The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Today the Transition ends and the Presidency begins.



To be fair, we are lucky to live in a time and a country where the hand over of power is done with an election, followed by a handshake and an inauguration ceremony.

There will be protests. And not just today. But for the next four years.



But Presidents, even orange ones, deserve a Presidency thread with a YUUGGE OP. And I doubt others in this forum were up to this task.

At 12 Noon EST, the Chief Justice of the United States will swear in Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States.



"I, Donald John Trump, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. So help me God."

This is real life. This is happening.

By nearly all metrics. The country is on the right track. The stock market, an all time high. Unemployment, at historical lows. More people covered with health insurance than ever before. Yet, the American people chose to "shake things up". Because. America. And chose this man to sit in Resolute desk.



With all change comes apprehension. Some hopeful. Some fearful. I for one will earnestly hope and pray for the continued success of our country. And that truly we keep America Great (again).

But if not. It's been a great ride.



Spoiler:


While we're still here on Earth and before the Russians hack 2+2 again, let's use this thread to CHEER. To CRY. To ANNOY. To LAUGH. To call each other RACIST. For you guys to have progressive dick measuring contests. To discuss our impending doom.

The transition is over...

TRUMP IS PRESIDENT.

I feel like "the banality of awval" should be memorialized in the title for the first version

I forget who coined that, but bravo to them.
