- President Biden welcomed three Democratic Tennessee lawmakers to the White House Monday, weeks after they faced expulsion votes for disrupting legislative proceedings by staging a pro-gun control demonstration.
- Biden, 80, called it an “honor” to have the so-called “Tennessee Three” – Justin Jones, Justin Pearson and Gloria Johnson – join him and Vice President Kamala Harris in the Oval Office, but gave no indication when or if he would extend a similar invitation to the victims of the school shooting that sparked the protest or the hero cops who prevented a worse tragedy.
- Jones, Pearson and Johnson caused a stir earlier this month when they took to the state House floor with a bullhorn to protest in favor of stricter gun control measures moments before protesters stormed the Tennessee Capitol Building.
