President Joe Biden gave his second State of the Union address to Congress and a guest in particular was a familiar face for some viewers: Bono, the lead singer of the rock group U2. Now, a video clip has emerged in which Bono was totally ignored by First Lady Jill Biden.
It has been noted that the musician and longtime advocate attended as a guest of first lady Jill Biden. He’s the cofounder of the ONE campaign, which has targeted poverty and preventable diseases, as well as (RED), which fights HIV/AIDS in Africa.
The first lady’s guests also included the mother and stepfather of Tyre Nichols, the 29-year-old man who was killed last month by Memphis police.
Guests were invited “because they personify issues or themes” that Biden is addressing in the speech, or important policies for the American people, the White House said.
Bono was seen sitting next to Paul Pelosi, the husband of former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. It was Paul Pelosi’s first visit to a joint session of Congress since he was attacked in October by a hammer-wielding man who broke into the couple’s California home.
Check out the video clip below:
LOL Bono got snubbed by the first lady… LOL
Bono is not used to getting snubbed, he thinks more highly of himself than anyone in that room combined. pic.twitter.com/zHCMC6rtv6
