Republicans gonna be posting about crowd size vs. Donald Trump in about 1 year, and the wingnuts will say “Yeah, see!” and remember none of this.
i kind of wonder what’s the point of having a public inauguration if it can’t be public. hold it at the whitehouse, keep it physically small ( since it’s already small in practice now )
In these days of Covid, I’d be for not having a big public inauguration ceremony even if the attack hadn’t occurred.
The day of, I’d wager.
We’ve done fine before.
If the White House were to stream the inauguration on their website (I’m not sure if they’re already planning to do that) then they would have hard viewership data (how many people were viewing it at any given time.)
With ~20k troops massing in DC to protect the inauguration, Trump is finally getting big military spectacle that he has been wanting for so long.
I’d say they should just hold the inauguration in the Capitol building with only congress in attendance.
How many people were present when LBJ took the oath on Air Force One?
Biden was elected to get to work cleaning up Donny’s mess. F%&k all the pomp.
27, not including flight crew. Side note: First time it was administered by a woman, Judge Sarah T. Hughes.
Yeah. That wasn’t the Air Force One oath referred to in the question, of course.
This is totally normal for a functioning developed country. Completely fine.
Christ, how did I end up on this timeline?
Fuckin’ Fascists ruin everything…every fuckin’ thing.
Stop the Steal!
That they do.
Still, holding a big ceremony amid a pandemic is highly unwise anyway.
Got this e-mail. It’s a fund-raiser, but they say they will count viewers. I’ve redacted some personal information.
As COVID-19 cases continue to rise across the country, Joe Biden has urged Americans to enjoy his Inauguration from home.
If we can get every single City Democrat to commit to watching the Inauguration, we can blow Trump’s Inauguration attendance numbers out of the water. It’ll be humiliating!
So we need to collect a record of every single Democrat viewing the Inauguration on Jan 20th. But that’s just 6 days away!! So help us out and register by midnight, xxxxxx.
xxxxxx: Will you RSVP and commit to virtually viewing Joe Biden’s Inauguration?
Bet Biden’s inauguration gets better ratings than old what’s his face…
