Sanitizer-In-Chief Stands Out Among Stars At Biden's Inauguration

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. There were a lot of established stars at President Biden's inauguration - Gaga, Bruce, Garth, J.Lo, the young poet Amanda Gorman.

He earned some nicknames on Twitter, including sanitizer-in-chief. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
