(RepublicanNews.org) – Serving as president involves more than sitting at the head of the nation’s executive branch. It’s more than giving an annual State of the Union address or inviting Super Bowl winners to the White House. It also means putting their best foot forward and honoring tradition. Apparently, that consideration is lacking from President Biden’s arsenal.
Every sitting president for over a hundred years has tossed out the first pitch for Opening Day for the Washington Nationals except one, but we’ll get back to that in a second. On Tuesday, March 30, the Nationals confirmed to The Washington Post reporter Chelsea Janes that President Biden wouldn’t attend Thursday’s season opener.
President Biden will not be throwing out the first pitch at Opening Day at Nationals Park Thursday. When asked, Nats confirmed he will not throw out the first pitch, but a spokeswoman said “We look forward to welcoming President Biden to Nationals Park in the future.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed that report during her daily press conference. According to her, Biden was “eager to get out to Nationals’ Stadium,” just not this week. She did say she expected Biden would have something to say to baseball fans within the next few days.
Here’s the kicker: As The Gateway Pundit reported, Donald Trump missed tossing out the first ball in 2017 due to a scheduling conflict. However, there appears to be nothing on Biden’s schedule for this Thursday. What gives?
