While Americans gathered with their families — with or without Dr. Anthony Fauci’s blessing — and in many cases stretched their budgets amid growing inflation to serve up a bounty fit for their loved ones, President Joe Biden shook his decades-long honed blue collar schtick to feast at the Nantucket mansion of private equity billionaire David Rubenstein.

According to the American Farm Bureau Federation, the cost of the classic Thanksgiving dinner of turkey and sides is up 14 percent this year, which results in an all-time high of $53.31 for a family of ten.

Sitting around the Biden Thanksgiving table were Hunter, Melissa, Ashley, Naomi, Finnegan, Maisy, Natalie, Hunter Jr., and (baby) Beau Biden, along with Peter Neal, Naomi’s fiancé, Fox News reported, adding that the menu included “thyme-Roasted turkey, ‘Grandma Jacobs’ Savory Stuffing,’ classic turkey gravy, roasted kitchen garden vegetables, sweet potatoes, kale, button mushrooms, and cranberry relish on Thanksgiving Thursday. Deserts included apple pie, pumpkin pie, coconut cream pie, and chocolate chip ice cream.”

The White House confirmed that Biden and his family will spend a long weekend at the Carlyle Group co-founder’s $30 million property. Yahoo Finance cited a spokesperson to report that Rubenstein, who is worth $4.5 billion, “will be traveling abroad and will not be at the dinner.”

To soften the blow of “Joey from Scranton” bedding in a billionaire’s mansion, his handlers included a quick stop to meet with service members at the United States Coast Guard Station Brant Point on Nantucket, where the commander in chief reportedly gave the servicemembers challenge coin trinkets.

Biden shared online what appeared to be a prerecorded holiday greeting that featured first lady Jill Biden as much, if not more than the 79-year-old president, who managed to get all the way through to the very end before almost flubbing his last line.

Ironically, the man responsible for leaving hundreds of Americans in Afghanistan, if not more, spoke about families having an empty seat at the table brought about by a “cruel twist of fate or accident.”

During his Thanksgiving proclamations, Biden appeared to include illegal immigrants in giving thanks to “farm workers and frontline workers, many of whom are immigrants.”

Biden also called in to speak with “Today’s” Al Roker during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, where he seemed to forget just how long he’s been in office when sharing a message to the country — he’s been in office less than a year.

“My message is after two years, you’re back, America’s back,” Biden said. “There’s nothing we’re unable to overcome, Al, and you’re one of the reasons for that, pal. You’re always up. You’re always rooting.”

Taking to social media, the president — or whoever handles his Twitter account — took advantage of Thanksgiving to push his Build Back Better socialist spending behemoth, suggesting it’s responsible for the unemployment drop off from last year when the country was largely shut down.

“Last year, there were 21 million unemployment insurance claims before the Thanksgiving holiday. Today, there were 2.4 million. It’s historic progress. Let’s keep it going with my Build Back Better Act,” the misleading tweet read.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s Orwellian fact-checkers must have been busy stuffing their faces with turkey, as the tweet escaped the scrutiny former President Donald Trump faced over every tweet he sent out.

Here’s but a few reactions to the story from Twitter:
