President Joe Biden announced via Twitter on Friday that he and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden wished a “joyous and full Mid-Autumn Festival to all those celebrating.”
The “Mid-Autumn Festival” is a regional holiday typically observed in mainland China and other East Asian countries, and is not recognized as a federal holiday by the United States.
“Jill and I wish a joyous and full Mid-Autumn Festival to all those celebrating,” Biden’s official Twitter account posted on Friday. “Over the next few days, families will gather, giving thanks and praying for health and happiness. My family joins yours in hoping your festivities lead to an abundant harvest in the year ahead.”
The Tweet Source label for the post was listed as “The White House.”

Website China Highlights reports, “In China, Mid-Autumn Festival is a celebration of the rice harvest and many fruits,” and “Ceremonies are held both to give thanks for the harvest and to encourage the harvest-giving light to return again in the coming year.”
Biden took to social media last week to declare MAGA “extremism” from those who still doubt the results of the 2020 election to be a “threat” to the “soul” of America.
The official @POTUS Twitter account wrote that “The MAGA agenda represents an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic,” and claimed that conservatives do not “respect our Constitution” or “recognize the will of the people.”
In two more tweets, the @POTUS Twitter account called “MAGA proposals” like protecting the southern border a “threat to the very soul of this country.”
The @POTUS account added, “America respects free and fair elections. We honor the will of the people. We do not deny it.”
The social media tirade on Biden’s Twitter account comes after his “Red Sermon” speech that used much of the same rhetoric, and after he said that U.S. citizens would need fighter jets to fight back against his regime.
