Biden brings Thanksgiving pies to first responders in Nantucket

NANTUCKET, Mass. (AP) – President Joe Biden delivered at least a half-dozen pumpkin pies to Massachusetts firefighters during a Thanksgiving event on Thursday, and his toddler grandson left with a red firefighter hat covering his blond curls.

“Oh, wow,” Biden was heard saying when he saw Beau Bauden, who is almost 3 years old, coming out of the headquarters building wearing a hat. The president was with the firefighters who lined up in front of the building to meet him.

Earlier in the day, Biden expressed his gratitude for firefighters and other emergency personnel when he and his wife, Jill, spoke by phone to NBC’s anchors Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York.

“I want to thank the firefighters and police officers who were the first to respond. They never take a break,” he said during the conversation. Later Thursday, the Bidens spoke with units from each of the six branches of the U.S. military, stationed in Europe, at sea, at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and at Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, the White House said.

“We remember them every day,” he said during the show. “God bless our troops.”

During a brief call with reporters, Biden said he hoped the incoming Republican-controlled House would continue American aid to Ukraine. He also said his team is involved in negotiations to avoid a freight railroad strike in early December it could further disrupt the economy.

After the visit, Biden returned home to Nantucket where he is vacationing with his family, including son Hunter and his wife Melissa – who are Beau’s parents – and daughter Ashley.

They are camping in a sprawling waterfront compound along Nantucket Harbor owned by David Rubenstein, co-founder of the Carlyle Group, a private equity firm. Biden celebrated Thanksgiving at home in 2021.

The Bidens have a more than 40-year tradition of spending Thanksgiving on the island of Massachusetts.
