There was a clear historical significance to Joe Biden being sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. The number is not only connected to the passing of the torch of democracy from the 45th administration to its newest, but it is also significant in that the numerals are the same as the age Biden's son, Beau, was when he died due to glioblastoma multiforme, the most common form of brain cancer.
Biden's daughter Ashley spoke about the connection between father and son in an interview with former first daughter, Jenna Bush, for the Today Show.
Ashley said that her brother was a fine man and one of integrity. She said he had a fun, goofy side and a great sense of humor.
"I just miss just being with him, just in the same room saying nothing. He was 46 when he passed. Dad will be the 46th president," said Ashley to Jenna.
She was seen with the Today show host along with the president's grandchildren. Hunter's daughters Naomi, Finnegan, and Maisy and Beau's daughter, Natalie, joined their aunt for the interview.
