Biden Swears In Appointees in Virtual Ceremony

There have been few moments in our history, in my view, when our nation has been more tested than we are now. Few in public service will matter more, when it will matter more. And history is going to measure us, and our fellow Americans will measure us, by how decent, honorable and smart we’ve been in terms of looking out for their interests. We have such an awful lot to do, but I know you. I know your heart, your dedication, your commitment to this nation. And I know you can do it. And we’re going to do it by leading with one core American value: humility. If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you, I will fire you on the spot. On the spot. No ifs, ands, or buts. Everybody, everybody is entitled to be treated with decency and dignity. That’s been missing in a big way for the last four years. We’re going to be judged whether or not we restored the integrity and the competency of this government. Raise your right hand and repeat after me. I, state your name, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. That I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same. That I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion. And that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office of which I’m about to enter. So help me God.
