On January 20, 2017, Donald Trump was inaugurated as the president of the United States. From the oaths and the inauguration speech, to the outfits and protests, here are some of the best reactions from Twitter.
After attending service at St. John’s Espicopal Church, Mr. and Mrs. Trump met with President Obama and the First Lady at the White House for coffee, while political leaders began to arrive at the Capitol building.
Of course, reactions to the outfits of all the ladies were aplenty.
And then the countdown began.
We are 42 minutes away from progressives discovering that we still have combat troops in Iraq.— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) January 20, 2017
Justice Clarence Thomas is the first African-American justice to give the oath to the VP.
Now we learn Justice Thomas doesn’t talk in Court that often bc it makes the other justices feel insecure about their voices.— Mary Katharine Ham (@mkhammer) January 20, 2017
More words than Clarence Thomas has spoken his entire time on the bench.— Jeffrey Wright (@jfreewright) January 20, 2017
It began raining when President Trump took the podium.
Everyone is seated in clear plastic ponchos, so I’m assuming Trump is going to smash a watermelon with a giant mallet after his speech.— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) January 20, 2017
Reactions to President Trump’s speech were a mixed bag.
To summarize the inaugural:
Dear Washington Establishment,
We bring you war.

Trump ran against both parties. His speech was against both parties. People are tired of both parties. This isn’t hard.— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) January 20, 2017
I’ll be unembarrassedly old-fashioned here: It is profoundly depressing and vulgar to hear an American president proclaim “America First.”— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) January 20, 2017
I just flipped to MSNBC to hear Chris Matthews describe Trump saying "America first" as "not just racial, Hitlerian."

If you thought the inauguration would end the hysterics among the Left, think again.
If you thought you'd never see anything on TV as frightening as 9/11, this was it. But the consequences of this are far more damaging
