Inauguration Day

And nothing bad happened. The Orange Emperor had already fled with the kids to Mar a Lago by the time I had Second Coffee. His followers stayed home. Pence showed up and did the usual presidential duties. Lady Gaga did the national anthem and Jennifer Lopez did This Land is Your Land.

Sen Roy Blunt, of all people, spoke for the GOP and did a nice speech on the nation as work in progress. The whole thing was set up for a unity theme. I but that doesn’t last long.

Biden’s speech was on that and also on the importance of facts and lies. Shared reality, i didn’t hear him say.

Apparently there were 25,000 National Guard soldiers in DC today. Nobody was taking any chances with the MAGA terrorists.

Don the Con pardoned dozens of GOP criminals (and a Democratic one, too) on his way out the door.

I should note that the #TrumpDeathToll reached nearly 406,000 today. More than our World War 2 dead, for nothing but a a fake billionaire’s ego.

I’m sure Comrade Bernie didn’t mean it. . .but he launched a thousand memes at the inaugural.
