so many of our fellow citizens participated in this election is a positive sign of the health of our democracy and a reminder to the world of its strength,” he said of the election in a statement, the results of which the current President continues to dispute without evidence.

“No matter how you voted, your vote counted. President Trump has the right to request recounts and pursue legal challenges, and any unresolved issues will be properly adjudicated. The American people can have confidence that this election was fundamentally fair, its integrity will be upheld, and its outcome is clear,” he went on to say.

“He [Trump] earned the votes of more than 70 million Americans — an extraordinary political achievement. They have spoken, and their voices will continue to be heard through elected Republicans at every level of government.”

“Though we have political differences, I know Joe Biden to be a good man, who has won his opportunity to lead and unify our country. The President-elect reiterated that while he ran as a Democrat, he will govern for all Americans. I offered him the same thing I offered Presidents Trump and Obama: my prayers for his success, and my pledge to help in any way I can,” he continued.

“The challenges that face our country will demand the best of President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris — and the best of us all. We must come together for the sake of our families and neighbors, and for our nation and its future. There is no problem that will not yield to the gathered will of a free people. Laura and I pray for our leaders and their families. We ask for God’s continued blessings on our country. And we urge all Americans to join us in wishing our next President and Vice President well as they prepare to take up their important duties.”

Here is how the President is handling the election loss.

Joe then took the stage to deliver his own speech, to share a message with those who voted for Donald Trump.

“For all those of you who voted for President Trump, I understand the disappointment tonight. I’ve lost a couple of times myself. But now, let’s give each other a chance,” Joe said. “It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again. And to make progress we have to stop treating our opponents as enemies.”

After their speeches, Joe and Kamala were joined on stage by their families, including Joe‘s wife Dr. Jill Biden and Kamala‘s husband Douglas Emhoff.

Is It Madam or Madame Vice President? Kamala Harris Is Now VP-Elect!

Now that Kamala Harris has made history to become the first female Vice President of the United States, you might be wondering what to call her.

There seems to be a lot of confusion over whether Kamala will be “Madam Vice President” or “Madame Vice President.” Well, we have the answer.

“Madam” is used before a title to address a female holder of the position when it’s spoken in English. The term derives from the French word “madame.”

Kamala‘s niece Meena Harris celebrated the election news by tweeting out “MADAM VICE PRESIDENT SOUNDS PRETTY DAMN GOOD!!!!!!!!” This confirms that “Madam” should be used instead of “Madame.”

You might also remember that the CBS series Madam Secretary, about a female secretary of state, used that spelling as well!
