Earlier this week the White House said that President Biden wouldn’t deliver a live address on the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and would release a recorded message instead. That video was released yesterday evening:
20 years after September 11, 2001, we commemorate the 2,977 lives we lost and honor those who risked and gave their lives. As we saw in the days that followed, unity is our greatest strength. It’s what makes us who we are — and we can’t forget that. pic.twitter.com/WysK8m3LAb

Suffice to say, many are viewing Biden’s message of “unity” as ironic, considering the source and comments past and present.
