Brayden Harrington, who bonded with Biden over stuttering, to appear in prime-time inauguration special
(CNN)Brayden Harrington, the 13-year-old New Hampshire boy who bonded with President-elect Joe Biden over their shared experience with stuttering, will be part of the prime-time special capping off Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday evening…
“In the segment, Harrington reads a famous line from President John F. Kennedy’s Inaugural address: ‘Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.'”
“…He’s come a long way and I’m pretty happy for him. When I first met him, it was in February and he came this far,” Harrington said. “He basically has the whole country in his hands, and I know he’ll be good at that.”
And in your mind compare it with Mel’s hubby, you know, Being Better:
…and that’s why this is a great, good thing.
