Mayor Sue Himmelrich Snaps This Photo With President Joe Biden, as He Passes Through Santa Monica Airport

US President Joe Biden passed through the Santa Monica Airport on Wednesday. He was only in town for a half hour, as Marine One ferried him from LAX.

"Yes, I had the honor of welcoming our President to Santa Monica. What a hero and a mensch," Himmelrich posted on her Facebook page. Mensch is Yiddish for a really good guy.

There were the usual traffic tie-ups on the Westside when a Democratic president passes through on the way to local fundraisers. Biden met with adoring fans in Brentwood and Orange County; adoring enough to cough up $2000 a plate to attend a fund raiser, anyway.

Himmelrich is not running for re-election. Her term ends in December. Mayor is a largely ceremonial post, elected by the 7 City councilmembers in Santa Monica.

Wonder if he sniffed her hair like he usually does??? She might be a little old for him though...
