You know, this is kind of a big deal:
President-elect Joe Biden on Tuesday introduced key members of his economic team at an event in Wilmington, Delaware, including Janet Yellen, who would be the first woman to serve as Treasury secretary. https://t.co/IHipWbDq8D

But he did take one question *before* the event started. . .
“Mr. Preisdent-elect, how does your foot feel? How’s your foot?” asked the journo.
Joe Biden responded with, “God, thank you for asking.”

But if journos did ask him a question, we bet they’d ask about Lin-Manuel Miranda writing a musical about Janet Yellen:
Joe Biden is openly asking @Lin_Manuel to write a musical about Janet Yellen as the first woman to be Treasury Secretary.
